    I just picked up a great parts bass, but I do not need the body. I have been told this could possibly be an 80's Japan P body, but I have no idea if it is or isn't. Beautiful vintage white color with some dings here and there. Weight is 5lbs 3oz.

    $140 shipped CONUS

    I have a bridge that I'll put on it to sweeten the deal! This has a very nice faded Oly White color.

    I don't know. It doesn't appear to be basswood based on that grain, but I am unsure.

    If the neck plate (if you still have it) looks like this............then it is an early MIJ Fender.

    It came as a parts bass with a 1969 Fender plate

    I can't say what your P Bass body is or is not.................but I have seen several MIJ bass neck pockets and they've looked like this.............(I think that P B stands for Placid Blue.)

    Yours is an exciting looking body with excellent light relic..............it is tempting me greatly!

  11. No! It stands for P Bass. All MIJ bodies and necks are marked PB or PJ and a model number. Sometimes the stamp is quit small so look closely! The 562 will relate to year or factory. This body in presented here is NOT a MIJ fender. Sorry it-s value is limited if your unable to define the maker! We are fortunate that Fender Japan including Fugi Gen, always stamp the main parts. Makes it harder for forgers to con people. The Fender site for Japan is extremely interesting and educational. Having been cheated once all I can say is. If you need a bass body cheap. New bodies on Ebay are around $70 or 60 Euros. Dont pay more unless stamping is clear. Good Luck!
