    In the headstock picture, with the "Made in....", the country's name is definitely too long to say "Made in U.S.A.". It looks like it's MIM.

    Serial number starts with M. MIM for sure. Also check out the tone and volume knobs. Not a fake, just an idiot.

    Wow. If you're going to sell something as if it's U.S.-made, you probably shouldn't show everyone a headstock that says "Made in Mexico."
     
  10. i'm not sure but aren't all the MIA fenders string through? in which case this bass is not.

    it clearly says MZ, and on the fender site it says that MZ is Made in mexico.

    so...the only logical conclusion that it is DEFINATLY a American P-bass, we should all big on it!!




    by the way, that was sarcasm :D (if i didnt write that people would flame me.....)
