Made in Mexico, Fender Squier Stratocaster. I looked it up a while back and I believe it came up a 1998 model. I did many high quality mods to it, including: Fender American Standard deluxe locking tuners, Graph Tech original saddles, Seymour Duncan Hot Rails bridge pickup (white), EVH 500k low friction volume pot with 0.047uF capacitor w/knob from Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier (chrome), SwitchCraft #11 input jack, and all new wiring, Warmoth 3-ply pickguard (black), Fender 3-ply tremolo cover plate, Fender “F” logo neck plate, Schaller S-locks strap locks in chrome (full set). Paint is called Candy Cola. Currently set up with Ernie Ball Power Slinkys 11-48 gauge strings. Guitar is set-up and intonated. All these parts are about a year old. This guitar plays extremely too well for being a Squier. This Squier Stratocaster is one of the easiest and most fun guitars I have ever played. The action is amazing, and this thing chugs with the best of metal guitars! Comes with original white pickguard, original vibrato bar, and a soft cast with a shoulder strap that works great! I just noticed I have the original Squier tuning machines and Squier saddles (chrome), I will include those also!
