: : Hi, it's me again... About those fretless Fender Jazz basses i was about to buy... I haven't checked 'em out yet, but I really like to know. Is there any major technical difference between the early basses (like '62) and later one's (up to '82), that I should know of? Neck, body, pickups, elctrics and other stuff? Thanx in demand... Cya
: Howdy...the seventies Jazz basses recieved three screws to attach the neck and the micro tilt adjustment system. Also in 71 the basses got the "bullet" struss rod so they could be adjusted from the headstock instead of the body end of the neck. And if you get an early stacked knob version, look for the factory string mutes on the bridge. Hve fun checking out those basses.......late........john
My "73-J has a 4-bolt and the standard bottom load rod. they didn't start 3 bolting and micro-tilting on the J's till about '75-76 I believeand used them like that till about 87-88 or so.
