Wire your Esquire the way Leo Fender did it back in the 1950's. Or to get that authentic Luther Perkins 'boomchicka-boom' sound made famous on the early Johnny Cash hits.

• Position #1. Bridge pickup is routed through the volume control only, with the tone control bypassed for a hotter and louder lead sound with even more high-end.
• Position #2. Bridge pickup is routed through the volume and tone control—identical to position #1 on a standard Telecaster. It sounds a bit warmer compared to the Esquire’s #1 position.
• Position #3. Tone control is again bypassed and the Esquire’s pickup is routed through the volume control and a fixed “treble roll-off ” capacitor/resistor network for a very dark tone that also has a slightly decreased output. Leo Fender intended this as a “bass preset” that would allow the ’50s guitar player to enter bass territory by simply flipping the 3-way switch. Also great for jazz players who prefer a solid body to a 'jazz box'.

• 2 Selected TAD Custom 250K Solid Shaft Potentiometers
