    Hi,
    Lucky you ! having the masters guitar ..... wow !

    on mine:
    Regarding the Volume - I was sure that it is a plain pot but after what you wrote in your reply I took out the guitar from its case
    and pushed the knob - noting pulled the knob and what a surprise ! YES it is a push-pull !!! - I did not connected yet to an amp to hear what it does (did not want to wake up my house ... ) - according to the official specs it should be plain pot that is installed on the stock PLM-1's but it seams that on our guitars which are the originals Pete required a push-pull and this is what they did ..... ****ing amazing !!!!
    what a surprise - thanks to you man !!!!!

    *the Schaller has the "S" (on the bottom )
    *the cap of the toggle is brass (little bit oxidized )
    *No serial number - many Caparisons from those years don't have serials especially custom/artist guitars that are not stock.
    *the pickups are BH-F & BH-R samples:

    I wonder, if you are so close to Pete if you can get for me a good quality scan with the pictures from the catalog/brochure ?

    Please send your pictures ! it will be an opportunity for pepole to see another PLM-1 .

    Best ,
    Amir

    Well slitherous ,

    I connected to the amp - when I pull out the knob it splits the humbucker that is selected by the toggle switch and the sound becomes bright and sounds crystalclear as a classic single coil on a tele
    the cleans from the bridge pu when it is split are simply amazing !!!!!!!

    works like magic on both pick ups ! 6 sounds !! 3 humbucker sounds and 3 single coil sounds - it is more versatile than I expected !!!


    this is the opened electronic cavity - it is all original never touched :

    you can see the push-pull ....

    Thank You man !!!!!!!!! I think that exactly for this purpose the forum exists !!! thanks again for your insight
    I was so happy that I bought this guitar and now thanks to you - you made my day !!!!!!

    I would appreciate if you can scan for me the catalog with the relevant pages - then it will prefect !!!!


    Best Regards,
    Amir

    Thank you,

    Believe me - even the hi-res pictures that I shared with you all do injustice to this guitar ! in real life it is X1000 prettier !!!
    the finish is like 3D - it has a depth effect that can not be seen in the pictures and from every angle and light direction the wood texture looks different .

    Best,
    Amir
