Don't tell my Mom I am looking at "Guitar Porn"!:eek::eek::eek:
I have been blessed with a wife who has come to enjoy them as "art". I was talking on the phone to someone and mentioned the possibility of selling a $3.00 yard sale find because I couldn't find the parts to get it working again, (1965 Intermark Cypher, MIJ). She had made a modest protestation when I bought it. After I got off the phone she was YOU'RE GOING TO SELL THAT? I told her "I thought you didn't like that one...". She said, "Well... I took another look at it and it's okay". (She responds the same way whenever I mention selling any of them).

This is a sunburst Squier SE Strat body..... @Kid Stratocaster

The pickguard and pickup are not original.....

You seem to have another one on your wall, a complete guitar, with red tort pickguard and 3 white single coil pickups - that is also an SE in sunburst
I did find a factory MIJ Strat w the same setup, serial number E511343. (I should have captured the pic...).

No no, that's not what this is - MIJ would have different burst pattern and different string spacing at the bridge (they use 2 7/32" vintage), this is 2 1/16" modern

Squier SE is known for the dark painted over neck pocket with the hole in the center.....

It's the same body as on your other Squier SE Sunburst....end of story

She’s a keeper!
