I'm betting yes, since on the 2 pup version they are hum cancelling in the middle position.

Also Andrew, how *quacky* are those 2 & 4 positions?

This thread serves as such a great microcosm of GAS and it's consequences. A request for a history lesson quickly de-volves/evolves into a discussion of the NEXT guitar acquisition. Feels like home.

Andrew,

I'm still curious, how are the in-between sounds on your RS-2 with 3 P-90s? Inquiring minds want to know!

the in between tone you will not be disappointed. The pups are of course ML  stellar. There are, as you would expect many different tones seemingly endless options virtually impossible on any of my other gits. Crisp & warm of course as expected from P90's

I'm still tinkering and just got a new tube amp recently so am in heaven

I just stumbled on to this thread in my search for answers on the different generations of the RS-2! Very informative thread and answered all my questions 

And that three P-90 RS-2 is totally awesome! Did someone mention another forum guitar?  whistling

It would be nice if one of the two members who have a Generation 2 would post a pic or two  blush

Also the Gen 4, 5 and 6 would be swell as well

That would be quite cool.

I'm curious if I could order an RS-2 with a pickguard made from their tortoise shell material. I love Larrivee's tort.

Coming soon at a website near you.  For now here are some photos of #1 of 2, of the Generation 2 RS-2's.  It is one of my favorites.

The RS-4 headstock, and the Alder body also makes it quite different as well.

from earlier in this thread......

Generation 2 - The second generation also never got past the prototype stage. There are two in existance, both made from Alder. If I remember correctly 1 was yellow and one was candy apple. I believe they were also thicker than current. The bodies were made from 8/4 Alder, where as the current bodies are made from 6/4 Mahogany. I believe both are owned by forum members.

Yup the RS-4 and Mack Amps two of the best kept secrets in the World of Electric Guitars. Wouldn't trade mine for nothing else

The Gem is really that; a Gem simple and easy to use. Great for playing at home

The Heatseeker tho only 18watts is about the loudest 18 watt that I have experienced that is a joy at band practice.

Like Larrivee boutique quality at an every day musicians budget!!
