Thread: Incoming!!!!

    Incoming!!!!

    1971 F-312. Pulled the trigger at 4:15 this morning. No time yet to really explore history of model but what little I saw was pretty encouraging. Are these still Hoboken? I have a maple 12 and an old Japanese hog 12 but have always wanted a r/w model 12.

    The small -er body seem appealing to my aching joints.


    Spoke w/store Mgr and due to Thanksgiving coming up he is going to try and ship it out today to be here early next week. He texted pix. Anyone want to post for me?

    Congratulations!....1971....a great year and the year of my birth :) I hope the F-312 arrives and is even better than you'd expected. I believe 1971 is Westerly as they began production in 1967 per my recollection.

    Serial Number 68122. Looks like a 72 not a 71.

    Oh...this is no longer my birth year guitar....this changes things :)

    and....4:15 in the morning? This is a dangerous time when you have a credit card, GAS, and an internet connection.
