    Is anyone playing one of the limited edition 2018 Double Esquires? I have my eye on one and have never had any experience with this wiring. Thanks

    Yup, here's mine...... b8fXiLviSf+SwcI%q45CDA.jpg VLIWwRR3SESfBCTur4m4rA.jpg bq6WYzJnTgylqQpfyj9lHg.jpg uBtDPDEnTviYbbaMVkxCig.jpg
    Wiring is funky, to say the least. Sorta, kinda like the wiring on a one pickup Esquire; no tone; front position, neck pickup with some kind of cap in it, middle position, neck with no cap, back position, blend bridge pickup with neck using the back knob. I can hardly hear any difference between the front and middle positions, especially at low to moderate volume.

    Thanks, I sorta had my mind made up and I got the silver sparkle one. I really think I will like the switching system.

    I went with the gold version, I dig it a lot, but yeah the wiring takes a bit to get used to.... IMG_1025.jpg
