    No that was a joke as my title in my profile, it has NOTHING to do with giving advice or asking for help on this forum, it was a private joke....we're here to help! Why so negative?

    I have changed it now to 'Squier-A-Holic' :)

    Why did you assume my Custom Title was about you??? :( I'm sorry!

    Ah that’s funny. Simple misunderstanding. I was so confused reading the thread. Tuss, Guitarmageddon is always a great and friendly source for MIK Squiers.

    This guitar has one odd quality— playing it unplugged on the couch it is loud and pleasant and great to sing with. Nearly as good as just having an acoustic

    Man I think you overpaid for that guitar. I have seen several of these VN2-VN5 serial number Squier's going for $75 or so online and on my local CL. Like Ryan said they are plywood bodies, have the very unreliable trapezoid tuners and very budget ceramic pickups. Not knocking squiers as a whole or this guitar in particular just saying there is no way I would pay $145 for it. There was a guy selling a fiesta red Classic 50's on my local CL for $250 earlier, course it sold in about 2 hours, but that is way more guitar for only $100 more.

    Many of these have quite nice necks.
    My CN2 MIK had the dreaded tuners and the thinner plywood body, but a maple neck I preferred to later CIC Squier necks.
    After playing a boat-anchor like my MIA, a lightweight Strat has a certain appeal...

    My experience is the Korean Squiers have great necks. Where I am, used Affinities run $100, your guitar is considerably nicer than those for only $45 more. I feel that's a more relevant comparison than somebody else scoring an unusual and sweet deal on the other end of the continent. It's not likely you could get a neck as nice as your Korea Squier for under $100.

    If it feels good in your hands and makes noises you like, play it, enjoy it, love it. There's nothing wrong with plywood for an electric guitar body (with an opaque finish). And there's nothing wrong with modding it, either.

    I don’t care at all if I overpaid $50. I went in there ready to pay 600 for a Standard Tele or Strat but did not really want to do that yesterday at least. I’m down in LA from Seattle visiting my son and I miss my guitars at home so I just wanted something fun for while I’m here that was perfect. They had a 2008 les Paul studio faded with case for $549 and I may go buy that tomorrow it was pretty great. Also a GC has a vsr Ash Telecaster used for $398 and I WANT it but it’s not available til 6/1

    I bet you get $145 worth of use out of it.

    If I bought a set of fender vintage tuners is it something relatively easy to install?

    Yes. You will probably have a small hole on one side that you may have to cover but I did it. I replaced the traps with some import vintage and it took about ten to fifteen minutes. If the holes that you put the tuners through are too small, just take a flathead screwdriver and turn it around in there till the width is right.
