I have a Fender Jazz Bass. Please see image links.
I have detached the neck and unscrewed the neckplate, and the only numbers I can find on the guitar are on the head of the neck underneath the Fender logo:
PAT 2,573,254 2,960,900 3,143,028 2,968,204
Are these numbers specific just to this instrument? i.e its fingerprint.
I would like an approximate year and country of manufacture.
All help appreciated, many thanks.
