Hey guys,

My local has one of these for £269. Mint condition in white. Is it worth it? I know people say the japanese ones are similar to mexicans, but at this price it's considering it.

Cheers,

Darren

MIJ fenders are usually better than MIM's but just a bit lower than MIA's, they have the same quality as a Highway1 bass I reckon.

I love the special editions they put out and the aerodynes!

My old fretless was MIJ and I loved it. They're solid instruments. MIJ's were MIM's before Fender moved their main budget production to Mexico. In the 80's and 90's, some say the Japanese made instruments were better than the USA made ones. Total bollocks, but they made their point.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Is this a good price? I know MIM fenders are £300ish, but I already have a Mark hoppus jazz bass so I'd rather not if it's a crap price.

Cheers,

Darren

Yeah, all MIJ instruments are better than the MIM ones across the board. The reason Fender moved to Mexico is because it was cheaper for them. They use MIJ factories still, but for medium-high end stuff.
