Hi from Australia
Paisley
Hey everyone, Status newbie here! Smile

I recently picked up a Shark 5 String. Great little Bass; I was after a passive 5 String for recording (all my 5 Strings are active) & it came up for a good price, so I grabbed it. It was originally going to be purely for recording; however after doing a bit of a setup on it it's fast becoming one of my favourite Basses, so I'm going to look at gigging it a bit (once we actually get back to gigging that is....). Grin Has a few chips & nicks, & the pickguard looks like it's not only warped but shrunk as well, but it sounds & plays really nice.


Just out of curiosity does anyone know how to decode the four digit serial numbers? From what I've read I'm pretty sure mine's a mid-90's model (tort pickguard with the single chrome pickup in the P bass position), but it'd be nice to know for sure.

Cheers all. Smile

Welcome!

Not even Rob understands the Serial Numbers he used!!!

Glad you're loving your Status. They are superb basses.

If you have a look at 'The Database' you might be able to find another one similar to yours which might give clues to the age!

Cheers; thanks for the reply. Smile

Haha; yeah I suspected the serial number may have had little to nothing to do with the build date. Grin

I'm curious more than anything else; I've seen a few other Sharks & they all had a printed six digit serial number, however mine just has an inked on 4 digit number (it's actually faded to the point where you can just barely read it).

Good idea about the database; I'll go through it later & see if I can find any numbers in the same range as mine.

Cheers! Smile

You can always ping Rob & Dawn. Sometimes they can shed some light on an older bass.
