    My sons guitar is still on layaway, but he has made his choice, and a good one at that...

    These are all Squiers outfitted with GFS or Dragonfire pickups.

    image.jpg Do Squier Series count? Heres my '95 MIM strat. Bought it when I was 15, my first guitar, and still my only electric! I've been on a LP jr lust/kick phase lately though so it has a single bridge P90 pickup at the moment and I have no intention of swapping it back to the standard pickguard anytime soon. It just rocks so hard! Only changes besides that are graphite saddles and blocked trem.

    I'll tell ya what though, this thread has me GASSING for a CV Tele or thi line tele. Played both at GC and they were pretty durn nice. I might pick up a cheapo used Affinity tele in the meantime.

    Forgot the "...and why???" part.

    The J5 just feels amazing. I sold it at some point and later traded a Fender for the very same guitar. Sounds pretty good too, even stock.

    The Strat, because it's a really cool guitar that I spent A LOT of money and time on. The pickups alone are worth way more than the base guitar :confused:

    Apologies for the pic (I'm a rubbish photographer), but of the Squiers I own, this is my favourite. It covers the ground I'd want a tele to cover (to the point I'm probably going to part with my Baja soon to fund some other purchases), and more. It's light and resonant enough I can play it unplugged if I want to just fiddle about with it at home. The only problem I have with it, is that I couldn't get it in natural at the time. Maybe I should hit up Warmoth or something. It's a minor quibble, though.

    Honorable mention to my J Mascis JM.

    I had two Squiers, Pro Tone Fat tele and Pro Tone thinline. Now I have only one Squier, Pro Tone thinline neck attached to Pro Tone Fat tele body. So, technically it's still a Squier, a Pro Tone and also a partcaster. It's a beater guitar. I have more expensive and beautiful guitars but this is my #1.

    This ones worked in very nice! Plays great. i've had it for almost 17 yrs.
    Made in USA Squires are pretty rare and i'm not sure of the date of manufacture but most likely 1989-90.
    I got it from Tokyo Joe ( Don Ho's banjo player) he got it from a local band called the Krush so its got real local music history. Its one kickass Squire for sure with just enough wear to be comfy.

    Excluding the Japan stuff...

    The most 'special' Squier I've played was a rather rare Crafted In India SSH almost Mason-style Tele. The maple neck just had some great contouring, seemed like rock hard lumber, the body was Indian Red Cedar which is basically Mahogany. Parts were cheap, but, hey, can't have it all. Those guitars are tanks.

    Thanks! I am partial to the lighter pearloids for some reason. I even ordered my Godin Custom Passion with one. (my profile pic)

    There was used one of these at a local Guitar Center last weekend. Only $250. Nice price for a decent CV with all the return privileges GC offers...

    It was all I could do to get out of the store without it. I already have three tele's and an ESP, and more pedals than I need too. Got to limit myself somewhere! But a nice classic blonde will be in my collection some day...

    I had one, loved the neck, loved the neck mini hb, but it was the most unbelievably heavy dog of a guitar ever. Like cement. I couldn't bond with it, though I regret it's loss now....
