    Hi Folks

    I have the opportunity to purchase what I believe to be an original Fender Jazz bass, sn: 694xxx

    Couple of questions.

    The seller say's it's a 1975, does that sound about right ?

    The neck is stamped J Torres, but has no date stamp from what I can tell. Is this OK, or is it a replacement neck ?

    Hope to hear from all you Fender experts.

  3. J Torres is a pretty common Fender neck stamp name. I dont know who he is? Im sure others will have the complete story, but that sounds legit to me.

    Dunno, but I've seen that stamp a lot!
