About Jazz Bass prototype;

Before Fender introduced Jazz Bass production model with stack knob configuration in 1960, prototype model was built in 1959 with Jazzmaster like pickups and three knob configuration. Few prototype models were made (possibly 3~7 or so) and this one would possibly be only existing prototype model in 21st century.
