Jazz Sound Bass - help me date please?!!

Post by Finnglas » Mon Dec 15, 2008 5:22 pm


Was trying to date my bass, which I've had for about 10 years or so now - Stratman has bought a very similar one (and its gorgeous!) and I was curious as to how old mine was and has inspired me to take some action (and half an hour to try and find the bass as it was buried in my spare room). I've taken some pics (apologies for the mess on my dining table!) and uploaded them onto photobucket:


Please bear with me, its my first time!!

Thanks for any help possible, I'm really curious as to how old it is!
It's curtains for you - lacy, gently wafting curtains...

A few years younger than mine, I would guess. Mine's an 83, yours could be from about 1984 till whenever they changed the headstock shape in the UK - and I don't think we ever got a definitive answer on when that was! 84 to late 80s I would guess.

I hope you play yours more (and better) than I do. :-?
