    How about the extra volume potentiometer too?

    Love the color but whoever adjusted the low e and g saddles for intonation is way off. I notice things like this .. Lol

    It could indicate a problem with the guitar, either in construction, fitting of parts, or set-up.
    I usually set up my guitars with the same strings and 95% of my guitars have an almost identical “Z”-shaped saddle pattern(plain G).
    The other 5% it’s usually the G, which almost ends up like in the pic.
    Could be a clever tuning trick though. Intonate sharp, tune flat...

    Three Dyna’s or Tarmond’s might be cool!

    Me too.

    I had one of these:

    [​IMG]

    Sweet Rickenbacker Roger McGuinn Signature 370-12 string with the onboard compressor, but I didn't like the middle pickup.

    I'm 99% certain that Roger played those early Byrd's classics with a 2-pickup, Rickenbacker 360-12.

    Some sources say that this guitarist, singer and writer, disconnected the middle pickup on his Rickenbacker 325:

    I saw an older one same blue, same metal and electronics parts. This older sister has very few differences with the rival sons' jet : the 3 pots of the lower boot which are in a straight line, and the roller bridge. To me this one looks even better.

    He likes glitter.

    Very capable lads it seems. I find the production incongruous with this style of music. The metronomic perfection and rigid pedestrian arrangement drain the Zeppelin style of it’s impact.

    Remember when it was okay to color outside the lines?

    I think that is the guitar he says he based this one on in the interview.

    My personal favourite Rival Sons track:

    Welcome to the ‘80s!

    Lots of ‘70s stuff was partly jam based. Those budgets are gone.

    Yea I’m not a fan of three Filters but I like the guitar and color. You know how they say it’s the little things in life that make a difference..? Look at the blue stenciled Gretsch logo and Penguin on the pick guard on the last pic .. that really is cool to me
