Squier Stratocaster Silver Series Black SST33 1993/94
Squier SST33 Silver Series Strat, made in Japan in 1993/4 in black-on-black. 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 remarkably good order, there's a couple of minor marks but it's basically unscathed. The black-on-black with maple look is classy and clean, it's a no-nonsense guitar that's dressed for business. This plays brilliantly: the neck is moderate in profile with a sweet satin finish, it's very easy to like. You get a whole lot of tasty Strat tone for not many dollars... can't argue with that!
