    Got this one today.
    Wonderful guitar, great sound.
    Love the pickups and the feel of the neck.
    A keeper.

    Did you change the pickguard on this guitar? Looks like there's a truss rod slot on it. Plus it doesn't look as white as the stock photos.

    I weighed it and it is only 3.28 kg/7.2 lbs.
    My lightest guitar.

    Yeah I switched it out for a 'Phat Boys' '59-'62 style 'nitrate' guard which has the truss adjustment notch. The guitar is my Squier version of the Blackmore signature strat. His first (and favourite for more than a decade) white & rosewood with black covers & knobs strat wore one as well so I'm just making it look accurate. It's also got a strap button on the headstock a silver trem tip and plain black pup covers like his original.

  16. Nice all around Stratocaster:). Like @SpeedKing I have the blond version (all stock). I got mine priced at a steal. Enjoy yours ;).
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Nice. Got a question though for anyone out there. I’m not real versed on all the Squier models. What are the features that make a 70’s vintage modified? Thanks.
     
  18. Large headstock, vintage tuners, Duncan design pick ups, and color combos recognized in the 70's without actually creating a signature model. So, largely a visual package.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Thanks Barrie. Will have to keep an eye out. Don’t think I’ve seen one myself.
     
  20. Check out Fender.com and look in the Squier offerings. You'll see what's available and the last time I checked there was two Strat VM 70's, black and blonde.
    Cheers, Barrie.
