1984 Squier Stratocaster from mastermorya

He and I made a trade and the guitar arrived today. It is in excellent original shape as far as I can tell. It even came with the hard case and original 1984 receipt. Pretty cool! The neck profile is really awesome. Pickups sound good. The bridge is a tad bright, but I love the neck and middle pickup sounds. :) Here are pictures. :D

That's interesting, that's almost the exact price that my MIM Squier Fat Strat cost in 1998. Taking inflation into account, that made the MIJ Squier about 50% more expensive than the MIM one 14 years later (about $960 vs $660 in 2020 dollars).
