    I found a couple of websites selling Japanese Fender items and I may partake in a Precision and Jazz re-issues.
     
  2. Yes I have a 75 RI Jazz and A 70 RI P-Bass and love them both. I will buy more Fender Japan again.

    It is not a Jaco RI, but it is a '62 RI Fretless (Crafted in Japan) that looks just like it!

    Anyone care to give some links where you bought these Japanese Fenders? That 62 RI looks nice!

    For some reason most of the CIJ jazz basses have that ground strap like that...don't know why.

    I got mine at GuitarJapan.com

    I have the Jag Baritone, which now seems to be marketed as VI, with a true Bari on the Fender list now showing up.

    I also have the Fender Marcus Miller Jazz - it is a very fine instrument, as is the Jag. The Japanese made models needed less work after opening the box then did the uS ones.

    My Mustang is Japanesse, well crafted in Japan.
