Hi, I have a red bullet fender squier stratocaster electric guitar, it was made in korea and it's serial number is S1003417 (made in 1991-2 I believe). the guitar was bought 20-22 years ago in Albeniz Albacete Spain and I am very happy with it. I am finally progressing on the refit of my Fender Squier II Stratocaster. I purchased a black "Made in Indonesia" Squier P Bass by Fender, with a black pickguard that has a serial number starting with "PN." It has "Licensed by Schaller" (Typical P Bass looking) machine ...
As you will see, I sell a load of guitars for one guy doing this on the side.
So, you can't afford that '54 Strat, or that '64, or even that '74 for that matter.
My intent with this site is to educate those who are on the hunt for that last affordable vintage Fender Stratocaster.
So, obviously a neck date, while being helpful in providing a date range of production, cannot be a definitive reference.
While there have been periods where dramatic changes have occurred, for example: the transition periods between Leo's Fender and the CBS years, as well as the transition between CBS' Fender and the current ownership, generally speaking, most models are feature specific and do not change from year to year..
At some point, Kennis Russell bought a used Stratocaster at his local guitar shop.
Within a few seconds, however, Russell—a guitarist who provides backing tracks, gear demos and reviews on You Tube—realized it was a fake."Someone had rubbed off the Squier logo from the headstock and put a fake Fender waterslide on it," Russell says."In this video I compare this fake Fender Strat to two 'real' U. Fender Strats, a Mexican Fender Strat and a Squier Strat.
