    In the range of 500-1000$. Or a Precision with the same specs.
    Fender made some jazz's with the same specs in the 90's(?), I'm wondering if this is realistic at all.

    This is not an ad, just looking to see some options for a future purchase.

    Thanks.

    A first generation Yamaha BB5000 would be very close to what you are looking for. The string spacing may be a shade closer than 16.5mm at the bridge. You can probably find one for $700-$800.

    +1 on the Yamaha BB5000. I'm looking for something a bit more traditional than the other's suggested. MIJ or MIA too.
