Hello Tommy in Belfast

This Fender JV Vintage Japan Stratocaster was made on August 2, 1983 by Fender Japan which offers unsurpassed quality in guitar craftsmanship. The Japanese are big fans of Deep Purple and Rainbow so it's not surprising that Fender Japan replicated his guitar (legally) the first chance they could in 1983. All parts on this classic are original/native to the guitar. The pots and pickup switch have been sprayed and the strings have been changed. That is the only modification to the guitar. Here is a description of this fine guitar:

YEAR OF MANUFACTURE: 1983, MODEL NUMBER: JV71129, WEIGHT: 8 pounds 4 ounces, BODY: Alder, FINISH: Yellow White, NECK: Maple Oval Type 'U' Contoured Profile, (25.5 Scale), FRETBOARD: Rosewood, 250R - 21 Frets, HARDWARE: Chrome, MACHINE HEADS: Goth Tuning Machines, BRIDGE: Steel Block S8F Vintage Bridge, PICK GUARD: 3 ply White, Black, White, PICKUPS: Fender Japan Single Coil, SWITCH: 5 Way, CONTROLS: Master Volume, 2 Tone. Black guitar over the shoulder bag included with this beautiful guitar. 

This guitar is in very good condition for its age with only a few minor blemishes that don't take away from the beauty of this fine instrument. The neck is straight and fretwear is minimal. This guitar is 36 years old, and plays fast both up and down the neck. In a word, it rocks!!
