Just got this Wayne's World MIJ Squier from '92. Amazing guitar in every way- best sounding Strat I have owned or played yet. All original. Pickups may be ceramic, I'm not sure. Body is basswood, bridge has thin crummy cast block, and yet it sounds amazing. Excalibur! I plan to open her up and examine the pickups more closely. There's a big rectangular magnet on the bottom of each pickup like a traditional humbucker design, but not sure if alnico or ceramic since I took only a peek.
