Fender American Select HSS Strat
Fender Korea "E Series" Squier Strat.. Hot Red!
Fender Squier -- E Series with Silver Logo from Korea.
THESE MIK E SERIES ARE OFTEN COMPARED TO MIJ STRATS
Great MIK Silver Labeled Squier Strat, in Traditional Strat Configuration, with 3 single coils and vintage tremelo bridge...White three ply pickguard and traditional Strat knobs and five way switch. Gleaming red body with some light metal-flake sparkle under lights.
This guitar has been played, but it is in good cosmetic condition, with minor playing wear, pick haze, a few nicks and some small surface scratches. The plastic tip is missing from the 5 way switch, but this is easily replaced. There is a small scratch through the paint in the contoured body recess on the back of the body, and some edge nicks in the wood on the rear lower edge of the headstock. I think that these flaws might be visible in the photos below. Despite these minor nicks, and light wear, this guitar looks nice. It is in very good condition for a guitar that is more than 20 years old.
The maple neck has a skunk stripe and looks very good with a dark rosewood finger board. This neck also has the adjustment for neck truss at the headstock like most modern Strats. There is some fret wear at D, G & B strings on the first few frets, along with the chips on the back edge of the headstock, but otherwise this is a very nice neck. By the way, some people say that many of the E Series MIK Strats may have been built with MIJ parts and necks, and this one looks like it might be one of those, as it looks and feels very much like the neck on my own 1980's MIJ Strat
The Korean E Series Strats were built after some of the Fender Japan production got shifted to Korea. This group of MIKs are generally well regarded and well built, especially when compared to later Korean Strats and other import Squiers. The silver Fender label and configuration is the same look as the Japanese Squiers. This Strat has a similar look and feel to my own E series MIJ Strats. Great neck, which seems indistinguishable from the E Series Japan necks.
I got this guitar among a large group of instruments from the estate of a dealer and collector, and it has been in storage. I have not really played it, other than a quick look, but it looks to be complete and in very good shape. Please note that I have not taken it apart to check wiring and internals, but this looks original.
This will come in a gig bag, but I may be able to substitute a hard shell guitar case for a small added fee if the buyer is interested, Please ask.
