The Red Special – New Picture #5
The metal frame and sextet of pickup switches, laid bare upon the removal of the Red Special’s scratchplate. The frame and switches are the originals, but some of the wiring, not to mention the tone pot that’s just in view here, have been replaced several times over the course of the guitar’s life.
Apologies for the out-of-focussness too…
By all means share this photo, but please credit The Red Special.com should you do so.
Don’t miss Simon’s six-part blog that goes behind the scenes of the book in much more detail
