Very nice article 🙂 I have a Japanese Squier Strat I got 19 years ago (almost to the day), but after I moved on to Gibsons, it doesn’t see much action. I can’t really bring myself to sell it, as it was my first guitar, and I do really like the neck on it.
Hi Josh. I’m looking to buy a used squier standard strat, but I want one made in Indonesia and the one I’ve found locally was made in China. I noticed that the China neck isn’t as nice as other squier standards I’ve seen before. The frets are sharp on the sides of the neck and not dressed very well. I can work out the frets issue, but I’m concerned if there are any other quality differences between the Indonesia and China made squier standards? (pickups, tuners, bridge/saddles, intonation, etc.) Thanks.

Do you think this is a good buy? I have seen Squier strats for sale on ebay for as low as $85 but I do trust that this particular guitar has been well taken care of. Am I being taken advantage of or is he genuinely selling me a great guitar for a great price?
I am a 30 year old looking to begin playing the guitar. The only thing I know for sure is that I like the range and sound of the Stratocasters and I’m sure that this is the guitar for me. I have a co-worker that has a Squier Strat that he is offering to sell me for $150. He is a pretty stand up guy and has been playing the guitar for decades. He is looking to sell the Squier because it was his son’s guitar but the son never fell in love with playing. The guitar looks to be in great condition. He says it is Japanese made and he purchased it over 20 years ago. He says it would include a carrying case, amp plug (no amp) and strap.
