    Is there ANY way to tell how old they are, except:
    - dirt
    - wear
    - color (black = not 50s och 60s)
    - bakelite (50s)
    ???

    Maybe:
    - 3-spoke/4-spoke?
    - Color of the plastic (white in different shades)?
    - Color of the text?
    - Typeface of the text?
    - Thickness of the text?

    And the same question applies for switch knob and trem knob...

    I have NO idea. You?

    And remember, so far I haven't even considered MiM, MiJ etc...

    Pics: the black is 70s, the white are reissue (70s). s-l1600.jpg s-l1600.jpg s-l1600 (1).jpg s-l1600 (6).jpg
