    Hey there...just purchased an '86 Squire Japan J...I was looking for a reasonably priced counterpart to the '83 American P that I recently bought, and this seemed like a pretty good value. I know that it is not one of the highly-valued JV-series Squires, but I would still like to know a little more about this axe, if anyone can help me...

    Was it built at Fuji Gen Gakki? US pickups or Japan pickups? Basswood or alder body? The seller told me that this was the last year of Squire Japan J's - the following year, the folks at Fender Japan started putting the Fender name on the J's hey made....is that true?

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
