    First run 1970-1980.
    They also did a short run in the 90's.
    These bass came with lined rosewood fingerboards.
    Where the early one had unlined rosewood and maple fingerboards.
    Anything pre-1970, was a custom order from the fender factory,
    They are rare, but I've seen a 1962, and a 1966 stock fretless P-bass.
