This is one of those guitars that was made during the acquisition of DeArmond in 2002. Gotta thank JustBob for the trade!!! I have had this thing for 5 hours and have played it for nearly 3 of those 5 hours. I also got an Epi LP jr in the trade but I am selling it to fund parts for this. This one seems to be a bit more of a base model than others I have seen. The neck has a standard dot inlay and the headstock only says "Squier by Fender" with no diamond or anything. It plays- amazingly well. It sounds- 1000x better than I would have ever thought. I already have some parts ordered for it. Gonna be really sweet VERY soon. Here is a pic as she sits in her current state. Black on Black on Black. Soon it will be Chrome PAF with Black Pearl PG on Black. I'm thinking she will be real sexy. I just hope the new PUPS sound close to as good as the ones I am removing.
