take the photo as exemple. i'd like to know if there is another version of the way rickenbacker made their famous bass. i'm speaking about the hole under the pickguard for the electric cables of the neck pickup from the pickup switch. the one in the photo has a trasversal hole, but i have seen other rics made in a different way. to see what i mean you have to remove the pickguard. there is not a single trasversal hole but the space for the cables is made with several verticals drill holes that united make the path for the cables. can you tell me something more?
