    Hello! I have Korean Squier Strat (SN: CN6021008) since I was very young. This is so comfortable guitar and sounds nice, but I don't any features of this guitar. Can anybody help me to find out the main specs of it, especially a type of body wood...it's the basic question for me)

    Welcome to the forum!!

    CN6 = 1996 you're right....this is just before the Pro Tone Squier Strats....more than likely the body wood is basswood, but it might be plywood / laminate....

    It's either 7.25" or 9.5" fretboard radius....and it will have vintage frets....

    ceramic pickups...

    Playability of the neck is the main reason why I love this strat. But a type of wood is basically very important for me) maybe the photo help to understant..[​IMG]

    Only way to know for sure what the wood is and if it's solid wood or not is to take the neck off the body....

    I wouldnt worry about it...it looks like solid wood...could be agathis or basswood by the looks of it...

    the whole notion of 'tone woods' for electric guitars is kind of a joke, it matters on acoustic guitars - not much of a difference with electric solid body...

    Instead of taking the neck off you can also just pop the jack plate out.

    Yeah, but it's no plywood. What's the fretboard radius? I assume more than 9,5".
