    You could pay a lot more here too for a full setup. $10 for a string change is okay for those who don't know how to do it or really hate it

    I think the only vintage guitar that I would want to pay for or be re-created is the jimi hendrix monterey strat which Fender Japan has now for 2017 model.

    Fender Jimi Hendrix

    That I would pay for full price.

    I got to play one of those. My friend runs a store & they had one make a pit stop there on the way to the customer. It was nice.

    But they don't have the backwards whammy bar--so that wouldn't be the same...

    (Backwards only because Jimi played a right-handed Strat lefty--so the bar was backwards...)

    Does Fender still make guitars in Japan?

    As far as I know I did hear that Fender Japan is no more
    I think the factory/factories were used to build a different brand (s)

    But don't quote me on that

    A lot of people rave about the Japanese Squiers- I wonder if they are worth a punt

    The early ones were pretty good
    But it's probably been longer since there has been a MIJ Squier than a MIJ Fender
