Think Swinging Doors-If you want to rake or dig in like Moon, you lose something raising 1 to G. A PorK with 6+/3- gets you dirty percussive 7/dim colors on adjacent strings. .

It's a '74 or newer instrument. I saw that color the most in 71-74 so I' imagine it's a '74. Finding parts is not as much of an issue as packing and shipping it to and from a mechanic and labor cos ...
