Hey guys (and gals), posted on some other forums but looking for some more answers. I recently bought a Squier mij P-bass on Reverb. I need help identifying it as I am not going to take it apart. Pretty certain the neck is an 84 JV (there's no strap button on the back of the headstock). No neck plate serial either. Unfortunately the guy did a horrible job re-fretting it so there are burn/hack marks along the fretboard. There are also suntan marks around the pick-guard, which makes it evident it isn't the original. What body could've had a wider pick-guard? It may be a later squier body cause of the laminate ply, but the aging on the olympic white and the old pickups make me believe it is pretty old. Overall, the seller deceived me but I'm looking at the bass as a rescue dog that found a good home and needs some love. Also it's on the lighter side and most importantly, sounds pretty good.
