'51s: pls educate on identifying OPB51s vs. later version
I would really appreciate getting educated on this topic, and I thank anyone who replies in advance.
How does one know when they are looking at the OPB51 '51 reissue bass versus the less expensive version?
One specific question I have is: is the OPB51 (the more expensive version) actually marked somewhere as an OPB51? Is there any identifying markings/codes etc. that distinguishes one version from another?
I know, more generally, that the colors are different and that the tuning pegs are different. The problem is, I have never seen either bass, much less the two together to contrast and compare.
Thanks guys and gals.
