This is a Japanese copy of a 1962 Fender Strat (see link below for photos). I purchased it new in 1983 from Last Chance Guitar in Roselle Park, NJ. In the store at that time, there was this one and a 1957 copy. Store owner sold it to me as "Fernandes," but a few months ago, I saw the 1957 version on eBay described as a "Greco with a 'Vintage' logo." I've contacted Fernandes and they're not sure (nothing in their catalogs with "Vintage" on the headstock). Contacted the current Vintage company and they confirmed it's not theirs. There is no serial number. I would greatly appreciate any information. Thanks.

I think this one has been discussed here before

Thank you for posting the link. I've never posted this question on this site, but I did have it on Strat Forum, which is where I found the eBay listing of the "Vintage" 1957 copy described as a Greco. The more I look into, I'm not finding definitive answers but I'm coming across information that makes me have doubts about the Greco description. I've always believed it was a Fernandes (until I saw that listing). I don't want to mislead anyone, and I want the price to be fair and reasonable. Again, I really appreciate any information anyone has--or suggestions for where else I might find more info.

I think the thought it might be related to Greco came from the "Super Sound" lettering being similar to lettering on Super Sound Greco's. Have you ever taken any pictures of the routing/electronics ?? The people here would probably have a manufacturer nailed down for you with those pictures.

I have added photos of the routing/electronics, as well as the neck and neck pocket (unfortunately there are no markings on either). Again, if anyone could provide information, based on these photos, I would greatly appreciate it. Here is the link to the updated posting. Thank you.
