    Hi guys, I'm new here, and I have a question.
    I have this deal on een '83 JV Squier Precision

    http://www11.brinkster.com/stubru/precision.htm

    And it looks just great, but I was wondering:

    How do I read the serial number?
    I think it's supposed to start with "JV", but how do I tell it's an '83 etc.

    I hope you guys can help me out, thanks in advance

    JV stands for the following, J is for japanese and the V is for the month i believe(or for options)maybe, and yes go for the bass ! early squier's from japan are great basses,they are as good as or better than some of the american made models,i have an 87 japanese p/j bass and i love it ! the craftsmanship is without equal and it holds its tune well. may i ask how much you are paying for it ?,i've see them selling for anywhere from 200.00$$ and up,depending on condition, year, and model(p-bass or j-bass)good luck :bassist:

    I bought one back in '84 or '84 and the serial number was JV54779, if that helps.
