    I'm interested in a Fender Jazz at the moment and is has a serial number of DZ 2186***. The guy who is selling it is not sure how old it is as he bough it used.

    I'm a bit confused myself as it looks about six years old and I would expect a serial number looking more like DZ 08*****.

    Any ideas..? thanks.

    According to the Fender dating web site, it's a 2001, if it's an American Deluxe Jazz. If it's an American Vintage Series, they suggest checking the neck date.
