  1. Need to add the infamous BB1200S (P Active) from the early ’80s, the active version of the BB1200. Fantastic instrument with the trademark “reverse P” PUP.

  2. I’ve got a BB1000 bolt on neck serial #002562, made in Japan. Can’t find a lick of information on it. Bought as a gift for a young bass player and would like to include a little history if I can. Any information would be appreciated!
