Hey Ed,

Interesting indeed! I got nothing on the build record. There is a note from my dad on Feb 21, 1979 that there was no card in the file :-(

But there are records of some 1979 modifications when you sent it in in March of that year: installed LEDs with a dimmer and added a master volume control, and the bridge was replaced. Dad replaced the bass channel FET (input was shorted). In 1985 the LEDs were repaired, and I see an estimate that sort of indicates these items may have been done: counterbore tailpiece area, new nut, then something I don't quite understand, "Straighten up check pickup lower holes action bridge" so we did SOMETHING with all that, I just can't quite figure out what from the notes.

Please have your grandson register the bass with us. It's an honor that it will remain in your family.

And yes, I would love pictures. You can post here or email them to me.
