verb: descend; 3rd person present: descends; past tense: descended; past participle: descended; gerund or present participle: descending

Hi, Disillusioned: I too went to Hard Off and bought a cheap Chinese copy of a Fender bass; after taking it apart to replace the electronics, I made the same observations as you regarding quality of components. The bigger picture is that domestic instrument manufacturers have all deserted Japan to move production offshore.
