What is in the bridge position?

It also appears to be missing a locking nut.
They are nice guitars though.

Sorry i'm a beginner , by bridge position did you mean the bridge pickup ?

and please do you have any idea where i can buy a locking nut ?

It's probably from the "Contemporary Series" with that unusual tremelo unit, and the (removed) locking nut. I am no expert at all, but given the removal of the nut, you may want to check to see if the humbucker in the bridge is also a modification, as opposed to the stock pickup, whatever that may have been.

Here's a link to what yours might have looked like if it originally was all single-coils.

I'm assuming from the lack of tremolo bar and locking nut it has been converted to hardtail.
Which makes me wonder, why go through the extra expense to buy a strat with a locking, floating trem just to hardtail it?

OP, I bet that thing has a load of mods that won't be apparent straight away, seems you have found something really unique there congrats!

bridge pickup isn't stock. locking nut for trem has been removed. I would only buy this if it were cheap despite it being (or at least appears) a mid 80s Japanese made squier. trem bar isn't standard so if it's missing could be an issue getting a replacement. not to sure how well trem will work without locking nut.

thank you for the link , the humbucker is a modification as you can see in the image , i think i'll replace it with a signle-coil one

in this case hard tail just means the trem is blocked so that it can't move. an actual hard tail strat is one that doesn't have a whammy bar at all. since many don't use the bar they block the trem from being able to move thus making it a hard tail.

^ yeah as it says here, hardtail is when the bridge is immobile.

Lots of people with tremolo equipped guitars convert to hardtail since they don't use the bar anyway and it improves tuning stability.

Decked is a better term than hardtail. Decked implies that it is a trem and it is forced to the body by the spring tension.

Yeah, perhaps I should have worded it better and said hardtail is the opposite type of bridge to tremolo that is immobile and has no bar straight from the get go.

It was late and I was tired :p

how do you know if it's hardtailed or decked ?

it means the same thing,. it just means it's not a working tremolo, it's blocked/decked/hardtailed/solidified.
