Can you help identify this Bass?
It has a 7 digit code stamped on the switch cover starting with a 5?
Are you able to tell me anything about it please?

I only know it was purchased in the 80’s.

Thanks

remove the [img] at either end for the links to work but better still use the BBcode full function to actually put the picture in the post but resize the image first or it will be massive :O

Looking like an 85 lbx or mbx 45 <55
Lbx is long scale
Mbx is medium scale
45 or 55 is the model designation on selling price at the time.

Thanks. I think it’s an LBX-60.

Does the code tell me anything?

I couldn’t find any reference to codes starting with a 5.

what code are you referring to? if it's the serial number on the back plate, you will need to give the full data.
