    Im pretty sure they did. Fender has had lots of diffrent runs over the years. I could be wrong on this but I think its the real deal.

    It's either one of 2 basses. A MIA/MIM mix called the California Series P bass. I remember this bass when I worked @ sam Ash. They discontinued it due to legal problems about the parts being made in the USA & it being finished in Mexico & then being assembled in the USA. I looked @ the headstock, but the picture was to small for me to see if it said "Made in USA"

    Now it's totally MIM & it's called the P-Bass Deluxe (not to be confused with the MIA P-Bass Deluxe). It's the SAME EXACT BASS except it say's "Made in Mexico".

    BTW, It's a really great bass!!!!!
     
  5. i spoke with the dude about it and said it was an american jazz neck.
    I spoke with a friend who works at one of the better music stores around here. He said that fender made them for a couple (2) of years then discontinued due to the lack of popularity.
    He also mentioned that fender has been know to mix necks around by mistake.
     
  6. Nino is right, I think. They made the bodies and necks in the USA and sent them down south of the border to be finished.

  9. not a Ween fan... A Ween FREAK!!!!

    I got to meet the guys 2 years ago. A good friend of mine grew up with Aron, aka Gene.
    They are the coolest guys you could ever meet. Even got to go to the Pod. It's falling down now and people are still living in it.
    I'll be going to New Hope (that's where their from for all the non ween fans) in August.
    I definetly understand their vibe more since visiting New Hope.
    Anyways....gotta get back to work :(
