    Hi All,

    Anyone one have any experience or thoughts on a MIJ Fender JB-HO fs3? What does fs3 mean?

    I'm in Tokyo for 8 days and went down to Ochanomizu - Meidai Dori aka Guitar street and ran across one of these beauties.

    It's selling for 90K yen which is a little over $900 US. it wasn't as light as I thought it would be for a hollow body bass. It's played well and looked beautiful. I don't read Japanese but it said Fender factory outlet. Is there really a fender outlet or is that suppose to be outlet price? I found a few on eBay for $1299.

    Should I pull the trigger or is there any other rare or unique basses I should look at while I'm out here?

    Is it insulting if I try to talk them down? I'm going to at least try to get a hard case out of them. C'mon GC will and throw in a pair of cheap strings! :D
