    Hey guys. I got this bass from a pawn shop a while back, but I've never really been sure, and always been curious. As you can see, it is labeled Fender, but elsewhere on the headstock it also says Squier. The serial number appeared in the Fender database, but it did not disclose whether or not it was genuine Fender or Squier. It really doesn't matter a lot to me either way, as it plays very well, but I'd like to know. Sorry for the blurry pics, my camera is a piece of junk and this is the best I could do.

    The headstock.

    Fender® PRECISION BASS® Made in Korea, serial number CN330964

    Squier® SERIES

    I think this one is obligatory, right?
    Yes, I did pose for this, and yes, I have great bassface when I'm actually playing :p
    Cheers :D

    It's a '93 Squier P-bass. Squier is owned by Fender (stating the obvious is a hobby of mine), and I have to assume Fender felt that putting their name on the bass would help sell it.

    Thanks for the reply. I just really wasn't sure, I've never seen a Squier with a big-letter Fender before.

    Its a fake, real Fenders don't come with a reverse headstock...
