Default NGD Squier Contemporary MIJ E5 serial

hey everyone,

just got this, so far it really like it.

for how the guitar center guy was describing it, I thought I may be receiving a basket case, surprisingly it is in excellent condition.

so the pickups and switching are the neat thing about this guitar.

three toggle switches,

the top switch is an on/off for the neck single coil pickup. on when the switch is up.

the middle switch is a on/off for the middles single coil pickup. on when the switch is up

the lower sitch is an on/off/on switch, that when up in the on possition, it splits the humbucker into a single coil,and when down in the other on position it is a humbucker. off when the switch is in the middle position.

this has fender japan tuners, and fender stamped saddles, and a full size tremlo block.

it has a lot of power and level changes between the pickups, I need to ajdust the hieghts to my taste for sure.

I am thinking that you bought a super nice guitar that sound amazing. We had one of those here in Nashville, down at the Guitar Center. I asked the repair tech about it and he raved about it.. I think he had to do a few things to the trade-in to make it salable.

Nice axe.. and Welcome.

o I been on here for tjnugent, I see you posts all the time, but thank you anyways. this place is great.

I think these guitar may have a micro tilt adjustment but I am not sure, I will find out soon though.

the one I have is already very stable, stays in tune, I just adjusted the tremlo so its floating now, and it feels very good returns to the same spot everytime and is on tune after heavey use.

fuji gen gakki is the bomb, I am very pleased with all the guitar I have seen comeing out of that factory.

thanks everyone, I like this guitar so far.

It has that eddie van halen sound, while useing heavey overdrive

I have been working on eddies beat it solo on michael jacksons beat it. With this guitar the solo sounds much more similar to the real thing than with my other strats.

Sweet guitar. I used to have one exactly like yours and it was a great playing guitar. You can get some many different tones with the mini toggles.
