    Does anyone know if there is big differences between USA made vintage pups and Japan made vintage pups?

    (beside product country ;-)

    I've found an new Fender P bass 62 RI MIJ (tt sunburst with Turtle Vint Red p guard and Japan vintage p-ups, with Fender deluxe gigbag)
    the price (here in is Sweden/ish kronor 7.500) is about 950 USD/ 870Euro
    (the price for an new USA 62 RI is about 2.400 USD/ 2.100 Euro here in Sweden)

    Does this make sence?
    or is the USA made 62 RI worth more than twice the price?

    Quality-wise the US-made and Japanese-made instruments aren't going to be very different - some will argue that the Japanese are even better.

    You should be able to order directly from Fender Japan (Ishibashi) for less than those prices - including shipping.

    I asked the same question about the pickups when I bought my MIJ 57RI P bass, but I never got an answer. Same as the USA ones or not, they sound pretty damn good.
