Is there any reason why you couldn't use the cocked wah wiring on a esquire using a 2 wire humbucker ?

John, I believe that would work on a humbucker as well. Smile

Not sure what value cap would give you that tone with a humbucker though. You may have to experiment a bit!

FWIW, the 'cocked wah' esquire wiring works great with a 2 wire humbucker, I used a .033 PIO cap on the tone pot, a .015 orange drop with a 3.3K resistor, and a .022 orange drop on the other leg. 3 distinct, great sounds......................
