i need help dating my jem blue floral bfp!

hey all, i bought a jem blue floral a while back. the woman selling it said it was a '91, but i'm not certain, i think it's a '93 based on the serial# info i found all over the 'net. also, the owners manual has a 1993 print date, but im not sure if that's original either. if anyone could help, the serial # is 253569. thanks :-)

A 92 would have a 92 plate.

These are late batch guitars, 93' or 94'. Which there is no way to ever tell. The very last batches had the solid blue knobs, not the painted white base knobs.

Rich,

I also have one of these, #253236, and you are correct in that it has the solid knobs - which certainly did not fade at the same rate as the pickup covers which have faded into an almost aqua green - along with the rest of the floral design.

I am not dissapointed in the color, and actually think it looks stellar and warm.

My question to you Rich, is do you know what pup selector knob should have shipped with my 93' or 94' bfp?

The one that is currently on the guitar is a light - almost baby blue, that does not match the knobs or the pups? Any chance this thing was original or should I be seeking a darker blue tip that matches the knobs?

You have always been a genuine resource in odd little questions like this, and figured you would know what originally came on these guitars.

I don't doubt if the factory ran out they'd put anything blue on for a tip, but it should have a solid color tip to match the knobs. Those I do have in stock.

The infamous roofie colada,

For when she doesn't know that she really wants to,

...and won't be able to remeber that she did.
