    Ok. A guy here is selling a Fender Jazz. It looks old from the pics but I cant tell. It has NO Serial #. ONLY patent and DES #'s. neither if which I can make out from the pictures. Can anyone help me date this from what I've said and these pics? VERY much appreciated. !!!! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1360524602.780839.jpg

    Assuming this isn't a fake. Doesn't look like it though. (Fingers crossed)
     
  5. Looks FAKE. The "Jazz Bass" lettering is complete fakery. I wouldn't touch it.

    I'm no Fender expert, but I've never seen logo with that font.

    Just saw a few images of 'serviceman' basses made in the Philippines. Copies obviously. The lettering looks almost identical. I'm guessing that's what this is.

    No question. A fake. Offer him $50 and have some fun modding it out or something. Tweak the logo to Lender Lazy Days. That'll fit...

    I agree. Looks fake.
