    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
    Rosewood fingerboard

    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. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/...eissue-precision-bass-candy-apple-red-832905/

    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.

    Edit:better pictures added below

    They don't all have neck dates. I've had earlier MIJ Fender basses that had no neck date... just the inspection stickers on the bottom of the neck heel. As long as it has a serial number, (which you do), you're all good. It looks totally authentic to me.

    Neat piece with that decal. You should def list the weight. I've had some SQ models in burst that were pretty heavy but not all are.

    It is of moderate weight. Not a back breaker. No scale at my house currently.
