Looks pretty doesn't it? I currently have 9 MIM/CIJ Fender and squiers, also a new 4003, and have owned 10 or 15 more in the past. Some issues I have never had with a brand new bass. + stripped pickup screw ( was loose in case) + Nut slot on E string low enough to buzz with just the thought of playing an open E + A bridge lifted on the back/bass corner big enough to slip a .20 feeler gauge in (which could be causing the horrible sitar sound on the E and A string) + The pickups.. Am I crazy or is it all mid and treble <--- might just be preference I suppose I have however experienced all of these issues in the first 6 hours on my brand new $1500 Fender American Professional Clearly its going back but what gives? Fenders are really that big of a gamble even at that price point?
