    Hi everyone.

    I'm going to check out a used Fender Jazz on Friday.

    How do I know if the bass is in good shape? what parts of it should I keep my eyes open to?

    one other thing, the painting of the body is peeling a bit on one side. Does that really matter? or is overall sound quality more important?

    it is a 1990 MIA Fender J.


    thanks a lot
