$120. This one has seen some love, but plays great and sounds even better. Frets look like hell, but sound much better than they look. Light and resonant.

I have an SQ already that I LOVE, so seeing another one, I was pretty sure I would take it no matter what.

Fretboard has serious dirt on it.

More pics soon. These are just the Craigslist pics.

For $120 this is a steal, dirt or no dirt. For around 20 bucks you can get a Fender kit with knobs, pickup covers and back plate that'd spruce her right up.

Cool guitar congrats.

I got my hands today on a neck of a 1990 Squier that needs some TLC but I'm sure I'll give it a good home.

Speaking of Squier necks, take a look at the logo and compare "Squire" with what it actually says.

Yeah, sorry. That was autocorrect, not me, I promise.

I think it may have tele bridge pups in the neck and bridge. Can't wait to take it apart and look inside!

Took off the neck. Date is 10-15-83.



Looked under the pickguard. The bridge and neck pups are Schecters. They look like a standard strat pup cover would not fit over them (probably why they were painted white).
