Hi all,

I copied Corsairs cataloque (thank you Corsair) but did not like the disposition of having the info on the following page. So... I made some changes and Corsair also agreed that I should share them.

For anyone who might want these.

Solid. THanks for the spec sheets!

Had a question though-- what year are these from and were nay of the models subsequently refined? For example, these list the VS600B and VS696B as having 34" and 32.5" scales respectively. I own one VS600B and two VS695B's and the scales are exactly the opposite. My VS600B with the radiused 3 point bridge has a 32" scale and the 695's are full scale.

I'd be curious to know if anyone has any further info on this. Thanks.

MM

All I can tell you is that I got the cat from the shop i bought my VA900 in, in Melbourne Australia in 1980....

I will go on a limb and say this is a 1980 Cat since all VA900 so far are from 1980, that also includes the VA900B....

Yeah. Far too long. I'm almost embarrassed about allowing the site to become stagnant. I intend to change that straight away! Actually it is already under way.
