This is a real Fender guitar made in Indonesia. The guitar is in excellent condition and sounds great! Play it or just hang it on your wall ! Fantastic item for any beer or musical instrument collector. Rolling Rock!!
This is NOT the cheaper Fender Affinity model OR the equally cheap Chinese and Korean models. The "Standard" Indonesian Fenders are well made value priced instruments with the same build quality as their Mexican and American made counterparts. It's got nice touches like felt washers under the strap buttons, beautifully made maple neck with a 22 medium jumbo fret rosewood fingerboard and skunk stripe. General specs are modeled on a late '60's Tele. Reverse-wound Alnico magnet coil pickups for humbucking mode with both pickups. A hot single-coil pickup in the bridge position provides bite for rocking leads. The neck position chrome-covered single-coil pickup sets the tone. Bridge is a 6 saddle string-thru body design. Nice jack socket and standard die-cast tuners. These make excellent starter guitars that are great players.
We've read of musicians that have swapped out only the pick-ups to 'upgrade' the ax to American Classic Tele sound standards... not too bad for the price!
The Green Metallic finish is deep and in great shape. One tiny surface scratch on the underside curve ( see photo ).
Agathis wood body ( an Alder type wood from New Zealand with good tone )

3-ply parchment pickguard

The Squier name was originally known for violins. These were some of the best instruments made in the States. In the early 1900s, Victor Squier started producing strings for violins, banjos and guitars. Fender assigned the Squier name to guitars in 1982. At that time, there were guitar manufacturers in Japan knocking-off Stratocasters and Telecasters. The Squier brand was created to compete in that market. Squier produced remakes of '50's and '60's Stratocasters and Precision Basses and the 1952 Telecaster. Some modifications were made to reduce costs, but these guitars are still sought after by collectors because of their quality.
