I had two missions on our trip to Scotland: finally meet with a forum buddy I've corresponded with for 15 years or more but never spoken to, and see a Bond Electraglide guitar in the flesh at the National Museum in Edinburgh ( Bond Electraglide guitar ). After searching for 10 minutes, a guide came back with the discouraging news that it was in their collection but no longer on display. I might be able to speak with the curator, but the collection was some 5 miles away in the storage/prep facility. And we're leaving bright and early tomorrow morning. But I'll get contact info for the curator of that collection and see if I can get more info. I had corresponded briefly with the designer's son (the designer being dead some years back), but he had little technical info to pass on.
