Went up north to visit some family in Santa Cruz and came back with this!


A Squier '51!


Came with a Gator case and a Schaller locking strap setup, I guess you'd call it. The strap and strap nut things? Never bothered with locking straps.


This thing plays fantastically for a squier, and im planning on truly raping it with mods in the future.

So I guess I'll ask you guys what you think it's worth first, cause I dont know what kind of deal i got.

looks good. Pics of the strap pegs? Schaller is pretty distinct in its look

I guess fire extinguishers have to be filled with something other than fire retardant now, because apparently that's offensive.


Watch my stream?

i've heard that a '51 is one of the better guitars squiers made in the past 10 years or so. they look pretty cool to

i had one, it had a great neck.

overall it's a great mod platform.

i agree with the $150-200 used, although stores blew them out for a lot less when they became discontinued iirc.

congrats.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Yeah i'm with gregs on that one. The neck is pretty killer on the 51's i used to have one. Felt like a guitar that cost way more then what i paid.

I'd have to agree with approximately $200 used.
It's a really nice guitar for that kind of money though - with a bit of TLC you can make it into something absolutely amazing.
Ceci n'est pas une signature.

It's one of the few guitars made recently that the value has actually gone up in the past few years. Originally, these things sold for less than $100US, now you'll be lucky to walk away spending twice that on one.

Also, TS, just so you know, modding it will greatly diminish the resale value.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

Thanks for all the feedback! I already love this guitar as much as my jackson, Im not sure if ill even be considering selling it, I dont see the value going up past $250 or so, and until i fall in love with a fender im going to stick with this baby, maybe change a few things that are reversible

I bought it for $150 by the way, so i guess i got a decent deal 'cause of the strap locks and case

i dont get why they would discontinue these though, they gathered such a following, i only wish i could have known when they were on blow out everywhere
and here's that strap lock pic
