Got more pics and a little backstory to come, but right now I got to run some errands.
gotta love a well worn Goldie
Doesn't say '73 to me ....
...going by the logo it is earlier
What does it sound like with those pickups????
What about the logo says that? It's not as white as it looks in that pic, it's got a lot of the gold missing but about a thyird of it is still there. The pickups are supposed to be Duncans, I'm going to have to pull them to check because I'm liking them a lot and I never liked p90's, got rid of 2 previous guitars I had because I couldn't get along with them. I had planned on putting an old set of Gibson minis I got hanging around in it but these p90's are changing my mind.
Looks like it could be '73 to me. Earlier LPs had the gold silkscreen closer to the pearl inlay. Nice goldie - love the honest wear and patina. Anxious to hear what P-90s are in there. Nice score and congrats on your Norlin NGD!
The font/shape of the logo looks more like the '71/72 type - i believe that around '72/'73 the logo changed to this:
As for the pickups, who cares what name is on them if they sound good?
Personally i have only limited experience with mini humbuckers, but the little i have heard of them (in guitars i owned/own) makes me believe that P-90's might be the best choice if you don't want to route the guitar (which you don't want to do *makes Jedi gesture*).
I'm certainly no expert on identifying years by logos, seller said 73 and it has a 6 digit serial# beginning with a 0, which from what I can find out makes it a 73. If you like honest wear, I'll have to post up a pic of the case, it belonged to a guy that toured the country in different bands and the case shows it, I'll remove some of the bad duct tape job first.
I just like to know. I am sticking with the P90's, much to my surprise, not being a p90 fan.
This is how I feel! That is a sweet, sweet, guitar.
Well made, well finished, well worn. Happy NGD!!!
Nice! Congrats, HNGTD and play her in good health!
looks great, honest wear and tear
you could check the pot dates and pull the pups to check
but you could just play the hell out of it and enjoy it...gold fever is contagious!
Very cool one with wear and full of MOJO. First digit in serial number is?
Seems like early to mid 73 to me...
Handsome guit. Make 'er sing!
Looks like it was played the hell put of
Never saw a deluxe with 1st number 0
According to this, six digit beginning with zero would be a 73.
