    It could be a Jazz with a Precision neck.

    And don't forget, 1978 is pre-CBS!';):p

    I barely know enough about Fender to tell the difference between a P and a J. But that doesn't look like a P to me.
  7. I thought the trendy thing was a Jazz neck on a P-Bass. Lets hope you are right or the winner is a moron. :D

    Maybe it's a "rare custom shop model originally made for Jaco"??


    a "worst(best) of both worlds bass, hand made by famous builder, Tim, the tool man, Taylor."

    Somewhere out there is a P-bass body with a Jazz neck--I hope!
  9. I wish sometime that poeple would know something about the product that they are selling. Hopefully no one will by the bass thinking it is something valueable.

    Well he did add that it might be a jass bass. :D

    Looks like a FrankenFender, who knows what years and countries all the parts came from.

    It looks to me like a Jazz body (two jazz pups, the pickguard an controls) with a Precision neck....

    That is a strange bass. It looks like someone has started to inbreed Fenders.

    We can all agree that it is a fender jacision, or a precazz.

    "The bass seems to be all original"

    Interesting, but the buyer has a zero feedback rating, so I wouldn't go near it.

    Too many good legit deals on eBay to take a chance with an unknown quantity like that...
