I've been listening a lot to 79 and 80 boards; are you aware if there were any other circuit changes to the later Tiger when they went to the Super IIs, or was it just a straight pickup swap?
It's always sounded to me like 79-81 he was playing both coils more, it's just that much fatter, but not sure if it would have been in the bridge or middle position.

Which would seem to imply that 2 different circuits were used in the 2 guitars... and that Tiger may have had 2 (or more) variants of the UGB over the years.

I believe he only used that with JGB on the legendary Winter 80 tour, and possibly during the previous summer '79 reconstruction shows.
By the way, I will tell this story in More detail another time, but I own a Mark 2a that is from Nov. 1978 which puts it as one of the very first Mark 2's and when I went to verify ownership information with Mesa by serial I had a tech tell me that it was previously registered to "GDP(Grateful Dead Productions)", so I started to wonder if I actually had THE AMP! it turns out that I probably don't, but there is some more intrigue there that I am trying to uncover.
