    Doingh a little research on a less than vintage Fender P. Can anyone tell me the year Fender started going with string through bodies again on their American P's? I think it was 1980, but am not sure. The bass in question has an s9xxxxx serial but a string through body. Not sure they offered that in '79. Any info would be great.
    Thanx

  2. I think it was 1996...certainly it was in the mid-1990's. I bought a sunburst P-Bass the first year they came with the string-through bridge.
