    I just purchased a 03 blue Squire hard tail for $52.27. It features a banana neck, two finish cracks at the neck pocket, scratches and filth. I've disassembled, cleaned, straightened the neck and performed a fret job. I'm now rubbing out the scratches by hand. My goal is to get this "Strat" as right as I can while not replacing (upgrading) any parts.
    Thank you for the sight.

    I purchased this 2003 Indonesian for $52.27. The neck was bent upwards quite a bit. The guitar was filthy and scratched up. I've been rubbing on it for days. My goal is to get it right while not replacing (upgrading) any parts. IMG_0421.JPG

    I picked up a squier bullet a few years ago, and although I'd planned on giving it a pickup makeover, I decided to leave it stock because I liked it that much. Sounds great and the action is ridiculously low (1/32")!
