Metal guitarists really have strikingly different taste than classic rock / blues guys, don't they?  Ebony/maple neck plus active EMGs ... I bet that thing is incredibly bright.

Yep, just those years with the decal serial number got the name,  same case for the grabbers and TBs although I've seen Grabbers from that era that got stamped serials for some reason..those may well have been seconds. 

My Hobbit is a 78

Anyone knows where to get the knobs for the new Embassy? The look just like the vintage ones, and I want to get a set of them.

So far, they seem to be impossible to get.  I bought a Wilshire reissue guitar just for the knobs.  I put reflector knobs on it and resold it for just a hair more than I paid, so I guess I did OK.

Huh, didn't know that.  I do see a 1980 Triumph on ebay now, but it's a second so maybe they never [put a decal on for that reason.  I guess that explains the confusion over that model's name - half of them don't say Triumph anywhere on the thing (TRC says Les Paul Bass).
