Equipped with Single Lawrence Humbucker. Controlled by 1 volume, 1 tone pot and a 3-way mini toggle(coil tap/full hum)and comprised of the original CTS pots dating to the 49th week of 1981. The 25.5" scale length neck has black dot inlays and 22 medium frets on a 9.5" radius with a medium C profile. The hardware is comprised of gold sealed diecast tuning machines, a Floyd Rose locking nut, the bridge was replaced at somepoint with TRS -501 licensed floyd rose locking tremolo and black speed knobs.
