I found a Jaco fretted Jazz bass. It has "Jaco" inscribed on the neck plate and is 3 color sunburst with a tortoise pickguard. A very reputable guitar store in Nashville suggested it was Japanese. And that made me uneasy about the deal. However, the seller insists that it's USA. The serial # is T9000007. I'd like to have the bass. The deal in question is trading my MPG Level 5JJ to this bass. If I get it and it's Japan, then I'm stuck. Can anyone help? Thanks, Jason I'll email pics on request.
