Every now and then I like to "window shop" around the TB Classifieds, Guitar Center's used database, eBay, Reverb, etc… But earlier, I came across this sale thread. fender Jazz Bass Body | eBay According to the seller, it's American-made. To me, based upon my experience with a certain, similar model, I thought it looked more like the body of an MIM Fender Classic '70s Jazz. To be fair, if it's what I think it is, the price is right. But, to make sure the seller wasn't making an honest error, I wrote to him asking him this… Are you sure this is an American-made Fender body? It looks more like a Mexican-made "Classic '70s Jazz", a model I've owned before. I mean, there's no string-thru routing under the bridge, the bridge is a vintage-style/bent-plate construction and the placement of the bridge pickup looks to be in the "'70s position", just a bit further back. If it is a Classic '70s Jazz body, I'm certainly not saying it's overpriced. In fact, the price is pretty spot-on for that model. But if I'm right, and you do sell it listed as "American-made", I'm not the only one who will spot these discrepancies. The response I just received this very morning was as such… Thanks for your input. I purchased this loaded body off ebay from a company that sells Fender stuff. I paid right around 380.00 dollars. Also, not all that is American made have the string through type body. I have several fender basses that are American made and none of them are string through. Have a great day... Unfortunately, I'm still dubious. Could I be wrong? Absolutely! But the part in the listing stating, "Pick guard and pickups still have the plastic protective film on them." keeps bugging me and makes me wanna get all "Columbo" on him. So, rather than turn back around and call "Shenanigans!" on the seller, I thought I'd run it past the TB membership to see what Collective-All-Y'all think.
