    www.tubesandmore.com

    www.musiciansfriend.com

    The pickguard screws are #3x1/2 wood screw

    The knobs are what... either speed knobs or reflector cap knobs

    The tuners... do a search for Gibson tuners or Gibson machines at musiciansfriend - you can get grover keystone or the standard keystone ones.

    Welcome to ETSG! If someone doesn't have or can't tell you where it is, then it's not available..... 8)

    Well it's a long story but I have had my wife's ex writing a program (he's a programmer) where you can plug in a serial number and it will give you back a list of possible dates of manufacture.

    Of course he has been working on it in his spare time for 6 months now but I keep my fingers crossed.

    What's he writing it in Tom? Full blown computer stuff or an existing program? (Like Excel?) Never thought about it, but it could possibly be done in Excel..... mmmmm have to think about that.

    I'm still occasionally use ancient dBase IV, and while only text based, it flies, and is a fully capable relational database product. Not suited for web use tho.
