Sonic blue body. Made at either the Tōkai Gakki or Dyna Gakkiu Plant in Japan between 2002 and 2004 (serial number is Q + 6 digits). Bought in 2005 as an addition to my collection so apart from checking it out when I bought it (and again today to ensure it still works as it should!), a few hours studio work and an appearance in one video it has either been either hanging in my music room or living in a gig bag. It has never been gigged.

This guitar is almost mint with no marks or dings to the body, neck or headstock and no buckle rash (Note: I would only grade a guitar as mint if it was totally unused but this example has had so little use it is effectively just that). It has retained its vibrant blue colour and not faded to ‘surfoam green’! There is a slight scuff on the chrome plate below the stop tail and a few hairlines on the control plate. The pickup slide switches give a range of sound options. Set up with low action. Fully functional and unmolested. It needs new strings!

The guitar has a basswood body with a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. It has a single volume control, single tone control, one neck singlecoil and a bridge humbucker. These guitars were made by Fender Japan and the quality is on par with Fender branded CIJ MIJ guitars. The guitar was designed by Kurt Cobain and the Fender custom shop and intended as a hybrid of the Fender Jaguar and Mustang guitars. It was in production initially for a very short time (1996-98); a reissue was made in the early 2000s. 

CASH on collection from Dunstable, Beds (3 miles from junction 11 on M1). Any questions, either ring me on 01582 609131 or email me on If you need more photos, just ask. Sensible offers given consideration.

The Squier lineup was augmented in 1996 with Affinity and Pro Tone/Vista series guitars and basses. Entry-level Affinity Series instruments were straightforward, basic Stratocaster, Telecaster and Precision Bass guitars in black, red and white. Next came the existing Standard Series, and at the top of the line were the new Pro Tone models, fine instruments with special touches (aged plastic parts, shell pickguards, painted headcaps, etc.) that appealed to the growing number of Squier players who preferred to upgrade their instruments with after-market parts. 

Higher-end options such as transparent finishes on ash bodies and gold hardware began to drive Squier prices up and elevate the brand perhaps a bit too close to Fender and Fender Japan during this brief era.
