Date Question

Postby DigthemLows » Wed Mar 05, 2014 5:47 pm

Ok, so, for the hell of it I took the 78 apart.......then I started reading the interwebs, oh what a scary thing. Hehe......So, all things pan out, although interestingly I guess.

Pots are both 1976
Pickguard serial matches headstock, which is a 78, pickup is 172378 which I understand is 78. Neck is a J Torres 2383 which I understand is 78 .... can't read much in the body, but check the pic........any idea?

crazy how the 70s basses seem to be put together in the factory from parts bins.....hehe........

I can't make anything specific out in that pic although your 78 has similar stamps to my 78 ash P's neck pocket. IIRC mine are green instead of black? It's been quite a while since I dismembered my P I can't remember.

yeah, but since everything else checks out...........it's a 78............. I like it, but it may also become trade bait so I wanted to make sure it is what it is.............

I wanted to clarify that in no way was I trying to say it wasn't a 78. I believe it is too. I think Kebo would be the man to ask if you want an expert opinion.
