http://tippecanoe.craigslist.org/msg/3940604989.html He says it is a made in mexico but he dose not have a date. I asked for the serial number so I could try finding it. Worth it? I mean I'm digging it just for the reliqness of it but if its not worth the money I'm definitly not spending any on it. I am a bit strapped for cash anyway and would have to sell my pedal board for it.
