hi! regarding to this thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=210158 i checked out the bass today and didnt feel to any other fender i played. it is supposed to be a custom shop, cause i never heard of anything like it (expet those A/E with piezo). so i suspect its a fake. the serial number is E 932325 and it says made in japan. i checked the serial numbers and says its an 87' , but i though those basses were made in the 90`s. how can i check if it is real??? thancks for any input!
