Wow, popping out $1800 just like that?!
What do you do, and how do you do it?
When you encounter a nice 30 yo JM like this, money is no object. Right?
It may or may not have a "7-digits" stamp on its neck heel, which states model code (JM being 01 shared with Precision Bass?), fingerboard variety (01 for rosewood), week of the year (last week of December being 52), and the year in single digit. They say a lot of necks are missing such stamps as it went toward late 70's. If you have a chance, I am just curious.
I have a '78 Mustang and will check its serial number later to see how close or far they are.
