Strange number on the fretboard of a 66 Viking
Sir, A few weeks back I posted about a 66 Viking I came across and am purchasing. Several folks were kind enough to point me to additional info to fill me in on the guitar I had found & thanks to them all.
However, after my 1st posting I came across a weird number on the fretboard just above neck supertron & thought if I posted with a new thread in the Vintage section it would grab more folks with possible knowledge but I have had no luck so far. So here I am...
The number reads : T.#3-103-5
The last number could be a 3 or a 5 or perhaps the letter E, sadly it is very faint and hard to read. Can you possibly help me with what this might be?
I don't seem to find anything in Jay Scott's or Tony Bacon's books & I really am at a loss on this & it's not like I can go to the nearest GC and find another vintage Gretsch to look at..so if you might be able to shed some light on this I would be quite pleased. If this is as odd to you as it seems to everyone else, thank you for at least taking the time to consider my question.
