It seemed to leak the highest treble part of the signal and the result was kind of an arch top sound of you strum up by the neck. You could hear the pluck of the pick on the strings. Very useful, switching from rhythm to lead.
    The Esquire and Tele dark positions were different, and some monkeying went on with them over the years – but more with the Esquire than with the Tele. The typical Tele dark position is basically just like running your stock tone control all the way down. (The Eldred Esquire circuit is this also, but with a much lower valued cap – less than 1/10 of the capacitance used in the Tele dark circuit.)

    Going off topic. Like all guitarists do. Something to do with all that improv we do.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    'Twas me.
    Someone mentioned "modern wiring" for a Strat and Tele and I wondered what that meant. We can now return to placing your ceramic 15k balls to the wall...
