My dad told me this one. He was living in SFcA in 1968 when the reissues came out or at least you could order one, so he did. Ordered a 1968 GT with p-90s. My dad traded a showman top a fender jazz bass and case to get the GT.anyway after a couple months my dad got real nervous and took a ES 345 that was really used he said. Does that sound that bad? He couldn't forgive himself.
