Squier dating guitars
For starters, thing people love most about the Squier Strat guitar is the famous contoured body.
It feels exactly the same as the pricier Fender Strats. Everything from the classic headstock of the Squier Stratocaster to the placement of the 3 single-coil pickups is identical to its older brother.
All of that changed in 1982 when Fender introduced the Fender Squier series of guitars.
Fender produces their Squiers overseas (mostly in Asia) and use cost-efficient materials, which is why they are much cheaper than your average Fender.
The back of the body has some small cracks which upon close inspection do appear to just be in the paint. Pickup accuracy is especially important because it gives this Strat a different sound from modern instruments.
It's just a decent battered axe that has been relic'd naturally as opposed to having some guys in the Fender factory trying to re-create the finish artificially. It sounds great through a vintage style tube amp, and has a warm, narrow sound.
