    What would you prefer: an american precision bass from the 90's or a japanese '82 JV precision?
    I'm considering buying one of those two.

    providing there both in simular cond!
    i'd go with the JV without dout :cool:
  3. Sadly, Japanese Fenders from the 70s and 80s are much better than he later American mades in many cases. I get the impression that wood quality has gone down in many American made Fenders since the 90s.

    I have a JV which needs the frets put back in it but the neck pocket and build quality of the bass is really really good! very resonant too!
