Hohner arbor series "Strat"

This is the Guitar I bought at auction that was listed with the "Fender Starcaster" as a "Hohner Electric Guitar"

I have wondered what the symbols on this guitar were and whether they were original or not ever since I got it? After all, like the guitar they look very "eighties" Big hair, big shoulders and rolled up sleeves - the decade that taste forgot. Well I have just tracked them down and they were put on later, I found a place that still sells them. the top one is the Japanese kanji symbol for honesty and the bottom one is the Chinese symbol for glory; so pretty random?  Neither attribute conveys anything I want to aspire to, (I never let the truth get in the way of a good story) so I will redouble my efforts to remove them and the guitar will look a lot nicer for having it done
