Lovely bass, congratulations. I think you must have mistyped the serial number: one too many digits surely.

wow, nice one really. Is this the Spoiler offered in Wieze/Belgium ? It did not sell via eBay.
Anyway, I think, the serial # should read 88 S 5033 USA, the stamped figures in the fretboard are barely readable sometimes. Lood luck !

From 1988, the only place the number would be is stamped directly into the Ebony of the fingerboard, so when you get the bass, please write it in the electronics cavity or under one of the pickups so it isn't lost in the future.
Here's what's in the file for 88S5033:
top: Quilted Maple
neck: Maple, 32" medium scale
fingerboard: Ebony with pearloid inalys
controls: volume, filter, 2-position Q switch, 4-position rotary pickup selector switch
originally built for: Musik Tomme
birthday: not recorded, but likely late August, 1988
We haven't heard from this bass since it was built.
