Figure I'd put this up here before ebay. serial number dates it to '97-'98. great condition. this is my all-time favorite electric guitar but i'll be moving overseas with nothing but my seagull to keep me company. the switch could use a cleaning or replacement, as could the volume pot (I'll include 2 500k pots and a MIJ replacement switch). a couple very very tiny dings here and there but it's in awesome condition overall. some very very light buckle scratches on the back.

$744 PPD

currently looking to either trade for a deville 212 or for MIM tele + cash. theres nothing wrong with this guitar, i'm just a little ocd about keeping it in mint shape. this is my ideal guitar, i just have a thing where i let the possibility of damaging it distract me from playing. yes, i am a weirdo.

The decal doesn't appear authentic. Doesn't have a "made in" label either. Did you buy this used originally?

Thanks for the reply. I suppose I should have drawn the distinction between MIJ and CIJ. This is a CIJ model, and as is the case it has Crafted in Japan printed where the neck meets the body. According to http://www.guitardaterproject.org/fender.aspx :

"Your guitar was made at the
Fuji-gen Plant (for Fender Japan), Japan
in the Year(s): 1997 - 1998


Fuji String Instrument Production Corporation

Fuji String Instrument Production Corporation was opened in may 1960, they initially started manufacturing violins and quickly switched to classical guitar production. In 1962 electric guitar construction was started. Fujigen has a reputation for excellent quality and craftsmanship so the guitars they produce are highly regarded. They produce guitars via OEM for famous brands such as Ibanez, Epiphone, Yamaha and Fender (the import Special Interest Group nature model), G&L and others."

Serial number is A036766

haha, well i lived near osaka for about 14 months. tried out lots and lots of guitars and bought some of my favorite things.

and wtf, the MIM version of this guitar is $940 now. that's ridiculous. it used to be $720. theres also an american version of the guitar but as far as i know, it's only for export.
