    In the "bridge" position you have the pickup straight to the jack with no tone. Angrier tone here!
    In the "middle" position you have the normal tele bridge pick up with both volume and tone.
    In the "neck" position a cap works in order to delete the highs, so you have a more compressed and bass-y tone. I think this is the so-called Eldred mod, but I am not sure. BTW there are several "neck" position you can have in an esquire.

    Hope this helps :)

    Nice! That's how I have my Esquire (which was converted from an '80's Squier Tele) wired, though I also used a no-load pot for the tone control, so I have the option to take that out of the equation while keeping the volume control.

    Enjoy! The "neck" position is great for rhythmic single-note stuff (think Johnny Cash songs), and it's very interesting with some distortion, as well.

    Sounds like a country lawyer.

    Enjoy the guitar. Looks great.

    Great looking guitar and I like the notes about the chunkier neck. I had to stop messing with Squiers because the necks are nearly always too skinny.

    Yeah definitely this neck is more than a classic C, a real joy to play.
    Some squiers have thin necks but some others have a very playable piece of wood.
    It is more than worth it to check the different options, this neck and the one on my vm 72 custom are very well crafted.

    I do lo e squiers!

    One pickup, so what does the switch do?

    Very pretty guitar.
