Nice one! Congrats. :) But those are Twinblade humbuckers, not AP11s which are actually single coils. ;)

SUPER cool guitar, and I had no idea they still were stamping SN#'s into fretboards. I thought that was a relic of the 70's when it was stamped onto the Hofner necks and thereafter it was all on the jackplate. I was wrong!

Nice choice w mahog, especially since you went with full on humbuckers over the whole thing. It's almost like a Les Paul Long Scale in disguise...

Can't stamp it on the jack plate when there isn't a jack plate. :) They have done this on models that had the barrel-style jacks, as well.

Huh....I've always called that a jack ferrule. https://www.musiciansfriend.com/accesso ... ctads-adid^221925979422-device^c-plaid^323968377343-sku^361399000000000@ADL4MF-adType^PLA

OK, fine...the only type of jack plate they have ever stamped with a serial number, then. :roll: :lol:

I missed that episode of JackPlate Rock on ABC Saturday mornings!

But I can still dance along!

Bolts are among my favorite guitars. I love the contoured neck/body joint. Very nice!
