Ibanez Custom Agent

Hi!
I have an Ibanez Custom Agent 2405 in a cherry red finish, which I bought new in 1976.
I've tracked it down to being a !974-1975 model, with Super 70 pups (I have the original documentation), but would be interested in knowing which year it is.
No serial #, since it's pre-lawsuit, but there is a code "Y-12" stamped at the top end of the finger board under the E & A strings…any ideas?

Fender bass neck code 0103 3814?

Hi,
I've got a fender p bass with a neck code of 0103 3814.
Does that mean its a 1971 or 1981? It has the old style head stock decal (no serial number below "fender").It looks old enough to be a 1971 but does the neck code support that date?
Thanks,
Mark
