For those who play bass, there is every chance they will have used a Fender bass at some point. Whether it is a Precision (P-Bass) or Jazz Bass (J-Bass) Fender has become part of Rock’s furniture. Similar to the Fender Telecaster and Stratocaster, the Fender P and Jazz Bass are an institution. My Collection has a few. See below for some examples.
For example here a Fender Precision Bass, 1997 Made in Japan. The Fender bolt on guitars and Basses were very popular in the 50s, 60s and 70s and in order to stem the competition from copies, Fender started production of the most common models like the P bass in Japan. Initially called JV guitars, the later models were made as made in Japan. Typically these models were excellent quality and good value for money.
