    I have a "Frankenstein" bass built from different components, including a early 70s (was told it was '72 or '74) ash Fender Jazz bass. Obviously re-finished (and poorly at that), it is from three unmatched pieces of ash:
    - top piece down to the bottom of pickups
    - second piece about 1.5"
    - bottom piece

    I assume this originally was a painted body, now has all holes crudely filled, and a clear finish on top. Looks like a piece of !@#$, and heavy as heck, but sounds fantastic.

    Anybody have any information on when Fender did this? Thanks.
