    Viddy is likely from 2010, Chip states he's had it for 34 years. That suggests '76, but that headstock logo ain't from '76. Not sure what to make of it. Looks early 80s; possibly MIJ?

    The logo can't be any older than 1983.

    Could it be MIJ or MIM? I don't think they started MIJ until early 80s.

    Looks like a mid 1980's MIJ model.

    thanks, like this one? Are these good? I played a Jazz MIJ a while back that was excellent.
