Or Japanese Vintage Strats as they are called, were produced in the 70s/80s. This includes Fender Japan, Tokai, Greco, etc. At the time, these companies were making strats that some say were better then those that were being made at Fender’s American factory. Alot of these JV strat makers would reissue vintage spec guitars closer to the original then what Fender reissuing at the time.
Today, these guitars are considered collectors items, and many use them as their playability and even pickups are incredible. Lets take a look at some of these strats.
