I dated it to this range of years, serial number starts with an E and has 6 digits. Maple neck and fret board, some wear on the edges of the fret board, the finish is wearing thin. I can't fell it while playing the bass. On that note, the bass looks good from the front, a few shallow marks on the front. Around the sides are some more knicks and a few knicks on the back of the horns. Electronics are great, no scratchy pots, hardware is great. This bass plays and sounds sweet. I will take $450 plus shipping, shipping can be cheap if you allow me to take the neck off. These are crappy cell pics, I may be able to borrow my girlfriends camera and get better pics. My phone doesn't have a flash even so some funny lighting on some of these pics.
