At the local music shop, they had a jazz bass that looked just like a '62 reissue (red tort pg, chrome pickup & bridge covers, finger pull rest by the G string, black finish) except for the fact that it had 3 of the black plastic knobs instead of concentrics. So my next thought was a 64 NOS hyper but then they don't do that in black... Really I'm clueless. The serial number was N9 so I'm guessing that means 1999? That would make sense considering the overall condition of the bass. It said "Corona California" on the neckplate and "American Traditional" on the headstock. Sorry for the Fender n00b questions!
