Hi folks - I wonder if anyone can help? I'm the proud owner of what I thought was a 360/12 in fireglo but the code on the jack socket shows 369/12 and 03 which presumably indicates the year of manufacture. I've not heard of a 369 model - how does it differ from the 360 and what would be the relative value in comparison?
Many Thanks
Martyn

No such model. Also, we don't print the model on the product, at least not in many years. The jack plate only has a serial number in YYWW#### format, where the YY is the year, and the WW is the week it was made it, followed by a unique number.

hi,
that IS a model 360-12 in Fireglow finish.

what you are referring to is the serial number on the jack plate. (36912)

looks to be just an incredible coincidence.

OK Cool - Thanks for your help everybody. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then its a duck, right? If you want to hear this guitar in action its featured on a song called 'Spacedust' which you can access via this link

it was recorded in Liverpool a couple of years back - I hope you enjoy it

yes, very nice use of the different sounds of the 360-12, curiously it almost sounds like a 370-12 when using all 3 pickups at once.

Very interesting about the 360/12 sounding like the 3 pick up version - it must be down to some kind of studio trickery! Thanks for your kind comments
