    I got those pics from '69 vette I think. They are both custom shop jobs. Got me gassing for a 3 pickup. If you look you see that they have 4 knobs instead of 3. I guess its volume, volume. volume and a tone.

    Both basses are more than beautiful...
    I was wandering about the tonal possibilities of the three pu... probably they cover all the spectrum, possibly with the caracter of the Tbird. anyone is experienced with this?
    Great sound to use with a great amplification I suppose.
    and what is that switch?
