    ok, what's the difference between the 2000 model hot-rodded p-bass(american standard), and the 2001 series. the specs are exactly the same. i just don't know which one i got. any help would be great.

    Well, I think the 2001 model has a slightly faster (thinner) neck. I think that's about the only diff.
     
  3. try going to a fender site that has forums and post the serial # and see what they say

  6. Hi ryanm....

    Have you been able to date your bass yet? Serial No's are not necessarily a good dating tool. If you're up to the task, unbolt the neck and check under the base....

    well, i went to a fender forum and they dated it a 99. so, i guess i'll live with that. thanks all.
     
  8. Xavier got wood! hehehe
     
  9. nothing wrong with a 99, i have a 2000 and its like yours, i think the change came late 2000.
    played a 2001 at GC and i couldn't feel any diference. but then again i don't play my jazz a ton.
    felt the same to me.
