    Hi All,
    I'm new to the Fender/Squire game. I have been playing at guitar for a few years and Decided to get serious, so I look around for a good guitar. Then a friend of mine, who is a keyboardist, introduced me to a lady who had a guitar for sale. She told me that she purchased this guitar in the '80's with the intension of learning how to play, but she started having kids and never got around to it. Her kids played around with it but no one ever got serious about playing it. She was doing some spring cleaning and her Husband suggested she get rid of it, and that's where I come in. After being introduced to her she sent me some pictures via Phone, we agreed on a price of $200 with case, and decided to meet at her church. I paid her, thanked her and took home my prize. I don't know If I made a good deal or not, but I happy. 1987 MIJ Squire Strat. What do you think? 20190516_195258.jpg 20190516_195308.jpg 20190516_195258.jpg 20190516_195312.jpg 20190516_195323.jpg 20190516_195258.jpg 20190516_195308.jpg 20190516_195312.jpg 20190516_195323.jpg

    Welcome. $200 for any MIJ is a steal.

    I think you got super ripped off. I'd happily trade you my Squier Bullet Special to make up for your misfortune. Your guitar has way too many pickups. Mine only has one humbucker. It will be way less complicated for you.

    Seriously though, that is a well equipped, nice looking guitar. If I was in the market for a SSS Strat, I would be well glad to snag that for $200. Nice find! and HNGD! and Welcome!

    I drove 2 hours last week to snag an MIJ Squier. Totally worth the trip. I love these.

    That Fender double-locking bridge has always intrigued me. Great score and welcome!
