    The "MN" at the beginning of the serial number indicates that it was made in Mexico. Looks like either a MIM Jazz that was stripped to a natural finish and had the knobs replaced and bridge cover added, or a neck from a MIM bass put on a replacement body.

  2. Id agree that it was stripped to natural because I can see a change in color of wood that I have never seen with a naturally natural bass ;)

    Looks like a deal to me, assuming the price doesnt go up a lot, which, with that many bids, it might.
