Eric, this guitar would have been built in Phoenix under the Brumley.Simms era. I don't have any records past December of 68' but my guess is 75' or 76'. Looks like a real sweetheart!!!

If the guitar was 0011 it would be a 69' built in Bakersfield. 1011 would be a 65'. That number kinda throws me off a bit. There were a few odd numbers built though. Lets see a picture!!!

The guitar was delivered in 1966 in July, not 68. I think that may be a typo on Gruhn's part. The Carnegie Hall guitar was Brown aprons and blonde tops. You can see it in some of the early ranch sh ...
