    Thanks! It really does sparkle through the Orange. But, I'm unloading the Rocker 30 shortly. It's a really great amp, but it's too much volume & weight for my needs. Just ordered a Winfield Cyclone, and am extremely pleased with my Carmen Ghia.

    It's essentially a setting (which I think most Esquire's are wired up with) that adds a little more bass to the bridge pickup so it's a little more balanced with the one pickup in there... it's supposed to imitate the sound of a wah pedal cocked half way. When I decided I wanted to convert my CV into an Esquire, I found these threads:

    http://www.tdpri.com/forum/telecaster-discussion-forum/129673-converting-tele-esquire-tips.html

    http://www.tdpri.com/forum/telecast...5622-just-changed-tele-into-esquire-whoa.html

    Found lots of helpful information there in terms of tweaking it to your liking by adding different values of capacitors.

    Edit: PS I can't take credit for the aforementioned beautiful gear setup, those were just the same pics of the post I was replying to :)

    My RS "Old Friend" with a Custom Don Mare to sound like Rich Robinson's Esquire:
    This guitar is a freaking MONSTER. Ash body and under 7lbs.

    Teleman, I think you need to change your name! That is one sweet Esquire you've got there.

    You gotta love classic black. That looks great!

    Don't think you can change unless you re-register.

    Just had to throw this one into the mix....Yours truly way back when with my much-missed '58.
    There's more cool gear in the pic.Next to me is co-lead player Rick Littlefield with a mid-late '50s Country Club.2 De Armonds,3 knobs,1 PU switch and a Bigsby.Next to him is bass player Andy Merton on a (then) fairly new Dano short-scale.
    Behind me is my then-almost-new '62 Tremolux.Between Rick and me you can almost see the front of Andy's then-almost-new Ampeg B-15.At the extreme bottom right of the photo is Rick's Gibson amp.Don't know the model # but it had a 12" speaker and the tremolo speed and depth knobs were in a separate row on the chassis,forward of the others.

    Not a totally Esquire (the neck PU still under the guard) but it looks like and it will be as Esquire in a near future:
