Fresher guitars were first introduced in 1973 by the Kyowa Company of Nagoya, Japan. Early Fresher guitars were budget instruments based on the popular American designs but by the late 1970s quality had improved and Fresher designs were becoming more original. The first and second generations of Fresher guitars were made for Kyowa by the Matsumotu Musical Instrument Manufacturer's Association, but Chushin Gakki made the third and fourth generations. In 1977 Fresher launched a series of electric guitars with built in effects. Kyowa stopped producing Fresher guitars in 1985.
