i've been looking for a cheap backup guitar and i've found this guy selling a squier strat silver series japan.

He says he bought off a friend 10 years ago and he is selling the squier now coz he got a deluxe strat.

Here's one of the pics

he's asking 175e for it.

Anyone has a clue of bodie's wood or if it is a fair price?

if its a japanese made squier then the price is fair as long as its in good shape. the neck looks a little worn in the pic. most likely ash or alder for the body.
