    Fender didn't start making basses in Japan until 1981, so that date may be wrong.
    Either way, it's worth more than $250 if it really is a made in Japan Fender and is in playable condition.

    Yep! M5Yates is right. There were no Fenders being made in Japan in the 70's. There were however lots of Fender copies being made in Japan and other asian countries of varying degrees of quality. That said, some of these Fender clones with brands such as Tokia, Greco, and even Ibanez can be very, very good. For 250 bucks you may get yourself one sweet J-Bass copy that is worth every penny and maybe a bit more.
