  1. Thanks mihcmac, though I suspect my customer might balk at that price tag!
  2. Does anyone make a classic wraparound one-piece bridge (i.e moulded-on saddles) that has the G string saddle in the correct position for an unwound string? One that looks like the original Gibson one would be even better! Thanks.

    No worries! Yeah - lots of people have daft names for the colours they use. My last Jag was in 'Pacific Blue', yet it was so dark it was almost Navy Blue! Anyhow, I might try Gibson, see if they can help (yeah, right!).

    Sorry Rabs, I don't understand. I need an exact match, or the nearest I can get. That's why I'm after the code, as I'm assuming it'll relate to an automotive paint.

    Anyone know what it is for Gibson Cardinal Red? Need it for a '60s SG restoration. Thanks guys.
  8. Hi Guys, Just got this in for a refurb (it's in a real state!), but it has modern gold speed knobs fitted. Having browsed the web there seem to be a number of different knobs fitted to these, but I'm favouring classic black top hats with silver tops as being the ones most likely to have been originally fitted. Any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks.
  9. Pip - no apologies necessary. They were both occasions worthy of note by any proper petrol-head! H.
  10. Pip - Yeah, I remember that too, but this is what I was referring to... In December 2004, Schmitz gained recognition in the United Kingdom after appearing in the BBC television show Top Gear with presenter Jeremy Clarkson. After Clarkson (under her tutelage) set a lap time of 9 minutes 59 seconds around the Nürburgring in a Jaguar S-Type diesel (Season 5, Episode 5), she castigated his best lap with the comment "I tell you something, I do that lap time in a van". She did a lap in the Jaguar S-Type, and set a time of 9 minutes 12 seconds, beating him by 47 seconds. When trying to film Schmitz as she drove the S-Type, the film team were unable to keep up so used Jaguar test driver Wolfgang Schubauer to drive theJaguar S-Type R chase car, meaning that much of the lap shown on the episode was not the the 9 min. 12 sec. lap time. http://www.jaguarfor...top-gear-79583/ http://www.motoringb...es-5-episode-5/ H.
  11. Years ago I remember Clarkson going round there in a Jag S-Type. Diesel I think. Then a local lady racer, who knew the track well, got in the Jag and blew the socks off his time.
  12. It'd be useful to know which Marshall model the OP was talking about.
  13. Wow! He hit 229 MPH at one point. All from a 2 litre 4 potter (with a few bells and whistles, of course)!
