ANY scoop on this one? Seen it recently, looks awesome and REAL, just trying to verify authenticity. Possibly an '85.

Hi Rich, I did not find any previous lookup on this bass (and yes I saw it too) currently here at the forum. The serial does make it a 1985 and the "S" identifies it as a Spoiler Exploiter. I have taken the liberty to correct the thread subject to 85S3631 for when Mica is able to get to it. As you may know it takes time for these inquiries which doesn't help if there is an immediate need. It does look nice and "real" - a Spoiler Exploiter indeed! Good luck, Art

The file has the typical scant "black & chrome" from this series of builds. This one doesn't even have a birthday :-( but I can tell you it was made for Guitar Shop, Scottsdale, AZ.

An educated guess for the build details:

body: solid Maple or Mahogany
body shape: Exploiter
neck: 3-piece Maple
scale: 32" medium
fingerboard: Ebony
inlays: Pearloid (plastic) ovals
pickups: AXY
controls: "Spoiler" volume, pickup selector, filter, Q switch, mono output

It was originally registered in March of 1986. The second registered owner sent in the details in 2002.
