Serial Number T40?

Post by rehoward » Fri Apr 10, 2020 11:45 pm

Hello all,

I have been trying to identify the year of manufacture for my T40 bass. My serial number is only 6 digits long and I have not been able to find any list that has a 6 digit serial number. My number is 211152. Thanks for the help

All T-40s with a six-digit serial number come from early in the 1978 production run and are among the first production T-40s that were made. One of my T-40's is S/N 211100, so it's entirely possible that yours and mine were made the same day. :)

I bought my 6 digit (200031) when they were first released. I think I bought the first one in the Houston areas.
