    Well, the relative success of my "SHOW US YOUR TELE" thread has inspired me to start another in the same vain.

    So go ahead and show us those Esquire / Tele-Esquire's. Give a little info on them as well if you please.

    Ill start -

    Here's my 2004 Highway One conversion. Its got a custom wound pickup by Mick Brierley which puts out 9.44k with its Alnico 3 mags, white string insulator, grey bobins for that vintage flavour (affectionately known as the old_picker special :) ). I got a Wilkinson compensated 3 saddle bridge, 1 ply white pickguard and of course a tophat knob.

    Here's my partscaster Esquire with Duncan BG1400 lead stack hiding under the ashtray cover. Quite the tone machine, cuts through the mix with ease.

    :cool:
