    This is a Squier Japanese 'Standard' from 1993/94 - the model number is 'STL-33'

    basswood body OR PAF wood fiber, ceramic pickups, high quality Gotoh tuners

    worth about probably 400-500 dollars in OZ? Just a guess....

    In USA, this is a $300 US dollar instrument

    Saddles are not original

    Is us a silver series without the silver series logo?

    It has 2 string trees however the silver series has one?

    This has absolutely nothing to do with Squier Silver Series. That was circa 1992, this is 1993/94. Totally different model with different specs and price point.

    It's an STL-33 - meaning Squier, Telecaster, sold for 33,000 Japanese Yen when new.....

    I checked the STL33 model on Google and they all seem to be silver series?

    I have nothing else to say, I have given my knowledge - but it's always questioned these days, and I'm sick of it....

    I googled the serial number and all I can see is silver series telecasters with this serial number

    is there a chance there may be another serial number for the Teles that are not silver series?

    Mate, your comment adds absolutely nothing to this thread.

    It not even funny.

    My understanding up to now is that Squier Talk is a place to ask genuine questions.

    However if people like you are free to add useless comments I am now questioning this?

    I'm also of the opinion that everyone should be treated with respect. Your comment in my opinion lacked respect.

    For what its worth I'm not 100% sure what this guitar is and thats why I have come here seeking clarification.

    Sadly next time I'll reconsider posting future questions.

    You asked your questions and got answers from the most knowledgeable person here. What you choose to do with those answers is up to you, but they won't change. Perhaps you could have shown a little respect yourself and at least have said "thank you"?
