It wipes off
Fender Jazz from 1966. Original except for the finish.
Fender Deluxe Jazz Bass V. I took out the preamp (I hated it) and the Bartolini pickups the previous owner installed (boring!) and installed Nordstrand NJ5FS pickups and passive electronics.
Fender Standard Jazz Bass fretless. I had the neck epoxied, installed a new pickguard, Gotoh 201 bridge and Fender Custom Shop 60's pickups.
Beautiful Mr Agent... that 66 floats me. Love the Midnight Wine too!
Just subscribing to this thread.
Im really loving my HW-one now. Its got a nicer to play neck than the MIA's i had, and the tone is fantastic, thanks to a set of custom wound Wizards.
Its got a bit more kick than any other jazz bass ive owned, and while its obviously not a P it comes closer than it did before the pup change.
All in all im happy to have saved almost 50% off the cost of the MIA, and its cured my P GAS for now.
Already a member, just showing off the latest mod-

Can I get a number?
Just bought a Fender Geddy Lee -and- Marcus Miller....
Can somebody help me out with date of manufacture on these?
I'm guessing that all you need is the first few digits of the serial number, so here goes:
Geddy Lee -- "Crafted in Japan" on back of neck s/n B0119xx I'm guessing this means that it's a 85-86 model?
Marcus Miller -- "Made in Japan" on headstock s/n S0549xx -- I'm guessing 94-95...
does this seem to jive?
Fender Jazz 24
Squire Affinity Jazz
Oh right, these are my three (see above) together:
Recently purchased, added the black...thinking about adding black tuners...thoughts or suggestions on a brand?
I also have the MM Jazz Bass. When I dated mine, I found that Fender started production of the MM Bass in 1998. The 5 string came out in 2003. Fender's website seems to be a little inacurate as far as dating the goes. My Marcus Miller serial number starts with an 'a'. According to Fender's site my bass was produced in 1984-85, but actually it was made in 1998.
I would venture to say that your bass is a 2005-2006 possibly.
2000 MIM Jazz in Midnight Blue with covers and fancy strap:
2004 MIM Jazz.
Candy apple red; tort pickguard, Babicz bridge, Schaller tuners, stock pickups and a 6-position tone switch which utilizes 5 caps [1.0; .047; .033; .022; .010] + bypass. Very versatile. It also has a push/pull switch on the neck volume pot to activate series/parallel switching.
Seeing as how I am relegated to primarily using a pick [thanks to contracting a case of trigger finger] and found myself always hitting the neck volume pot I had this assembly made up by Guitar Upgrades Online with the tone switch in place of the neck volume pot, the neck pot in place of the bridge pot and the bridge pot in place of the old tone control so now it's Tone/Volume/Volume
It also make practical sense as now I'm actually using the tone control way more than I would with the standard set-up. One setting that really rocks is having it in the bypass position with the p/p pot set to parallel, the neck on full and the bridge backed off about 20%. Woody, funky and clear. Can't beat that.
Super colour Mr Mint!
Nice! I had one like this as well, except that I had the pearloid pickguard, replaced the pickups with Fender vintage '62s and put on the bakelite knobs. She was a sweet bass, but had to sell
MIM w/ Ultra Jazz pups, BadAssII bridge, Shaller Tuners and J-retro preamp
