1984 rare Fender label (not squier as most commonly seen) JV series (JV9****) Probably a 1984 and therefore an Export only model, which I had read is the best. I think they are all amazing, so I cannot attest to this.
I strongly believe this is one of the last JVs ever made. All hardware is original and tarnished.
Sunburst finish, white pg
original knobs (they are kind of cheesy looking knobs, not flattop vintage style, but chrome dome style)
original everything as far as I can tell
Great condition except for one big scratch and small dings on back.
$700 shipped with neck off!
I have some confusion over why the neck isnt dated. I have done research that supports it to be what I think it is. That said, Please understand I cannot be 100% sure. That said, I have seen other 1984 JVs with the except same specs. There was a CAR one sold here a couple years ago as well. REDUCED! 1984 Fender JV 1962 Reissue Precision Bass Candy Apple Red
Edit: lownote has informed me that they dont all have neck date stamps
also, this neck is definitely (i believe) original to the body, as there is some paint residue on the neck.
Overall this is a confusing but neat instrument. Hardware has a natural patina; pickguard is still unusually white. Definitely selling as-is because I just cant be sure of the details.
