Is this for real?

  1. It's a copy made in Japan by Fernandes, who for a while built better Fenders than Fender did. It's probably a wonderful bass, but of course is not the read deal, so will be much more affordable than a real one. As a workhorse axe, it's likely as good as anything out there, IMO.

    I know that Fernades has been sued many times for copyright issues, so I don't doubt that it is for real. I know for a fact that Fender sued them over a exact copy of the stratocaster. I think Fernades had to stop production and everything.
