Syd Barrett Mirror Esquire

Post by WarwickMusicMan »

So, this sucker took me roughly 4 months to complete... This is my Syd Barrett tribute esquire. Complete with Fender USA pickup, Rotosound British steels, Fender Esquire decal, and the little yellow sticker on the pickguard mirror. I wish the paint color had come out more shiny, but oh well :lol:

Thoughts? :D :D

Wow, that looks awesome! You'll have to try some laser lighting to get the real 'live Barrett-Floyd' effect

Hey, new to this forum. I am thinking of doing a Syd Esquire, and I was wondering what size did you use for the mirrors? Thanks man! It looks awesome

Hi everybody. Also new to this forum, and also thinking of putting together a Syd Esquire using a Squier Tele for the work, silver leaf for the body, and various added parts.
Thinking of posting the process here if anybody is interested.

I'd like to see a build diary. Maybe in off-topic.
