Hi Treehousecollections, if you go the history tab, literature archives, years 55, 56 and 57 do you see a guitar that is the same as yours or similar. Wow it may be one of the earliest combos, there are 400, 800, 850 and some others, but have a look and compare the photos to your guitar.

Very cool axe....................What does it sound like????

Oh, I just noticed when you made the initial post 2010

OK, you must know what model it is by now! You have an old guitar and your sense of humour is a bit cracked up too! :lol: :lol:

Hi I come in here from time to time and one answer is the pictures of her broke down into pieces :
http://s993.photobucket.com/albums/af54 ... 1956-2010/

The 850 shown is not mine just there for comparison.
The plate does not help much , but a man named Tony Blair, probably helped me more than anybody. He had a great collection and his 850 was beautiful. I think he might have kept it for sure. I don't know about the rest.
I found out that the pots dated in later 1957 so it was made after that date, depending on how many pots were on hand. Every thing on it is authentic, so it was determined by experts that, first no one would have even been able to get all of them at that time. If they somehow did they would have bought more and copied a model everyone wanted then. The price for a guitar like it at the time would have not been much, as the 850 was around all the way into the early sixties, brand new. It had two pickups. I have been told that model numbers in the fifties and early sixties were not very consistent and someone either made a custom with a handstamped jackplate or it was made of parts that went on other guitars earlier and later. Several guys believe that by the numbers there were possibly 147 made. I really doubt that, because they would have shown up by now. Consistently it came back as made in 57-58-59. Some of the later 850's had two toasters on them and a trapeze tailpiece like mine. Most likely mine was made between the 850 and the 325, as the same parts as minr was used on both. Mine had the headstock shape of the 325 instead of the 850. With the number being C6147 I have gotten different answers. A combo made in 56 with 147 made. A combo 6 147 made. There was one more I can't remember. She is alone currently until another one shows up or someone in the world recognizes her. I will be showing her before too long all in one piece shiny as a mirror. I still haven't bought an amp. I think I might get a Carvin V3 micro- multi wattage. It really sounds good for a small amp. which is all I need. Thanks for looking. sorry for the delay, I will try to do better. For some reason my email didn't notify me of activity on the forum.
