Model 330 in Midnite Blue. You can date it with the serial number decoded under the "Service" tab above.

So there are 330 models that have the dual outputs? I have done the decoder to see that it is a 1985, im just confused as to why it has the 360 neck and outputs

You're right- I guess I wasn't paying attention. It's a 360 WB.

There a Maple one shown here:

Black hardware and trim was standard with the Midnite Blue.

Well, it serves me right for posting while speaking on the phone at the same time.

Lol! Now that is customer involvement! Now if I could only get the CEO of Fender to explain why the amp I just bought has a defective speaker baffle I'd be ok :lol: thanks again John!

I think the CEO of Fender is running a slightly larger operation. I don't think you'll ever see Rickenbacker shoes or wine.
