Ok this is actually a question I was thinking about this weekend. The Bob Jackson's on http://www.classicrendezvous.com/British/BobJack_home.htm sure look like Hetchins' to me, but I'm no expert. I saw another Super Legend on a different page this weekend (can't remember the URL or the name of the page now) that had real Hetchins Magnum Opus lugs. I can't imagine Hetchins allowing one of its contract builders to use their proprietary lugs. Did Jackson have some kind of deal with Hetchins? thanks, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives SB, CA
