A guy I know has offered to get me another bass. We discussed £££ and he said he could possibly get me a MIA J. How can I tell whether or not it really is what it says on the headstock? You hear so many stories of so-called Fenders being made up of parts from other instruments that may or may not be of Fender origin. I don't want to part with my hard earned only to find I've been ripped off. Is there any way to be really sure that the bass is as originally manufactured, and that if it says 'Made in USA' on the headstock, that's exactly what it is? Thanks guys. Rockin John.
