    Just picked up this used Made in India Squier. Ser# SH07118141 Has Duncan Designed pickups. Nice feel and sounds great. Anybody else have experience with these guitars?

    Usually I don't like Cherry Burst on Stratocasters. But that sure is sweet.

    Nice one. HNGD.

    No, it's India. The previous Vintage Modified series was made there with Indian Cedar bodies. Nice Strat!

    Seriously, dude, they were indeed made in India. Squier guitars are made by various manufacturers around the world under license from Fender and under Fender's supervision. The original Vintage Modified series from 2007 was manufactured in India for a short time. The current Vintage Modified guitars are built in Indonesia. Here's a pic of the back of one of the originals' headstocks:

    Hi,
    I have one. Just as good as a USA strat. Great build quality. Not sure of the history but the guy who set it up for me thought it might be a prototype. Looking to sell if anyone interested?
