    Graham Nash's 1960 Fender Esquire Custom Sunburst Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 51465.
    An all-original, rare Fender Esquire Custom owned and played by Graham Nash. He played this exact guitar at the very last show by Crosby, Stills, and Nash ever performed. This guitar has minimal wear. The switch has been replaced, as well as the jack and jack plate. The pots date to late 1954. The guitar is in very nice condition with normal checking and minor dings and scuffs. The original brown hardcase and Grahams guitar strap accompany this guitar.

    "I played this Esquire for years. As a matter of fact . . . this was the guitar I was playing on the very last show of Crosby, Stills, and Nash ever. It's a great guitar. It's a great tone. John Gonzalez, my guitar guy for almost 30 years, says this sounds great in the front of the house. I'm so lucky."

    "I love this guitar, but it's time to move on. Somebody else should love this guitar."
