I've noticed places like Chicago Music Exchange and other dealers get some Fender Japan basses from time to time. It isn't consistent, and it almost feels like Fender Japan must go through stages of doing runs of a certain kind or series of bass and then they lay off. I really like the alternate color ways they were putting out for the left handed models (as I am a lefty) and was hoping to snag one sometime. Anyone know how that stuff works? They seem like such a great middle ground between the Player Series and the American line but you get some uniqueness since it's a Japan model. I tried to find some Fender timeline that tracked releases of guitars and stuff to see if I could deduce this myself, but I didn't have any luck. I'd love to score a MIJ P.
