    I have one of these that I picked up new in the late 90's. The numbers on the plate covering the screws on the back of the body are J336 of J500. I am assuming this is the serial number. Can anybody tell me anything about this bass? It's a great playing bass, but I just don't play it that much.

    They were part of a series made in 1996.
    500 Jazzes, 500 Precisions, 500 Jazz V's, 2500 Strats, and I think the same number of Teles.
    Bookmatched flamed maple on front and back of body, Sunburst finish, gold hardware, black tolex case.
    I've got a P and a J, and they are both very nice.

    Here's a couple of bad pics of the Jazz :
