    Hey guys, what's a good setting for the control knobs to get a good clean balanced sound with even treble and bass? Also the Treble Tone knob pulls out and gives a different sound. Could someone explain what that is?
    Thanks,
    Jack

    The treble pull knob is a cap bypass knob. The cap cuts some of the lows.

    I grow organic carrots and they are not for sale
    Start with all the knobs turned to 10. Then roll off the neck vol a little and see if you like that.

    By the way, what kind of weird screwdriver does it take to fit into that small space to get intonation if need be?
     
  6. I always had to take the little plate with the saddles out of the slot, adjust it, and then put it back. It's a PITA. The bridge is the weakest part of a Ric, IMO. Quite a few people replace them with the Hipshot bridge.
