Postby moaimen » Sun Jul 12, 2009 9:30 am

Here is a small list of Bluesbender serial numbers that I've owned, seen in person or seen on Ebay. I would be interested to have any additions from anyone. It would seem to indicate that around 200 were made?

Here's some to add:

N0028, N0158 and N0162. Scroll down on this page to see them (I'm not sure if the one is a lefty or not, Could be a reversed photo)

N0031 that Tym Guitars owns. http://www.tymguitars.com.au/my_mosrites_01.htm

N0071 that Michael Marks owns. http://home.insightbb.com/~marksma/wsb/ ... ip-35.html

Oh and I found someone on a forum who owns a Bluesbender. He hasn't posted since august of last year but maybe we can get in touch with him, Invite him to the forum and ask the serial number of his Mo'. I already created account at this forum but it hasn't been activated yet:

I used to own a pearl white one that I believe Michael Marks now owns as well.

101Volts,
That last one is NO 170, which I used to own and never should have gotten rid of. I traded it even for a 1969 plexi Marshall, (which I stupidly sold too). If you get in contact with the guy let me know, I'd love to talk to him. I updated the list on my first post. There seems to be two NO 153, the japanese owner's(or is his really 158) and Tym's "deluxe". I'm also wondering if there are any numbers higher than 195?

Just as an update, My account hasn't been activated at that forum yet. It's been three days... :| I'll go ask people on other forums if they have bluesbenders. Oh and don't forget to add that Tym's #153 Deluxe model is red.

Here is my former Bluesbender. I don't remember the serial number but I believe it was in the 30s or 40s.

This one, which I have owned for about 15 years, has no serial number. I'm not kidding -nothing. No modifications have ever been made. Semie just didn't put a number on it.
