Hi Papa tom,  "I was pleasantly surprised to find your website where you sell vintage system I tremolo parts. I ordered the few missing parts that I need and I am delighted that the parts you sold me are original vintage Fender MIJ parts so I can keep my MIJ Strat vintage. Excellent foresight on
your part to start collecting these parts so people like me can keep our
MIJ Strats in original condition."
Thank you, Robert

1960's History

But  before you can do that you must learn about the Fender Instrument Company and how it got started in 1946.

It's allot less writing for me if you just  copy the free link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fender_Musical_Instruments_Corporation

 Ok I know the link is small, one of the hassles of site building.

Back  to the story.  As you read by 1982, Fender USA contracted Japan to build for the Fender Musical company.  Oh you didn't read that.  That is in the Fender Japan part of the story in the link below.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fender_Japan

The   small link above will tell you when Japan was contracted by Fender.  Many of the Leo Fender Strat and Tele Plugs, which were unfinished guitar bodies and necks remained in the Fullerton warehouse until Fender CBS Pretty much Stopped production, for one point for about 8 months in the mid 80's made no guitars and relied on Japan for their producet.  So many new models and different guitar configurations invented by the Gakki plants became a smash as Strat Pluses and Super Tele's and Stratocasters were being configured with Humbucker Tale Pickups and double Humbucker pickups and an array of different electronic and pickup configurations were wetting new guitar enthusiasts appetites as CBS sold to investors who were now seeking to make cheap guitars to make money.  Until then the History of Rock and Roll Art faded into Money making investors.  In todays rock and roll you don't have to be talented, just pretty or good looking enough to sell CD's.  The day of the Jimi Hendrix's, Beatles, Elvis's to name a small few are gone.  Good bye to Fat's and the Ottis Readings of the world and the great Blues singers who OD'd their Legacies to faded memories.  Including the Axe's they played.

I  hope to bring back some of those memories by providing vintage parts and guitars, amps and some of the later equipment the bigger greater bands used up until the 90's.

to all those rockers of the past we solute you.        rock on !  where ever you are.
