    Hi, I'm a frenchie living in Austria, mostly playing bluesy, jazzy and heavy stuff.
    As I found plenty of helpful and serious info on this forum I decided to register.
    Also, you all seem to be very nice people :)

    I bought my first tele a year ago, a 2nd hand Vintage Modified Squier made in India (pics below) and I just love it.
    The bone nut excepted, the mods I made are - for now - purely cosmetic.
    That bridge won't stay long, it prevents me to palm mute correctly... this put aside, that axe does the job really good and became my favorite pick to jam around.

    Always open to suggestions to make it sound/look even better.

    Have a nice day!

    Welcome! Interesting that your Squier was made in India. I didn’t know they had a factory in India.

    Salut,

    I used to want one of those. I did find one unsold in a shop, but they were asking too much for it.

    They don't have a factory, they made them on contract. The same place they made the Jacksons.

    Thank you!
    According to this website, mine was crafted in 2010 and it would appear that they stopped production there two years later.
    That was also the first time I heard about decent Indian squiers, as I recall the ones made in the early 90's were catastrophic.

    Salut, may I ask how much they wanted for it? Mine was 200 Euros/230 bucks with softcase, good as new but I had to set it up entirely.

    I don't remember it was many years ago, I think 300 Euros or more. May have been over 400.
