I often wondered why they call the 4001V63 a 63.

You don't really see any pre-'64 4001S's.

Did Ric base the model on a '63 in their museum?

According to the Smith book, there were two 4001S's made in '61.

We all know the Smith numbers are incomplete.

Even so, I would imagine that no more than a handfull were made before '64.

An actual 4001S from '63 is extremely rare,but the reissue was based on what the original would have been from that year.I believe the only difference was the truss rod system that allowed round wounds instead of flats.

Sorry for digging out,this old thread.
But I also have a question .

I always asked me why a V63 have no 3rd cap .

Is it right,that ALL 4001 had the 3rd cap ( including RM1999 and 4001S )?
If YES,so why do the V63 have none ?

This question has been bothering me for some time.
Anyone can say something more about that ?
