    Hello TB World,
    I came across this video of the magnificent gospel bass player Sharay Reed and saw he was jammin' on this beautiful 5 String Fender Jazz Model (Or at least i think it's fender) but any clue of what model it is and year if possible?


    BTW, the part where he plays on the bass starts at 2:54!

    Just looks like a 5 string jazz with a terrible pickguard to me

    It appears to be an MIA Deluxe Active Jazz V in CAR. Not sure exactly which year Fender switched over from the 5 in-line tuner arrangement to 4+1 on this particular model. My ‘98 MIA Jazz V is 5 in-line.
