    I don't know if I put this in the right forum, because I don't know what it means.

    What does M|M mean? Does it mean a bass with two MusicMan pickups?

    What does M|J mean? Does it mean a bass with one MM and one J pickup?

  10. There is another description that I coined and has found *some* use in dicussing basses...

    MIJITSO

    The acronym standing for Made In Japan In The Style Of

    Used in the discussion of the "'62" Jazz reissues that came out of Japan from the late 80's to the late 90's. Though these basses had correct neck profiles, grounding strap, and knobs, the rest of the hardware wasn't correct for the year. Bill Bolton pointed out that these basses were more "in the style of" a '62 Jazz rather than true replicas. Hence my name.
