    Was that an A.O?

    Did you have the whole guitar or just the body?

    I’m curious why you would refin it, the A.O’s aren’t even that old yet

    Yes complete AO, I just don’t mess around. I want what I want, haha. I picked it up super cheap at a pawn shop. They had it priced as a American standard. So I figured since MJT is really good to me with discounts on the 10 or so guitars I send them why not send them this one. I ended up selling it and making a profit

    I originally thought the bridge might be a shecter

    Im not sure what it is now

    I didn’t think it would be so hard to narrow down

    Here’s my squier Strat as it currently stands. I bought it from a woman on Craigslist maybe 5 years ago for $35. I don’t know the exact age of it, because The serial number was on a sticker I believe which was gone before I picked it up. I wanna say mid-2000s. It originally had a black finish which I removed.
    I painted it gold, then blue over the gold. I trashed the original pickups; they were rusty and had soda or something spilled in them. It had a single bridge humbucker for a while, then a different set of cheap ceramic Strat pickups, then the neck went on a different body and the Strat body languished for a year or two. Maybe a year ago I paired the original neck and body together again and I repainted it silver (all the paint was lacquer based) and tried checking it with some canned air, to mixed results as you can see. It flaked off more than it checked. I bought a Prewired pg with a set of Alnico pickups and slapped a few stickers on it and here it is. The neck has some dings, and I had to superglue one of the frets high up on the neck down, but it feels good and plays nice.
