    Came home for lunch yesterday and happened to see what looked like a dead mint Squier SE on my local Craigslist for only $50. I quickly texted the seller and said I could be over in under 30 minutes. A quick drive later and I was the new owner of a mint SE in sunburst! With a decent Fender gig bag, Fender Sidekick amp, clip on Planet Waves tuner, Fender strap, cable and guitar stand. I did not have the heart to even try and negotiate at that price.

    I can EASILY sell off the extra stuff and more than pay for the actual Squier.

    What's really odd was just how think and chunky this neck was. It is a full "D" neck and not the standard "C" that seems to come with these guitars. Now normally I just mod n flip these cool little guitars but given this huge n chunky neck, this one will be a keeper!

    GFS full size steel block vintage style tremolo is on the way. I have plenty of CTS and CRL goodies on my bench to easily upgrade the electronics. The pickguard is not stock and is a sweet WD version.

    I decided to order these pups from ebay for a more modern Strat given that I have plenty of real vintage Strats. I have used these before and they are excellent value for the money and hum cancelling so plenty of options with push/pull pots too.

    More pics to follow !

    Beautiful burst on that! I need to find one of those to replace the boring black body on my MIM Squier Series.
     
  4. Indeed ... if mine where not the basic black body and this sunburst instead, I wouldn't feel the need to re-finish / paint.
    Great score.

    Cheers, Barrie.

    All my SE's started as flips - but they were all too nice to let go !

    WD makes a nice PG - but I would white Pearl that burst ala Birddog ! His burst's look so nice with white pearl ! Then pop three of those white rails in there and break a window ! ! ! lol

    Congrats ! we all love these package deals !

    way cool! $50 would be a pretty screaming deal for the guitar alone - but w the extra candy, its a killer deal!

    HNGD!
