hi there. i recently acquired a lovely lake placid blue jazz bass with fretless (hohner) neck. the seller is quite sure the body is fender of some description, but i want to know more. i took the scratch plate off. ill try to describe the routing. the control cavity is normal depth and size, but at the neck side of it, it steps up, and it is routed out to the neck pickup. i wasnt sure if fender routed their jazz basses this way before, so if any of you could shed some light on this it would be a great help. there are no markings on the body anywhere.
