Did my own investigation more thorough.

Apparently, this model's name may be JB65B-95US.

Here's a screenshot from the 2006/2007 Fender Japan Catalog:

I would be very thankful if actual owners will verify my clue ;)

Yeah vates, I believe that is what model mine is... I have no idea where the tags are if I even have 'em, but I did buy the bass in Dec.'07...

And I believe that's when they offered up this P I bought around that time...

Dunno about these however I can tell you there is an absolutely sweet Fender branded MIJ parts jazz at my LMS - 80's MIJ maple/RW Precision neck with that wonderfully fast thin front-to-back profile and black worn MIJ jazz body, tort guard, passive single coils with typical annoying 60c hum etc. I think they want 400 for it. This thing kills - Ahh to be made of money [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]
