    Does anyone recognize this guitar? It looks very much like a Squier but is clearly not marked as one. My guess is the bullet truss rod adjuster makes it early 90s origin. Not the unusual location for MIK on the back of the head stock.

    I think the seller is dreaming with this price. But it looks like it has a very nice neck.

    Someone posted that exact guitar recently. The serial number is of course not real.

    Headstock looks odd. Bullet truss nuts were pretty much a 70's and 80's thing. All my Korean Squier Strats have Korea on the face of the headstock. Serial there or on the neck plate. All 90's no Bullet truss.

    Everything about this guitar seems wonky to me.

    That would be me! Apologies that I had already done so. Turned 70 in Aug and my recall seems to be aging faster than the rest of me....

    The headstock looks like it was reshape and the back plate is off too. Look at the strew pattern.

    The body is all wrong. I believe that is a Samick product.

    Here's another weird one for ya. Got it at a yard sale a few weeks back. Says made in Korea on a sticker on the back. Works with an amp. or 9 volt battery. KIMG0320.JPG KIMG0323.JPG KIMG0322.JPG KIMG0321.JPG

    I’ve seen those around a few times. Weird guitars for sure.
