I'm the original owner of a 2015 Jazz bass, S/N = US15036380. What are the stock pickups that it came with? Custom Shop 60s? Vintage? How can I find out?

The serial, fed to the Fender product registration serial number search brings up an American Standard Jazz bass in 3TSB.

I've been under the impression that the AmStd Jazz Bass® has had CS 60's pickups since the 2012 revision, but
a) I'm not a bass player, so whaddoIknow, and
b) that's not what the service diagram says for the 2012 AmStdJazz; it's "VINT JACO" in the March 9th 019-370A_SISD Of course, could be same pickups under different name.

Yes, American Standard. I too convinced myself that they're CS 60s--I think I read it somewhere a while back. Interesting you point out the 2012 spec sheet reference to "Vintage Jaco." Never heard that name until I saw the spec.

Perhaps some Fender staff will (hopefully) chime in.

Seems I was right about the 'same pickups, different name'...
A quote from talkbass.com:
Quote:
(...)2012 when Fender started using the 55198/9 set referred to as 60's CS, or on some Fender spec sheets as Vint Jaco set(...)


On Fender staff chiming in, that's a slim chance these days.
If you need further info, contact them direct; there's a form on the support pages, and the chat there has been totally fantastic every time I've used it.

You're very welcome, glad if I was any help.
Re the Fender consumer relations; usually for an instrument of that age they can send the original model specs belonging to the serial number, but not much more on an individual instrument (outside the Custom Shop ones).

Play on, play LOUD.
