1994 Japanese Fender Jazz Bass? It doesn't look like any fender I have seen before.
Looks more like a 70s Japanese knock off. Could be an Ibanez Cimar

Hhmmmm.... The pickup configuration looks odd for a jazz, and the truss rod cover and 'extra' screw on the neck, along with odd decals.... Doesn't add up in my book.

Delete the extra screw comment, my vision is the odd thing there.

That Candy Apple Red Made in Japan Fender P has just been offered to watchers for $1000-00, maple neck too and looks mint. The MIJ Jazz has been offered for $900-00. Great deals both I reckon and sooooo tempting. I would press the button on the P except yesterday I just ordered the last Bergantino NV115 cab from Bass Gear Direct in Sydney so that should cure the GAS for a little while, should sound great with the new Fender tube heads too :mrgreen:
Also trying to apply logic to the temptation that since I already own a vintage USA Jazz and P I don't need another but the price is good and that red with maple is droolworthy.
This is what happens when your drummer has stitches in his leg from a motorbike accident I suppose, no playing fix other than a little studio work, so trawl the net looking for new gear that you don't currently have any opportunity to use. :?

I have to agree, that red P is gorgeous.... If the MIJ Jazz was that colour I would have no choice but to buy it

Noooo........ :lol:

actually I'm seriously thinking about pulling the trigger on one of these,cant seem to get a PJ fender round here.Getting a loaded body means I can use the neck from my MIM Jazz which has a stuffed body,could be a win.I know its eBay,

Or something like one of these,
