    About 2 years ago I bought a black SE Strat for my kiddos. In researching the lack of truss rod plug, I came across Squier-Talk and many questions were answered.

    Fortunately/ unfortunately, a deep curiosity was also unearthed in me, heartening back to me first electric, a 1995 Squier Series mim Strat.

    One thing led to another... and this is my current bevy of Squiers, several played by kiddos (I have 6 chillrens).

    I’m considering lightening the load a bit (not the hello kitty or CV Tele since my kids play those actively).

    I’ll put separate for sale posts up as I get time to photograph them properly as to not bog this thread down.

    - Standard Strat with surf pickguard (assembled by @Lonn)
    - VM Jag
    - MIK bullet 1
    - hello kitty Strat
    - 99 Stagemaster (still has the plastic on the
    Pickguard)
    - CV 60s custom Tele with 4 way switch
    - standard Strat (looks black but is black metallic)
    - M-80 Mastery (with the set neck)

    I'm down to three NC's and 1 Bullet. :)

    Not much time to play these days. I'll get back into the groove soon enough.

    I don’t understand what you mean by lightening the load. I’m only counting 8 guitars there.

    Haha. These are just the ones on the chopping block. My non-Squier collection is larger than this...

    The middle one is awesome, I’ve always wanted one of those (just not with the weird MOOG circuit in them) and the wood-stain Jazzy reminds me of any number of refinished JM’z from the 70’s...
    VERY nice collection ya got there!

    I’m actually selling that Princeton (locally of course) to fund another (probably silly) purchase.

    It’s moving gear season :)

    I’ve been through a bunch (dozens, in the last decade), Not as many in the last two years, and even of those... I did not keep them all.
    Kept:
    VM Jag SS BASS, Silver
    Bullet Strat, burst
    VM PJ precision, Blue

    Sold/Flipped:
    Standard Jazz Bass, trans red
    Dimension Bass, Black
    Couple of SE/Affinity Strats super cheap to clean/restring/flip.
    VM Tele Deluxe HH
    Cyclone

    I love the Squier's I have now, but other than m a y b e
    A new Starcaster (if on sale) came along, I’m done for now.

    Newly married, setting up a new household, and trying to play out more, is just not leaving any time to flip or work on guitars.

    I've been on this forum for about 3.5 years. I have no clue how many Squiers I went through.

    But as of November 2019, I was down to 3 Squiers. Now I'm up to about 10 with 4 more coming in the mail. Oh man.

    @Eddie thanks for resurrecting this.

    I was somewhat stunned to realize I’ve sold ALL of these except for the red surf strat.

    I picked up a Squier Bass VI, and still have my avatar pic guitar (refin Jagmaster), but have been diving deep into Ibanez since December :)

    ... I forgot my new (old) JM JM.

    once the paranormal series comes out, I’m sure my Squier quiver will be full again.

    What a collection! I’d love to spend a few hours (or days) playing those.
