    Local guy has this listed for sale. He says Fender Squier Strat Electric.
    I messaged him and he said that's all it says on the headstock. Initially I thought it might be a Korean model, but not sure. It is a 45 minute drive to go see it. He is asking a reasonable amount for it.... but I'm not sure.

    I don't see any affinity markings, and it looks like 21 frets with small headstock. Any input would be appreciated!

    I don't recall a squier with a "cocked" HB in the bridge ? at the very least - it's been messed with ?

    He said the pickup is a Seymour Duncan. So I'm sure it's been messed with. The individual seems potentially like someone who is under the influence of something other than beer. I'll ask a straight question and he replies with irrelevant information. It may be worth checking out just for fun / parts. I need a neck anyway.

    Update: It's a Purple/Blue color... not black like I thought it was. It looks like someone took of the "Squier" logo. I'm not an expert on these, but it looks like a thin body, so I am going to guess Affinity. I'll have the neck off in a few and know more.

    Well I like the color and if the pickup is a SD, better yet!

    Looks terrible and makes no sense. You can get a fresh new decal.

    It came with the same little amp that would have come in that Strat Pack. So I am in agreement. I'm guessing the serial would have been on a sticker along with the country of origin? The frets on this one are nice and finished, unlike some other Affinity models that I have played.

    For anyone interested, that bridge pickup is a Dimebag Darrel signature. I'll probably list that whole pg on here for sale even though the guy cracked it in half behind the bridge pickup.

    Also, thanks everyone for the replies and information!

    Yeah, it was an IC sticker - it's Indonesian made.

    Or could it have been a decal also sanded off the back on yours ?

    It doesn't look like the back of the headstock has been tampered with. But stranger things have happened.

    There are people who apparently feel shame that their Strat says Squier on the headstock.

    Once I covered up the Squier logo on my CY98. But at the advice of the forums, I peeled that sticker off so that all can see my Squier pride!

    My main bass I play has a Squier neck on it. Actually 2/3 of my electrics do.

    I just can't put down the bass that has that CV Jazz neck on it. The profile is outstanding! I play it as much (more I think) than my bass with the Geddy neck.

    If you're rockin' a CY98, the probability is you have a super nice, good playing and feeling instrument. Congratulations.
