Welcome @jeffh ! Your Strat brings back memories of my first Strat.
Thanks for all the welcome messages and info on my strat.
Going over it today I noticed that the bridge is out of wack. As you can see in the pictures, the back of the bridge is raised pretty high and one corner of the front is sitting on the pick guard. Tomorrow I’m going to break the guitar down and get a good look at its parts and electronics. And try to re set the bridge.
Hello, Am from Bangladesh. Its nice to ear from u.
Welcome to ST if ya need anything let me know, I’m near Qualcomm
Thanks man. I’m in North Park. Do you know where to get strings? lol
Thanks. I hope all is well in Bangladesh.
The "bones" on SEs are all there. You got a nice, coronaproject!
Thanks. It’s kind of funny, I was doing some research on squier strats and came across threads talking about full size body’s and how great they are for mods. I became obsessed with finding one. Everything I found was out of my range so I gave up looking and settled for this one. It was advertised as a 2019. Turns out I got exactly what I was looking for.
I usually wait until guitar center has them on sale, a couple years ago they had 10 packs for $25 I think I bought two packs, and then I found some more 10 packs at the swap meet for like $10 so I’m pretty much set for another year probably?
I think my only options for getting them in a reasonable time is to order them from eBay or amazon.
what do you use - I'll track down a bargain for you ! brand and gauge
Thanks, that’s pretty awesome of you! I might have found some. Went on Craig’s List and messaged a guy selling guitar pedals. Hey just got back to me. I’ll let you know if it pans out.
turns out we all have a little time on our hands ? lol
I lived near 30th & University for 33 years
Welcome to the forums...
Looks like somebody was messing around inside your Strat...when they put the pickguard back on they didn't tuck that pickguards neck cut under the last fret before setting the rest of it down...you may find that they had to make some new holes because of this error...
There are unbalanced trem screws under the back cover causing one side of the bridge to pull forward...
Either way it's a pretty quick fix

How’s it going?
Thanks. I think the pickguard isn’t original. I did have a look under the back cover but I’m not sure how far the screws are supposed to be in. It stays in tune pretty well.
Well there is such a thing as a "floating trem" but your bridge is waaaaaaay too high by any standards...here is a link to how a floater should be set-up:
