Just bought a MIJ fender. all I can tell from the s/n is that it was made between 1984 and 87. looks like a 60's reissue from those years but I don't know. Are there any other clues in the s/n that could tell me more? by the way, I just stumbled across Talkbass today. Looks like a lot of fun. I'm ready to nerd out with the rest of you bass junkies.
