    1994-1995 MIJ Fender Foto Flame Jazz bass body with pickups, electronics, bridge, and pickguard (NO NECKPLATE). This body doesn't have a mark on it. None of the bubbling/cracks that some of these bodies are known to have. Bass has a gorgeous Honey colored finish. I checked under the bridge and there is no ground wire routing, thus explaining the piece of copper (I think) between the bridge pickup and the bridge itself.

    This bass weighs in at a light 6.2 lbs with the loaded body. I think these pickups are the originals. It has a nice scooped tone to it. Has a nice cream colored pearloid pickguard on it as well. Volume pots are slightly scratchy, but nothing bad at all.

    $340 in the Louisville, KY area. Buyer pays shipping if I need to ship it.

    I had an original one of these, that I sold like an idiot.
    The pickguard on the original is white, and mine was much more yellow and less amber, and of course mine had the telltale cracks in the gloss.

    So this one is in beautiful shape! How'd you come across it??

    Bought it at a used store, and fell in love with the neck, but the body is just not for me. I hate to piece it out, but the neck is going on a body that I love. Just don't need the body.

    Will a Mexican neck fit this body?

    I would think so. It's the standard fender neck pocket dimensions.

    Looks gorgeous! I'm impressed it's in such good condition. drool :thumbsup:

    That kind of grounding is very common amongst the Fender-Japan JB62's.

    It should. I have a Cherryburst Foto-Flame body mated with a Squier Classic Vibe Jazz neck, which has specs practically identical to an MIM Jazz neck. Odds of a decent-to-perfect fit are in your favor. :thumbsup:
