    Quality can vary in both. Id say it would be down to the specific instrument.

    Any info on Korean jazz basses specifically?
     
  4. My main bass is a Fernandes jazz, MIK. I love it--it's got a very old-school tone to it, and is nigh unbreakable, which I appreciate. Also a great platform for modification. It's from 1998, though--I don't know if the current ones differ in quality.

    How do MIK Fernandes necks compare to MIM Jazz necks? Anyone know anything about the rjb MIK series? I think it's the lower end Fernandes Jazz series... Someone help me out here I can't find anything on import fernandes basses anywhere.

    I also found this one which I believe is also MIK. Here are some pictures. Anyone know anything about it? My hunger for a cheap but legitimate jazz is insatiable.

    If your going to get a fernandes, take it from someone who owned(owns) alot of them. Buy a made in japan over the korea ones. It really is night and day

    I thought that was the bass, with only 8 frets. ODd photo placement in that post.

    I have the same red one (103xxx) made in China. This is one serious Jbass.
