Mr. Hall,

Thanks for the note regarding my Lightshow. Hopefully we'll get this guitar rocking again very soon.

I recently came across a 1959 Capri 335 which I purchased. The guitar is absolutely amazing...2 1/2" thick body and a really meaty neck. Just incredible.

The previous owner had bypassed the two capacitors which run from the bridge pickup, and said that he never understood why Rickenbacker used them, as they knocked the output down so considerably.

This guitar has a smoking hot tone, still sounds "ricky" and now I want to bypass the caps on all my ricks. Is this a common operation? And why are those caps in the circuit in the first place?

Saerch this forum with "capacitor" and "bypass"- you'll find everything you need to know about this.
