    My new Rumblefish has the following numbers on the headstock:

    #00394
    JTN
    Bass #28

    Anyone know what that means?
     
  2. 00394 - Yours is the 394th Reverend instrument made.
    JTN - Joe Naylor's initials
    Bass #28 - Yours is the 28th bass made.

    Congrats! Tell us more - color, Rumblefish, impressions, etc?
     
  3. Damn!!!! That's great, man. You really got one of the early ones. Yours is white with the tort guard, right?
    My blue one is #00465, bass #47, and my white one is #00502, bass #62.

    Nice job on the 28th bass. How many did they end up making?

    Thank you!
    I found it hanging in a local music store and picked it up for just over five bills. The color is white with a red tort. p/g. It plays like a dream. The neck is wonderful. The only problem is a small hair-line crack about an inch long near the arm thingee. It is now my favorite bass.
     
  6. Here's the word, direct from Joe Naylor:
    "I don't have an exact number, but I'd guess around 800 total basses (all models)."

    Only 800 total, eh? Considering they've been making basses for about 8 years no wonder they threw in the towel.
