heres my question, i own a 87 japanese fender p bass special,(both P&J pick-ups)and to me it seems to be of better quality and sound and craftsman-ship than my mex j/bass,and in my opinion any other mex fender i have ever come across,and i mite add SOME of the U.S. made fenders,heres my question am i alone in this opinion? is my fender an odd ball,or just one of the good years for fender japan? i've played many new fender japans=g/lee model and the sting p-bass and they were also very high quality,the quality of the wood and finish and sound seems to be VERY superior to the mex, am i correct? i know my opinion of my bass only matters to me but am i imagining this big difference,if i am correct why are'nt they more valuable than what they are, i paid 300.00 for it and put 150.00 into it and it plays as well as ANY fender,new,old,mex ,japan or u.s models. can i get some feed-back?
