So I was given an old beat up squire to "repair" and use. Truth be told its not worth it to repair, but i opened it up and under the pickups was painted this symbol:

Just curious if anyone knows what this means, the person who gave it to me was a friend and respectable person, but apparently the seller was sketchy. Any ideas?

Hmm, that's neat, maybe the guitar is like in a secret order of guitars or something.
As long as it doesn't mean something dumb, I might paint it in my guitars' control cavities

I would imagine that it's probably just a marking from the factory where it was made. Check this out:




In the bridge pickup cavity in my Epiphone LP, there is a random "4" written. My Epi was made in Korea, not China, if that makes a difference. The "4" is under the lacquer, and so must have been done at the factory for some reason. I imagine yours is the same. Check if it's under the lacquer. If it is, then it's highly probable that it's just a marking used at the factory. If it's not, then it might have been applied by the previous owner (still may have been done at the factory, but less likely iff it's on top of the laquer). I think, because these cheap production plants bang out so many guitars every day, they probably go around drawing numbers on the blanks etc, so that the workers know what goes with what, etc.

Come to think of it, the underside of the pickguard on my new MIM Tele has a "J" written on it in pencil.
