1996 made in China Squier Strat.
S# 665835 6.5 lbs
This is early Chinese production. They made these with FULL SIZE ALDER Strat body as opposed to new Squire's with smaller bodies. Nice maple neck with 1/4" thick rosewood fretboard. Heavy duty 5-way switch. Read reviews by googling these special Squire Strat's with NC serial numbers and the 1996 model is the most sought after due to its high quality.
The 'NC Squiers are excellent guitars. Real sleepers. IMO they are basically superior to most all made since, except for the very top end models, Full size body, wider, flatter, thinner neck, 43.2mm at the nut.
Excellent sounding ceramic pickups, better than my 02 standard by many miles. More comfortable too.
I have read much positive commentary in regards to these and I agree. In addition to having 22 frets, the fretboard is very slightly wider than my MIM strats. They play really nicely and I am able to adjust the intonation on them very well, and it stays. They feel stable to me, moreso than my MIM's. They seem very solid and, for the most part, well made. I favor these over all of my MIM strats. The guitar was never used outside studios! No gigging ! Has small "nick" on front and one very light scratch on rear! Neck is arrow straight! Frets are like new!
