Hello - first post, hopefully I can work out how to post images! I'm currently looking at buying at Jazz Sound and hoped for any information I can get on dating it:

Thanks Luis - apologies for asking but how can you tell? What are the clues that a detective can use?!

Apologies - I forgot to post a picture showing the whole shape of the headstock earlier:

Because headstock shape and the logo mainly. I have to check other things like neck pocket and wiring to be 100% sure however. Back in 1985 we have APB with "cut" headstock shape and afterwards the Italic logo Custom Edition somewhere in 1986.....

I stand corrected myself it is post 1984 because APB headstock shape.

Thanks Luis - so we're looking at sometime between 1984 and the early 1990's perhaps?

It could be ,we need to check for neck pocket inscription to be sure and for the model as far as Tokai PB/PJ were ressiue in 2000s too....

The L serial engraved on neck plate would poin t us to a 1965/65 replica as far as Peter Mac stand in an old post.

Thanks again Luis - if I ever get to taking the neck off for a proper look then I'll certainly post an update here.

For me, regardless of age, it's a nice bass with good tone so I'll make sure I make the most of it!
