Squier MIJ Silver Series Stratocaster SST33 Sunburst 1992
Squier SST33 Silver Series Strat, made in Japan in 1992 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 in great shape; there's a few little marks but for a guitar that shortly turns thirty, it's looking tip top. The neck is awesome: slim and round like a '62 style Strat, slick satin finish, arrow straight and featuring some gorgeous streaky ochre and choc rosewood; it feels terrific. The tone on these leaves some pretty expensive guitars feeling embarrassed: it punches so far above it's weight it's a little obscene. We love these around here and they never last long... you'll love it too.
