Got this from stepdad when i was 11 in '72. He gave me an ameg amp and a big muff and showed me some bass lines. I played with a couple of bands and gave it up after playing smoke on the water for the very last time. Been in the case ever since and i 'm not sure what year it is. I thought he told me it was a '58 when he came home with a new fender bass. He was a good studio musician from what i was told here in chicago. I do remember him taking me to a rehearsal once at the playboy club, he was doing the musical "Hair". If anyone could time stamp this piece that would be cool,thanks. jimkat13@att.net

    The only numbers i could find on the guitar is 759 on the very last fret closest to the body. On the other side of neck at base is a pearl cover that says"made in western Germany"
