|Fresher Stratocaster 4th Generation Lefty Model
This is 4th generation Fresher made by Chushin Gakki.
In 1980, Kyowa shokai shifted the supplier to Chushin Gakki completely.
As a replica, this Logo time guitar is closed to the original Fender guitars.
Kyowa shokai was still targeting the middle class users. Therefore, this guitar was
sold cheaper than Greco, Fernandes and Tokai. But absolutely better than Mail-order Guitars.
Well, this guitar is really good sound. Personally, I recommend you this guitar.
Better than FJ ? It is very hard to comment. Just I could tell you that this is better than
This is very rare Lefty model. I didn't change any for this guitar.
The body is probably Ash 3-4P with 3.71Kg weight.
The neck is Maple 1P (head area 2P) with RFB. They save the cost using 2P neck.
The nut width is 42.7mm. The neck is fine, of course, truss rod is working.
PU is ferrite type single. If we put the Alnico type, we could better tone.
The nut has been changed by previous owner. I think this is Tusk nut.
The outlook of this guitar is not really good. Many dents and scratches.
It is pretty good quality replica. You could enjoy this guitar well as F Killer.
The guitar will be shipped with Gigbag (not original used)
Additional Info. : Kyowa Shoka was bankrupted in May, 2011. No more Frehser guitars even new products.
