My first bass was a squier jazzbass jv series. Later i bought more upmarket instruments and sold the squier.Now 15 years later i realize what a stupid thing i did, because these first squers where really very underpriced.the only fender jazz i ever came across that was of a better quality was a 63 one.At the moment i am looking to find one,no luck till now, but now i came across a 86 one. Can anyone tell me something about that bass. it is not a jv but it is still japan. I remember friends having one and they sounded ok.
