    The first thing to say is it's a hybrid. I can clearly see the neck is from a Korean Squier Strat made by Samick in 1989. The mystery here is the telecaster shape body it has been combined with.

    I don't recognise that scratchplate shape. And I don't think I've ever seen a telecaster without a neckplate.

    The guitar is being advertised as a Squier Telecaster but I've definitely not seen a Squier body like that.

    Does it ring any bells with anyone? 7f3271b9-c5cb-4ca6-a6de-ac9200ff4548.jpg c15a9820-1b05-4686-ab19-ac9200ff39e9.jpg ktele.jpg 3d312ea1-1525-4ffc-ab55-ac9200ff416d.jpg

    Neck Checks out OK, but I looked at a bunch of Korean Squires and none with a Body like that? Nice Body, by the way! You can see that the Neck Pocket "wants" a 22 or 21 Fret Tele
    Neck with Square Heel vs Strat with Round Heel, though?

    Looks like a hybrid of every Fender ever! Maybe a bit of LP to the horn!

    Similar to a Bullet Body, just a little wider, but no Tele Headstock. Partscaster with a Nice Neck! I got Dates ranging 1988 - 1996 off my Dater. Quite an Overlap?

    Could be. They seemed to look like this, but could be modded.
