Hello Talkbass, I'm currently in the market for a P bass. At this point in my career I am somewhat dissalusioned with Fender's production products as I continuously find eyebrow-raising flaws in their instruments. From my online searching I came across the Fender Masterbuilt series. Specifically the basses built by John Cruz: Fender Custom Shop 1957 Precision Bass Relic Masterbuilt by John Cruz Needless to say I'm not getting ready to drop $8 Large, but has anyone played a Fender Masterbuilt? Can you please elaborate on the experience? When and how are these basses built? Which Fender luthiers would you choose if you did decide to purchase a Masterbuilt?
