Have a look. Made 1997 in Korea. Guess that where the golden Years in Squierland.

Hard to tell just looking at it and not playing it. But I’ve played some great Squier necks over the years, so I do believe they have the ability to produce one.

Hell, I’ve always been a fan of the CV necks. Yeah, they’re super lacquered up which isn’t totally my preference, but I can walk into any store and have an enjoyable and easy time playing one. I’ve found them to be consistently really good.

I'm not too picky as it comes to neck sizes and profiles, but still think my 2018 SQ CV Blonde Tele has an incredible one. A slim and fast playing neck I'm totally comfortable with.

Hard to beat a 2014 flamed neck!

Somewhere out on that horizon
I bought a Squier II Contemporary Strat (late 80s - early 90s is my guess) at GC some years back for 80 bucks. The guitar was crap - plywood body, weak pickups, horrible electronics - but the neck was sublime, so I bought the guitar figuring I'd be able to put the neck to use on something at some point.

It ended up on this parts Tele. Even though it's pretty much all cheap parts (except for the bridge pickup which is 60s vintage Fender), it's one of the best playing guitars I've got.

I started a thread on another forum about how much I like E series Korean Squier necks from the late '80s/'90s.

These are both '89s that I used on partscasters. Upgraded nuts and tuners. The color has aged nicely. As good as Squier necks get in my opinion. The Chinese Classic Vibe necks are very nice too.

YES! The Korean squier II necks are amazing. Unfortunately too many people know it these days. I picked one up years ago, a red strat with ply body. I upgraded the tuners and used it for a build. I'm always on craigslist waiting for those to pop up, they hardly ever do.

I have a 1989 Korean Squier Tele that I Esquire'd. Really nice neck on this, though it might benefit from some fret work.



I really like the neck on my Vintage Modified Jazzmaster, too.

I too have an 87-88 MIK Squier Tele. The neck is great, and has aged to a nice tint. My only complaint is the glossy neck. I scotch brite'd it years ago, so it players better, but still can't get any wear patterns. I think that guitar is too nice to mess with, so I recently bought an Affinity MII Squier Tele, and I'm going to replace everything on it including the squeal. Starting with an unfinished Allparts neck and a Tusq nut that I'm going to nitro.

I like this one. Yeah, it's not a Squier, but I didn't see that as a qualification for entry into this discussion :cool:

I refretted it with stainless steel wire. Plays slicker than an ice cube skittering across a hockey rink.
