My new old bass turned up today, serial # 2589, so it's an earlyish Gibson -era. I dunno, maybe 1995 or so. Apart from a crackly jack socket it's in very good condition. I know it's been shut in its case for 20 years unused. The frets are mint, no dings or scratched. Not sure, but the body wings look to be mahogany or similar. Anywho, I'm a happy camper. Will post some pics over the weekend.
