    Well, I see how in 1974 people were learning about wax potting, and thought that it would be super quiet if you apply the same thing to a guitar circuit. There is probably an amp out there with wax poured inside, as well.

    Man, that's just "beautiful"-

    reminds me of the "great tone enchancing tips" about putting your guitar in the bathtub, with warm water, overnight... :/
    If somethings important- send a PM. I might be offline for long periods. Rock on!!!

    You are correct. That decal indicates a 76. As does the Schaller tuners. 74 would have had Kulson Wafflebacks as stock.
    Gibson under Norlin were constantly 'finding' old boxes of parts. Late 70s/early 80s they were running at the same time 2 completely different headstocks for Customs, after some veneers from the early 70s (a shorter more vintage shaped version) were found.

    How DARE YOU! I am never bringing my guitars to you again, this is so humiliating.
    Ha, it would be pretty funny if the guy really was on here though.
