I have a '74 Jazz Bass with maple neck and pearl blocks, 4 bolt neck (this was a transition year to the 3 bolt neck).
From "The Fender Bass, An Illustrated History" (Hal Leonard, Black/Molinaro authors):
"1974/1975 - the thumbrest is moved to the bass side of the body. ...maple necks are given pearl block inlays and white binding. Three bolt necks are becoming the norm on the Jazz Bass, and installation of black pickguards is being standardized on all models."
Bass is the heartbeat.
