NV and K in front of Serial Numbers?
« on: December 15, 2013, 11:01:34 PM »
1. Friend has a Force 4 ABT, 2006. The serial number has NV  starting it out. Any idea what the NV means? I pressume it refers to country of manufacture.

2. Another buddy has a 1985 B-70RS with the serial number starting with "K". Does that mean one of the Kasuga factories or Korea. I think 1985 would be early for Korean Washburn builds and I believe Matsumoko (a) did not put letters with the basses SN's and (2) finished their Washburn involvement in 1984.  ????
