    Nice!

    But this one where you're fighting neck dive isn't going to help the Thunderbird cause.

    I thought it got painted over or sanded off on Mike's bass. My EB-2 has not been broken or refinished, but the serial comes back confused anyway. I was told it was a '65 when I bought it in 1982, but based on the intonatable bridge and the fact that it has two original pickups, I don't think it could be any earlier than a '67. The serial comes back as '66, '69, '72 or maybe something else depending on where you look. Guitar dater is confused. The tuners are clovers, and Gibson started using Y tuners off and on in 1969. So, never mind the serial, I am sure it is a '67 or '68 and nobody can convince me otherwise. The orange label is intact, but the writing has faded away. The serial on the headstock matched the label note 40 years ago, so no funny business happened to it except whatever the factory did.

    Mine was stamped/engraved/branded/whatever. IIRC, the pots are from 65.

  16. From memory Cit threw some wankel rotary engines in some of these little washtubs. Ami Bi-rotor I think they called them.
    Death trap I think I’d call them.

    no, they didn’t sell them in Australia either

    They could've exported them to some country they didn't like-genocide by "car(?)".

    Congrats to the folks in Seattle for getting the Kraken started, however I'd rather y'all hadn't taken Gourde from the Lightning. That hurts. You're getting a great player.

    I haven't fought with the wiring harness. It would have to be fished out through an f-hole, and that is such a PITA that I won't be doing it. Ever. Plus, I don't have a clue how to date pots, even if the markings aren't obliterated by solder.

    Why, thank you for your generosity. I suppose this means I need to pay attention to hockey now.
