    My Pop has a 92-93 MIJ Foto Flame 50's reissue strat in blueburst.

    Did Fender Japan make a matching P Bass?

    If you mean a blueburst foto flame bass, yes they did. In fact there was a point in the early nineties when all of Fender Japan's output had a foto flame finish.

    A friend has a rather nice precision Lyte in blueburst, though really the Lyte's were only Precisions in name only being quite different to any other P's.

    Yup, I remember seeing those cool looking photo flame P and J basses back in the early 90's.
     
  5. I have a 90's Fotoflame P, but it's a sunburst. Beautiful bass, great player too.

    I don't know if this is true, but I know they made some wacky finished basses in those days.

    Take a look at my '94 japanese jazz.

    Awesome basses btw...

    See, that's actually a Fender I'd be proud to own!

    Why can't Fender make finishes like that or use figured wood tops? They would probably do a LOT more business that way, especially given the more modern appearence people seem to be striving for in basses.
