    I'm looking to get some new pickups for a MIM fender jazz, but i dont know what year it was made and thus, which pickups to get. how do i tell what year my bass was made? how do if the pickups i buy will fit my bass?

    Look at the serial number.

    If starts with "N," made in 1990s (like "N"inties)
    If starts with "Z" made in 2000s (like "z"ero two)

    First number is actual year. For example N8xxxxxx would be made in 1998. Z0xxxxxx would be made in the year 2000.
