Hey, finally received my P-Bass. MIJ model with American P.U.'s. Enjoy.
I really want a P-bass, with blonde ash white finish, and a purple tortoise scratch plate... Too bad I can only get a MIM in plain white
But that looks great!!!
I played a japenese squire p-bass, and man that was awesome!! Better than a MIM the body curves.. well, it was as hot as me!
Damn I want a P bass. How much more expensive are the MIJ's than the MIM's?
Looks great, I like that color combination. Is it supposed to be a 70's?
It is indeed a 70's reissue. You can check the specs here : http://www.ishibashi.co.jp/webshop/world/guitar/fender-j/bass/pb7070us.htm
The total price, including shipment and VAT, is only 50 EUR (= approx. 50 USD) more than the MIM. But this one has US pickups. And US pickups here, as stand alone, are sold around 150 EUR.
Oh nice bass!!!! Enjoy!!!
Very nice. I love that color combo!!!!! Congrats!!!!
Do you have a link to where you bought this bass from?
Congrats on a fine bass!
Aren't the CIJ's just wonderful?
Yeah, the MIM's are "kid's stuff" compared to the CIJ's!
In fact, I'd honestly say that my CIJ is every bit as good as any MIA I've ever played (and I've owned 8 MIA's including 2 P's, 3 J's, a Strat, & 2 DuoSonics ).
Actually, good (no, great!) MIM's can be found. A good friend of mine has a very nice one (it's what made me want another P), but he tried about 40 before he found it, and I tried every other one in town and could not find one as good (that's why I had to get the CIJ, couldn't afford an MIA).
Here is the whole MIJ basses catalogue :
and this is the page of the model I purchased :
Hope this helps,
That is also what I noticed : my MIJ P is at least as good as any MIA I ever played (except, maybe, an old L-Series I played once a long time ago). The model I have has a thin neck and it's a great player. I went to an audition with it a couple of days ago. I plugged it on the mixing console using my SABDDI, and it sounded awesome.
All the best,
I love that color combo. Very sharp.
great!!! P basses rule!!
how much does it cost to get a bass from that site?
how long does it take?
Very nice bass..how do you figure what the bass cost on that site..do they have something that shows us currency.
hmmm... does anyone know how different the '57 neck is from the '62? i don't want anything TOO wide but i really like the maple fingerboard.
The whole bass, including price of the instrument + shipment + VAT + custom fees, cost me around 700 EUR (= approx. 700 USD).
For those who want a currency converter :
All the best,
Last month I got the '62 Reissue Precision (their top model with the Alder body and USA pickup) and my TOTAL price paid in US$ came to $582. It also arrived at my door within a week of ordering it.
Keep in mind that it only comes with a cheap gig bag (a hardshell case costs extra).
with my Spalt/Totem Modine, i've fell in love with the P sound all over again.
mine has a Seymour Duncan antiquity.
i can't say enough good things about that PUP!!!
the thing spanks!
congrats on the Fender, looks GREAT!!!!!
