Default Hi! Acrolite experts needed!

Hi, I bought this Acro several years ago and I have doubts about what year it is and if the hoops are original, it really sounds great and I hope it is not a fake one.

Thanks!

Calmate hermano... it looks 100% legit right down to the tension rods. It's a pointy badge (B/G badge) with the black-face strainer which puts manufacture in the early to mid 70's. By the serial number I'd guess around 76' or so.

Play and enjoy your baby... it's the real deal.

to the forum! Que clase de musica tocas?

Hey Pablo, I'm not an acro expert, but if you want to upload pics try this:

Click on 'Go Advanced', 'Manage Attachments', 'Choose File', then click on the photo you want and click on 'Upload'.

I think once again the gal we came to the dance with went home with somebody else!

These one-time posters come in, ask a question, we answer it and then we end up talking to each other. Happens every time. We all need to check our deodorant, or change our underwear more than once a week. We're running off the newbies.
