    Can't blame him. Sorry to see him go. Excellent workmanship.

    Correct pickup rings for '83 Custom (two pickup)

    Bridge pickup ring reads M8 593. Not sure if it's original to the guitar though. Forgot to photograph the neck pickup ring, sorry. #steelTPstudsNorlinEraLP

    Thanks @scozz. The front is presentable. The back is showing its age and use.

    We’re pretty fortunate in here...

    The only other forum I've found as informative, productive and congeneal is thelincolnforum.net (Lincolns & Continenals of all years). Was an active member for over 10 years. Pure karma - you get what you give.

    When exactly did Norlin era end?

    Certainly looks like it.

    Can help by taking measurements of the rings on my 81 Custom?

    Are you sure? I thought 70s LPs had witch hats. Mine came with speed knobs but those all broke where the pot shaft pushes in. Still have them. Perhaps I could epoxy the damaged area, drill out a hole and fit them again.

    You could use a polish instead but that would make it shiny. I polished my '81 Custom one time (2011) since I bougt it (1995). Hadn't properly cleaned or polished it ever. Only a quick wipe with a piece of cloth. From a distance it still looked nice but up close it looked a bit gunky in...

    Wiping down the body with naphta will take care of those smudges. If so desired.
