Whatsapp When my boyfriend took a job helping a widow clean out her house, among the urine-soaked rugs and years-old piles of laundry, I saw our relationship in a new light. Thick dust coated everything. Her shirt was buttoned to the neck, and she slid the house slippers from her feet the instant she sat down, pulling her legs up under her. He hated wearing dress shirts and slacks and ties. He hated selling and managing and sitting in an overly air-conditioned office. So when he moved to North Carolina he wanted a different life. This was exactly what he was looking for. When we fought no one yelled. Instead we talked and worked to put us back together.
Just like many other companies in the late s, Fender decided to start manufacturing products in Korea. As with any new product line, Fender came up with a new numbering system for these guitars. You would think after nearly 40 years of producing guitars, Fender would have a standardized serial number system down by now, right? The Korean Fender serial numbers are just as scattered and confusing as all the rest of their guitars.
Let’s take a look at the different serial numbers and see what they mean. Fender admits that there is little to no information about the serial numbers from

I promise the tables will still be there after you finish reading. We also received a report of a tweed 5G12 Concert. The 5G12 Concert is the earliest version from very late and early so the existence of a tweed example, while extremely rare, is certainly plausible since Fender was making lots of tweed amps during the same time period. Working at FMI — I was able to interview a fellow who wishes to remain anonymous who worked at Fender in in the amp department.
Although his job was somewhat limited, his recollections provided some really fascinating insights to how the amps were built. For instance, he confirmed our assumption that the amp chassis were put into stock after being stamped with serial numbers and that the chassis were pulled from the stock bins randomly just as with Fender guitar neck plates. The boss came around and said what we’d be building.
There has never been full agreement about the case numbers on early Rolex Oysters. However; help is at hand due to the fact that most of the early Rolex Oysters were sold in the UK they bear British hallmarks because it was a legal prerequisite for all precious metal items sold in Britain to be hallmarked by a government department. Hallmarking began in Britain around the late 12th Century eight hundred years ago making the hallmarking regulations most certainly the oldest piece of consumer legislation still in effect.
Using the date letter, which gives us the year in which the watch was sent to the assay office because the watches could not be sold without a hallmark, the empty cases were sent for hallmarking and then returned to Switzerland to have the movements fitted and then returned to the UK for sale; so the hallmark date would be close to the date at which the completed watches would leave the factory.
In , Patek had occasion to meet a young French watchmaker, Adrien Philippe, who was the inventor of the keyless winding mechanism. When Czapek left the company in , Patek hired Philippe as his new head watchmaker, and by the company was producing the first Philippe-designed movements.

So while staring at my navel the other day, I decided that that bitch happens in four stages. Mimicry We are born helpless. First we learn to do physical skills like walk and talk. Then we develop social skills by watching and mimicking our peers around us. Then, finally, in late childhood, we learn to adapt to our culture by observing the rules and norms around us and trying to behave in such a way that is generally considered acceptable by society.
The goal of Stage One is to teach us how to function within society so that we can be autonomous, self-sufficient adults. The idea is that the adults in the community around us help us to reach this point through supporting our ability to make decisions and take action ourselves.
Factory records differ from year-to-year and factory-to-factory. Some records are more complete than others. For this reason, many factory production dates are approximate.

Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian. Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date.
Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going. If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart. That is why I advise our boys to read stories and watch movies more and to learn more beautiful phrases to tell girls. The Internet is shaping the way new generations date.
But, with more than 75 years of shipping records in the Gibson books, and dozens of variations on numerical schemes used over the years, serial numbers sometimes do little to shed light on the origin of a mysterious Gibson. With vintage Gibsons selling at auction for as much as half a million dollars, Davidson will sometimes roll up his sleeves and poke around in the ledgers, but only as time allows.
The earliest volumes contain hundreds of yellowed pages covered front and back with rows of handwritten numbers. It can take Davidson several hours to locate a specific serial number, if he can find it at all. Even then, there may be four other guitars—of all different models—with the same number sequence.
All of our guitars have a serial number on the back of the headstock (or the neck plate on older guitars). The serial number represents the date and time your guitar was built, in a specific format. Please enter the full serial number, with dashes.
Buttplate 74 During the last year of production China began to use a letter prefix and 4 digit number. The numbering of secondary parts is typical and includes the bolt, floorplate, and buttplate. Because of the use of different sizes and fonts of stamps used by Finland and importers it is difficult to be certain if a Finnish receiver number is original or not. As with all Mosin Nagants, if it is a dot matrix type stamp it is not original. This is not considered detrimental by most Finnish Mosin Nagant collectors.
Finland did not produce bolt bodies and all of theirs are from purchased or captured rifles. Old serial numbers are often lined out and new ones stamped beside them, often with only the last four digits. In some cases several old numbers are present. This is common on Finnish rifles.
Arguments for and against[ edit ] Common arguments for consistent use of the serial comma: Use of the comma is consistent with conventional practice. Use of the comma is inconsistent with conventional practice. It is redundant in a simple list because the and or the or is often meant to serve by itself to mark the logical separation between the final two items,  unless the final two items are not truly separate items but are two parts of a compound single item.
Where space is at a premium, the comma adds unnecessary bulk to the text. Many sources are against both systematic use and systematic avoidance of the serial comma, making recommendations in a more nuanced way see Usage and subsequent sections.
Along with dating amps by serial numbers, we were interested in determining production totals, if possible. There is some debate about how to interpret the production code information on late ‘50s to mid tube charts and Greg Huntington is still working with those.
