    If you're looking for a like-new Strat... here's one!! I bought this from Heritage auctions in 2011 on an impulse. It didn't have a case, so I found a used Fender-style tweed hard-case for it, and then promptly stuck it in the back of my guitar closet. I have more than a few other guitars, and my Telecasters and Gretsch models get most of my attention, so this one has gone for years without getting played. In the past 10 years I've relocated 3 times and each time I would re-discover this JV Strat, and tune it up and play for an hour... then back to the closet. It's in excellent+ condition but I just don't play it... so it needs to find a new friend. I don't know much about these... but recall reading that the Tex-Mex pickups were notable, and the necks are praised as well. Just a great Fender Strat!

    I'm asking $675 plus shipping to North American locations. Paypal preferred. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    Great guitars. Nice necks. I have a set of Robert Cray signature Mexican pickups in a partscaster and they are quite notable.

    Wish that I could. That's my favorite color combination, and a nice model Strat.

    Best to you on the sale.

    I have the 60th mim anniversary in blizzard pearl. It has a c shaped neck but the tex mex pups the tex mex pups are pretty darn cool sounding to me. I think I would like the v neck better than the c I have but I love v shaped necks. Great guitar you got there!

    One time I owned a Custom Shop with stock Tex Mex pickups. They sounded like the perfect Strat sound to my ears. I’m sure this guitar equally sounds great.

    Yup, reminds me of my Clapton Strat that I loved the looks of but never bonded with the frets or the mid boost. I loved the soft V neck. I sold it a month ago.

    Years back, I had the "Calfornia Series" Strat with this color combo. I added the aged white knobs and pup covers for some contrast. Sharp looking, but not a "V" neck :(

    It did have the TexMex pups, and I really liked them. They always seemed on the edge, in a good way. Fun player.

    That JV model hits a lot of good specs. Have fun with it.

    I have a set of those covers and knobs somewhere in my parts bin. They are not all created a equal so they may not fit.

    My Clapton Strat, also Olympic White, turned very yellow brown. I liked that. I don’t think this strat, also Olympic White, will. The Clapton body and neck were both finished in Urethane. The JV Strat has a Urethane finished neck but a Polyester finished body. They are similar but Urethane is more fragile.

    UV causes the color change, I think mainly causing the clear coat yellow. I think the JV Strat has lived in its case. It will live on the wall in my house...... Time will tell.

    It'll be a fun time playing it, and letting the UV do its thing.

    Just a cool looking Strat.

    It looks to me as if the JV has already done a colour change. Mine was much whiter when new, with a very pale neck, and now looks much like the one above.
