Yesterday I took my fender P Bass reissue 70's crafted in japan to a luthier to adjust it. in this way we take advantage of the instance to verify its legitimacy. finally we were doubtful since there were things that coincided and others that did not. I will start with the one that seemed strangest to him. one of the jobs was to change the soul screw, since the current one was quite damaged, so the idea was to change it for an original fender screw that I bought on ebay. When testing the new screw, we realized that it was of a larger diameter and did not fit into the hole in the arm. the electronics looked fine, but the serial numbers looked weird where they were located, the number on the body was under the pickups. The previous owner told me that he changed the bridge and the capacitor of the electronics. guitar tech also told me that under the tuner machines it should say japan 1, 2, 3 or 4 depending on the tuner, which it didn't have either. I told him that the bass was crafted in japan and not made in japan, so there is a possibility that he was not correct since he had only reviewed Made in japan basses. according to the serial number my bass must have been made between 1997-2000. I ask the most knowledgeable for help. I leave you some photos.
