    Assuming this isn't a fake. Doesn't look like it though. (Fingers crossed)

    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...
