    hey everyone.

    i have just spent a ton of time doing searches and just cant find it.

    i just picked up a 1985 fender MIJ jazz special. white, pretty much like duffs, extremely yellowish, and i am just wondering what kind of finish they used on it. nitro?, or was it painted aged white.

    in the end it doesnt matter. this bass is 100% original and the tone is awesome. but i was just curious.

    thanks in advance.
