Squier Guitar Collection, a set on Flickr.
My Labor Day off-topic post. Here’s a few pictures I took today of my mid-late 80’s collection of Squier Stratocasters, all made in Japan.
Why Squiers? Well these are the guitars I could afford to buy when I was in college. I purchased an ’87 Stratocaster and only got the Squier because the difference between that and a “real” Fender was about $150–all the money in the world at that time to me.
It turns out that those E-series Squiers are actually really good guitars. I’d wager they’re probably better made than some of the Fender Strats you’d see at $800-$1,000 at Guitar Center today.
And because they’re cheap, I can get a few and build a bit of a collection. Will I get rich? No, but I feel like a kid every time I take one out to play.
