Squier MIJ Silver Series Stratocaster SST33 Sunburst 1993/94
Squier SST33 Silver Series Strat, made in Japan in 1993/4 in sunburst. The Silver Series heralded a return to Japanese manufacturing for Squier, and were very well received at the time owing to the excellent build quality from the legendary Fujigen factory. This one is sporting the classic 3-tone burst and a tasty rosewood slab fretboard, a classic combo if ever there was one. The slim, satin finish neck is very co-operative and befitting of a far privier guitar; this is a very easy player. The classic Strat spank, sparkle and chime are all there in spades. If you're looking for a brilliant quality Japanese Strat to fill a gap in your collection or as an excellent base for mods, this is surely going to hit the mark.
