    ...or does this body not look like a real Jazz?


    What's up with that upper horn? Am I the only one who thinks it looks wrong?

    Also, don't the MIA basses have only the pickup whole routed on the front?

    I'm asking what the deal with the bridge is too.

    That's a Jazz Bass Plus body. That's why it looks so awkard

    Good try beav2k2 but thats not a Jazz Plus. This is a Jazz Plus...

    Which has control cavity in the rear. Notice the Kubicki Control Line up Config.

    What is on the ebay link is an Am deluxe Bass without a pickguard, otherwise known as the Longhorn or Boner. What is odd is that it has no string thru but has the recent HS logo. Current Am Dlx's have string thru and top load bridges.

    The Street Cred around here is atrocious.

    Ah, dang it. They're the same body style though.

    i used to have a 1992 standard jazz bass. that year and 1993 (i think) fender changed there body styles to a shape referred to as a "longhorn". this looks just like one but the neck doesnt look like the longhorn neck i had.
