    I just bought a Korean made Fender JAzz w/ hipshot heads, Bassline pups, 3 band Eq active. Anyone know much about these? Sound really nice. $700

    Would that be the Jazz 24?

    I do believe the Jazz 24 is Korean made . By the way, my Fender F-48 resonator guitar and Squier II Strat are Korean made, so yes Fender does do buisness in Korea for manufacturing some of it's instruments.

    I've only seen Squier Jazz basses from Korea, and for Squiers they're damn fine.

    Sounds just like my J-24. Hipshot Liscensed tuners, SD pups and SD 3 band EQ with slap switch. If is is the J-24 that you have, I've had mine for about a year now. What would you like to know about it?

    I have a Korean made Squier Jazz. It craps on MIM Fenders with fury!

    Cor-Tek makes staggering amounts of Fender instruments (some of which are excellent) in Korea, though not very many basses. The Jazz 24 is one, as others have mentioned.

    Personally, I'd like to see Cor-Tek do more of Fender's better basses and fewer from Ensenada. :spit:
