    I'm looking to add a 1985 to the herd and the guitar I'm looking at has '7' and '8' stamped on the pickups instead of 'T' and 'B'. The owner believes these are the original pickups and all electrics look unmolested. He suggested that at times the 'T' and 'B' wore down on the stamping machine and they used '7' and '8' instead. Anyone else came across this?

    7/8 pups were seen in the very early 85’s.

    I felt a pithy retort coming on, but it passed. Must have been indigestion.

    Yeah, but I don't think it's real.

    You’re thinking of The Agents of Orange, which was with Shawn.

    Hansoserg was the short lived production company we started that put on our Miami Vice inspired puppet shows.

    Not really. It wasn't all it's cracked up to be. It mostly consisted of Sergio doing Jan Hammer noises into an ET Big Gulp cup (for ambience) while Hans worked a stained Ernie puppet with a pasted-on mustache while just repeating "Crockett! Tubbs! My office!" in a hoarse voice.

    See, I'd pay money for that. Not good money, but money.

    Duh! How could I forget?

    Didn’t Beaker portray Don Johnson?

    Yeah, which was confusing when we got to the wedding sequence, since we also used Beaker to play Sheena Easton’s character.
