I've been looking at two Model T's, everything else looks the same except for this difference.

Are these diff. year models, or what?

I read that the proper Sunn Model T had a red logo and red tips on the knobs. Fenders have the white logo and tips. You might wanna wait to see if someone else replys but I think I'm correct.

Yeah, these were both original Sunn Model Ts, not the Fender.  While the FMIC Model Ts do, in fact, have the white/silver faces, so do the ORIGINAL-original Ts, referred to as first generation Model Ts.  The red faces came out a few years later (hence, second generation) and featured a mid-range selector switch on the front. I missed seeing this in the pictures.  I hear that most guitar players favor the first gens, and the 2nd gens are more suited for bass.  I bet they're both killer in their own ways.

I've since bought the first gen. white face Model T and am supposed to get it via UPS on Mar. 6th!!!!

I would take a 1st or 2nd... But I've emailed all over here in the UK and no one seems so have any at all.  :cry:  I'm gonna get one though. How much did you pay?

The first Model T's came out in the early 70's and had a black face w/ silver stripe.  Then a mid switch was added.  Then I believe Sunn was sold and the next model had the red logo/knobs.  There is a difference in the tone between models w/o the mid switch and the ones with.  The early ones w/o the mid switch are the ones that have sound that most people (that I know of) want.  There is a web site showing how to mod the one with the mid switch to make it sound better.

I knew I'd get busted on that one, but it was late.  Just did a google search and didn't find it.  I may have copied it.  Will check in the next few days and if so, I'll email it to you.  Might also search this site, as this is where I found it.
