Have you ever seen a battery cavity like this?

No it is not a Genuine American Jazz Bass.
Someone was creative with a decal re-branding and changed to name from Squire Affinity to Fender USA.
There are many features that scream Squire or cheaper import bass to me but I am now reluctant to point out the differences to avoid someone else being scammed.

Don't buy it for much money if you haven't already bought the bass.

I don't know of a Squire that has through body stringing but that could've been added to the bass.

Thank you!

Meanwhile I sent these pictures to a luthier, friend of mine.

In seconds, he also pointed me at least dozen reasons proving it's a scam.
