Bought it second hand, absolute bargain, people really are starting ot find out that those MIJ fenders they turned away as second class basses are actually on a par and often friendlier to play, if not better materials than usa counterparts, this is a MIJ p-bass, but with a flamed top, gorgeous, good player, and most importantly of all, it's not just another boring fender precision.
