  1. I've noticed some talk about the quality between MIJ and MIA. Some are favoring the quality coming out of Japan lately.
    Just wanted to know your thoughts on the subject.

    I have a Japanese Precision and an American Jazz.
    They are both excellent instruments.
    I'd say that the quality of my Japanese Precision is as high as any Fender I've ever played, though it costs about half what I would have paid for the equivalent American model.
    I think that you will find gems and lemons from every region and time period.

    True, this comes up quite often. A search will yield lots of opinions. ;)
