Hi chaps and chapesses, I've just( well yesterday ) become the owner of a MIA 1977 fender jazz. A limited edition according to the back plate. It has active emg pickups which I believe are original. Serial number is S7 38143. I've done loads of searches but can't find any information on this particular model. Any information about the whys and wherefores, intentions etc of designing and so on would be gratefully accepted Out of interest, it has a sticker on the back of the headstock which says Quiglys Music, Kansas City Missouri.Anyway, its turned up in Perth Western Australia...just a tad far from home. i have to say its very easy to play..gigged three and a half hours with it last night and it takes a lot less physically to play than my '72 precision and has heaps more personality, although I think I'd like to put in different pickups in the near future. Thankfully the other half thinks its sexy and a nice colour. Anyway, any information about this model would be much appreciated. thanks Stew.
