    Hey! I kinda like this guitar! looks good, probably sounds good... but I can´t help thinking is this not what most people would call a one trick pony without a switch? I mean even with that switch it is still just one pickup (I know that is said to make the strings sing more and i believe it) but... not even that ol' one-pickup switch?
    Anyway a great looking guitar!

    I've got my esquire wired that way but I've got a single coil in the bridge . I can get any tone I need , along with amp/effects settings it's very versatile IMHO
    Nice guitar too..love black

    This is my first Humbucker in a Tele and i must say it's the best decision i've ever made.

    Nice mellow sound, no Hum, more mids and Power, still enough highs with the 500 k pots.

    No switch because i love one pickup Guitars like SG Jr or Les Paul Jr.

    I did the same thing with a highway one I had.

    I put a Dimarzio Chopper T in the bridge. 500k volume and 250k tone, and a .022 cap with no switch ala Les Paul Junior.

    Best open sounding guitar.. Clean or dirty

    Love it. Tone control and volume, alongside playing skills will get a great range of tones.
