Hey

I've found this 1993 japanese squier strat for sale in my area. The guy whos selling it wants !150 for it, I know he's leaving the country soon so I've cheekily offered £100 pound if he doesnt get a better offer before he leaves. The thing is I know jap instruments are good as my tele is MIJ, and I know jap squiers of the 80s are great but not sure on the 90's or on the prices for them. could anyone tell me if its worth snapping up for £150?

I dont really need it but I love a bargain haha. At the minute its a blue that I'm not too keen on so I'd get it and sand it down and make a little project out of it

Thanks in advance for any help

I think it was the '93 domestic japanese squiers that were supposed to be better than american standards, but I can't say for sure. Like 85% sure though.

Bite his hand off for it. Seriously.
You could probably sell it and make a wee profit even at the price he's asking.

UPDATE: right so its not looking like hes gonna go for my 100 pound offer haha, the seller has given me a serial number which is N004216. Ive looked around but cant seem to find a definitive squier dating site so i was just wondering if anyone on here could tell me this is a legitmate squier japan serial number for 1993

Thanks
