I got this from Yahoo Japan missing a couple of knobs and in need of a good clean and a new volume pot. It cleaned up pretty nicely and plays great. I think the pickup is a ceramic U-1000 or something similar. It has 7.8 k resistance. It has lots of sustain which may be helped by the brass nut.
The guitar has a pretty fat neck for a 70's strat copy and I am very happy with the sound and feel.

I guess it may have been an order model or maybe they had some fun with the leftover parts since this would have been made near the end of the Greco Fender copies.

It is just routed for a humbucker and volume/tone with the output jack off to the side like a Gibson. You can see some of the join lines for the body pieces. I think there are 5 different pieces.


All-black finish front and back:


April 1982 serial number. When did Fender Japan guitars start going at Fujigen?


Brass nut, gold hardware and just a Greco decal:
