Thanks ChuckEds! Great pics! I didn't know a second pup was added to George's 425...

Yeah, that picture is about a year after he bought it, so sometime in between he had the second pickup and switch added, and a new pickguard made. He later gave it away. It's currently in the R&R Hall of Fame museum...

Thanks! So, another pup was added and a pup selector switch. What's the other switch (that all 620s/625s have) besides the jack?

Boy, I think I saw it at the R'n'R Hall and never noticed the updates...

On a one pickup 425 maybe it was a tone selector switch? Anybody? It was originally Fire glo, he had it refinished black to match John's Ric. Supposedly he played it on I Want To Hold Your Hand.

It's a toggle for tone selection. Not sure how the caps function, however...
