    Hi all. First post after lurking and soaking up so much info for awhile.
    I am in the process of bringing back a basket case '84 Special. Found a couple of pups in a box. One is definitely a Shaw (black bobbins, Pat'd number, stamped 162 184 and reads out at around 8). The other I'm not so sure. It has zebra bobbins (pretty yellowed), and Pat'd number. It's inked stamp but first numbers are hard to read, either 076 or 026 (and that's IF the first number is really an 0). Second numbers are 181. I'm sure it's a Shaw but the worst thing is that it only measured 3.6 on the meter. Way low. So is this a Shaw with a problem inside (coil?) or something else? a
    Are there fake Shaws? LOL Appreciate any and all info. Peace

    I tried a couple times but the images are too large. Not sure how to make them thumbnails or whatever.
