Japanese Fender offset model numbers / years ... 1986 to 2002

Post by timtam » Sun Jan 06, 2019 6:05 pm

I've seen Japanese jag/JM model numbers like JM66 and JG66 mentioned on OSG and not known what they were. I recently found this site that has Fender Japan catalogs from the 1980s/90s/00s that filled in some of that information on these and their variants. From what is available there I've listed the years and model numbers below. You can check out specs / colours in the catalog pages.

Any commentary on aspects of these models/variants welcome.

Years: 86 89 92 93
JG66-75
JM66-70

Years: 90 91
JG66-700
JM66-650

Years: 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 02
JG66-85
JM66-80

Years: 95 ... gold models
JG66-90G
JM66-85G

Catalogs also contain Mustang, Jagstang, Squier Vista, Jagmaster.

Nice, there's a German site that I've used to research Fender Japan stuff, but it's in a less navigation-friendly format than this one.
