David
Welcome to the club. That seems to be a 1976 serial number, possibly built in November of '76. Please, post pics before everyone starts banging beer bottles. You will come to understand about that, I'm sure

Hi David,

Here's that the file says:

top: Walnut
body: Mahogany
back: Walnut
neck: Maple, Purpleheart and Beech
scale: 30.75" short
fingerboard: Padouk (Vermilion)
inlays: mother of pearl
originally made for: Rothchild Musical Instruments
birthday: November 10, 1976

Sent in for repair in 1981. We made a new string nut for it, set it up, and repaired the customer's F-2B at the same time.
