Fresher Stratocaster w/Floyd Rose Type Tremolo

Fresher brand guitar was made by Kyowa Shokai in 70's.
I should say their 1st and 2nd generation guitars are not good quality guitar.
These are just ply wood guitars even Les Paul model, just like mail order guitars.
This cheap construction made very cheap tone, but this tone is so dry and make a feel
like old sound.

Anyhow, 3rd and 4th Gernrration were changed much due to manufacturer change.
The bodies became solid type, the metal hardware were changed like middle class quality.
That's why many collectors are looking for them.

Here, in Japan, the collectors love the Fender Japan, Fernandes, Greco and Tokai staff.
Fresher, Yamaha, Joodee and other brands Stratocaster are not really popular.
Maybe, many collectors want to get more accurate replica model.
However, if you are thinking about the tone, I must say it is meanless.
All brands guitars were only brand name. The actual factories are sub-constractors.
Fender Japan ? They don't have own factory. Gibson Japan ? it is same.
Fernandes? Never. Tokai? Yes, they have...Only Tokai has.

This 5th Generation Fresher is interesting guitar.
The tremole unit is simillar with Floyd Rose. But not exactly.
It is very simple construction. This construction is absolutely cost effective.
I would say good idea.

The guitar is good condition. The neck is probably maple 1P with 42.55 width Lock nut,
The Body should be Sen or alder 3-4P with 3.68 Kg.
I could not specify the detailed becasue of solid color.

I like this production concept to offer the proper level price.
If you are intereted in JV guiatrs, this is good guitar as first collection.
