    If you read further down the link you included in your posting, you will see the owner's comment about the model designation on the label of his Starfire.

    That sputtering noise you heard was my brain farting, thanks!
    I knew something didn't sound quite right but stopped reading after that first post and figured it was just me....

    Therein lies the source of the problem. Do I adjust the timing so the AI has more time to read or increase the buffer so the AI remember what has been read or is there something else going on?

    I had a 1960 SF III that was kind of plum in colour; I don't know if it was just an early iteration of cherry but it was a very different colour to my '66.

    Since the OP asked about 60's Starfires without specifiying which model, but looking at his Avatar here's some input about the Starfire II/III:

    On this picture (Source: LTG member mbrindell) you see the 4 available colors in 1962/1963 models: Emerald Green, Cherry Red, Honey Amber (Amberstar) and Ebony Grain:

    Here's a 1964 white Starfire III. It was almost certainly a "Special" order.

    Ralf... that's a great photo that you dug up from the LTG archives with the 4 available colors in 1962/1963! Thanks for posting.

    What color is written on the label? I guess only Hans would know. Is it an all maple body?
