Would you say this is a MIJ or MIM body?

    Just trying to figure out if this is a MIJ or MIM body. Not sure if there is a way to tell at all without the neck's serial number.

    See if he has a picture of the front with the pickguard off. If there is a big route between the control cavity and the bridge PU, I would say it is a MIM. I know the standard MIM have this, although the 60's Classic Jazz which is also MIM does not (don't know about the MIM Active Jazz).

    My guess is MIM. If you really want to know, you can ask the seller for a picture of the routing under the pickguard. Also, to my eyes, the two pickups look to be the same size which would suggest the earlier MIM poplar models--but I can't be too sure about that from the pictures.
