Mystery Strat!

About a year or two ago, I bought an old beaten up Squier Strat on an impulse from a small auction. It cost around 45 if I remember correctly. It had a Schaller Floyd Rose Tremelo, a humbucker in bridge, and two single coils. Its completely black, and wood on the headstock looks quite old.

The most distinguishable thing I can see is that the jack input is not on the front, as it is with most strats, but is circular, and on the side :S

Does anyone know why this Strat might be this way? It's definitely old, was there a period when Squier made then this way? Is there anything else I could describe that would help find out when it was made etc? Cheers

Are you able to put pics up from an iPod?
Can you do it via Instagram ?

That thing in the back that keeps your Floyd from being at a 30 degree angle off the body.
