Dating fender guitar cases alquerque online dating
I am very curious as to whether your MIJ there is a solid wood or ply?
I could very certainly be wrong, but I would bet a shiny penny it's ply...
During the 1980s Fender was making some very nice guitars under the Squire name. It truly rivals the MIJ Fender guitars of that time.
What -may- have happened is that Fender had Fuji Gen make "cheaper" Squiers so as to create a more substantial difference between the instruments and their respective lines.
Maybe the next time I put a new set of strings on, I'll remove the neck and see if there's a pencil written serial number.
If you want to see a 1987 MIJ Squire E series Stratocaster, take a look at mine.
Whether this is simply due to the wood used or how the respective instruments were taken care of, I can't really say specifically but the '92 MIK was clearly an inexpensive entry level guitar where as my '85 MIJ is a very serious instrument.
Now I do have to add here that Fuji Gen does have a well earned reputation for making very good instruments.
