Can anyone tell me definatively if the late 80s to early 90s Pinnacle 3862 was a bolt-on neck, or glued in?

Thanks

Glue in. At least the MIJ Pinnacles are. Pretty sure the rest are the same. Here's a pic of a repair done in Japan (not by me).

Pinnacle neck reset

Some folks say the MIJ Pinnacles matched the "build" (okay, don't go ballistic on me guys, I did not say "sound") qualities of their U.S. made counterparts. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the pic! That’s what I needed to know. I’ve always been a bit leery of Ovations with glued-in necks.

In my album are a few fotos from inside my 3862. The neck joint on my guitar is fine.

BTW I don't think the 3862 has the Kaman bar neck system - if that matters. Besides the rumour goes that a few were made in Germany.
