I will never forget the face of a friend of mine (well known bass player in my region for funk. He is really a God in slapping; owns the most expensive as Sandberg etc.). He checked some of my Fenders and as last my blue baby: James Johnston with matching headstock. When playing (plugged to my MARKBASS combo) he couldn't stop smiling, told me that's the best bass guitar he ever had in his hands! He was sure that's a Fender American Vintage 64 Jazz Bass, Lake Placid Blue for more than 2.000,- € ... (I didn't show him the lable) ... so he was that much surprised afterwards to have played a 400,- € Squier Artist Model From that time on he had a completely different mind!
