1984 MIJ Squier Stratocaster in Camasrillo CA for $275

Here is a seller offering a 1984 Squier Strat that has a big headstock, 3-bolt neck and bullet truss rod just like the 1970's era guitars.  This is from the period when FMIC had been purchased by the employees and they didn't have the Corona plant up and running yet so Japan production was a big part of their business.  I've owned a  few Japanese Fender Strats from this period and they can be pretty nice - especially the necks.    Note that this is not a JV Squier (Japanese Vintage series).  

The hardware and wiring is usually hit or miss so it helps to look at them carefully - edxpecailly things like the saddles, the bridges and the biggest culprits are the VOL and tone pots.  However, as we all know - those items are fairly easily replaced.   I see MIJ Squiers going for quite a bit more than this on eBay.  Some sellers are even asking this much money for just a neck.  Either way might be worth checking this out.

I am Selling my Vintage made in Japan 1984 Fender Squire plays amazing. Or I will trade for a bass of equal quality. This vintage guitar comes with the original owners manual that you will have a hard time finding anywhere. This is a good one and has the SQ serial number, and is a Fender 70s Reissue with a nice maple neck with large headstock and has the alnico pickups like the American Strats and some of the JV Squires so it sounds amazing also has the 70s 3 bolt neck and bullet truss rod and big block trem. Plays and sounds better than some American Fender Stratocasters out there. Comes with a really nice heavy duty carry Bag and the original owners manual. First $275 cash firm If you find a cheaper one of these buy it cause this is a great deal. Give me a call at

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.
