Hi Guys, new to the site. I am hoping someone can help me identify my new baby. Curious, to what the stamps mean on the neck as well as the hand written letters. What type of wood the base is made of. The pots are different although it is an E Series from the serial number the pots seem to be from 1971??? What is that green drop things soldered between the pots. I think the pickups are ceramic but?? Any information is appreciated. Check out pics. I paid $250 for it which I thought was a great deal!
