The two models were available in different colors:

The catalogs also say the 60 was available with a Floyd Rose bridge.

That's all I know.

Not sure if the 70 had piezos, but mainly wood and finish afik, like syber mentioned.

PDF 70's don't have a piezo, technically any later model PDF's ending in "5" has piezo's.
Early PDF models usually didn't have piezo's.
I have a tangerine PDF 70 that's been modded with coil taps and piezo's and had the serial number painted out so I can't accurately date but I know it's an early model from the cavity electrics.
Bought my PDF 105 in 2013 it sold as a 105 not 100.

good info, thanks...  I doubt I'll ever remember that, hard as I try!  I'm a visual guy, I could draw all the buildings on a street but forget the street name.  lol 

So I didn't remember the designations exactly but do recall seeing a pdf with piezos, might have been a custom or a diy mod- probably yours! 

I figured it was easy enough to do if you get the saddles and pcb, and some of the pdf blems were really inexpensive not too long ago.
