    Lead tones with minibuckers and Esquire wiring

    Here is a sound clip featuring my Les Paul copy with mini humbuckers and a Tele with Esquire wiring, its the Rob DiStefano version of the Esquire.

    From the start to 0:52 seconds are the minis in humbucker mode in the middle switch position, and 0:52 to 1:34 seconds is neck humbucker and bridge single coil in the middle switch position-kind of has a P-90 vibe..

    Then comes the Esquire tones-1:35 to 1:50 is the cocked wah tone-1:50 to 2:05 is the middle position with tone control-2:05 to 2:24 is the same with the tone control bypassed.

    I just wanted to shared these sounds especially the various Esquire sound from the single pickup.
    Hope you enjoy it!

    Thanks for listening and for the comment, Bruce. I posted on the Hot Modder forum as well and described the instruments I used on the tracks.

    I'm glad I decided to change that Tele to a single p'up and rewired it as an Esquire, its like that bridge pickup goes into turbocharged mode.

    I forgot to mention that the pickups on both of these guitars are from GFS. The minis are 59 Vintage wound Alnico in bridge and neck positions-both wired for coil split.

    The Esquire has a GFS Lil' Puncher, a dual blade humbucker that I wired for coil splitting.
