RS-4 #3. Plays and sounds even better than it looks.

Twins (mine is a 2008) bigrin




Mine is an early one, still has Lollars Imperial pickups which I am very happy with.
I have upgraded my tuners to locking Shallers, wouldn't go back to stock.

I have RS-4 Ser #104104 - gold top (also, 2008 purchase) ... yes , sounds even better than it looks.  The neck is perfect "fit" with my hands. 

Have you had problem with "scratchy pots"?  After cleaning - short lived fix.

Seems like a corrosion problem? Using a good cleaner (DeoxIT D5)

Also, what do you recommend for maintaining "setup" ... my 12th fret action has degraded to:  E-1 (0.062"), E-6 (0.042").

Wow yours looks exactly like mine. Mine is also a very early model. I see your serial number is handwritten. Mine isn’t but I noticed yours does not say made in USA and neither does mine.   I wonder why that is or when it changed because looking at serial numbers I have noticed that some RS4s made on the same day as mine (Jan 30, 2008) do say made in USA on them. Yours is the only other RS4 that I have seen that doesn’t say it.  I think it’s pretty cool that yours has a handwritten serial number in it. It must have been one of the first ever made which is awesome.

When I talked to Larrivee, they said that they probably hadn't figured out how to apply the serial numbers yet and that this was #3; which I assume means #4 if you include the prototype.

I found mine under a road sign. What are the odds?
