Sketchy P-Bass?

Hi, I recently bought a used Fender P-Bass from a guy I've known for several years now, and let's say I "trust" him. The thing is, the bass looks kind of strange to me... Something doesn't feel right, even though I got it with its original hard shell case. The "serial number" text looks strange as well. I will post the pictures for you:

*They were taken right now with my iPhone, but if you want I can take some more pictures of the finish and other details tomorrow in the morning.

The Fender decal seems far too close to the edge of the headstock. The F has been close to the edge some years, but not that close, not that I've seen.

i looked up the serial number. it says a fender instrument was build in corona, usa in 1998/9 with that serial number, but thats as much as i can offer
EDIT: the fender site says n8 + 6 digits are 1998/9 builds too
