Its just occurred to me as so many Rickenbacker owners on here own previously used guitars and old ones as well how many owners know that the fifth knob can when combined with the three way selecter switch can be used as a bass pickup volume equaliser, in a set position combining with the amplifier, or as an equalization control.
All these uses are explained in the user manual that come with the guitar when new so there must be many who won't know them. Just a thought.

Yes, the 5th knob is versatile, and when replaced with a push-pull DPDT switch-pot, forms the basis of my mods:

iiipopes, I thought the push/pull pot used in your modification was no longer available.

You are correct. Unfortunately, RIC does not carry this part anymore, although aftermarket push-pull pots are.

Is there an aftermarket push/pull pot you would recommend?
