Like damn bro never seen one like it. Its claimed to be a '71, there are pickup ring mount scars evident, would it have been a p90 '54 reissue as buyer believes?
I guess what you find about dating guitars is looking at all of the aspects not just 1 in isolation. You say a logo with a dotted 'i' being a feature of late sixties, but the 70's also feature dotted i's too. Plus thats a 70's logo type only. So if you just date things on poor or partial methods then of course the guitar will seem to 'break all the rules'.what i have noticed is the late 60's guitars in uk seem to break all the rules of the latesixties decoders. The large heel was a feature of the very early ones. As is the Dotted i, two of the visible pot codes look to be way later though.
Y'know, i was looking and thinking, 'something ain't right', and i been looking, and looking, and saw nothing.I am really digging how they strung it.
I wonder what it sounds like?
Maybe you can enlighten me as to what aspect of a pickup ring is an objective bad design, as you have described it. Given they cover what is a fairly loose pickup rout they are more like objective good design - if we are truly taking the dictionary/common meaning of the phrase accurately.I couldn't have imagine such a bad design existed, especially on a reissue...
