ok, a little question here...

first off i dont actually play bass too much... (I prefer guitar),
but has anyone had any experience with the 'California' Series that fender put out??
it just says california on the headstock nothing else....

Is the Bass any good?

The Fender California series was the precursor to todays standard deluxe series. They were basically mid-range instruments that were part made in Mexico and part made in the US (just enough work was done in the US that they could legally write "Made in the USA" on the headstock)

They were only made in 1997 and 1998.

If its the Squiers with the California series sticker on the pickguard, means they're just Squiers made for distribution in Asia.

squier calofornia series arent really bad, and they are really cheap, they are only export models i think so you cant find them in the USA that easy. they are the most common in my country thouhg

You says it just says California on the headstock. How do you know it's a Fender? All Fenders say Fender on the headstock.

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..
