Hello. I started playing bass about 6 months ago after playing guitar on and off for years. I bought a used 5 string Schecter that I am fond of, but really wished I had started with a 4 string. So, I have been watching my local Guitar Center for months looking for a used Fender P Bass. After not finding anything, I decided to take a leap of faith and buy one online from a different GC.
I called around looking for something in very good condition and found one this past week, it should be delivered on Tuesday
From the pics and the add, it is a dark blue (they called it Royal Blue but said it wasn't a metallic type finish) MIM Fender P-bass with a rosewood neck and a black pick guard.
After doing some looking online, I don't see a whole lot of dark blue Fenders (or black pick guards) and am hoping it isn't some random P-bass style body with a Fender neck bolted on. Is there anyway to tell if it is a genuine Fender (i.e. not a Squire, or some other clone)? BTW, I am in no way trying to knock clones, but for the price I paid it better be real!
Thanks in advanced for any advice.
