Silhouette Special can't find serial in database / strange tuners with screw on top
The number 97009 is stamped on the plate where the neck connects to the body.
The model is printed on the head as “Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette Special”.
On the back of the head is printed “Made in St Luis Obispo California, USA”.
I’ve checked in this database but it explains that serials that don’t start with a letter are not in the database.
Does this mean the guitar is pre-1990s…
