    If the logo was any higher they’d have to reverse the headstock....

    I saw this guy at the gas station the other day and I swear his belt was under his arm pits. I bet this was his old project.

    Plus the "original contoured body" decal is in the wrong place.

    I can't help but wonder if the person just "centered" it on the headstock. Before the tuner holes were drilled.

    I prefer Gibson head-stocks better.

    "Reliced" in this case meaning "cheap paint and poorly sanding"
    Once I had myself a million, now I've only got a dime.
    Difference don't seem quite as bad today.
    With a nickel or a million I was searchin' all the time
    For something that I never lost or left behind.

    Squier's 60th anniversary? That would make it the year 2042 that the guitar was built. That means this guitar probably travelled back in time which would explain some of the relicing.

    Strat's 60th or Fender guitars' 60th?

    Also iirc Squier was some company they snapped up and recycled... 19th century brand they bought and repurposed

    And that's an excuse for putting it in the middle of the headstock how?

    Most non-guitarists pay precisely 0 attention to guitar brands, and all but absolute beginners should be able to spot a fake. Why bother with this? Same with putting Fender logos on Warmoths

    Did you take basic math in school? You know like addition and subtraction?

    Perhaps you think that the current year is 2102?
