Welcome, Tom. That's great that you still have your original '67 4005. Thanks for posting a pic.

IMO you need a black switchtip on that 4005 to be vintage spec. Or did it come with the white one?

Did you install a larger plate under the bridge to move it back fot intonation sake or is this standard?

The 4005 is as I bought it in '67, no mods, although I'm not sure about the white versus black toggle switch tip.

I sold mine last August for what I thought was a very reasonable price.

I thought I did, but can't find it, at the moment! :shock: :lol: I still need to own a 4000 and a 4002 to have complete the basic set (4000-4001-4002-4003-4004-4005) , disregarding the 4008, for example. :mrgreen:

Yes, it is great to see so many now Brian! Onward to 100. :)

Erm, wouldn't the 4008 be the rarest?
