    I thought all the fender roscoe beck had was, volume, tone, pickup selector and series/parallel/single coil selectors...

    There is one other thing, although it's not a mid attenuator. If you pull the tone knob out, it mimics RB's favorite setting on his jazz (2/3 of the volume on the bridge PU, 1/3 or so volume on the neck PU). Gives it a nice growly sound, and you couldn't do it otherwise because there's only one volume control. When I want it to sound like a jazz, I use it all the time.

    ahhhh. i get it. cool feature, but now i see the importance of having 2 volumes... pretty useful, at least a blend. switches are nice, but you cant accent one and have the other only there for a little. its either both or one... interesting.

    the wiring in that thing must be monstrous.... i mean... seriously. with 2 3 way switches, a 5 way blade, as well as volume tone and this "jazz growl pull pot", it must be like a jungle.
