    Nope - not new Jazz bass day, but new Japanese bass day x 2

    Actually new bass weekend -

    Got this early 90's Fernandes Japan P body and neck, ordered a GFS P bass pup (needed one quickly and cheaply, sounds pretty good). Got the pup on Friday at 4:30 PM, threw it in, strung it up with some LaBellas and gigged it for 3 hours Friday night.

    Saturday morning was met with a package from FedEx with a GORGEOUS 1977 Greco Mercury P bass (Fuji Gen) with an incredible Lindy Fralin slightly overwound pup that was already wearing a new set of LaBellas. This bad boy got gigged 4 hours on Saturday night.

    I don't normally do these new bass threads, but I am just blown away by these 2 quality instruments. I have owned several Fender P basses, MIA MIJ, MIM, MIK, and this Greco is absolutely the best P bass and maybe the best bass I have ever played. I just hope I don't get a wild hair and sell it off, cuz I know I'll regret it. Oh, and this Fernandes is really pretty darned nice too, anybody know anything about them? I read some of them might have been made in the Fuji Gen too, but I can't find any info on serials or how to tell a year, but the serial sticker and neckplate clearly say "Made in Japan"

    Sorry my iPhone pictures stink, but "no pic, no bass"

    Me too, and the classifieds have been just crawling with them. It's all I can do not to spend money every day.
