I recently found an 80's fender p bass for sale for let's just say under $200 but more than $150. It is at a small guitar shop, and the owner says that during the 80's is when fender started several different series of basses, including Fender Squire, Fender Standard, etc...he said that it isn't a Squire, it is a Fender, just the squire series. It is made in Korea and like I said the 80's. Does anyone no anything about the build quality, etc...about these guitars. Is there really any difference between a Fender "squire series" and a Squire By Fender. I wasn't around in the 80's to try these things out, so any one's experience or knowledge of these basses would be very helpful.
