Finally pics of my 1987 MIJ Squire. I saved the original electronics but put in new pots, cap and Lindy Fralin Vintage Hot pups that I had lying around. The other strat is my 1995 Strat Plus Deluxe which has 28 year old Duncan SSL-1's and a Duncan Broadcaster which has the Tele angle in the bridge. Swimming pool rout allows this easily. The Squire plays better than the Strat Plus Deluxe which is no slouch. The Broadcaster in the bridge definitely does sound like a tele. The Fralin bridge pup has the baseplate but still sounds like a strat. The Fralins are glassier than the Duncans but the Duncans sound fuller but with less glass. Both are great just different. The Plus Deluxe has the Fender Licensed Floyd Rose bridge and Locking Tuners, the Squire has the Series One bridge and locking device above the nut.
