    Mike,

    We may want to consider making these "stickies" in the Vintage Les Paul area. Such a wealth of information.

    Thanks Rick!

    Great that this info is again available - thanks much to Rick and Mike.

    For the Kluson page two additional variants can be added - double line, single ring (1965-1969) w the Kluson stamp ('version 7A'), and the same but with a Gibson stamp (1969-1974, 'version 8A').

    These variants were used (maybe exclusively, I dunno) for ES-345 guitars, which never went to the double ring Klusons - for some strange reason.

    The info and detail are exceptionally good! I have used these before when confirming correct era components.

    I have a set of Grover's on my LP Special(a `59) that have "Gibson" stamped on them instead of Grover. They were NOS and in the original Gibson/Grover Rotomatic box from 1959
