I've recently acquired a JV Precision, neck date April 29th 1982, serial number JV01374.
Two colour sunburst, ma neck, single ply white pickguard.
Am I correct in thinking that this is one of the first produced?

I'm really new to all of this but I have an interest because it was only this week that I'd found out that the jv series precision basses were sought after.
I have a 3 colour sunburst, rosewood fretboard, 3 ply scratchplate so that would be the '62 vintage. The date on mine is 4-30-82 and the serial number is jv01410 so not long in the production line after yours.
Mine has been in pretty much constant use since I bought it used in 1984, but it still has all the original parts except for some new strap locks.
I'd be really keen to see what price I can put on it.

According to this,it's of very early production.

I was going to sell it for £120 a few weeks ago but then purely by chance I saw that it was worth a bit more than that. Lucky escape.
It never occurred to me why it played and sounded better than my '78 USA precision.
