    The last two basses I bought, (a Fender and a Musicman)
    each had a sticker on the back chrome neck plate that said CE.
    I have seen this on other new basses also.

    What's that about.

    Here's a photo.
    I know I have too much time on my hands......

    It's a european thing. the CE marking comes on all kinds of stuff.


    "CE marking is a declaration by the manufacturer that the product meets all the appropriate provisions of the relevant legislation implementing certain European Directives. CE marking gives companies easier access into the European market to sell their products without adaptation or rechecking. The initials "CE" do not stand for any specific words but are a declaration by the manufacturer that his product meets the requirements of the applicable European Directive(s)."

    Wow Hatman,
    You're awesome.
    Thanks for that very knowledgable answer.
    You are a true bass afficionado.
    Where else could I learn this stuff but on TB.
