What are the specifics of a MIK Squier with Ser# E9xxxx?
Any value to them?
It is a 1999 model..Black lettering on the Ser#. Young Chang production.
Though even this can be questioned. The article states that all production moved to Cort in 1997 and all the serial numbers began with the CN prefix.
Once again, I have stumbled onto an anomaly that is vague at best to accurately pinpoint its production time and place.
I'm pretty sure that is a late '80s Samick factory.
I too thought that would be 88 or 89... @Guitarmageddon will clear this up.
that a different E9 to the one in your ngd? You picked two up?!
That's not right, it's 1988-89, and it's not Young Chang made. It's made by Samick. Forget articles, just ask me lol
OK, I believe you, it's just that there is so much out there that it becomes baffling.
Some info is here, however they neglected to mention some E's are made by Samick
Maybe I will be lucky and there will be a date stamp on the heel.
It's made in 88-89 1 million percent for sure. If you see this kind of sticker in the neck pocket or on the neck heel it's Young Chang, if that isn't there it's Samick.
I did not pull the neck but took off the strings and pg to clean it and see the guts. I like these 2 mag coils. They will stay but get good pots and cap. Will also be wired for 1&3 to be on front tone knob and 2 on the rear one.
This is a beautiful, unflawed red metallic paint and fretwear is about zero.
It has a big block trem and stamped Fender saddles. all 5 of them.
I am happy with it.
It also has reflective black paint in the cavity. Tuners are traps and will get tossed.
I JUST got an E9 Squier II, @MrYeats, and it's got one of the best necks I've ever played... But to me it was a lil confusing with the serial numbers and such...
As stated earlier in this thread, E9s are '88-'89. And yeah, the necks are pretty nice.
Curious, what color is yours?
That's no Korean 80s body, it's something else - you got a partscaster - nobody was doing body shielding back then. The body on yours should have been SSS routed with a plywood body, and this is obviously solid wood.
Looking closely, It is plywood. I can see the plies in the cavity where the springs are.
It is definitely not SSS>so it is a partscaster, that is OK, I really like the color.
should it have the big block trem?
stamped Fender saddles?
Okay, must be repainted and body shielded - some were HSS
That metallic red wasn't a stock color. She's a beaut!
If you're talkin to me, I got a plain Jane black with white pickguard... But I'm in the process of fixin that, lol... Just ordered a black pickguard...
That'll spiff her up!
Am I the only one who thinks Black with maple fretboard and 50s thin 1 ply pickguard is the absolute best looking strat combo that ever existed?
