    Any opinions on them? Also on what a good condition one would be worth? Thanks.

    Saw the 1998 blue book in the music store and played one. Worth $250 +/- retail. Nice bass but medium scale. American made. Made 1990-1994.

    JP-90's are full, 34" scale. They don't sound bad at all...stock USA Fender J-P pickups, very thin neck...quite nice for what they usually sell for ($200-350 range.)

    Because of the 20 frets and the salesman's comments, I assume medium scale. I might be interested if it is 34' scale.

    I used to have one of those. I put EMG's and a Wilkinson bridge on it - and I traded it for a hotrodded Ibanez Roadstar. Stupid, Stupid! The JP90 is a nice bass esp. for the price.

    Dude.. no offense.. But could you please stop searching "fender JP-90" and posting that you have one and that you like it. If someone had a recent question about one, feel free to answer. But please be aware of the ages of these posts. This one is from 2002!
