If all goes well, I'll be picking up a used RS4 with P90s. 
Question: have the RS4's always had Larrivee p90s? 
Or did they start out with Lollars like the humbucker guitars? 

I'll have no history on this guitar. It's coming from a store that took it in on trade.
I'm buying it either way, but would love to ID the pickups.

Wow. That's a nice RS4.  . The one I'm getting is the exact same color scheme, but the top flame is different.
Instead of a straight across flame pattern, the flame is angled. 

Out of curiosity, do you know if The larrivee P90s are marked on the underside?
I'll probably check the pickups right away when I get the guitar home.
Make sure the previous owner didn't swap pickups.

Damn. Deal just fell through. No original case.  Price too high without the case.

I hate the idea of having this in a universal case though.  It's a weird shape to begin with.  Universal case would be a a crap fit. 
If they would knock $200 off their asking price (so I could buy the Larrivee case) - I would do it.

Now Andrew...tell the truth, you'd never put any of your Larrivees in anything but an original case.......
