I just ordered a '75 reissue jazz from Ishibashi, Japan. Koichi at their web-shop was really helpfull - I've done business with him before (a nice '62 reissue fretless jazz). The hard thing: How do I explain this to my wife? Why do I need bass # 3..? To you guys and gals in Europe that have to pay a small fortune for American Fenders - check out the nice japanese Fenders offered by Ishibashi. The instruments are very nice and the service at Ishibashi is great. Cheers!
