    All Growlers were built by the Gibson crew. if it is a 94' it would be a pretty early model. The 90's versions were built in Nashville and have two mid freq. switches. Later models built in Arkansas use the standard 3 band Tobias Bartolini preamp.

    Hope this helps,

    10619 is the serial # on my Growler, and its a 5 knob-no switches version. Its an ABM bridge and Grover tuner Growler, & hardware-wise, I belive it to be much better than the Growlers with switches. the ABM bridge on these Growlers cost about $130, compared to the L type low mass bridges on the Growlers with switches...but I hate the dual truss rod thing... 20171110_084822.
