(SOLD) Squier Stratocaster Silver Series 3-Tone Sunburst SST33 1993/94
Squier SST33 Silver Series Strat, made in Japan in 1993/4 in classic 3-tone 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 has had a black guard installed, giving it a slightly meaner look that pops nicely against the finish and white knobs/covers. The dark rosewood slab board is in great shape, it thickens up the tone nicely and feels great under the fingers. These are exceptional guitars for the dollar, it's crazy how good they are for how little you pay. Grab a bargain!
