    So, thanks to the "Affordable Jazz Bass" thread at offetsguitars.com (yeah, that's it!) I went trolling on Reverb and found thisd beauty- a 1992 MIJ Jazz Bass. The pots are a little hinky, but everything else is just perfect.

    It was shipped all the way from Moscow in a big ol' box, where it was wrapped in layer after layer of bubble wrap. And now, the pix!

    Fun coincidence: I was watching FX's The Americans when the letter carrier rang my doorbell!

    Thanks!

    I don't know anything about it, aside from the year of manufacture and it's an MIJ.

    Interesting, is the whole neck stained or just teh headstock? I have a natural ash/maple w/ blocks MIJ that is one of the basses I will be buried with.

    The entire neck is that color and the fingerboard is a thick slab. Nicely beefy neck for a JB, too.

    Your bass sounds awesome!

    Man that looks INCREDIBLE! I remember seeing those back in the 90's but don't know much about them.

    I just looked up the serial# and got this

    So, looks like the "rare special edition" description was spot-on.
