    I sent an email to customer service at the musicman website giving them the serial number to the Sabre bass I just got, so I can find the year it was made and he told me that he can not get that info. Does anyone know how I can find the date it was made.Please let me know if you have any idea.

    Look for an unofficial Music Man page, or some sort of Vintage MM fan club page.

    I may be wrong, but generally on a vintage you can pull the neck and check for a date, or open the cavity and the pots will be dated. The expert on old MM is Mike Burduck on this site.

    It's stamped on the heal of the neck.
