Too many distractions.
The headstock is right for the era, it's a domestic model. I notice the neckplate is incorrect too.
Silence, foul temptress!
A little bit of digging reveals he only bought it a month ago. For a lot less than he's trying to sell for.
If they had bothered to use real horses they would have found it a lot sooner.
I suppose that's what I was trying to say but phrased much better!
I was going to say "that'll do nicely" till I saw that various "improvements" have ruined it. IMHO of course. But even if you like the changes made to it, they have certainly dented the value. £4,679.71 is easily the most absurd asking price I have ever seen for one of those! Even unmolested it's not worth anything close to that.
The new seller must be an old Etonian.
For 62-65 I would expect to sell about 1300, maybe 1500 Euro with the red bobbins.
I have seen 62-115s sell for about 2500 and sold two 85s for around 2000 Euro..
If theres one thing that will set me off is people selling "holy grail" bloody JV Strats and asking for stupid money
The only person stupider is anyone buying one...
It looks like the prices just went up again........ouch!
Did you play JVs?
I would not say there the "holy grail" and I dont say prices are justified, but on the other hand from my experience they are the best Japan made Strats I had.. and these were a lot....
I kept one 62-85 for which I paid 2000 Euro and for me it is worth it.
Plus it will be more worth in some years...
One of my keeper Strats is my 1983 Fullerton '57 Reissue. Lightweight, great body contour, sounds fantastic with the original pickups. I've played several JV era Japanese Strats and Teles. They weren't bad but I'd never pay more for one of them than a Fullerton.
I've just bought a Squier JV '57 and paid £920 inc postage and insurance. Same quality, different badge. It's ****ing lovely though
Nice spot. Maybe, like me, he thought that buying collectable guitars would make him sound better than the awful amateur he is?
No, didn't work for me either.
I bet most of us have been guilty of believing a certain guitar will make us play better.
I'll wager you can make a nice sound with a guitar.
My JV Squier is priceless...to me.
I sold my '65. Because it wasn't as good of a guitar.
I have a JV 62-85 as well and it's a super nice guitar and it look's great. Had been after a 57 as well. But as they are so high priced I ended with a AV from 2001 and that guitar is very nice as well. Maybe I'm not sensible enough....
I've had and still have some JVs and only had one Fullerton strat which I sold because it didn't have that nice round edges on the neck as every JV has.
Same goes for my Fullerton '52 tele vs JV tl52-95
Did you eventually sell your 65???
