    Looks like an older Squier Strat Standard in HH .

    Could be a partscaster though with the 6 screw tremolo bridge .

    The link above my post shows a 21 fret neck where yours is a 22 fret.

    6 point trems were used in 1999 and early 2000. Those were nice instruments. :)

    Would love to find one of those. Haven't seen that color for years now.

    Not clear to me from the pics if it is British Racing Green (1999-2000) or Sherwood Green Metallic (2001-2002).

    It might be that the BRG came with a black scratchplate and the SGM came with white? Guessing here.

    That's the Sherwood Metallic. I've had bunch of them.
     
  13. I believe the early 6 screw bridges where 21 fret necks. When the 2 point bridge was introduced, they went with the 22 fret neck. Maybe there was a small crossover point where older bodies where being used up? I don't know.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Sorry for my misspelling of Squier it was very early in the morning LOL. It’s got a very nice well-loved and played 1974 style neck contour. I would guess it’s the Sherwood Metallic finish over the BRG. The neck plays great, but the pickups are outta phase in the middle position, so I think I’ll have to reverse them as the neck pickup has the hot (over 9.k) output while the bridge is about 7.7k resistance. I kinda like this hot little monster but I may sell it or install some really old Duncan 59ers in it. The tuning keys are better quality than some of the other Squiers I’ve seen. I believe this guitar is a transition model due to the six point bridge and 22 fret neck. Everything looks original inside, etc. Did these originally have the serial numbers on the neck plate? Thanks for the information everybody! If you have any more tips, by all means send them my way.....

    Starting in the Middle Ages, a squire was the shield- or armour-bearer of a knight. At times, a squire acted as a knight's errand runner. Use of the term evolved over time. Initially, a squire was a knight's apprentice.
