    A new addition to the collection - 1993 MiM Squier, still surfing for info on it but it has the 3 ply pickguard so that makes it the Traditional? I picked it up from a guy on Offerup for $30 as it needs some work, the volume pot spins all the way round and no output when plugged in, the strings are so old and rusty I'd need a tetanus shot if I tried to play it, the pickguard is buckling so he added a couple extra srews to hold it down and numerous dings and scratches but I've been looking for a project. I may even repaint it , definetly something other than black, I guess I can't complain for the price.

    I agree!! King for a Day. I like the aging on the tuners too.

    The ferrules look good - When I got mine it had gotoh vintage tuners. Some of the older traps work better than their reputation says that they do.

    HNUGD! Gotta love getting those under $50 guitars, then add a little TLC, strings and a good setup, you've got a great player. Well done.

    On the change tubes every 4 weeks or so, JB, whether on purpose or not gave away on of the biggest reasons why: "...and put away warm." That is a major killer of tubes. If at all possible never move a tube amp until it is stone cold. That is how people running amps from the 50's-60's are still running OS tubes.

    That's a pretty early MIM Squier,. HNGD ! That pickguard, a bunch of extra screws there, either it was warping or someone changed it, who knows ...
