I bought this 1990 Squier Strat second hand in 1991 in bright red, and with the addition of an Ibanez V2 pickup in the bridge (as fitted to the Ibanez Destroyer & Iceman of the period), used it as my main live guitar right through the 90’s. I added the white cellulose spray job & had a Phil Boot refret around 1993.
In 2014 I started a building a new body from scratch with a 2 piece slab of Cuban mahogany, adding a Mapa Burl veneer & finished in a classic late 50’s feel sunburst.
