    Bought a MM Fretless SUB bass a couple years back from a guy in Memphis, Serial # X04346, I payed 400 for the bass and Hard case, I think I got a pretty good deal, but I would like to know some more info about it, Whenever I do see SUB basses I don't see fretless ones, any idea how many fretless were made? Thanks!

    Thanks Gav,
    I'm having a full setup done soon, so will investigate to find a hidden date then.
    Thanks again for your help.

You could be lucky and find a dated written with a felt pen on the back of the pre-amp control plate. It was around this time (or a little latter) that they began dating the pre-amp.

    It's a 1977 (or early 1978). Most likely the former. No official data exists. Dates are on the neck heel and neck pocket.

    DOB: October 15, 2003 We did offer these with the fretless option, but in our database, this serial number comes up with a fretted neck.

    I posted here and it said "waiting approval from moderator" but the post never appeared.

    It's a Sterling s/n B03925
    4 H, maple fretboard, color looks some sort of dark blue? Seems to be a '96.

    :O is there anyway to check on the authenticity of the fretless neck, or just the whole bass's authenticity?

    And thank you for the info

    Unfortunately the serial number is attached to one complete instrument as it leaves the factory, so if a swap was done later, there is really no way for us to look anything up in our system regarding that.

    What a fantastic service you are doing Aziah!
    I just joined the forum today after aquiring my first (used) MM Ray. I love it!
    I was wondering if I could get some info on it (DOB, colour, shipping destination). I'm not sure if these earlier ones are in the database.

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately that serial is not in our database, I would put it at 1988
