My friend is trading me his old squire bullet (Just as a beater), and I know the reputation that these things have gotten, but how am I able to figure out what it's made of? Some people say that it's plywood, and others say that it's basswood. Can I just check the serial #? I'd really like to avoid stripping the paint off it.

I think those chinese squiers might be agathis, but I dunno.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Usually they are agathis or alder. I have seen a few that are basswood though. But I have NEVER seen a plywood squier.

I "inherited" an early 2000's Squier Strat from my cousin (I'm honestly not sure of the model), and the body is plywood. The neck is one of the most comfortable I've played though, believe it or not...

a lot of squier's are very playable and great for starter to mid range guitars for the money. they get a bad rap but usually a quick pickup swap makes them pretty tight and great sounding guitars.
