    Default Logn Horn Jazz Bass?

    Hi everybody!

    There's somebody who can tell me something about my fender Jazz Bass? It is original? How can I get information about it?
    Thankx for Your help!

    I've not seen a serial number on an American Fender where the "E" is not coupled with a single digit. That serial number does not look right. Japan had serial numbers beginning with an "E" by itself from 1984 - 87, but they had 6 digits after the letter, not 5.

    Welcome to FenderTalk!

    Yeah, the shape of the top horn looks a little off to me too. That might not be an authentic Fender Jazz Bass.

    Fender did make a longhorn jazz bass (aka "boner" bass) however I agree that the serial # looks odd. The space after the E should have a number in the same bold font. The following numbers use a different font. Is it a new purchase? Google "fender jazz headstock" images to see what we mean. The 3 knobs look like they've been changed out too.

    ...and it looks like the knobs may be the old F logo type, hard to tell from the pic.

    Ah, I did not notice that the OP is in Poland. It seems that Fender used a different serial number system on guitars they built for export. I've found a couple others in Europe with serial numbers like this.

    Hello, Thank you all for your help.
    I bought a guitar nine years ago in the US in second-hand shop. It was an offer on eBay.
    I send more photos.

    I sent a question to the Fender Company too. Perhaps I will find out something from them?

    Well, I had not heard of this Longhorn Jazz Bass before! I didn't mean to steer you wrong by implying it was not a Fender.
