Thunder 1-A Bass 1985 version 2 pickups

Post by Beatalls_Macca on Fri Sep 25, 2015 7:14 am

Hi all, really pleased to see a site exists for these wonderful instruments - and a nice site it is too. I own a black 1-A Bass (1985 version 2) and have been researching it's detailed specs. I can't make out if the pickups are model F675's or F-600B's as information out there seems to be conflicting. What I do know is that it has 2 split coil magnet 'Hard Puncher 1' each with 4 hex key adjustable pole pieces and cross head height adjustment screws - mostly taken from info on this website. Can anyone provide a definitive answer to the pickup model numbers and specs?

Also, any ideas what the dotted fret marker material is? 

Finally, I struggle with the brass bridge and saddles, it was badly tarnished so was heavily cleaned with a wire brush; it polished up lovely for a while but now spots up badly and has to be polished regularly, is there a way to protect them?
Thanks...

A couple coats of clear lacquer  after polishing will sort your brass out,  not sure about the pickups.

Was the brass originally lacquered then? Including the Pot knobs?
