    I met a guy at Guitar Center, which I don't usually go. He said he had a Squire M-80. he told me he did not like the neck on it. His is a bolt on neck and he decided to change it, he said he put a Telecaster neck on it with a rosewood finger board. And he also told me it played a lot better to him, and it made the guitar look unique. People was asking what kind of Fender was that, he also told me me the neck was of a early Fender Squire about a 90s model. He also could feeding a bunch of bull. So what do all of you think.

    That 1 photo is not enough to tell anything - looks like a normal factory Tele.....that maple 22 fret neck can't be from a 90s Squier....the fret dot spacing is too narrow, that's modern Fender and Squier spacing.....

    Well, if you have no photo of the guitar you're trying to ask about, nobody's ever going to be able to answer.....

    I can tell you it might not fit, the M80 has a different shaped neck heel - and it would require filling and drilling because the holes for the M80 neck mount are offset....

    Coulda worked better for him, that's one advantage of having a bolt on neck, being able to do neck swaps. That pic is of you & your new Fender American tele, huh?

    Without seeing the actual guitar, I still have a couple of questions because the Squier M80 happened after Fender bought Guild. Guild used to make the M80... it was a double cutaway solid body and the original M80 (made in the 70s) was a 24 3/4" scale guitar, effectively another version of Guild's single cut M75 Blues Bird and equipped identically.

    In the 80s and 90s Guild got a little into the shredder market - at that time they graduated a few guitars into the 25 1/2" scale, too. The M80 was one of those along with the Sprint and the Flyer but some of these guitars had 24 fret necks .... so now I'm wondering if Squier equipped the M80 as a 22 fret neck? I'd be curious to see this M80 body with a Tele neck for sure.
