    Some footage shot late last October just made available. I have a number of NR Thunderbirds this is the most beat one, with replaced headstock, chipping finish and a covered up route for a extra pickup. I was running my '75 Hiwatt DR201 through my Hiwatt 2150 (2x15cab) miced with a SM57. I am pretty happy with the results. During the solo at the end of the song I am covering the guitar part on the upper register. http://youtu.be/OUZ5R6eMuz8
     
  2. I had a NR back in 1973 to 1978. It was a 1960 according to the serial number. Loved it but the neck snapped twice and the second time it was not really repairable.

    Cool Chris. Non reverse Thunderbirds were built from mid '65-'68
     
  5. Hmm ok. My memory is probably going then:) I do have a pic of it and been meaning to scan and post.
