Before you message us saying hang on this is "only a Squier" ... Read on.. It Is not only a Squier its a lot more..It represents a unique moment in history, so, we feel, our price represents good value for money for this really collectable guitar. If you are looking at this listing then you probably know what you are looking at!!...If not.. Please read the listing...It will expalin everything to you.

No silly messages please.. No silly offers please.

This is a pre owned, 1992

FENDERSQUIER M SERIES HSS STRATOCASTER IN TORINO RED  

BUILT VERY PROBABLY IN 1991/92, IN SOUTH KOREA

serial number M2789005. (Located on the FRONT OF THE HEADSTOCK)

THIS EXAMPLE IS FINISHED IN, WE THINK, TORINO RED, WHICH NOW AFTER 21 YEARS, IS STILL A BRIGHT VIBRANT COLOUR with, we believe, the Original whammy bar.

THIS STRAT IS IN REALLY GREAT USED CONDITION..

 NOT MINT, NOT AS NEW.

 There are also lots of detailed pics further on down the listing.

THESE M SERIES SQUIER STRATS ARE VERY RARE AS THE PRODUCTION RUN WAS SHORT! THESE REAR LOADED GUITARS WITHOUT THE SCRATCHPLATE ARE ONLY SEEN WITH SERIAL NUMBERS BEGINNING M1 AND M2

THEY ARE USUALLY MISQUOTED OR MISTAKEN FOR A MEXICAN BUILD BUT THEY ARE MADE IN KOREA.

THEY ARE BASED ON THE E9 AND S9 PREFIXED SQUIER II's. THESE E9 AND S9 SQUIER II'S WERE PRODUCED ONLY BETWEEN October 1988 AND June 1990. 

THIS GUITAR IS A 1992. IT WAS BUILT JUST BEFORE THE M2 SERIAL NUMBERS WERE GIVEN OVER TO THE "STANDARD" LOOKING STRATS WITH THE SCRATCHPLATE. 

**IT IS NOT SURPRISING THAT THERE'S CONFUSION WHEN FENDER SQUIER LISTED THE  MIK SQUIER II E9 AND S9 STRATS AS BEING MODEL  033-6000 IN THE 1989  CATALOGUE  AND... THEY ALSO LISTED THE INDIAN MADE SQUIER II HSS AS BEING MODEL 033-6000 IN THE 1988 CATALOGUE SAME MODEL NUMBER ..COMPLETELY DIFFERENT DESIGN BUILT IN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.THIS MODEL HAS NO STAMP IN THE POCKET NOR ON THE NECK. THEY REALLY DIDN'T REALISE OR CARE THAT IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT YEARS LATER TO DETERMINE THE EXACT GUITAR THAT YOU OWN! 

THIS IS NOT A SQUIER GUITAR IN ANY SENSE OF THE TERM AS WE KNOW IT TODAY. 

PLEASE READ ON...

OK... back to this specific guitar...Many People look at these guitars as the "cheaper end" of the Squier Range built after all, with a plywood body, as opposed to a "solid bodied"  Squier that we know today.

Well look at these pics taken in the Ensenada Plant in Mexico.

   

These bodies are all laminate in their construction , slabs of wood glued together with a vaneer added to them. THEY ARE ACTUALLY NOT SOLID WOOD BODIES.

They are not much different, in theory, to the Plywood constructed bodies from 91/92. 

The Plywood was covered with a really thin layer of plastic type material so that the surface would be durable, provide a smooth surface to apply paint and not dent too easily. That's why these Plywood bodies are also referred to as Laminate bodies.

 Remember that wood was in short supply back then so the plywood construction was favoured for the Squiers of this period. The point that I am making here is that the guitar cannot be pigeon holed as "not as good" because its made of ply. Tonally there is little difference really to the laminated glued block Mexican bodies in our opinion.

This  M2 guitar is tonally really great in fact. It has lovely resonance and sounds nice and warm played "unplugged". Whats more the neck on this Guitar is absolutely fabulous to play on and Gorgeous to look at. FAR FAR superior to lots modern Mexicans that we've had in.. and we've had a lot!. 

It has the 21 frets and a lovely Rosewood Fretboard , 12 " Radius. Scale Length is 25.5", Nut Width is 1.625" (41mm) .  Volume and tone dials are knurled chrome and the circular jack socket is mounted on the lower edge. 

Korean Hardware finishes the Job. The tuners are basic to look at but hold tune well and the pickups are wired through a 5 way switch as "usual" on a Strat.  The Humbucker sounds awesome, it can be overdriven to a real growl or be played bright and articulate when clean. The two Korean Alnico staggered Pole Single Coils provide various degrees of  Mellow Warmth thru the switch options and provide the Classic Strat solo sound.

If I were building a "Parts O Caster" guitar, I would happily pay £150/£200 just for a neck like this. The quality is there to be seen and felt.  The lacquer is beautiful,  the dark rosewood board is lovely.

There are a few blemishes as we have said and photographed but nothing that affects the collectability of this unusaul Stratocaster.. really this M Series Squier is a moment in Fender history, it's a collectors dream and really rare..Rare doesn't always mean valuable but these guitars were built for such a short period. Maybe "Unusual" could be an accuarate adjective, but either way it's a really interesting instrument.    WITH JUST A FEW AGE RELATED DINKS AND REALLY LIGHT SCRATCHES. WE HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED AND SHOWN THE WORST OF THESE BUT REALLY, EVEN THESE ARE PRETTY INSIGNIFICANT AS THE GUITAR IS 21 YRS OLD.. 

There are some age related dinks on the edges in a couple of places, There is a small chip on the base on the front and a tiny chip on the underside of the neck pocket. We have tried to photograph them all for you to see. There are lots of ultra fine swirls from being cleaned and polished for 21 years.

We do try to describe as accurately as possible but .. dont expect a guitar in absolutely mint condition or as new. It's 21 years old...Thats why we've uploaded so many pics....please examine carefully and make sure that you are happy before buying.

PICS COMING VERY SOON.
