    Above; item "A & B" show the Super Magnaflux pickups. Item "C" is a close-up of the controls. The 1st knob & switch on the left control the module in MPC bay 1. The 2nd knob & switch from the left control the module in MPC bay 2. The third knob from the left is the master (only) tone control while the last knob is master (only) volume control. Item "D" shows the 5-way "Tone Spectrum Circuit" control. Position 1 gives you both pickups in series and in phase. Position 2 gives you Bass pickup only. Position 3 gives you both pickups in parallel and in phase with each other (standard Les Paul both pickups or middle switch position). Position 4 gives you Treble pickup only. Position 5 gives you both pickups in series but out of phase with each other.

    Below; item "E" is a close-up of the "Tone Spectrum Circuit" switch cavity. Item "F" shows the volume/tone & MPC control cavity. Item "G" shows the heart of an Electra MPC guitar, the MPC module bay or cavity. Item "H" show the empty MPC cavity with attention to the module receptacles on the guitar.
