1983 Squier Japan ST-552 SQ Series HH Contemporary Stratocaster (Candy Apple Red)
Made alongside the JV series, this is a Squier Japan SQ series ST-552 model that was part of the Contemporary series of guitars made "For the Metalist, By the Metalist".
Full Candy Apple aesthetic with a C shape maple neck and a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard (10" radius, 25.5" scale length, medium jumbo frets). Two Dragstar humbuckers with a three way toggle give a real Les Paul sound, master volume and tone controls for simplicity. 6-point Stratocaster tremolo with Fender stamped saddles.
Received a full basic setup and service prior to listing, neck is beautiful and plays super smooth, plenty of life left in the frets. Good cosmetic condition on the top with some rash/scrapes on the back as pictured.
