    That reads like the specs of the Korean-made Fender Jazz 24, except that it was made from 2005 to 2008-ish & then resurrected as an Indo-made Bass from 2010-12.

    Pictures always help... :smug:

    Sounds like the Jazz 24 to me too.
    When was this revived as a Indonesian-made instrument? I don't remember that...

  8. It pulls up with several articles here, and google as the Fender Jazz 24. Ebay still has them for sale in black with the full original description.
     
  9. Thanks for the replies. I was hoping to hear from someone who
    Owns or had owned one to get there opinion on the playability
    And construction.
