  1. Anyone else familiar with these?

    Any idea what year the serial number is from: 1040049 or where I can find out?

    I had a 1980 VS600 w/ the split P pickup once upon a time. It was a fantastic player for not much coin. Mine was made by Matsumoku in Japan. Don't know much about them other than I was very satisfied with it. Sold it to make room for some other gear...

    It's from 1981. The first number in the serial number is the year (for most models from the 80s anyway).
    It's a very nice bass!
    I have two (one dark and one light finish)
  5. Thanks. Just picked up a fretless one (rosewood unlined board)
