    1987 MIJ Squier:



    And my early 80s Japanese Bullet:

        is there a difference between "Made in Japan" and "Crafted in Japan" as far as the qualitly of the instrument? for some reason I got the impression there was a distinct difference between them? but I dunno?

          I thought it was more about when they were made

                Please sign me up. I own a 96 CIJ 72 Tele Thinline reissue and LOVE IT. Got it off a trade on Craigslist for a Les Paul Studio Vintage Mahogany that I just never liked at all. Compared to the MIM version of the same guitar the CIJ smokes it in regard to playability and sound.

                      I think they switched from 'Made In Japan' to 'Crafted In Japan' in 1996.

                      I don't know that there is a decided difference in 'quality' of the CIJs vs the MIJs, but having played probably 50 MIJs and 20 or so CIJs, I can't think of an MIJ that I didn't almost instantly love where the CIJs feel a bit more generic. Not bad, but a lot of the MIJs have a way of feeling very old and worn in.



                      For example, I had the hots for one of the black and chrome CIJ Jazzmasters without the trem and the covered humbuckers. I played 5 of them in town and I actively disliked every single one of them.

                        Here is my Fender Stratocaster. It has a 90's MIJ '57 reissue neck, a late 80's Squier JV body and I've fitted lace sensor pickups (red, silver, blue) to it.

                            Thread is bad news. I have been gassing for a CIJ Fender Aerodyne Jazz bass (the non-export model with pick guard) something terrible lately. Anyone know where I can snag one for semi-cheap?
                            octatrack + monomachine mkII + live 8 + samples = crap.
