I bought a new MIM J (love it by the way). It was left handed and I heard Fender hasn't made them lefty for a few years. It's not previously owned though I could tell it was older. A few scratches from being tried out by people with belt buckles . The serial number is 8000317. Trying to figure out what year. But anyways it plays great. Beautiful neck. Great sound. Great for slapping aswell which is a fun bonus.
