    I saw a black 62 reissue selling for $999 and a black American Standard for $599. I wanted to buy the standard one but it has an Extreme Games painted on it and it looked strange. Why did Fender let this happen? How much better is the reissue than the standard?

    The reissue isn't "better" per se. It's different. I love the American Standards, so that's what I would go for. Price doesn't matter, playability does for me.

    And you ask why did fender let this happen? Are you talking about the painting or pricing?

    Yes, the painting which looks strange on a bass. Was Fender paid to have this done or did some players ask for it?
