4 months ago, I negotiated and met half way for this VP-710 guitar. The guitar has a few nics that will need drop filling, and its missing all 4 original knobs but I did not have this model... have the bass version so this makes it complete !

Having a hard time finding out if a 700 or 710 ... :-?

Seems after going over the guitar completely, came to the conclusion this is not a VP-710. Its the 700VP ! the 700VP comes with unmarked pups that look like SD pups and when the name is on the TRC the VP comes after the model number. 710 models all have one MMK53 and a MMK61 pup in them. very hard to mistake them to another model... :-? :-? :-?

I`m soooo confused ... :toopid:

Pierre I have a VP710 and the pickups are as you said, MMK53/MMK61.
The finish is also the lighter "Harvest" Ash colour instead of the darker brown.

I think it was Mozart who differentiated between the 700 and 710 models, and he put my build date circa 1981 (serial #71447). No idea why the 700 wouldn't have the same pups. :dunno:

After looking at my files, I do have a 710 !

But it sz so directly on the TRC. Has the MMK53/MMK61 pups in it.

Geez, you need a filing cabinet to keep track of your herd? :blink:

Is there still room for the family in the new house or are they forced to live in the garage?
