The earliest squiers were made from NOS Fender parts from the sixties - they really sound fantastic and feel great.

not $1200 great, though

You sure about that? I'm not arguing...I really don't know. It just sounds like an urban legend started by Ebay sellers wanting to squeeze more money out of unwitting buyers.

I just find it hard to believe that Fender just had a bunch of old 60's guitar parts laying around for 15-20 years, then decided to send them over to Japan to build guitars with.

color is gorgeous.

absolutely gorgeous. that's the color i've had in my head to lay down on a jazzmaster but i haven't found anything in real life that comes close enough. it's like a sonic blue with a little tealish and yellow thrown in thanks to aging.

under the guard it's like a brighter daphne.

It's okay. The poly finish is a bit "hey look at me I'm bright blue".

But the price... jeez! I bought a custom shop relic for way less than that last week.

the time has come... i KNEW IT!!! Twisted Evil
JV are supposed to be WAY above the standarts of those times (early 80s)... FANTASTIC guitars and well... i'm poor and all, but i think they ARE worth that kinda dough.
i picked up my SQ (big head 70's-look) squiers at around $100 a piece, and they've been selling near the $500 line lately. i've had several real 70s fenders but these SQ's are WAY better, in EVERY way. the feel, the looks, the sound etc. - plus, the weight's alright (unlike the les paul-ish heavy US fenders of the era).

ok i'm a bit biased, i know... but... oh well.

Pat.

When Fender was sold the 50's machinery & old stock from the old factory was shipped to fender/Japan . While they were setting up the new fender custom shop , Squire was making Fenders. I was clued in to buy the series that had the shell pink & maybe this one as well as I was told they would become collectable

er, no. Fender Japan didn't exist when CBS bought fender USA. When Bill Schultz told cbs to GTFO, he sent production to the japanese factory, where they still knew how to make guitars while he saved fender US and taught everybody how to make motherfuckng guitars.

I think thats basically what he was saying. For a while Fenders were being made only in Japan while the US lot were being sorted out. The company that makes Fenders in Japan is not actually Fender but the license everything from them.
