    Hi all,i bought a Squier Strat "made in China sticker" no serial ,it has some strange points to it,the neck date stamp is August '95 but Fender started in '95 China made Squiers? its an excellent guitar by built got a real 50's/60's feel to it.
    I did some research myself but nothing equal popped up,the most significant difference is the black trussrod plug,i cant find a similar China made Strat with it,i own a few yako made 90's Strats and a Tele but not as early made as this one.
    Hopefully someone can shine his light up on this one.

    I think this is a YN serial prefix 1995/96 Strat with a snowman route @Eddie and @jefffam can confirm.....

    Serial number would have been on neck plate originally....

  11. Made in China with a plastic truss rod insert? European model.

    I honestly don't know. All other things I would say a CY98 except for the neck stamp. It is not a YN or NC with 21 frets and a plastic truss rod insert. YN/NC has no insert and always 22 frets. I'm baffled, unless it is some kind opf European only model I'm not faniliar with. Sorry, not much help.

    YN would have 22 frets.

    Would this be a European SE?

    Maybe. I have perso0nally never seen a YN with either an insert or 21 frets. You have seen one I haven't.
