So as promised here are pics of my new bass It is a MIM Fender Classic 60s Jazz bass in 3 Tone Sunburst with Vintage truss rod adjustment, poly finish, and Fender Deluxe GigBag. I bought from MusiciansFriend with combination of deals for a very reasonable price of around $430 It is also my first bass, I start to learn next week after New Year can't wait The serial # begins with MX1217---- When is this bass made in? **** Update: the bass is made in Sept 14th 2012 Also, my bass did not come with any accessory kit, or strap, I bought it new, but it did not come with the aforementioned accessory kit is kind of mystifying. Do J Basses have an accessory kit when buy brand new? Please let me know, enjoy the pics.
