    Were the '79 P basses string through? I thought they were, but I'm not sure.

    I had a 79 p-bass with a stock factory installed bridge and it was not a string through body.
     
  3. No, '79 P-Basses didn't have strings-through-body bridges. The first generation P-Basses did but the "modern" P-Basses didn't receive them until the mid-1990's...1996, if I remember correctly.
