    so im looking at buying a mim fender jazz V bass from the local gc, its got a few mods and i think it might possibly be a new fender neck on a squire body, is there a way i can confirm or deny whether or not its a fender body?
     
  2. Check the angle of the VEE where the control panel meets the PG. A sharp - or more acute point as opposed to a rounded point indicates it's prolly a Squier.

    There's also the screws - but you've gotta be pretty discriminating to see that.

    I also think that Squiers mostly have the truss adjustment in the head and Fenders are mostly in the body at the heel of the neck where there is a notch in the PG to accommodate the wrench. This should NOT be the only decider though.

    Then there's the size of the pot bodies. Larger pot bodies are usually Fender; smaller is usually Squier.
