    I notice on all the picks of the Geddy Lee Jazz Bass, some have 10 screws in the pick guard and some have 11 (extra by the bridge pick up).

    Is it determined on where they are made (MIJ, MIM, etc)?

    It may be a difference between the MIJ and MIM versions of the bass.

    11 screws in mine, crafted in japan is stamped on the back on the neck (by the serial number) which is close to the neck pocket, and neck plate is engraved with the "F" logo and "limited edition", not custom shop, I believe it was made in '98 or '99.

    The extra screw is by the neck pick up, in between the A and D strings (between the neck and neck pick up)

    Looks like the MIM models have the 10 screws. Weird.

    Every Geddy I've had (4 of them) has had the screw in the middle by the pickup. They were all MIJ models.

    Yeah. It seems the MIM's are the only ones with 10 screws.

    Thanks all!
