    Hi guys,

    I havent touched a bass in years but ran across a nice looking Jazz bass last saturday at the flea market for 30$ so couldnt pass it up.

    As soon as I saw the "made in japan" on the neck plate I bought it. Im guessing the neck is a replacement neck as it doesnt have any branding on it.

    Can anyone help me ID the bass with these photos? Or am I going to need to take the neck off and look for a serial nr? :eek:

    I'll have to change it from a lefty Bass back to normal right handed bass by exchanging the nut. Is that process difficult or could I do it myself?

    Thanks guys....

    Yeah, no prob switchin' (reversin') nut orientation from lefty to righthanded yourself

    Ugly pickguard positionin' (9 out of 10 it's a tort retrofit of a three ply black/white/black original one)

    Other than that chances are it's a small, underestimate, jem
