#sweetwater sent us #Fender 68' Deluxe Reissues to have Paul Rivera modify them with his state 2 mod just like he did for all the session guitar players in the 70-80's. We had to completely change the knob board with out tone pots, separated the channels making it true 2 channel, adding gain and gain boosts, presence, pull brigh, pull notch, relocating the speed and depth vibe controls, retune the voicing, adding 6 position fat switch, ripping out the Celestion V-type speaker and installing the #eminence #evm12l clone and so much more. We had to keep it under raps till today for Sweetwater's guitar month. These will be collector items. #guitar #guitargear #guitarist #rivera #70s #80s #history #legacy #roots. As you can see these some of these mods and topology were brought over in his days at Fender and on the current #Rivera amps. Back then session guitarists needed multiple tones on the fly since time was mega money in studios back then. You had to dial in the right tone in seconds.
