Hey,

a friend of mine has a fernandes LP, we don't know anything about it, the previous owner thought it's an 80's one, but not sure.
How can we date this one? Pots? pick up cavities? anyone know what type it is, or what's the value of this one? It's a player, not a collector, quite some wear on the back.

Here some pics.

Since I'm not well up in the matter of Fernandes', any info would be welcome!

It's late 1991 or younger.
Pics of the pots and pickup cavities will reveal more of it's age.
