Not sure if we already had this one? 1965 lefty Jazz Bass.

Will, it kind of reminds me of something - can you fix it? ;)

The craft is pretty good on that one - maybe it was refinished recently too?

👆like why? Sure the routing it for humbuckers but why route the trem and the rhythm circuit? Actually I see it wasn't really jazzmaster but possibly a blank body "routed" to be a jazzmaster. Yikes.

Yes, looks more like woodpecker damage.
