    Looks like an American standard with an s-1 switch to me. What's giving you doubts?

    Looks like a 2003 American Standard with 2008+ high mass bridge and tuners.

    Looks like a real American Fender Jazz, but I would question the period incorrect (IMO) tuners and bridge.
     
  5. the bridge and tuners are correct for a 2003. That's not the HMV bridge or the Fender/Hipshot tuners

    Looks like my chrome red 2004 with S1 switch. Though mine has a maple neck

    You are right about the bridge. I should have looked closer!:rolleyes:

    I don't recall the tuners looking like that on a 2003, but it has been a while since I owned one.

    It's a real Jazz.
    Not sure if it#s a real fender.
    Does it play well and sound good?

    Looks authentic. The only way that bass would be any better is if it was a Precision Bass.
