    Just bought my third Squier, the keeper I've lusted for going on three years now....never thought I'd find her but I did...this week, just in time for my 65th at the end of the month. A 2017 barely touched Squier Deluxe Strat' in Daphne Blue... and they do play as good as they look. I'm in love. Last year for my 64th I found my Classic Vibe but definitely my third choice now. Found the HSS on the wall at the local music store, set up, nicely sanded neck, unbelievable action compared to my fret worn and sprouting 80's Tokai Strat. Was around my 63rd and a surprising introduction to modern Squiers and better playability.... think it was a steal at $270 cdn or thereabouts.... Was my first wife until Daphne came along this week....

    Welcome to ST. Those are all very nice strats, seems like you know how to pick them. The deluxe has been on my wish list for a long time too, but they don't turn up very often used around here. I like the daphne, but the pearl white ain't bad either.

    Welcome. So the silver one is tokai? Or is it a Squier also?

    Keep a lookout...found this one on Face Book Marketplace in Valleyfield, Quebec. The lad had two, has put hot rails in his keeper, I bought the 2017 spare he's hardly used, and had been going to relic !! He's a guitar teacher and had it up with other guitars for $400 cdn.... I couldn't believe it...in fact am still pinching myself in disbelief. He said he'd got a deal on it via his job at the music store, and was happy to get his money back on it. Also it had been up a week when I got it, and several people made him lower offers on it....that he refused. So there are still some nice people out there, and some bargains....

    I get by the Blueberry Hill Bistro there once in a while. I grew up in the UK so it's nice to go to a little country pub sometimes... Chris the owner is a retired engineer from the UK, and his brother is a doctor at the Hawkesbury hospital. Am aiming to move to Vancouver Island now I'm retired.... want to walk my dog in Jan/Feb without dying of hypothermia! Hopefully my last Ontario winter; don't envy you in Winnipeg....

    The silver one is a Squier, my first ... the Tokai isn't even the "springy" sound everyone wants, it's the Goldstar version that came after. About three times the price of the silver HSS which was on the wall at Long and McQuade the day I picked it up and discovered how nice and easy it played compared to the Tokai. Also like the light weight of the Squiers, the Deluxe is actually the heaviest of the three, but still light in comparison to most electric guitars. The Classic Vibe is a bit lighter, and the silver HSS is the lightest.
