Used Harden Esmeralda Deluxe Custom Shop


If you shop at Chicagoland music stores on the regular you might bump into a Harden guitar.  If you are already hip to Harden Engineering and have seen the Esmeralda, you probably haven't seen one like this.  This one is a custom order that was traded in. 

Weighs in at 7 lbs 12 oz.

It features a Mahogany body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard, cat's eye inlay, humbucker in the neck and a single coil monolith bridge pickup (only one built with that last option).  It also features a Jazzmaster/Jaguar style bridge which is a huge upgrade to the standard hard tail the original has.  The only thing to note would be that the trem arm sleeve bumps into high e string when depressed and released, causing it to ping.  

The guitar is matte finished and relic'd.  The neck plays like a traditional Telecaster yet the unfinished neck gives it a faster, smoother feel that you won't get hung up on.  The pickups are seriously over-wound and are high output.  They rip with just a touch of gain but clean up well.  

If you are in the market for a traditional looking, hot-rodded,  one-of-a-kind axe.  This one's for you!
