Trying to date my bass


image|375x500 Recently purchased this black widow bass. Serial number is 1118 haven’t really seen another one with the knobs mounted on top. Can you help me date its manufacture and any other info would be appreciated.


Picture doesn’t seem to appear


When I first saw this forum and answers to people’s request for information, I thought… Wow, cool. But I’m not so sure any one is answering these questions anymore.
I’m going to stop waiting for a reply to my question and just assume my bass was made early 60’s and keep rocking.
Thanks for contracting someone else to build my bad ass fret less bass Hohner.
