    This Scares Me… Really

    No one mentioned the Swinger or Musiclander?

    Hendrix Monterey Strat

    With F#159751 above, maybe someone started with a complete black strat that they thought might pass, except for the early “13” large head, and this was what they came up with. As long as we’re speculating.

    And amazing that the '66 JTM45-100 is now identified and intact!

    Hendrix Monterey Strat

    Nice job on the video, @SwirlyMaple! Exhibit A. I liked the sonic background, too. I wish that strat would turn up intact. That and the T.A.M.I./ Gimme Shelter burst are two I would love to experience in person.

    Hendrix Monterey Strat

    “ Im making another video which also compares the lacquer chips on the back to photographs from the show “ Cool, hope you post that here. Issue would be if all ‘67 damage could be fully encompassed within 2021 damage. If so, that doesn’t prove it’s real, but not would seem to disprove it...

    Yes, that was my point.

    Hendrix Monterey Strat

    The putative black strat in the video was featured in 2016 "Guitarist" magazine Issue 412. There are some photos (of the assembled guitar only) and it is reported that a dismantling inspection yielded that the neck is dated 11/64, the pots are dated 12/65, and it shows "F" plate #159751. I...

    Hendrix Monterey Strat

    Other sources in the recent past described the one in the Denmark Street video as having neck dated 11/64, pots coded 12/65, pus dated 2/66, as I recall. Plus the F plate that is ca. Jan or feb ‘66 per # A few years ago I had tried to find a clear photo from either Monterey, The Savoy, Golden...

    Completely Stupid Amp Purchase - Fender Quad Reverb

    Good points about the trem. Also, if you haven’t, I recommend turning it on and leaving it on for awhile while you play, sometimes after 10 minutes or 30, heating up or molecules shifting they will just start up oscillating perfectly! Helpful to figure out what is and isn’t working. I have a...

    Completely Stupid Amp Purchase - Fender Quad Reverb

    " As I noted, the 02xxxx numbers were introduced in 1966. That AA270 schematic that was drawn in October, 1969 shows the relationship of the pre-1965 numbers…125xxx… and the FMI numbers…02xxxx. And . . . " Right, just to be certain it's clear I was just speculatin' on how they might have come...

    paul schafer has lost his mind..

    I saw Albert a lot, in various places. Once at a club in the French Quarter in the '80s, there was an atypical super dense night fog surrounding everything outside. During his set, he strolled out the side door, trailing the long cord, and immediately just . . . completely disappeared for...

    Completely Stupid Amp Purchase - Fender Quad Reverb

    The other thing I wonder about now is the '78 Super6R, which is also listed as going to 013691 OT. Did they switch from 8ohm to 16ohm speakers in the same parallel/series arrangement and designate "10 ohm load" on the back?

    Completely Stupid Amp Purchase - Fender Quad Reverb

    Hi @Steppin' Wolfe- I saw your comments above about the Fender transformer part numbers in that chart. To be honest I hadn't even noticed the designation of "export numbers". Of course those don't all designate transformers for amps intended specifically for export, but rather just as you said...
