    So, ...just when did Bill Lawrence offer cream colored L-90s? A quick web search says they were designed mid 1970s. I've owned a few of them over the years. They were succeeded by the XL-500s, also...

    The zebras are more rare than black ones. Offhand I know the Gibson Firebrand "The SG" came with a zebra in the bridge.

    The Supro and other "string through" pickups have some nifty advantages and some drawbacks. The big drawback is that you've got a pickup that surrounds the strings- it's a real estate hog and if you...

    The SG "Exclusive" came with double cream T-Top Dirty Fingers. I don't know production numbers on it but it was likely a single run.

    Ceramic magnet pickups don't sound "bad", they just sound different. Some of the best sounding pickups I own are ceramic mag.

    The Gibson Robot Les Paul cases are covered in something really close to the old Gretsch/Supro gray covering that would also suit a Silvertone nicely. I haven't seen the material in any catalogs that...

    As was stated, Seth Lover's original design called for two slug coils. Gibson added adjustable poles so the sales guys would have a feature to point at and "sell".

    Yes, Yes, depends, and yes. It is a huge PITA to change pot values on the board, less of a hassle to do pickup or cap switches. If you're changing pot values, just yank the board and use the...

    I've seen Fenders with "S 8" serial number prefixes show up on guitars manufactured as late as 1981. Your Mustang has a pot manufactured in April of '79 so the earliest it was made was mid '79.

    Was this hole drilled or is it a dent? How deep is it? If it isn't that deep you might be able to steam out most of it and fill the rest with CA glue.

    Yes, the replacement is the Switchjack. Instructions are available from Parker and it is such a rare delight to rework the foil PCB in those to accommodate the new jack, I just can't tell ya. Oh joy.

    I looked at the listing- Those pickups look more like Dearmonds than other Kay pickups but are not Dearmond product. Dearmonds were always nicely made. The Kay stuff is more crudely done.
