    I am not a big NGD poster but this is cool / something that you don't see a whole lot of MIJ Squiers around.

    I got it from its original owner, and it's an excellent guitar. The guitar has very many quality aspects to it. The tremolo for example has a thicker baseplate and nicer saddles than even my 91 MIJ Fender, and this one came with Gotoh tuners. I am suspecting that the bridge IS Gotoh as well. The previous owner had Seymour Duncan's installed in it and it sounds good l.

    The guitar has been heavily used as a thirty odd year old guitar should be, has the 'well used' vibe to it. Frets are in decent shape. All it really needs is a quick crown and a new switch when I get around to it. Neither are a big deal.

    This is a cool one. It can stay. IMG_20211022_002224_795.jpg IMG_20211022_002225_234.jpg IMG_20211022_002225_272.jpg

    I had the Contemporary version of this with a bridge hum. Killer guitar - I should never have sold it.

    It's black. It's a strat. It's a home run after only two boxes checked. HNGD!!!

    It's definitely a nice guitar. I think that this MIJ Squier is possibly better than the MIJ Fender that I have. They are pretty close in just about everything. Regardless I enjoy both.

    Thats a beauty. And the natural relic'ing has already begun, that thing is going to look even better in another 30 years.

    The E series stuff is legit from what I've played/owned. Usually a solid buy as ong as nothing is wonky on them. Congrats!

    The MIJ E Series is definitely legit. It's really no better/worse than the MIJ Fender Strat I have. Damn nice guitar.

    This one may be the new bar hopper I recon.
