    I have that as one of the options on my Esquire.

    Position 1: Straight to jack; no controls
    Position 2: Typical volume + tone, with a no-load pot on the tone control, giving me the option to remove the tone control from the circuit.
    Position 3: Eldred wiring

    I have it on a push-pull switch.

    I read that a while back on Premier Guitar and I think I will use that on a lap steel build I'm starting.I have all the components.Just have to make sure the full Tele bridge will work on it.That guy Dirk Wacker has a lot of good info.(good thing his name isn't Dick).Checkout singlecoil.com.

    I would use something less that the 4700 pF cap.
