    Fender's Big Secret: Basses

    Guys, I just found out that Fender's been making basses for a couple of years. I knew Fender made Epiphone Les Pauls, but I had no idea they were in the bass business.

    Funny thing is that the serial numbers put the sunburst JB at 2013, but I read in Esquire that Fender's first year to make basses was 2019, the year my black JB was made.

    I can’t believe no one knows this. Everybody’s too busy buying Rickenbacker Parker Fly Basses. If a few name players used Fender basses, more bassists would discover them.

    it must be a fake, somebody trying to pass off a chinese bass as a vintage 2013. How dumb do they think we are?
