So, I got a Fender Strat Squire as my first guitar 9 years ago and since I got a new one its been collecting dust. My friend said it was weird for a Squire to have flame maple and I was wondering if it was rare or something or just normal, I'm clueless O_o. Thanks for the help.
it does seem rare for a squire to have a flamed maple neck but im not an expert so im not really sure
My son's Squire Strat looks like it has a bird's eye maple neck. The fingerboard is quite spectacular. I've always thought it's quite beautiful for a <$150 guitar. So, is it rare? Apparently not. By way of comparison, I have a fairly expensive Fender Custom Shop Tele with a AAAA flamed maple neck. It's also quite beautiful, but cost several times what the Squire cost.
Wait is this a Fender Squier or a Squier by Fender?
Its a Squire by Fender
I have a Squier by Fender P-bass, Made In China that has a beautiful flamed maple neck on it. Got it for like $100 even. 2nd most comfortable bass i've ever played (number one is an Ernie Ball Music Man Sting Ray haha)
Those who acquired those gorgeous Maple necks are very lucky! Some Fenders (other than CS) don't even have such figuring.
