Billy Gibbons Esquire wiring?

There is a video on you tube of someone playing a CS Billy Gibbons Esquire and describing position one (what would be the preset bassy tone) as being a half cocked wha tone. Is their a diagram for this, or is that just the normal Esquire bassy tone?

I think (I could be wrong) that's the Eldred wiring.

Thanks, I'd not heard of that (I don't much about Esquires) a quick search for a video of the Eldred I came up with this list of Esquire mods.

A couple are called cocked wha, I might have to look for them. But I think the Gibbons one might be the Eldred but of course using the Pearly Gates stacked Esquire pick up from SD.

Looking at you tube the Eldred is the one that sounds more like what I would want. Thanks again.

Welcome!

It's a nice change for me to give an answer. I'm usually asking questions!
