    This (now vintage) Fuji-gen Fender JBV-100 features a Sen Ash body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. It is all stock and extremely clean with very little fret wear. The only damage is located near the rear control cavity where the finish is worn to the bare wood. US-electronics are active with a Master Volume, Pan and 2-band EQ. The brass nut is standard.

    It is my understanding that this model was the inspiration behind the the Fender American "Plus" series that came out in the 90's. My favorite features of this bass are the clean looks, matching headstock and the sound.

    This bass is so cool. The quality of the Japanese Fenders is nothing short of amazing. I prefer the Japanese over the American and Mexican made guitars and basses.
    I think the price is fair. I'd love to pick this up, but I suffer from lack of funds. Free bump!

    So the body is a little downsized, am I right? What is the string spacing and width @ nut?

    Not really. It feels like standard J dimensions to me. I don't think Fender Japan did a downsized body shape until they started making the Precision Lyte model.

    Anyhoo, I've added pics of the spacing at the nut and bridge. image. image. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for your interest.
