OK - closed my eyes, clicked the mouse button and purchased a "new" Fender American Special Jazz Bass on Amazon. Did my research and realize there are people on both sides of the Amazon fence - the Fender website indicates Amazon is an authorized dealer so I figured I would give it a shot. Bass arrived in factory-sealed condition; everything appears to be in good order. Something caught my eye - nothing mechanical or cosmetic - just the serial number. It appears I received (in July 2013) a "new" Fender Jazz Bass from the 2011 production year. Questions: (1) Are there any design or component differences between the 2011 production year and 2013 (pick-ups, neck design, etc.)? (2) Is production year alone (2 years ago) enough reason to return the bass to Amazon and pursue a "newer" new bass? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated - thanks.
