What year is my Jazz bass?

I just bought a used Fender American Standard Jazz bass and was wondering if anybody knows how to tell what year it was made by the serial number, which is ZO157165. I'm thinking it's probably not more than a few years old, it has the Schaller strap locks and the tuners with the 'F' on them. Thanks, Roland.

It's a 2000 model. The Fender serial # system works as follows from the Seventies on (if I remember correctly)

 

S = 70's

E = 80's

N = 90's

Z = 2000's

 

Formula = Letter + first number after the letter or ZO157165 is 2000. N8.... = 1998 and so on.
