    Hi all,

    I just unsrewd my P's neck from the body.
    The neck had a stamp on the backside 1275.
    The body had a stamp on the heel 0872.
    I knew they weren't matching so that's no problem, but ween't the stamps more like 23-12-75 or so, or was it written even like 'august72'? What do these stamps mean, that my body is from august 72 and the neck december 75?
    There has been a lot of messing with this bas, like refinsh, getting rid of the added Jazz pick up etc. so the serialnummer is a fake I'm sure of that.
    BTW I'm just curious, this bass sounds great and is a real player so I don't feel cheated I knew things weren't original together and that most parts come from around '74.
    Thanks if you can help me out,
