Introduction

The Model 1993 arrived to England (Rose, Morris) in the summer of 1964. This doublebound twelve string had no Deluxe features such as triangular inlays or Ric-O-Sound stereo ouputs. It was a more like a double-bound model 330/12 with an F soundhole. In the Electro String factory numbering scheme the export twelve string was a Model 330S/12. A number of these were sold in USA and Canada. Both the 330S/12 and the Model 1993 can be viewed in my Models library. 

Richard R Smith writes in his book that there were 25 Models 1993 shipped to Rose, Morris in 1964 and 75 in 1965. Are these figures correct? I created this section in order to find out if they are. Personally I believe those figures may be slightly higher. I am most grateful for all the assistance and help I can possibly get from you in my search.

NOTE! The information written under each photo is:
 1) Serial#, 2) Date of shipping to Rose, Morris

 **This jackplate belongs to an April, 1963 Model 625. I don't know the correct serial number for this guitar!
