Re: 5 strings Status... no clue!
I've written an email to Rob from Status: he says that it is indeed an Energy from the mid 90s, but he doesn't know about that switch. Eclipses have four knobs and, if I recall correctly, they have a top...

Re: 5 strings Status... no clue!
Or is it an Eclipse?

Either way, remember, it's a bit short of a full Status, having only a carbon re-inforced neck...

Re: 5 strings Status... no clue!
anyway, I'm trying to get it for 400 euros... it would be a fair price, right?

I learned how to play bass on my music teacher's Status Groove, it's the only Status I've ever played and I liked it a lot, but it's been almost 20 years since then and I don't know what price would be right...

Re: 5 strings Status... no clue!
Thank you for the answer!

I thought it was a 5 string energy too, but I don't see any model with both the clearer part at the end of the neck and the toggle switch... maybe it has been customized in some ways?

Of course, the seller doesn't know anything about it... just that it sounds terrific Grin

Re: 5 strings Status... no clue!
Seems to me to be a 5 string Energy bass from the 90's

Take a look here that might help : https://www.statii-catalogues.com/ and here specifically for a catalogue that includes the Energy model https://www.statii-catalogues.com/pro...990's and there are many more.

Hope that helps and sure other members can contribute!

Re: 5 strings Status... no clue!
Hello there,

I'm in the market for a Status. I've found a good deal on a 5 strings. I don't know which model it is: it looks like an Energy, 5 strings, 3 knobs, one toggle switch (guessing for active-passive), serial number 3579... any clue?

Re: dating my (beautiful) bass
Hi guys,
would somebody kindly be of help?
I recently acquired a used beautiful bass and I would really appreciate if you could tell me what model it is and what is the year of construction. Information I can find on the catalogue section is not univocal, in my humble opinion. Mostly because I can't see a real difference between Empathy and Series 2.
The instrument has apparently 2 serial numbers: one is on the walnut central piece of body and it says "2477".
The other one is on a paper label and it says "0481922 - made in England".
No truss-rod is present in the graphite neck.
Picture attached.
Thanks!

Re: T-Bass info?
I recently aquired a 1997 T-Bass SE, but finding reliable info is proving hard. Serial number is 97 SE 024. Does anyone know how many were made of the different models/finishes? This one is a natural flamed top.
Responded in T-Bass info?

Wondering what the exact moment was that Rob started producing the S2 Matrix.

Cause when I peek at the catalogues section I find a French and English review, both from '91 about the introduction of headed basses. But on page 5 of Brochure 4 (which is from 1988) there is already a choice given between headless and headed. So now I'm a bit confused.

Btw: my S2 matrix has serial 104.

However I don't quite understand Rob's procedures, while there is an old warranty with the bass with all the specs of it, but........without the date of completion. Strange, isn't it???


I share your confusion. I'm just awaiting delivery of the one from luckylips that is currently on the for sale forum and trying to understand what was called what, when and why seems a bit of a minefield.

So far I seem to have established the following although I would welcome any more learned members to correct me:

When first introduced the headed options were initially signified by the ‘Matrix’ suffix so an S2 Matrix, Empathy Matrix etc.
The Matrix name was then used as a model name in its own right and so headed basses thereafter no longer had a different identifying suffix, they were just known as a S2, Empathy etc headed or headless.

Also, was it at this time that the 'cricket bat' wider graphite through body (i.e. visible from both sides) was discontinued or did they continue with an option of both the narrow and wider types of construction?

Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Level 42 Anniversaery Bass EAN number
An EAN if I am correct is a type of barcode which is unique to a product and manufacturer? I don't think you get one of these unless you register with a barcode issuer and then you can buy a set of unique codes which are then specifically for your product (so when someone scans your Sony TV, the scanner wont say its a can of baked beans). I am pretty sure Status don't issue barcodes for their products, given each one is different (tone woods, headstock, facing woods etc) and an EAN code refers to a specific configuration. Otherwise they could start selling them at Sainsburys.... Now that would make the weekly shop more interesting Smile
