    Hi, Folks.

    I found a pretty nice P-bass in a Pawnshop. It's in excellent condition and I would like to purchase it but not before I find out as to it's date of manufacture (just what year it is).

    The serial # is E 317317. It's black with a white pick guard and, strangely, it has WHITE and not black pickups. They look like fender standard issue P.U.s other than the color.

    Just wondering if there's a place to go on the web (or some Fender Savant) where I might find out when the instrument was made.

    Thanks,

    I have two references that agree on 1983 as the date.

    The white pup covers don't really surprise me. Fender has made lots of test market products and experimental stuff. If it's a big deal to you, you could ask about them at the Fender website.
