    Yup, real.
  3. eh like I said i thought it would have more ont he headstock than just Fender Jazz Bass.

    I don't really look at or pay attention to Fenders much, so that would explain that!

  5. Just saw one at GC yesterday. They've been out for a couple of years. $1100 is not correct selling price though. Its more like $899.

    Nope, Korean-made. By Cort IIRC. Very solidly built; no quality issues and it plays like a dream. That listing is the real deal.

    And yes, it just says "Fender Jazz Bass" on the headstock.

    It's a pretty neat jazz bass and it gives you two full octaves so not bad at all.

    They came out in late 2006 or early 2007 IIRC, Korean made. I've played a couple, they're nice, but not my bag. Seems like a decent price!

    2005 is when Fender came out with them. List price is $999, so yeah, that's a good price.

    So if you see a 2008 Deluxe Five String Jazz with that kind of logo, does that mean it is made in Korea? What if it has a serial number that says DZ8? I thought that meant it was made in the USA if it says that on the back? How do you know where it was made?
  13. I used to own one of these.

    S/N beginning with DZ8 is an American Deluxe Series made in 2008. And yes, it will say where it's made on the back of the headstock.
