I have a guitar here for repair that is an early 80's Fender Japan with a JV serial backplate.
What is the deal with this?
I thought the JV guitars were branded Squier.
Were there some Fender JV's or am I confused?
Perhaps the backplate came from another guitar?
Nice guitar btw.

I had a Squier JV in fact the box it came in is probably on that site as that is all have left of it .I sold it ,still pisses me off . .it was the first Squier and certainly the best by far .It had US pickups and was the real thing .Considered to be the better of the US strats at the time which is why Fender switched production to Japan for a while and sorted out US production .
