I mentioned a while ago that I gave my old RS4 to the original owner.

A while back an old LS4 came my way, in rough shape and missing parts etc.

I finally found all the bits and pieces to make it playable and I'm having a ton of fun with it.

I've always loved the neck pick up on these, and the HB in the bridge is killer.
These would be from the old days of Jean winding them at home, stories you've all heard.

anyways, here's a couple pics.

Yeah unfortunately there may have been some w/o a Ser #. Obviously none on the back of the headstock - sometimes its on the fingerboard at the bottom?

HI again, so no serial number on this one.
 not stamped at the end of the fingerboard like some are.

however, has anyone else got the 4 mini toggle switches- as opposed to the blade start style 5 way switch?

Its a very cool set up, basically each pick up can be turned on/off, and the other switch is for phase change.

The switches are a bit of a nuisance but their uses are rather innovative.

I love the neck pick up alone, but adding the bridge HB PU brings a lot more depth to the table.
 Its an old guitar from our favourite brand, the tonal options are hugely superior to any start style to typical 5 way blade switch.

honestly?
 the gain on the pick=ups is so very well defined and controllable.

simply just using the Bridge HB for gain is HUGE. The phase switch, specifically for the neck and middle pick up delivers the classic Strat ( Eric Clapton- Slowhand) sound as good, if not better than my 1957 Strat did.
 yet again praising the clever and top notch builds of Larrivee.

 When Jean produced a few thousand of these, he clearly did his research and typically built some terrific electrics, even back then.

 interesting, if one looks hard enough ( as I do) ou can find them for a steal by todays standards.
