Here is my Japanese made Squier ST-331 Straotcaster (not a Bullet, a Stratocaster) with a single humbucker, rosewood fretboard, single ply black pickguard, single volume and no tone control, output jack on the pickguard. I bought it used for $125 at Gary's Music Emporium in Mena, Arkansas in early 1992 and have been playing it ever since. It has an unusual 24.75" Gibson scale and is routed for the bridge pickup only, which is very odd for a Fender. It has a black headstock and an A serial number (Made in Japan.) I've had it since 1992 so it's at least that old, according to the Fender site it's a 1985 or 86, but we all know how unreliable dating Japanese Fenders can be. I have modified it with an EMG Select pickup (I'm thinking about putting a red dual Lace Sensor in it) and coil tap and kill switches. It is a very unusual oddball and plays and sounds GREAT. It plays as well or better as my Mexican Strats and my Japanese Tele. I hope to have it until I'm on my deathbed.
