1987 MIJ Fender Squier E-series Strat w/ USA Case in Morgantown WV for $295

This nice Squier is very similar to a 1950's RI with its Maple neck, 8 screw single ply guard and hard to find Fiesta red finish. The only giveaway is the headstock with it's roller trees and Fender MIJ tuners.

It even comes with a nice Fender USA molded case. Quite the deal, really.

I spoke to Ken, the seller of this guitar, and it was still available as of Feb 17th. He says he doesn't wan to ship it so only contact him if you are a local buyer or can drive to meeet him somewhere to make the sale.

  1. I love your blog, thanks for doing it!

  2. I would also like to say that I love your blog as well! And my understanding of the early mij strats (sq, jv, e) is that there were no mij guitars sold as anything but squier from ~83-85, and whereas with jv's many of them recieved american hardware not all of them did... sounds like all excess stock from fullerton was shipped to japan, and that the branding squier mainly denoted non era authentic hardware (tuners, trees, and some were fitted with system I tremolos from the mij contemporaries). Keep up the good work!


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
