    If it's on the neckplate, then F is for the month; F = 6th month, so it's June, but I thought the year was the 1st 2 digits following, and it can't be a '71, so it must be June of '87. If it's on the back of the headstock (which I don't think happened until the Soundgear basses) then I don't know, but it'd have to be late '80's.
