Squire tele fender dating
Zakstar: If it was made in China it is a Squier by Fender and not a Fender Telecaster.If the serial number prefix is "CGF" as you indicated, that is not a Squier by Fender as Squier serial numbers prefixes for China are two letters with the exception of "CXS" per my references.However, it is true that Squiers by Fender are good student guitars and are most generally of medium quality. Must be dead if you are digging up old stuff and doing a re-pack.Nothing wrong with a Squier, but lets face it, you get what you pay for. I would agree with you, I thought the modern player just as good as the corona tele's.
In DESPERATE need of a re-fret or stoning tho, so if you know anyone reputable...
I've left it totally original, in fact, in lives in the case!
3 Way pickup selector fitted, but comes with a 5 way if you want to de-solder the three way...
I've tried a couple and thought they were very nice guitars and certainly better value for money than anything made in Japan, Mexico or the US. Fender's top end guitars are manufactured in the U.
S., Japan, and Mexico and are made with much better materials, hardware and electronic components installed than Squiers made in China.
