Greetings to all - I'm new here so please forgive any faux pas. I'd like to hear from people who have purchased CIJ/MIJ Fender basses (esp. Jazz Basses) directly from an online shop like GuitarJapan - but would also like to hear from those who may've purchased one here in the States. Do they come with hardshell cases? (Can't tell from the GuitarJapan site whether they do or not, or how to order one if they don't); sound quality on a par with U.S. made?; workmanship? (incl. pots, pups, woodwork, etc.); are you/were you happy with your purchase? If so, why? If not, why not? You get the idea... more (even too much) info is better than little or none so feel free to elucidate at length... I'm very interested in getting a lined-fretless J-bass but am balking at the prices I see for U.S.-made. Ok - thanks!
