1995 Fender Squier series strat
upgraded 3ply black pickguard
upgraded gotoh/kluson tuners
New cts 250k pots and upgraded switch/output jack
A fine example of the mysterious squier series guitars, this black 1995 model was made in the new fender Mexico factory in the years after the famous fire that put production to a halt. The squier series guitars were assembled using surplus Corona, USA fender bodies and necks, combining with eastern squier electronics, bridges, and tuners. Being such a unique guitar, they have since been coveted by players looking for a well built fender at a much cheaper price.
This particular guitar has been recently set up with 9’s and plays beautifully up and down the neck, oozes that strat twang, and has incredible chime when played through an amplifier.
This example has been well loved but does show its age with a few blemishes in the finish and a patch of scratches over the backside of the guitar. The tuners have been replaced with vintage kluson style gotoh tuners, and upgraded 3ply black pickguard for that david gilmour style, and the electronics have all been replaced to their american made equivalents, save for the pickups. bridge is the original 6 screw mount. the “squier series” logo has been removed from the ball of the peghead at some time in this guitar’s past, although the all black fender logo identifies it as such.
