3xP90 + Vibrola.. Enough said!

This machine doesn’t just look cool. It works and has very unique palet of sounds.

Let me open the idea of the controls:

First, there’s  Volume for neck/bridge PU’s. Also the 3-way Switch controls those as normal toggle switch does. But, then there’s the Middle pickup that has own Volume knob. Idea is that what ever selection you have with the switch, you can turn up the middle pickup to create the “2nd & 4th gear” sounds likes Strats. And if you want to play only with Middle PU, just turn the First Volume down! Besides all this cool craziness there’s a Master tone.

This same kind of schematic has been used in T.Family Rödolf.
