    Man, I've been looking at this bass in musicians friend for a while. I've been curious about it since I haven't really heard anything about it. It sure is a beautiful bass. Is it MIA? I ask because it's 500 dollars, which would be cheap for a MIA, but it comes with a hardshell case, and I don't believe that the mexi Fenders come standard with a hardshell.

    It's a MIM Jazz bass. The hardshell case in not included. A friend of mine called & MF said "It's a typo". Seem weird that they have the same typo in 2 issued of the catalog. Seems like the old "bait & switch" if you ask me.

    That totally sucks. You would suppose that some kind of law would require MF to give you the hardshell case since it's advertised that way. (Kind of how a store has to sell you a product for the price it's listed at)
