The RLAB (Rings Like A Bell)
The RLAB with a .050 inch copper, brass, stainless steel, or aluminum plate installed.
The metal top gives the RLAB a distinguishable different voice than any other solid body guitar.
As you can see, the plate is not for decoration. It covers to semi hollow chambers in the body but leave the meat of the body around the pickups.
The pickups are hard mounted to the body via an insert in the pickup cavity, surgical tubing replaces the standard spring, & stainless steel machine screws.
