Post by makoman1860 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 4:06 am

Ok so I caught an auction at the last second, and I thought I bid on a Novak T1, but Im thinking I was wrong on that. What model is this?

I think it's later than 2nd gen. I don't know exactly how many versions there were but so far I've seen four:

1st: 3 pot, 3 wire
2nd: 2 pot, 3 wire, # on a dot sticker (I've got a 1 and 4 like this)
3rd: 2 pot, 4 wire, dot sticker (Asso_Man's got one on his Tecnacraft/Edinger)
4th: 2 pot, 4 wire, # is part of the label.

Addendum: 1st & 2nd gen the cases are taped together. 4th the case is held together with screws. Not sure about 3rd.

Great info 8)
I should not have generalized like I did, I was only concentrating on 3 wire vs 4.

So what year are we thinking here, '83? '84? When I was foolishly thinking it was a T1 I had one project in mind, but I am wondering if this would be early enough to be appropriate for my jomac lightning?
