I bought my 4001 30 years ago and it was in some disrepair. I was able to recondition it but when I bought it it had no jack plate. Any idea how to date it without the jack plate? Or at least come close to it's age? I don't think the pots are original either.

You might try posting a few pictures .. and that might help some knowledgeable people identify key things, which might place it in certain sequence of years. Such as shape and length of headstock, or certain hardware utilized, or the shape of the pickguard.

Have you ever looked in the body cavity under the pickguard? Sometimes staff at the factory write things on the instrument itself, while it is in the manufacture and assembly phase....
