❌SOLD❌  Fender 51 Reissue Precision Bass MIJ Butterscotch, 2010

Here’s a revisit to the one that started the electric bass revolution – the Fender 51 Reissue Precision Bass, here seen as a Made In Japan version dating to around 2010 and carrying the classic butterscotch finish. As Leo Fender began producing amplifiers and electric guitars – both Spanish and Steel types – it became apparent that acoustic basses were not going to keep up, and were harder to play in tune.

Drawing from the very popular P-J concept, the Fender Aerodyne Jazz Bass has the general outlines of the classic Jazz Bass, but adds a Precision Bass type pickup in the middle position of its Basswood body.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Red Paisley Telecaster MIJ, 1994

In 1968, the Fender Red Paisley Telecaster appeared, used by one of the hottest players on one of the hottest stages – James Burton and Elvis Presley! Also available in a ‘Blue Flower’ finish – the same idea, but with flowers and a blue tint, these finished did not last long in the Fender catalog. These models have been reissued from time to time, and in 1994 and 1995 the Fender Red Paisley Telecaster was built for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen Gakki in Matsumoto, Nagano Japan.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Squier JV 1957 Stratocaster Black, 1982

Here we haVe a Fender Squier JV 1957 Stratocaster reissue, built during 1982 for Fender Japan by Fuji-Gen Gakki. By the end of the 1970’s Fender, under CBS management, was struggling. Import copies were getting better all the time, which was made very clear to Fender executives touring Japanese factories with a view to doing some production there. At this time, Fender also hired three executives from Yamaha.

❌SOLD❌ Ibanez JSM100 John Scofield Model Thinline Sunburst, 2009

❌SOLD❌  Ibanez JSM100 John Scofield Model Thinline Sunburst, 2009

The Ibanez JSM100 uses the same construction concept as other ES models, but the wood choice is a bit different. The body, instead of using Maple laminate, uses figured Anigre, an African hardwood, for the laminate. The center block is Maple, as is the neck, which has an Ebony fingerboard. Decoration is similar to other Ibanez models in this range; hardware is gold plated, and the inlays include a mix of Abalone and Acrylic for the block markers on the bound, compound radius fingerboard.
