early 80s dating help

Post by grawk » Sun Jun 10, 2018 2:17 pm

I've owned this bass since the mid 90s, and when I bought it it didn't have a serial on the neck plate, or any stickers, or the scratch plate.

I need help dating it if possible.

Back of headstock,
pickup cavity
neck plate
bottom of scratchplate

As these varied between Models and Years, good clear pics will help determine a more accurate Year and Model. . . and it was built between 1980 and 1982.

The world will not end today...because it is already tomorrow in Australia.
