    It's the color of your guitar but since it's 100 years old the R and D faded. Sometimes you'll see BLO which is evidence of a BLONDE guitar but after 200 years the NDE fall off.

    JK. It's probably someone's name at FEND.

    He was the Tadeo Gomez of the late 80s.

    Youve seriously never heard of him?

    So i just got a '97 Am Std as well, and it weighs between 8-9 lbs and to me is a total anchor. Trying to sell as we speak lol

    The '89 here is about the same weight but is much more balanced and feels great.

    I've also owned a '93 that was a wee bit lighter and also had great balance like the '89.

    I'm not sure I get it, not very knowledgeable on Jefferson Airplane but I'll take your word for it!

    I used to think I knew a lot about the history of Fender but I guess I really don’t...

    I also want to add my guitar guy doesn't think neck pickup is Fender based on wiring. I wouldn't know what to look for. Here's a couple pics.
