    It's has the standard cup with a switchcraft type jack. Nothing special.

    Nice, whatever it is for $50 bucks you can't go wrong, but you may have found a real steal.

    You have yourself a 1985/6 Fuji-gen made Squier. In other words, a real gem.

    It plays really well! GREAT neck, very smooth, and easy to play. Seems to have a very thin poly finish. I haven't touched my other guitars in days. My normal #1 (57ri strat) has been neglected. Total investment so far is about $58, the price of the guitar, stings and a couple screws.

    better pics after the clean up and fix.

    Man, that's nice. You could flip that on Ebay for $500 easily.

    And it's black...

    You did very, very well! Enjoy...

    Keep it stock. You found a real bargain. I found the same model, an '83 SQ, and I payed $200 for it at a pawn shop and that was a good deal. You did even better! The quality of the Japan Squiers rivals anything coming out of the USA at that time.
