I just got a RKS Wave guitar in trade. I don't have much into it. It is their low line instrument, but they were made in USA and were like $700 before the company went belly up about 5 years or so ago. It is mostly complete, just was missing pickups, the nut, a strap button, and all needed to be rewired. Neck is sort of like a flying V shaped headstock (kind of like the Jackson Roswell V if anybody remembers that). It is really weird - but hey - I like weird. I'll put some cheap pickups in it until I figure out if I am going to keep it or not. The body is removable and exchangeable to the guitar.

Is there any pots on the side of that or none at all?

The volume and tone are roller knobs on the inside of the open area to the right of the pickups, and the 3 way switch is on the slot on the left (you can see it if you look).

I don't have it wired yet, it doesn't have a nut on it, and right now been so busy haven't done anything. Right now the pickups are just laying in there.

That is Wild! How much does it weigh? That outer body panel looks hollow, would love to see some other angles! Good Luck!

It is hollow in the "wings". I took this to a friend that was going to put a nut on it for me (he does a better job than I do, and i work on his amps - we do a trade thing) but he still hasn't gotten to it. I probably should pick this up and finish it myself.
