Just scored a Squier JV Telecaster with a serial starting with a zero: JV0XXXX.

A 52 reissue in butterscotch and with an "ashtray bridge", that seems to be in almost mint condition (apart from the back of neck having had the varnish taken off and beeing oiled instead).

The guitar seems to have been made in august -82, beeing among the earlier JV guitars.

I?ve never played one of these - and unfortunately I?ll have to wait a couple of weeks before it gets here... - so meanwhile I?d like to know a bit about the general opinion on these guitars

I know that the Fender JVs, made for the domestic market, are supposed to be of an even higher quality, but I suppose that also these guitars are really good?

The guitar is the same model as this one:

Sounds nice in this clip:

Received it today.
Great guitar!
Weights about 3,2 kg and is in a wonderful condition

The varnish don?t seem to be that thick, but I?ll have to check it more closely.
The fit of the neck pocket is surprisingly loose, but the body and neck wood must be of a high quality, because the tone is really great.

I?m so happy that I found this one!
