Default Premier Table...

I could not resist this "18" table/project?. I paid only 30 $Au (which is less than a decent bottle of red). Not sure of the year, apart from the odd pair of sticks I have never owned Premier anything till now.

I think 70's, missing bottom rim & 8 tension screws. Shell and edges are good even has tone control intact, Serial # 16458... can anyone help with a model/ year?

Cheers
John

looks like 78 1978-77-75-75..
Wasting away as a table!
Too nice for a table! : )
2 or 3 years after these with the earlier spur and not the big T handle you have on your leg mounts..
https://reverb.com/item/38774554-pre...set-70-s-white
not these ..the top shell within- a shell resonator but same leg bracket
https://reverb.com/item/38708636-pre...re-rock-n-roll
but that table is in good company.
lol

Yes... I needed another table like a hole in the head... I definitely will be it's saviour from a mundane past decade or so... Thanks for the info & links.. First thing will be strip it down & remove the rough coat of dark walnutty varnish covering the internal shell & rings. It actually looks like a Beech shell under that.

Cheers John

mahogany or Birch are your choices ( the rings were beech)

I'd leave it alone

they returned to Birch in 1976.
with those leg brackets 1976 and Birch makes sense.
If it's tone is good leave the insides.

Thanks Joe,
If it had been a decent job agreed... but this is flaking off already so it should come off with a firm nylon brush even,,, (Thumbnail is taking it off but my nail polishis getting wrecked) ,,

Cheers

No Chance.. ,,

(Poor old Fosters.. Rarely see it on the shelves these days... at least in OZ, far too many great designer ales that are still owned by Australian companies).
