    Looks sort of like it might've started life as a Modern Player Jazz and then got some mods.

    Looks like a Modern Player Jazz to me.

    Yup. Non satin version of the modern player with the gloss finish and no coil tapping.

    Good to know. Also relieved a local business didn't get screwed.

    They're okay basses. The newer version was something special though. One of my favorite Fenders ever.

    It's indeed a Modern Player Jazz.
