Stratocaster dating japan

In many cases, these Japanese Fenders and Gibsons are of higher build quality, finish and tone than the US made versions.Orville by Gibson, Orville, and Greco were all mainly produced by Fugi-gen Gakki, although Terada was involved in the later Ob G's also Orville by Gibson were the Japanese manufactured Gibson Les Paul, fully approved and authorised by Gibson USA.I have always been collecting, selling and buying guitars, and I have made a lot of mistakes buying and selling original Fender and Gibsons.I have owned original 62 Stratocasters and an original 1959 sunburst Les Paul flametop.There were also a number of limited run series made for large Japanese guitar shops, such as Yamano, these can be spotted by the lack of a pickguard hole as they were ordered with the pickguards off, and are sometimes, but not always, solid flame tops, and one very limited run features solid Flametops, and a one piece back.Based in Nagoya, Aichi, Japan, Hoshino Gakki were one of the first Japanese musical instrument companies to gain a significant foothold in import guitar sales in the United States and Europe, as well as the first brand of guitars to mass-produce the seven-string guitar and eight-string guitar.

and Fuji Gen Gakki guitar factories to manufacture Ibanez guitars, and after the Teisco guitar factory (Teisco String Instrument, Company) once closed down in 1969/1970, Hoshino Gakki used the Fuji Gen Gakki guitar factory to make most Ibanez guitars.Today Tokai and Grecos are the must collectable, but this may change tomorrow.I have noticed, that in the last year prices have gone up a lot.The EIA assigns each manufacturer a three-digit code (there are some with one, two or four digits).When dating an instrument by the ‘pot code,’ keep two things in mind: The potentiometers must be original to the piece (new solder, or a date code that is off by ten or more years is a good giveaway to spot replacement pots); and the pot code only indicates when the potentiometer was manufactured!
