    So, I just got a really sweet new frankenbass, courtesy of a friend/mentor. I've been playing a truly terrible Dean Edge 4, and finally got rid of it to get this one. It's great to have a decent 4 string again. It's a Jazz body, with a Warmoth neck, Badass II bridge, Dimarzio pickups, and Schaller tuners. It plays excellently and sounds even better. Didn't think I'd ever get a Fender, but hey, I've got an open mind. Here's the question: Does anyone have any idea what the body is? (i.e. MIM, etc.) It was put together from various pieces, so I really don't know! :confused: Thanks!

    If you take off the neck, there might be some information in the neck pocket. Maybe.
  3. If both pickups are the exact same size, it's an older MIM jazz body. If the bridge pup is a little wider (going from the E to the G string) it could be anything. I don't think anyone could tell from that picture alone.
