Hi, I have an SR800LE bass, serial # F907908.
How old is it?

The sad thing is, I bought it new, and I just can't freakin' remember what year I bought it. Any assistance would be welcome.

Also, any idea where I can get touch up paint for it? My lead guitar player has knocked it over a couple of times and chipped it badly. It's the lipstick/candy apple red color.

Well, according to a post I just read, it looks like the serial number can be decoded with the following:

Built in Japan in July of 1990...908th built that month.

It's a '99. The '98 catalog lists the SR800A and the SR800. The SR800A is made of ash. The SR800s were:

Body: basswood
Neck: SR4
Bridge: accu-cast b20
Neck pickup: afr-p; Active Full Range P, humbucking/active, ceramic magnet.
Bridge pickup: afr-j; Active Full Range J, humbucking/active, ceramic magnet.
EQ: vari-mid; 1 vol., 1 balance; 1st knob: top-treble boost/cut, bottom-bass boost/cut; 2nd knob: top-mid boost/cut, bottom-mid frequency sweep.
Colors: black, artic blue, cherry fudge. Your red is probably Candy Apple Red.
