    Seems like there was a limited run of Fender (not Squier) Telecasters made in Korea.

    Would anyone have any idea as to the years?

    Thanks.

    Early 1990s Squier Series. Cort-made, I believe. Here's mine. I think they had ceramic pickups originally. Mine were changed when I got it. Found for $100 in Sacramento. Maui Blue!

    Crazy! I don't know where you guys find these Squiers for a hundred bucks... Then you snag a Fender for $100?!? Awesome snatch, man...

    ...

    I've never said that before in my life and I never will again... Lol...

    I found one. Thought it was a fake. I was gonna email the seller to let him know he had a Squier with a fake Fender decal. I'm glad I asked you guys before I opened my mouth.

    If anyone is interested:

    They made a couple E10 Tele models back in 87' that had a Fender headstock logo instead of Squier... Ive only seen 2 tho… They were pretty much Squier E10 models with Fender on the headstock... They built a few E10 Fender strats as well the same way. Same pieces and parts but they said Fender instead of Squier on the headstock…


    Zzzzz… Blonde 87' MIK E10 Fender Tele... Original white PG replaced...

    Yeah, I just didn't know Fenders were made in Korea for a bit. Almost jumped to conclusions without checking the facts ... almost like today's media. :)
