I was going to post asking the question of how to date my Fender Jazz Bass. But I google searched it for a while and found this great link... Date your Fender from Serial Number Turns out I have a 95. Older than I thought. I bought it a couple years ago, and kind of thought is was a 98-2000. Its just underplayed and looks great! If a modeator reads this, please consider adding this category to the FAQ list. If anybody out there has this kind of info for other bass brands, post the links.
