    Guys,
    there's the possibility that I win on the Evil-Bay an old (93) MIM Jazz fretless. I've decided to move some steps into the fretless world so I need a bass just to start...this one seems a good bargain to me but this bass has a blank board: as far as I know MIM have fret lines ...any thoughts?

    Is it the original neck, or an after market neck with a Fener sticker ? Or is it a japanese neck on a Mexi body? I believe that the fretless Japanese Fenders from the 90's had blank fret boards.

    The seller claims it's a 100% original MIM. He seems to know what he's talkin about ... I visited his web page and he seems a pretty active musician...

    Hmmmmmmmmmm...I'm stumped. I looked on "Evil-bay"...is it the cream white J bass ? If it is, another thing that's consistent with the Japanese reissue basses of the 90's is the grounding strip going from the bridge pickup to the bridge. I don't think i've ever seen one on a Mexi.
    We need to find Inspector Clousea to clear this up !
