I have noticed that sometime in the late '80s or early '90s the shape of the headstock on the 4000 series basses changed. The crest of the wave (above the A string) got fatter on the later basses. Can anyone tell me the reason behind the change? Were the older ones breaking off too easily or something?

Just curious,
Eric

speaking of headstock shape, is there a story behind the tip on the 4000 series basses. It seems only the 400 and 4000 series instruments have this tip. If anyone knows the story i would love to hear it.:)

This is about to become a very short story. Anyway, it's just a stylistic thing.
