    I probably want to buy a Fender MIJ special from 1990. Anybody familiar with the kind of wood, hardware, playability etc?
  2. I had one once (black headstock, P/J )

    wood was OK, basically identical to US models of the period, but not the exceptionally good neck woods you see on a lot of other Japanese fenders.

    hardware was fine, pickups were fine... it had rubber knobs i didn't like much (the plastic "F" inserts in the top kept faling out)

    overall it played and sounded excellent, no complaints with my specimen
