hi,
I am looking at a 1978 precision bass, the serial number is S882***, so this does place it as a 1978,
But the neck code reads as 0102X0805
01 Precision
02 Maple neck
X random letter used on 75 to 78 no meaning except as a separator between the numbers?
08
05

Does that seem right?.
Could it be a 1975 produced neck used on a 1978 guitar.
Like the neck was made in 75 but not actually put on a guitar till 78 then the serial number was put on the headstock!.

the body is refinished, would there be any marking numbers or codes on the body of a 1978 I could check for?

any assistance appreciated

not sure how to add photos!
