Best year(s) for MIM Fender P Bass?

  1. Hi, All:

    Sorry if this has been covered. I'm sure it has, but my search fu is weak.

    If I'm looking to pick up a used MIM Fender P Bass, what age/era am I going to find the best instrument? 2012? Mid-'90s? Early 2000s? Were there any years to really stay away from due to poor QC or component issues?

    I ask, because I've got lines on several basses, from widely different years, and they're all roughly the same price, give or take $100.

    Many thanks!
