I'm trying to understand what VP means?
F: fretless
4: strings
TN: tigro negro
5280: bass number
06: build date (2006)
VP: ?
Moreover, is this bass has graphite in the neck? Any other informations about this bass will be welcome.
Thanks in advance
Franck

VP =

V=5 piece body wings
P= 4A presentation grade. One grade below 5A exhibition.



All Black Tiger basses have Graphite inlaid necks.



This bass has the Oil/Varnish finish, different than the Elite model which is a harder lacquer finish.
