Went to the music shop today and saw what appeared to be a 76 Fender. It had the tick black Jazz logo, a 76+5 digit serial number, made in USA, white binding and block inlays on a maple board, etc. It also had the 3 bolt neck plate - however, on the plate was written "Fender Japan" which got me wondering. The neck seems to be an authentic 76 Jazz neck, but the body is likely from some reissue or possibly a standard Japanese 80's model (I'll be looking that up right now)? It's a natural body with white pickguard, by the way. Pickups seem old, pickup cover is very used up. Bridge volume knob is loose. However, a very playable bass. I didn't get to plug it in or get more info, but I will sometime soon. My questions: As above, could the body and neck be from different places? Do 80's Japanese Jazz basses have the 3 bolt neck plate (and I don't mean on their reissues)? How much should it go for, being a mix of basses or whatnot? If it's cheap (say under 600 CDN) I may want to look it up. Would make a nice project bass, I could drop some new pickups or something. Thanks.
