Who is making the JV guitar?

Many companies offered the different brands for Japanese market. Well, of course, the guitar
industries have been doing the business. They should think about the efficiency of manufacturing.
Some of them haven't got a manufacturing facilities and have asked the subcontractors to produce
the guitars. This is business.
First of all, all companies have dome the marketing, then start the sales concept and business plan.
After that, started to look for the manufacturer (well some of them own it)
Brand name is, sometime, just following the brand distribution. Like Greco (Kanda Shokai) Fernandes,
they don't have their own factories.

However, the for user standing points, we would like to know who made it ?
The below chart were made by ourselves. Please note that we tried to find out the right information.
We referred most of information from JV book and internet info. Therefore, we could not take any
responsibility. Please use this just one of information.If somebody know more detailed information,
please let us know we would update this chart.

Well, actually, it doesn't matter who made it ? Because we love JV guitars !
