  1. Shweeeet! the price of my MIJ Fender has gone up because the stock is depleating and they are no longer being made. So if you have got one. HANG ON TO IT!!!
     
  2. Fender have only made the signature models in Japan for some time now.

    MIJs are good quality basses, but I don't see them becoming collector's items.

    If they do, it will be 30 or 40 years from now, and I will most likely be dead before then.

    Of course, I don't buy musical instruments for an investment anyhow.

    The only reason that has ever come into play for me is if I couldn't try the bass first and that if there were a possibility of having to sell it, getting my investment back with minimal loss.

    Nowadays I try to find keepers, because I regret almost every sale I have ever made.
