This very rare model from 1989 was given to me in Tokyo by a friend. Made in Korea Squier II with S-serial number. The S series means it was Samick as the manufacturer. These were called the Contemporary Stratocaster and were only made from 1988-1992. I had it modified at Big Boss ESP Shop in Ochanomizu Tokyo in 2016. It features a Floyd Rose locking tremolo with Gotoh pegs. The pickups are all Seymour Duncan with a JB humbucker, a Quarter Pounder in the middle position and a little 59 in the neck. All the electronics, switches and knobs have been replaced at Big Boss with ESP parts. The strap buttons have been replaced with Schaller strap locks. The maple neck is straight and looks beautiful. The frets are in great condition at 70-80% remaining. There is a very small area that has scratches on the back of the body and one little ding and a little scuff mark on the side near the input jack. Other than that it’s in excellent condition.
This guitar looks more like a Charvel than a strat and absolutely plays and looks killer. Since all the work and setup was done by ESP, you know it plays and sounds a dream!
