Japanese Vintage Squier Stratocaster

I've had this guitar for about 12 years... I believe it's a 1962 Fender Japanese Vintage Squier Stratocaster, and the 2nd one ever made. The bar code on the back is JV00002. I didn't realize until this year that the JV might stand for Japanese Vintage.

I was wondering if anyone out there knew anything about this guitar and what it might be worth. It sounds beautiful. It's not like I'm looking to sell it or anything, but if it were worth a good bit maybe I would and buy a couple guitars and perhaps some food.

Jason, I believe your information, about your guitar, is incorrect. There were no Fender products being manufactured in Japan in 1962. Fender products manufactured in Japan began in 1982 or there about.

The serial number you present would indicate a manufacture somewhere from 1982 to 1984. Serial numbers are not always an accurate method of dating Fender instruments, though. In this case it is probably correct.

Hey,
I believe that the Squire JV's can go for about $500 for a Sunburst. More for a "Custom Colour", and if it really is a the 2nd one made it would probably also go for more.
Anyways, it's definitely not one of those $80 000 guitars.
