'02 R7 Goldtop questions

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm actually looking for buying an 2002 R7 Goldtop, and I've some questions so it will be very cool if anybody could help me ;-)

 

1) Authenticity

 

Serial Number is : 7 2 561 so if I apply what I saw in M. Yoshida's topic I can say that it's a 1957 Reissue produced in 2002 and the guitar was the 561 of the year -> is it correct ?

 

Could you give me too a little description of parts of this guitar like pickup model, Tuner key type, caps & pots type ?

 

2) Furrow

 

Salesman tell me that there is no scratches & diggs but there is a light "furrow" between the 2 parts of top :

Is it "normal" or a "cosmetic trouble" ?

 

Thank's for your help,

 

Taya

yes, it is an authentic R7 from august 2002. it would have Gibson pots and caps, '57 Classic pickups, and green key vintage-style tuners. the "furrow" is probably just the center seam of the maple top showing...no worries there.

Dear Mr YOSHIDA San,

 

Thank's a lot for your comments, they are very usefull. I've just receveid the guitar and it's just a "Dream"o:)

 

But could you explain me what is a "non wired ABR1 bridge" please :-k

 

The only thing I think that I will change is to replace originals pickups by SD Alnico II who are on my Epiphone.

 

Sorry, I'm "just" French but I often work for "Henkel Cemedine" at Tokyo so maybe have we professional meeting?

 

Regards

 

Taya
