Wow, kinda looks like a heavy metal one. I've never seen one like that either. Not sure about the pickups though ~ check the serial number.
Fender US Standard Strat '07
Epiphone Les Paul '94
Marshall MG100FX
Dunlop Cry Baby
Boss ME-70
Boss TU-2

s/n e937641 made in korea in 89 i think

that's what the headstock says allright...

I think it's one of the early Stagemasters, actually. Could just be a later Squier HM Strat, though... in anycase, it's a Squier HM strat design, that's about all there is to say. I think by '89 they were producing guitars in Korea, instead of solely in Japan, and had the "Squier II" series out, which was a more "contemporary" line... yours MAY be a Squier II, but then again, may not be. There isn't a whole ton of info about these old squiers floating around, I'm pretty much basing this on my own experiences.

edit, a little ebay searching, and I found this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Rare-1989-Squier-Heavy-Metal-HM-Strat-Made-in-Korea_W0QQitemZ120380518823QQcmdZViewItemQQptZGuitar?hash=item120380518823&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72:1205|66:2|65:12|39:1|240:1318|301:1|293:1|294:50

didn't bother google, though... might want to try that.

mine is a archtop the hm isnt,and the headstock is not the same.

it's not an archtop, anyway, it's a carved top. In anycase, I googled "1989 Squier" and look was the first 2 pictures that came up were!

further reading indicates that it's an "HM3"

Yeah, I've seen one too.
Didn't bother to buy it though, as the neck had been previously broken.

They're just a Squier HM series that copied the Ibanez S-Series, I believe.
