    Hey guys! I have this guitar since 2005. Nitro lacquer ( cracked. I love it). Sound wonderful, looks great. Alder body, maple vintage C shape neck. But, the other guy erased what was written on the headstock and the serial should be, there's a #560 written with pencil. It has Wilkinson tuners. Check the video

    Welcome to the forum - this is a fake Fender....it's a low end Squier Bullet Strat with a Fender logo applied, and refinished body.....those are not Wilkinson tuners they are the original cheap Trapezoid type.....would never be on a real Fender.....

    It's possible. I apllied the fender logo, it's very cheap here in Brazil. I removed one of the tuners and is written "Jin ho" on the back. It's Korean and the wilkinson's maker but not a Wilkinson really. I thought about it's a squier but I've never seen a squier with a 22mm neck, that thin fingerboard and that contour on the back. I had one squier and was totally different. Have you seem a squier like this one?

    22 fret neck? YEs, early Affinity small headstock, made in china or indonesia from 1997 to 1999

    So...you put a Fender logo on it...then you come here asking for us to identify it knowing it's not real??

    No. It came to me with nothing written on the head, so I put the logo. And it's 22 milimiters neck, I mean the thickness, it's very fat neck, reminds the old guitars, 60s. I removed the neck, there's a letter "G" written in a blue pilot pen

    Fat neck and thin fingerboard. I never seen a squier neck like this and never with this contour on the back like the 62 for example.

    It's a Squier from the late 1990s.....100% for sure. They were known for thicker chunky necks. 22mm at the first fret is also not that thick....that's .866"
