i went to GC yesterday, and i discovered an old p bass with the straight pickup in the used section. the tag said it was a '51 fender MIJ p bass, but i dont trust it. everything about it looked brand new, there were no marks anywhere on it, except the black pickguard. the bridge was really tiny, it was string through, and the pickup looked too small for the hole it was in, maybe it was modded? the body was a yellow, but you could see the wood grain through the finish. everything about it felt and played well, and it sounded great with the tone knob all the way up. as i rolled off the tone knob, the sound seemed to fall apart though. the price was $450, and i forgot to get the serial #. can anyone verify if this is real? i didnt know there were any fender basses that old, let alone any MIJ fender basses that old.
