That's been known for a decade or longer. The guitar was pretty thrashed when he got it - nobody knows if Clarence changed the bridge pickup and the Keith tuner (to the E string) or if someone else did before Marty got it. Both Red and Clarence said the neck PU was rewound (by Red) and the VH installed by Red with the same wiring harness (the "wrong" wiring) as Mike Nihen's Nashville West guitars...Mike got the diagram straight from Red (as did I long before I bought a pickup, but I lost mine years ago - remembered vaguely how it worked and got lucky when I bought a VHTBX).
