    I've read that the Geddy Lee jazz bass is made in Japan, it that still true?

    and what other fender bass models are made there?

    thanks

    It's not just mad in Japan, it's freakin pissed.

    Anyway, yeah, it is MIJ, and it's great. I've heard nothing but good things about the Japanese Fenders.

    When I bought mine I also looked at a MIA s-1 and played them back to back.
    I bought the Geddy for it's sound and it's neck.
    I very happy with it.

    Japan is also the birthplace of the rare pro-quality medium scale Jazz Bass Special!:D

    I've got 3 of them but the only place I've seen them is in Japan and it took a couple years to find them.
    Hard to tell from that picture but my avatar shows the one we're keeping.
