Hello there, I have some questions about an Epiphone bass that I own. I'm not entirely sure if it's a Japanese one or not, so I'm hoping that someone could help me. It's an ET 285, but with different looking pickups to the 1974 brochure picture elsewhere on the site. My pickups are single-coils with chrome covers that screw directly to the body, not the 'humbucker in a plastic surround' style. The serial number is 0182553, but there is no 'made in Japan' or 'Matsumoku' on the neck plate. I also have a question about an Aria 'jazz' bass that I own, but that's in the Aria section! Thanks, Mark

We are out here but, at least in my case, just don't know. I will say that every bolt neck Uncle Matt I have seen have at least "Made in Japan" on them. If you are up for it, the bridge sometimes will be stamped on the bottom also, though that just would tell you the source for the bride. Good luck.
