    Cool. Looks like a modern nut width on the P's too.

    Fender Japan is still making basses?

    Hard to find info these. Seems like they're for the Japanese market and not ours.

    There are obviously Japanese Fenders still made.
    If I got this correctly, the disappearance of Fender Japan means the end of them creating their own models.
  16. Always without the bloody 5 patents small writings ... why I have to buy a USA AVRI to get those writings ? For not to talk about a matching headstock or colours such as Burgundy Mist or Ocean Turquoise ... ah no, this is custom stuff and then ... bang!! ... high dollars!!!
