confused about fender

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by calebplaysbass, Jun 3, 2005.


  1. i just yesterday bought a new fender bass at guitar center. i can't remember what the tag said about what model it was all i know is i bought it for $700 and the back of the headstock says "made in korea". there are many things about this bass which confuse me. first and most obvious is the flamed maple top which is only put on american made deluxe jazz basses according to fender's website. second is the 24 fret neck which i have been able to find nothing about on fender's website. third is the duncan pickups and hipshot tuners which came stock. and last is the six-bolt neck. i am now very confused about the bass i bought and would like to know what it is. i don't know if all of this stuff i odd or if most fender basses are like this but according to the website they don't so i wanna know if i got ripped off or got an amazing deal.

    Hah, you're one of the first to own these new basses, I'm thinking.

    Congrats :D
