New to the Forum – Silhouette Special Question
I had a quick question about the Silo Special. I see they were changing around the hardware a bit in the mid 90s, and as near as I can tell from the pictures, this one has a six point vibrato bridge but has Schaller locking tuners. From reading here, it seems they should be Grovers, but looking at the pics of the guitar, they definitely seem to be Schallers. The odd thing is that if these weren’t factory, I would expect there to be so screw holes left from the Grover pattern, yet I don’t see any. Is it possible that some were coming out of the factory in late 96 that still had the Wilkinson bridge but already had Schaller tuners? The serial checks out as the right model, year, and color, so I have no reason to believe anything nefarious is going down as far as how the seller is representing the guitar. But it does seem a bit out of the ordinary.
