    Just picked this axe up. Taken it apart to look under the hood etc.

    What's the number mean on the back of the neck (2.) before the EX T?

    After taking out the set screws on the volume and tone controls, the knobs don't want to come off. Frozen? Something I don't know about with these basses?

    4 ply tort pickguard. Any one see one of those before?

    Thanks for the answers/info.

    Go to:http://www.21frets.com/squier_jv/jv_quick_guide.htm

    Lot of info about them, they are quite good too!
    The older the better tho.. What does the headstock say just precision bass made in Japan or does it also say squier? Quite collectable in Europe I must say people charge some big bucks for them... But then these mostly where exporten to England in the early 80s only other market was Japan in the US there isn't much market fir them I have the feeling, but they are really really good most of the time so...

    Brams....Yeah, I checked out the guys at 21 frets. I figure the 2 is the second month of the year, as the neck is dated at the end of January. Here's the pic of the headstock for 'ya.

    They were shipped to Canada and Europe as well, just not 'Merica. After setting it up (the truss rod had never been touched), this thing is your basic big block tone monster.
