"Greco was chosen by Fender USA in 1982 to launch Fender Japan which produced the highly sought after JV models."

Is that true? It's certainly an unusual colour....

Here's another rare bird (if it's real!):

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170189210861

It's been on the market for months now--again the price is high and this would be pretty easy to fake, but if it's real it's super rare and possibly worth the price--just too rich for my blood! I emailed Paul Rumble, former operator of that JV website about this-- he thought it could be a genuine domestic model. I've seen a JV tele thinline recently that looked right, and I think Fender Japan did make a few less common JV models.

I have that same book and it does appear genuine. I have read that the people who came over from F/USA chose the factory that was producing Grecos to build the first FJs.

Overpriced?...I think I`ve seen johhnyringo bidding on Yahoo Japan so he knows what some people are paying for old Grecos nowadays. Would I pay that? Not in this lifetime...I just got this 1987 FA67-75 Super Real for less than $300.oo, so not everybody is willing to pay the prices sellers are asking these days nor do we have to...if people want to help bring prices down, stop paying thousands for old MIJs. Sellers ask crazy prices because people are willing to pay them. Got my Springy locally for less than $200.oo a couple of months ago, I`ve paid $300.oo for JVs here.


But sneaky, you must realize that Japan is only the source for our sickness; the demand is much greater, and it is world wide

Consider yourself lucky to be at the source, and enjoy your advantage for a cheap thrill; an advantage that most here do not have

cheers...................................

Well, in japan the price are very expensive too. Maybe not where sneaky is living, but generally...

they are aware of what' going on with their guitars. The Tokai are very expensive now. Like take the Tokai tele: expensive in japan while Greco are cheaper and fernandes go for nothing. Those are as good as the Tokai so...

Of course ,you can get some good deals from time to time on the models not so thought after or on a small shops in the countryside. BUt visit Tokyo and you won't find so many high end guitars and in the guitar shops or at the local hard off the prices are quite high.

The Greco jazzmaster and jaguar are not so thought after. One stayed at ishibashi u box for more than 1 year for quite cheap. On yahoo they don't go for so much money. But they're scarce.

those ebay sellers they throw away some worms and see if the fishes are coming but if no one bite they will put a smaller price. They have nothing to loose to put a high price so why not. There's a a mijmania after all.


sneaky-chan can I be on your testament? I guess nobody's much into guitars in your family.
