The JV Modified Series combines classic aesthetics with modern playability to suit the needs of today’s guitarist. Taking cues from the now highly sought-after “Japanese Vintage” reissues from the early ‘80s, JV Modified guitars are a refined take on a modern classic.

The '50s Stratocaster HSS has a resonant basswood body and features a pair of vintage-voiced single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions and a powerful humbucking pickup in the bridge position. A push-pull pot on Tone 2 splits the humbucking pickup for sparkling single-coil sounds, making this Strat extremely versatile. The Soft "V"-shaped maple neck has a silky-smooth satin finish and the 9.5" radius maple fingerboard and medium jumbo frets provide effortless playability.

For the player seeking classic Fender instruments with a twist, the JV Modified Series delivers a unique combination of vintage Fender style and modern playability.

BASSWOOD BODY

Basswood is a lightweight wood with well-balanced tone making it an ideal choice for solid-body guitars.

THICK "SOFT V" NECK SHAPE

The thick “Soft V” shaped neck features a slightly more rounded version of a ‘50’s style “V” profile, providing a comfortable playing experience that is ideal for both rhythm and lead work.

9.5” RADIUS FINGERBOARD WITH MEDIUM JUMBO FRETS

Medium Jumbo frets combined with a 9.5”-radius fingerboard provide a comfortable fret-hand feel and allow players to comfortably switch from cowboy chords to soaring leads with ease.

ADVANCED ELECTRONICS

A handy push-pull switch on the second tone control splits the humbucking pickup, providing dynamic single-coil tones for added versatility.

One of our most innovative designs, this six-point tremolo offers proper intonation, full adjustability, and easy access to cool vibrato sounds.
