Does anyone know what years the ASB-140 (ES-style, double-cutaway, single pickup) was manufactured? I just got one that was made in 2005. I'm curious as to whether these were offered any other year?

After looking through the catalogs, it seems this particular model was only made in 2005 and sold in 2006. Its sister, the AGB140 (brown Les Paul style) had a longer run until the two pickup models came out. Anyway, I'm glad I found one. It's a nice bass.

This ASB140 has a crack on the back of the headstock. I removed the E-tuning machine and the crack does not SEEM to go all the way to or through the wood. It only appears to be in the finish. Has anyone else noticed cracking on their ASBs or AGBs?
