    That is gorgeous! A lot of guitar you got there! Congratulations. Considering the ridiculous asking prices for JVs these days I'd say you def scored. I paid almost 700 for my ST:65 about 10 years ago!

    Rockape or others who are super knowledgable about the specs can probably tell you everything that's going on under the hood.

    Because of the switch. Here is a picture of the electronics of my E-series squier strat. Same switch (Not original wiring on switch and pots!)

    The body is indeed original, the route between neck pickup and neck heel is a common feature in the early JVs.
    Mine looks the same except the wood is Japanese sen!

    Yep the pickups look the Japanese SQ units, probably this example fell in the pickup shortage period?!?!?

    The pots codes are in line with the JV serial.

    The second number in the date should be the day of the month, so 3rd of..... I guess the first number could be 9or 10 (September or October).

    Rockape will surely chime in with more details.

    All in all great score!!!

    That is a super, all-original JV. You do understand that this is when we all get jealous and turn against you? :D

    That is an August '82 or latest 03 Sept which is right for that serial number.
    Yes, pot codes are good and I have seen a few export JV's with this switch, including one or two first issue models (YM version though).
    The pickups are SQ Japan, which is what I would expect to see in a JV1xxxx (wonderful pickups actually!).

    Looks all original to me (soldering looks original on the switch).

    Rubber pickup spacers, as per export and Fender ST- spec.

    Looks absolutely gorgeous!
    Well done that man!

    Add me to the hate camp as well. ;):D

    Thanks for all the pictures and enjoy that that lovely JV.

    I might leave the metal aged but that is me. Has some great honest patina there.

    Hello Tamarindo03. I have a nearly identical guitar JV12688. I'd love to talk necks and switches with you in the pursuit of that unobtainable JV "truth". Many thanks. P1020822.jpg
