I can't even tell if you're being serious. Maybe if you read the next 8 words of my sentence you would know.

Yep, all done, except for the fact that Mexicans are quite a bit worse than Japanese basses. Japanese Fenders can rival a lot of the Americans in quality.

Here, lets see if I can make a decent statement about this question instead of being incredibly stuck up. Mexican Fenders have an occasional gem hidden around them, but i find most to be in the 3-6/10 with the odd 7/10. Jap Fenders have better QC than mexicans but are seem to float a bit above MIMs. American fenders, in my experience, have been constant 7-10/10 for me.
Seriously, f*ck off with the R.I.P Dimebag bullsh*t, you dont see the bass forums going R.I.P Jaco everytime some one mentions him!
#10
Luck of the draw I'd say. They're are crap Americans, They're are Mexi's worth their weight in gold. But for general quality American is ranked highest, Mexi is lowest, Japs are higher mids. (:
Try adding more delay.

Where in the world do your Japanese basses come from?
It goes American > Japanese > Mexican. I personally aim not to buy anything that isn't made in Japan, as it's the best money to quality value.

EDIT: That and, while you sometimes stumble upon really, really poorly-constructed USA Fenders, the Japanese ones are usually pretty consistant.

God I hate guitar players.

Anyway, American Fenders are better than their Mexican counterparts in every way. Mexicans are meant to be more straightforward, affordable version of the American (real) instruments.

Japanese made basses are right up there with the American stuff - it's just the types of basses they make are typically special edition stuff - not the normal stuff. There's no Japanese made bog-standard Jazzes or Precisions. They don't directly compete with the American Fenders because they always have some special feature. Perfect example - '51 Precision, or the Jaguar.

Now, before more idiot guitar players give me idiot headaches, /thread.

^I was just going to say... I own the only Korean made bass I can even think of. I don't even think Fender makes it any more though... At least it's not on their site (except for the large backsplash on the bass pages) Shame really.
