    Well, yes sort of. Pickgaurd had to be replaced due to the original being signed by David Bowie. Jeffam was nice enough to send me a nice stock but aged pickgaurd (thank you Jeff) to replace the original. The frets we're dressed by my good tech, then it got a total cleaning and set up as it was a mess. The guitar was never played before I purchased it and hung on a wall since 96. This one won't be modded, just played.

    Great looking guitar! You did good.

    Might be a dumb question, but I'm trying to learn all of this Squier stuff. What is a NC6?

    Thank you. It's a 50th anniversary edition. NC6 is the beginning of the serial number that's all.

    Great work bringing her back @Bulletman. That guitar looks fantastic.

    Kudos on keeping it all stock. I have a couple that are mostly stock, but none 100% I may give all stock a go with the right guitar in the future,

    Not a dumb question at ll. In the mid-90's, Squier maketed what they call the Vintage Series. A subset of this series are the guitars made by Yako based out of Taiwan. The two main letter designation lines were 'YN' and 'NC'. Both lines mostly identcal but some differences are there. Both lines are great guitars. Some of us choose to pursue the 'NC' line for various reasons, not the least of which are full size bodies & fantastic wide, flat, slightly chunky necks. "NC6' refers to the plant , Yako, China and the 6 referrs to the last digit of the year it was made. In this case 1996, Fender's 50th Anniversary

    ETA/Correct: NC is Nineties China which was a designation used only by the Yako factory.

    I'm addicted. Don't tell Brian that there are several NC's in the DC/Baltimore area. I have dibs on them already !!!
