Japanese made Fender instruments have long been the go-to for musicians looking for guitars with vintage Fender tone and style that won't cost as much as their USA made counterparts. Guitars made by Fender Japan in the '80s & '90s have become somewhat collectible in their own right, with an amazing build quality for the price. This 1983 Squier Stratocaster is one of the first run of 'JV' serial number FujiGen Factory made guitars. The original series featured 1962 & 1957 reissue models, with this guitar being an excellent example of the latter, with a tinted gloss lacquer maple neck, two tone sunburst and single ply white guard. The neck profile is not quite a severe as a try '57 style 'V' profile, but is still full feeling and very playable. The body is fitted with a set of vintage style single coil pickups that perfectly recreate the presence and chime of a '50s Stratocaster.
This guitar is in very good, original condition, with minor signs of play wear to the finish on both the back and front. This guitar has been given a full service by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
