    I trust your opinion about Squiers more than anybody else there is, and your knowledge about Fender Strats is right up there with anybody else. I'm seriously impressed by the way you can tell measurements from crappy photos.

    $125 for a MIM sounds too good to be true, but it's on the high end of the price range for a Squier and too much for one that's in lousy condition. OP was right to be asking.

    I had a 2018 that had the same kind of headstock etc. It was a great guitar, I think there were changes implimented in 2017 though.

    For $125 or whatever it was - that's a steal. I bought the 2018 for $320 and ended up selling it for $550.

    Then in that case you should use a free VPN in-browser website which will allow you to access the link......

    I'm really not that desperate to see ads. Nothing in this life is free...

    I wanted to add to this.

    I have seen this same guitar pop up and been sold twice since this post.

    I actually found this post seeking information regarding this guitar and the serial number led me here.

    How the logo looks on the thing is suspect as all get out...but everything checks out to be authentic as has been mentioned in this post.

    The oddest thing about this guitar which doesn't speak well of it is that it has been owned by at least 4 different people in the span of two months.

    The low price and the finish issues...Maybe its just not a player? or maybe its just an easy flip?

    If I had to guess either intonation or neck issues maybe.

    I find it fascinating...

    ***sits back waiting for it to be sold again***
