    This bass is for sale locally, and I'm not sure what model this jazz bass is. It might not be a Fender at all. Any ideas? 00d0d_esmAX7UEtMS_0lM0t2_1200x900~2.jpg

    I second that emotion. A side jack on a three-knob Fender with no control plate and no pickguard suggest that it's one of several thousand Fender clones built overseas. That's not to say it might not be a killer bass. But it ain't a Fender.

    It has a Fender Precision neck on it, so at the very least it's a compatible body. I thought that it could possibly be a Fender Japan offering.

    Hard to tell based on just one low-res photo. The body finish also looks to be non-Fender: not CAR; not Fiesta Red; not Dakota Red. Could potentially be an '80s color called Morocco Red, but I'm pretty sure there wasn't a Jazz issued in the International Series with rear-routing like that. Again, hard to tell from that angle, but the bridge pickup almost appears to be in the '70s position, which – if it's a Fender – narrows the possibilities quite a bit.
