Hey folks, I've had this beauty for 10 years after getting it on my 16th birthday!
As soon as I felt the neck I was in love!!

It's had a lot of wear and tear, belt scratches from the ex-owner, pickups are worn smooth and a small chip in the head from a low ceiling practice room but she's still roaring!!

I found the finish really different to other status models and the black bridge seems older.

I've gathered it's birth is around '89-90 which is also mine!

Ideas on the value?

Thanks,

Tim

Also when you look at the serial number, the "4" seems completely out of symmetry with the "55"
Could this be a series 1 bass and serial number 55?
The bridge would suggest so?

Not a Series 2, looks like a FFP Matrix around 1990 to 1993 not sure when they stopped making them, worth around £800/1000

Thanks! I got it for £550 so I'm really pleased it still holds its value!
I'm thinking of adding a new bridge and pickups, I think it would look hella sexy with gold on it!

What about the serial number? Is it 455 or 55 with a fraudulent 4?

I don't think Rob ever put serial numbers in the battery compartment, you could email him to ask..

I thought it was unusual as from what I've gathered the number is usually easy to find. How can I locate his email address?
I assume its on the Contact page for the main Status website?

Sorry for the late reply, the SN was on the bridge as 645!

I really wanna know what that 455 meant but doesn't seem significant to Rob.

Yup, never ever seen an S/N loaded there. Either on the top string retainer or at the bottom!

I would say right price is about £500-700
