    I'm pretty sure it has a precision and a jazz pickup, it's body doesn't look very round like most fenders and it doesn't appear to have a pickguard.

    It has a Fender shape headstock, whatever it is. The body looks like a slab body, similar to the original P bass and the later Tele bass, but they both have the Tele style headstock. It looks as if it may have the single coil P/Tele bass pickup. I don't see how you can tell that it has a bridge pickup.

    My guess? It is a late 60's paisley Telecaster bass that has been refinished and has neck from a P bass or a Jazz bass. Or it is a custom job/parts bass.

    I think it's a Fender JP-90. They were inexpensive basses that said "Made in USA" but were really assembled in Mexico, AFAIK.

  4. Not real sure. Does the dude play the same bass as in the other pics? Cause its a P/J setup with the J sitting pretty close to the bridge. Was it a P-bass special or something that had that arrangement? I ran a quick search on google and found some clearer pics with Fender on the headstock with a bit of writing afterwards. By the look of the control arrangement it might be a bit of a custom job?
