    I’ve come to learn that there are some details about these models that make them not-so-accurate reissues of a 75 Jazz. Me personally, I cannot stand the late 70s logo on the headstock given that 75s had the big TV logo. That’s at least what I’ve observed, anyway.

    That’s not a deal breaker though. The traditional pickup spacing on what should be a 70s style Jazz would be a deal breaker for me. These models seem to be notorious for missing this large detail that many associated with Jazz Basses from that era.

    My question to you: what the heck is the story with mine then? My JB-75 has the correct 70s pickup spacing, but everything else seems to be consistent with the others I’ve seen online. Just trying to understand my instrument’s history, so if anyone can I help it would be appreciated!

    It’s a bass. Originally designed by Leo Fender and released in 1960.

    I think you are on the wrong website, brother.

    From what I remember, some of of the JB-75's do have 70's spacing and some have 60's. So...you have one that does. ;)

    Well there we go! Guess that makes sense. I'm surprised I've only seen the 60s spacing so far.
