It's Crafted In Japan. With the exception of a few sig basses, most Fender sig basses are CIJ.
Fender FSR Standard Jazz Bass(Sapphire Blue finish!!)
Squier VM TB Bass
Squier Precision Bass(heavily modified)
Behringer 180 Watt Combo<--My EQ pedal made this sound decent O_o until I get my Gallien-Krueger half stack

They are more expensive yes, but just because a signature bass isn't made in America doesn't mean its going to be cheap.
Gear:
EBMM Bongo HS 4
EBMM Sting Ray 5
Eden D410T
Tech 21 Sansamp RBI
Tech 21 Sansamp RPM
Art 341 Dual Channel EQ
QSC GX5 Power Amp

am i correct in assuming the american ones are expensive??
well now most CIJ's(crafted in japan) tend to hover around the lower-end american basses(If you haven't noticed fender raised thier prices alot this year. Geddy Lee is now$999. $849 for the Highway One(cheapest American-made) The most expensive CIJ, the Marcus Miller Signature, is the same price as the new American Standard($1149)

EDIT: The American sig basses like the Stu-Hamm, non-custom shop Jaco Pastorius, Victor Bailey, and Marcus Miller 5-string(the five string version is MIA) are quite pricey; above $1699. The custom shop jaco pastorius bass is a whopping $3,636.80!

if you could get one of his, it's probably gonna be MIA. not only MIA, but custom shop too.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
