You're welcome, Kev. 

Here's an article quoting Mark Arnquist who was in charge of special repairs at the Rickenbacker factory from July 1972 to October 1976.  He describes the repairs to Paul's 4001S just prior to the Wings Over America Tour:  http://www.thecanteen.com/arnquist.html


wow sounds like it was in a right mess and in need of plenty of TLC

wonder why Paul didnt ask them to seal it while it was in there ?
