Hello everyone, I am a new member here. This is my first post. Hopefully I do it correctly. Just wanted to post a picture of my first electric guitar. This a Reissue of the 69' Mustang. I am currently living and working in Japan, so I thought it would be fitting to get this Japanese exclusive MIJ Fender while I am here instead of paying import fees later. I bought this guitar used from a second-had store here in Japan called Hardoff for 43200 (230.78, $359.31USD). The guitar looks as if it has never been played. No scratches on the pickguard, zero fret ware. It is in perfect condition. The only thing it is missing is the tremolo arm. Otherwise, It is actually in better shape than a new model I played in a local Ishibashi a month back. Maybe someone received this as a present, had no interest, held onto it for a few years in a closet, and eventually decided to sell it off. I have no idea. From the serial number lookup, I figure this is a 2010-11 model.


Just wanted to say a big thanks to everyone here. I trolled this forum quite a bit before deciding to purchase this guitar. It really paid off. This guitar is a singer.

That is gorgeous. Great price too. Is that typical of the second hand market in Japan?

From the internet shops I have been checking, mostly Ishibashi and Hardoff, the price I found was on the low end, but not too far off from an average. From what I can gather, Ishibashi has higher prices, but tend to only sell used goods in decent shape. Hardoff has their own ranking system and sell everything from junk to new products. Their website is fairly difficult to navigate if you don't have any Japanese language skills. I use what little I have and use Google Chrome to translate.
The translations aren't perfect, and need a little decoding on the reader's part. Here is a translation of their ranking system:

My purchase was ranked 'A' and it was flawless.
The one I got was the best ranked at the lowest price I had seen after stalking the site for about a month and a half. They currently have a mustang up at the moment for the same price (in CAR) but it is ranked 'C' I played a 'B' ranked FUJIGEN Mustang copy in an actual Hardoff store (it's a chain) and it had VERY little signs of wear. Maybe a tiny scratch on the guard.

Hardoff Japan Electric Guitar and Bass
Here is a link to the Hardoff site. I have no idea if they ship outside of Japan. It would require a bit of Japanese to get the job done, I think.
I navigated to the electric guitar and bass section of the website. You can type in a brand name like "Fender" "Fujigen" or "Tokai" in English, in the search bar at the top of the page and hit the red button next to it (it means search). If you want to narrow down the search results, in the navigation bar the left side of the page click the link that looks like this その他ボディタイプ it means "other body types and means anything that isn't Strat or Tele shaped.

@Osakataru; Damn my British ignorance! Shit the bed I'm in love with this Mustang on their website. If I'm understanding correctly, it's a real '78 priced at about 400 and gloriously beaten to shit!

I bought a CV Duo Sonic as I have started taking guitar lessons and want to actually learn from an instructor instead of doodling around like I have been these last couple of years. I have a Casino Coupe but I just don't think a 12" radius is for me as both the Duo Sonic and the JMJM feel easier to play when making chords. And I wanted a short scale. So, it was either a D-S or a VM Jaguar and I happened to come across a good deal on this one ($200), so a VM Jaguar might be a future purchase.

I actually had a Duo Sonic with a black pickguard a few years ago but sold it to either pay bills or get something else. Anyway, I like the sounds I'm getting from it. I'm just running it straight into a Mustang I with some spring reverb and occasionally od/tremolo.

The J.Mascis Jazzmaster and the Duo look good together!
I like an aesthetically themed guitar collection; mine seem to be all red with white pickguard.

Thanks, but it wasn't intentional. I prefer daphne blue, lake placid blue, and sherwood green. Even black with a nice tort works for me. These just happen to be the stock colors. Although the previous Duo Sonic had a black pickguard, I'll probably just keep it as is. If I were to change it, I think I'd go for brown or red tort.

Better watch out there, Addam. If you figure out how to get those guitars sent to the motherland, your pocketbook might stay permanently lighter. I find a guitar about every week that I have to stop myself from buying. However, that is a magnificent guitar, may be worth learning Japanese for. Ψ(`▽)Ψ

If I could have worked out how to email them, I'm sure that guitar would have been on it's way. Rolling Eyes

First forum post.

Joined the shortscale club recently with a Squier VM Jaguar. I've had loads of Gibsons and Fenders over the years and this thing beats them all as a gigging axe. Other than a set up, disconnecting the top tone control and adding a buzz stop (put on 'backwards', which gives a perfect angle, imo) it's stock.

I've also got a Harley Benton MS-60. Amazing guitar for the price. The trem unit was installed crooked so I had to refit it, and it needed a fret level/polish and nut work, but otherwise it was fine. The Wilkinson pickups are particularly good so they are staying. I did adjust the polepiece heights a bit. I found a YouTube of someone putting a Mustang scratchplate and control plate on one of these (search for Harley Benton MS-60) so I did that. Pretty staightforward, but one screw went into the pup rout and is glued in.
I've put a Mustang 3 way switch in over the neck pickup and wired it as a 3 way. The other one is one of the Harley Benton 2 way switches disconnected. Might make it an on/off sometime...

I liked the MS-60 so much I decided to get an actual Mustang as well so I got a red Squier VM. Love it. After a set up and cutting/reshaping of the trem arm it plays like a dream. I was afraid of the bad rep Mustang trems have, but this one is rock solid for tuning. I can bottom it out repeatedly and the tuning doesn't budge.
Got some Lace Hot Golds ordered for it. Unlike the VM Jaguar these stock VM Mustang pickups are awful, I think.

Welcome to the forum! I think you'll fit right in. There's quite a few who love their modded Squiers and Harleys around here.

Plaidbeer, you did so good! I've been playing for more than a few years and have plenty of great guitars. But I wanted a travel guitar that was good quality and when I found my Fender Squier CV Duo-Sonic, I loved it from the get-go...

I love vintage anything, and it's so close to the original, like the colors are spot-on. The weight is like my 1965 Mustang...super-light; the shape is ergonomic; and the tone compares well to most of my better guitars (so much of the tone is in the amp, anyway).

So enjoy your great deal and don't feel ya must upgrade...the CV Duo-Sonic is up-grade.

Doug

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. Sorry I haven't responded sooner--it's a been a while since I visited the thread.

Yeah, I'm keeping it as is. It doesn't need any upgrades. While I love the Mascis, my guitar teacher noticed me struggling to form chords as easily on it vs. the Duo and said to stick with the Duo in terms of practicing. And he's right as it's easier for me to play than the Mascis at this point in time.
