What is the difference when the neck says squier in gold or black
I think the difference is in the paint. Ha!
Seriously though I’m interested too. I only have two and they are both gold
I don't know how "officially" true this is, but I'm lead to believe that it has to do with how close that model is to being "top of the line" (for Squier, anyway). So something like a Bullet or Affinity, which is as basic as Squier gets, will have the logo in black. I have a Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster and that logo is gold. I also have an '80's Koren Squier Tele where it's silver. Middle of the line, I guess?
I have a classic vibe that is in gold. And an affinity in gold.
Thought I had read once that China made was gold and Indonesia made was black. But not sure about that.
My VM with the gold is Indonesian.
conversation in contract shop somewhere in Asia," Let's change the logo color or size see how many people we can make crazy"
I've heard the same thing, but can't remember where (might have even been here). Both my Affinity and Bullet are black, but I've also seen Affinities in gold.
I dunno. All I can say is my "crappiest" Squier had the black, my best has the gold, and the one with the silver is so old and modded that it's not really fair to say.
The Chinese Affinity started getting gold lettering in 2013. Before that it was black. Don't know about all the others.
Yeah, it's not anything concrete... although as people have said, the lower models were usually plain black but they seem to change all the time, so I wouldn't read too much into it.
I’ve got two 2019 bullets, both Indonesian and both black. One 2019 Chinese classic vibe in gold. Which tells us....nothing.
