I’m not going to be including late ‘80s Korean Squiers in this piece.I've now added a full study of the first Korean Squiers, which you find in The Truth About... But suffice it to say that the ‘80s Korean Squiers were inherently and consistently inferior to their Japanese predecessors, and they had what I’d describe as ‘double-take’ retail prices.The early '80s 'JV Series' Squier Strats were undeniably amazing value for money, representing as they did the premium Fender Japan product in Europe, at a budget price.But not all JV Strats were created equal, and in my experience their appeal fluctuated quite markedly.The Fender Contemporary Telecaster models used the same tremolo systems as the Fender Contemporary Stratocaster models.bridge in terms of intonation and string height adjustments.
What I find most interesting of all, is the extremity of opposing views on the early Korean Squier Stratocasters, first produced in 1987.When CBS sold Fender to its current owners in 1984 there was a transitional period from 1984 to 1987 with limited Fender USA production resulting in mostly Fender Japan and leftover stock being sold.There are also Fender Contemporary Telecaster models with HSS or HH pickup configurations and switches for selecting pickup options.Some say they were excellent; some say they were absolute rubbish.Very few guitars have polarised opinion in quite such a fashion on the basis of their quality. i am having a hell of a time dating it and finding its value. I believe i have 1993 Fender Stratocaster Floyd Rose Squier Series Guitar. Is there anyone able to tell me a little more information and maybe approx price in today's ... It blows real Strats away and it's playability is awesome. good morning, I have a squier stratocaster made in fugi-gen japan by fender N024334.
