Can anyone ID this Fender Jass Bass?
I've inherited a Fender Jazz Bass and want to know how to identify it (year - model - value). Can you help?
DES 187 001

Best thing to do is call or email Fender's customer service department with the serial number. Their contact info is on the website.

Serial number is probably on the neck plate or the back of the headstock.

just google fender serial no's and you'll find easily.

Classic color combo. Some may help with approximate age. There's a rule regarding "What It's Worth?" threads that may require a supporting membership.

I've checked extensively and found no serial number. After taking apart the neck, the inner angle reads Nov 26 of either "1968" or "1988," but it's too faded too tell for sure.
Repeat: no serial to be found. What else can I use?

Judging by the headstock, it's not a '68 Jazz. It looks like a '62 reissue with the wrong knobs. It might be a parts bass, with a '62 reissue neck from 1988 with maybe some Fender parts.

Looks to me the headstock decal is not original, it looks wrinkled. Could be the lighting, though.

... this .
and there does seem something wonky
about the decal .
just for the heck of it, measure the length of the two pickups ... same length, or bridge longer?
.. nothing at all on the back of the headstock? strap button, small hole, any lettering?
Edit to add: .. when you say you have inherited it ... you mean a relative? ... how far back can you trace it?
