    Hey guys, I bought this V03xxxx P bass a while back, and I'm not sure if Fullerton or Corona... No date on neck heel, but has H Montez stamped... The original case has the "duck foot" tab, so I'm hopeful... Pics attached... Any help would be appreciated :)

    I can't answer your question but that shim looks interesting..... almost like a piece of astro-turf.
    If it were mine I'd replace that shim with a wooden one that would have much less chance of compacting under pressure.
     
  3. That is an early Corona. Probably 1986-88. The flatness at the gluejoint of the slab board, the position of the decal and the serialnumber are indicators.
    82 pots, duck foot cases and peperoni guards were still used at this time.
