    I remember playing on a Hot Rod Precision in a music store around that time period (fiesta red P w/ P/J pickups). I think one popped up in the classifieds here not too long ago. Uncertain of whether or not there was a Jazz equivalent released around the same time! Pics please!

    Don't worry, mon Capitaine, as a Delaware resident AND having worked in/around South Jersey, trust me when I say…it's a PHILLY 'THANG!

    Seriously though, @Plucker Tom, you say it's an MIA Hot Rod Jazz. Is it one of the P/J Hot Rods or is it a J/J configuration? Without pics to point us in the right direction, we're playing a big guessing game. As a "just in case", what are the first few letters and numbers of the serial number? That might also shed some light.

    Come to think of it, armed with the serial number, you should be able to email Fender directly and ask for a model, year and color verification. They might even be able to send you a service diagram and wiring schematic for that model.

    Ah, gotcha-- Google "chrome red jazz bass" and you'll see that this was a pretty popular color for Jazz basses in the early 2000's ('03-'04). I'm actually really digging it!
     
  12. I have three HOT ROT RED!!! ;) Fenders, all guitars though. (Mark Knopfler signature Strats) Yeah, I'm a fan. :) Hot rod red is approx. half way between fiesta red and dakota red in shade.
