I just recently picked up an used R.Q. Jones. I've always wanted one since i first met Josh in the early 80's. The store i bought it from said they thought it was a 1978. I'm having some set-up work being done right now on it (whoever had it before had the cone glued & nailed in, also the bridges were bad). The guy reparing it says every piece of wood in that guitar is mahogany(even the baffles & post). Everything i've read says Jones only used walnut until 1980. If that is true it can't be a 1978. The serial number is 4678. I've e-mailed R.Q. Jones & haven't heard anything back yet. I was wondering if anyone here has a Jones with a serial number close to this one or knows anything about Jones serial numbers. Thanks
