I recently just picked up a '97-'98 Fender Precision Bass Special. It is the made in USA California Series model. I can't seem to find a whole lot of information on these but it was cheap and still made in USA. I think it plays and sounds just as good as the American series ones that are super over priced in my opinion. Anybody know anything about them? I did find that they were painted and finished in Mexico but all the parts and assembly were done in Corona, California.
