Why is Japan Vintage so highly regarded overseas?
Many Japanese people are very particular about the value of brands, and tend to buy foreign brands such as "Fender" and "Gibson" rather than domestic models. Overseas players do not care much about brands, but are looking for a truly well-made instrument with a good sound, and will buy the ultimate instrument, regardless of the price. That's the image I have of them.
They were the first to realize the beauty of Japan Vintage, and they bought them as if they were competing with each other! In addition, recently, with the new name "MIJ", which stands for "Made In Japan", the premium level of Japanese Vintage instruments has increased even more. Although a little behind the rest of the world, in recent years, Japanese vintage instruments have become very popular in Japan, and are supported by people of all ages, from the elderly to the young.
For this project, we have picked up Fender Japan, which has been gaining popularity among Japan Vintage instruments. Especially rare and hard to find "JV Serial Period", "EXTRAD", and LIMITED EDITION models. TC Gakki has searched all over the world for these rare and hard-to-find models!
All of them are gems, and to be able to gather such a large number of them at one time is truly a miracle. It was hard for me to contain my excitement.
