Looks phony to me, what do experts think?
I'm no expert but, that's a Fender MIK Jazz 24. Nice basses..buy it.
Looks way to legit to be a fake.
The headstock logo looks a bit misplaced to me. Seems fishy somehow. I'm not familiar with this model.
6 screw neck plate? I dunno..
I was thinking the logo looked funny.
Legit. Jazz 24. They were only made for a couple years.
There's one at my local GC for about half that price. It's kind of beat up though.
Looks like the real deal jazz 24 to me.
Google Fender Jazz 24. Pretty obvious it's real.
Looks real to me. Faking a relatively cheap korean made bass is like counterfeiting $1 bills.
I've got one of those. It looks like a legit 24-fretter except for the Noiseless pups. The original ones had SD Quarter Pounders as well as a six-bolt neck. Don't know if what the seller meant by "cleaned-up the electronics" was just a pup swap. The pre-amp in that thing is a watered down version of the SD 3-band preamp they sell on their site. I'm not sure though if the 24-fretter had real flame top or photo-flame (this never was a consideration when I bought mine). That looks like a cherry burst model (what I have is the tobacco burst one). I'm quite satisfied with what I got. Might be worth your while.
It's the real-deal. I've seen them come in cherry-burst, tobacco-burst and flat-black. If you want to see some pics of the individual parts, do an eBay search for "fender jazz 24 bass". You'll see more than a few parted-out pieces in these three colors.
As far as price goes, it's a decent price. They normally went for well over the $500-$600 mark new. The one exception I saw was late last year when Alto Music's Amazon store had over a dozen of the flat-black models on sale for $500 brand new. Fortunately word got out 'round these parts and they were sold out before I succumbed to the GAS pains.
