    I have a question for you Fender-knowledgeable folk out there. Keep in mind that I'm a complete Fender amateur, so bear with me :)

    So, what's different between a standard Jazz and the Noel Redding J?
    It's based on a mid-60's J model, ok, but what does that mean in practice?
    The nifty pickup guard (the purpose of which I never fully understood)?

    Also some general comments about the bass appreciated, I have one in a local store for about $600 used
    (mind you, that's a relatively good price where I live, new MIM J's cost $500 over here).
    I also have an option of buying a MIJ J for $320. What would you recommend?
    I really am a relative stranger to these basses, but the playability feels great so I am prowling for mine :)

    I would say if you have a ? about Fender, ask Fender. They have a web site with a contact link. Or if you want the hands on opinions of Fenderaholics, they have a forum too. I'm sure you can find it.
