Please Help verifying my N4 !
« on: January 02, 2017, 05:38:29 AM »
Hi,

I have a very good N4, plays very well, sounds very good, but lots of strange things : the serial on the body is N° 4856403/4905563, no serial behind the headstock !
It issupposed to be a Davies, from 1991, but some strange things : Washburn Tuners, Floyd Rose vibrato...Pick-ups are Bill Lawrence's and SB's, both sounding incredibly well !

Thanks for your help !

Jérôme

Serial numbers don't help a whole lot......we need pictures.....front and back of the guitar.....headstock front and back.....body front and back.

You have what "appears" to be a Davies-era N4.  The body has most of the characteristics of a Davies N4, but a previous owner has swapped out the Kahler tremolo for a Floyd Rose.  You can see that the body routing matches a Kahler, rather than a Floyd.  I'm curious about the lack of a serial number on the back of the head stock.  If you're comfortably doing so, you may want to take the neck off.  Most of the N4s I have seen have a number written on the body and neck, sometimes matching the serial (if it's a Davies).

Nice guitar, nonetheless!  :D

No serial on the headstock, a Floyd Rose and and a BL USA with the white lettering makes me think it's not a true, complete Davies.  Perhaps the guitar has been through hell and had the neck, BL and trem replaced?
