Details of the original Shadow V

Postby reescustom » Fri Jul 24, 2015 11:47 am

Hi, I am currently building a replica of the Shadow V from the film clip "Boys are gonna rock".
I have been building guitars for over 10 yrs and I can't work out why this guitar has 3 knobs with only one EMG pickup????
If anyone knows what the third know controls can you please share it with me.

I think it's volume, tone and a boost for a Jackson pre-amp.

Maybe one of the knobs doesn't do anything, kinda like how Eddie Van Halen would do to confuse people who made unauthorized reproductions of his guitar.
