Electro B8 Horseshoe Pickup

Postby (pippsaxe) » Wed Mar 07, 2018 7:56 pm

So I just got maybe a late 30s, early 40s Rick Electro B8 steel. It has 8 strings, chromed plates and a volume and Tone control on the treble side of the strings. Its pickup only has 7 pole pieces. Is this normal? Did Rickenbacker even have 8 pole pickups for their 8 string models?
