    Yes, could be.

    Joel also told me that they had to enter a '0' in front of a five digit number in order to bring it up in their database. (That conversation was before the introduction of the...

    The B027XXX serials are interesting. As Rod said, they're not recorded in the EBMM database as such. In my experience, instruments with those numbers are usually from 1988, although there may well be...

    Clear guards were pretty common on some finishes in the '80s. I've seen many on Bluebursts, Trans Reds, or Sunbursts, for example. I don't know, however, whether they were made by EBMM in-house or...

    Thanks, drT!

    So the side dots are entirely inside the rosewood (or pao ferro) on yours, albeit closer to the maple than to the top of the fingerboard, is that correct? (Sorry, I haven't seen that...

    What makes you say that? I can't see the exact position of the side dots on the photos in your link.

    Anyway, on a 1997 they should be entirely within the rosewood and not at the joint. It changed...

    The side dots on this neck are where the fret markers are. It's the position they would be in on an unlined fretless. If the neck was originally fretted, that wouldn't be the case - they would be...

    Great looking bass, even with the damage! I wouldn't do anything drastic. Why not get some input from Customer Service? This looks fixable to me.

    Thanks for measuring. Good to know they fit well. I'll go for a clear and a matt white one, I think.

    Thanks for sharing. I would be curious as to how thick it is... I have a 1988 Sunburst Sabre with (what I think is) an original clear guard, measured it only yesterday - it's 1.54 mm. Very thin - no...

    Fair question.

    The shop actually had three of those black Classic SR5s. Initially, when seeing them on the website, I was interested in the lightest of the bunch - 9.3 lbs - purely because of the...
