  1. This would be the JV, SQ, E and I believe A serial numbers ending in the early 90's??

    Mine ships on monday. I can't wait for it to arrive :hyper: I had an SQ numbered P bass YEARS ago and have missed it ever since. The one I have on the way is a JV numbered P bass. IMHO the basses from this era outdid Fender USA.

    Postem if you gottem!!

    My pics ASAP!! :bassist:

    Sweet pair. The P is screaming for a Tort pg, also!!!!
     
  4. I actually love the white ontop of that cream. Either way those are both very clean and nice.

    Thanks guy's. I did want to try a tort on the P but, the P happens to be a 32" scale and the body is slightly smaller than a standard P. Never got around to getting a custom one made.

    Here's a MIJ Squire Bullet bass I used to have. This is the full scale model, it was also available in a short scale version. The next year after mine, they sold the exact same bass as a "Fender" bullet bass.

    It was a very nice bass, but as I already had a P, it was redundant. I sold it to fund a set of Darkstars.

  10. I always wanted a full scale Bullet Bass. It would make a cool Darkstar project as well.

    how much does a bullet bass go for?
     
  12. They're no longer in the Squier or Fender line so whatever the secondary market will bare. I've seen nice ones go in the $300 range.

    It's been modded quite a bit over the year but still a great bass

    Were Squier II's made in Japan or Korea?

    Squier II's were Korea...doesn't fit the thread maybe, but still a rarer animal than most are used to seeing

    Theres a black Squier II on the Bay right now.
     
  19. My JV numbered Precision arrived today. It's truly an amazing bass. Great neck, great tone, perfect balance, not too heavy. At first the narrow frets seemed different but after a few minutes I never gave them any further thought. Photos in the am :)
