    Hi guys, old bass was given to me a while ago from my uncle.
    Really messed up his bass. Tried painting, revarnishing etc...
    Fender jazz bass I'm assuming from 1965-66

    I'm trying to put it back to original shape.


    Trying to find out age of pickups.

    Pots are from 1966 the 42nd week.
    No date on pickup itself only the number. 1299.
    Does it mean anything?

    Thanks
    Gates

    Fender used pots dated 66 for several years. They must have bought a bunch in 66 because you find Fenders well into the late 60's with the same pots.
