no, if we had been able to poke around inside we most likely would have figured out how rosebud was chambered though. i have heard of the "hidden compartment" in tiger, but know for a fact it's not there. the hidden compartment rumor, imo, was started because when irwin shipped tiger, nothing was under the tiger plate. john cutler then installed the preamp and battery under there once jerry received it. so there was sort of a hidden compartment made by irwin, but it became utilized. i had the curator of tiger pull the pickup ring off and look for it under there, (as the rumor for those that don't know goes), the big oval on the back was removable by screws under the pickups. the screws are there, but they don't release that oval. he even removed the screws to no avail.
