I have a questionable Fender foto flame jazz bass that I bought from a guy 8 years ago. I bought it for recording purposes, and never got around to recording so I am looking to sell it. However, the previous owner did some modifications to it. I believe he turned it into a fretless bass and sanded the back of the neck. From what I've been able to find about it online, the MIJ logo and serial number were on the back of the neck just above the body. I can not find a serial number or MIJ logo anywhere on the one I have, so I don't know if it could have been sanded off or if I have a fake. There is a Fender Jaz Bass logo on the headstock and a stamp in the neck pocket that says JB-62DT but nothing else. It came in a Fender hardshell case with EMG pickups and the original pickups. It looks just like this picture I found online: http://www.geocities.com/bassplayers4ever/Models.htmlAnything else I can do to determine if it is a real Fender? Thanks for your help, this is my first post.
No announcement yet.
