Is it possible to date this serial: T/ 10333
Is there another letter before or after the 10333?Is it possible to date this serial: T/ 10333
^ not sure what that means lol. At this point I really have no idea what condition it is in. I did expect it to be 68-69. I think it has metal panel but the owner doesnt know much about it. I may be able to get it cheap if the repairs are significant. I have been looking for a project like this so might be up my alley. I am not too familiar with the tremolo but I like what I hear on youtube clips.
My understanding was that T/ stood for trem model, which is what OP has?Typically, 'T/A' prefix is '69 and 'T/' prefix is '67-'68.

Cool! ThxWhat @TAZIN said is correct.
Both "T/" (what the OP has) and "T/A" refer to tremolo models. "T/" came first, and appeared in '67/'68. Then "T/A" started appearing around the start of '69 (not sure when the exact cutoffs were - the alignment with years could be loose/coincidental).
Important not to confuse these prefixes with the "A" suffix, which denotes '69-'70 production. These suffixes continued on to "C" ('71), "D" ('72) etc. and are a reliable indicator of year.
