Here it is....
Any info much appreciated. It was my 1st bass, sounds great but is really heavy and not so practical for a long gig...
serial number is 1804208...
I have it in the shop getting set up at the moment cos it needed some love. Nearly imposible to find a cast that fits though.

The basics look a lot like Henry's Blazer without a pickguard, but I think it's an RS900NT.
The fitting case: RSB-C ($115.- in 1980).
I've no picture, sorry.

It's got the good pickup on it, like Henry's and my Blazer alright.

Here's a picture of the RS900 from the '79 catalog, looks like a perfection match:
Here's the specs from the catalog:
Scale length: 34"
Neck: 22 frets, laminated rock maple, with Quadra Lock
Fingerboard: Rock Maple with black dots
Pickup: Super 4
Bridge: AccuCast B with brass saddles
Machines: Hercules B
