    I have the oppertunity to buy an 80's jazz and would like some info. Have been searching TB but cant seem to find much about made in USA 80's Jazz basses. The bass is in a shop so no pics at this time. It does have an E serial number. 80's MIA Fenders seem to have a bad wrap. Are they really that bad?

    Pics really help.
  3. A local bass player has a black 80's.. white pickups and a one peice white scratchplate with white knobs...it works for me!!!

    Sorry, no pics as yet. It's not the solid pick gard, it has the f capped vvt controls and and the smaller f stamped tuners. I'm more after broad opinions.

    MIA or MIJ? I can speak first-hand for late 80s/early 90's MIJ's which are fantastic.

    Good and/or bad... you really need to get your hands on it.

    Probably heavy.

    Most 80's Fenders are very decent, IME. As mentioned earlier, it's probably heavy. Especially if it's an early 80's model.
