hi Squier users!

I have this red Squier Strat...problem is that it has no serial no. and as I checked further I found out that its a Squier Affinity series (based on the decal on its headstock).  There's no marking where and when it was made/manufactured...

hope you can help me guys on "identifying" my Squier Affinity Strat....I forgot I bought it from a japan surplus shop...

will post pics later...
AFAIK, Affinities are made in china. and about the serial number, early china squiers have them on stcker labels that are easily removed AFAIK din. hope this helps. :-D

Correct. I've seen Squier Strats and Teles in Perfect Pitch that had no serial numbers on them. Those Squier SE100 packs that has the Squier that is a cross between an affinity and a standard strat with the little 10 watt squier amplifier don't have serial numbers on them either.

Lots of the earlier China models like mentioned above had them on a sticker on the back of the headstock or down by the neck joint. They looked butt ugly, so most people just took them off.

Be well,

oh I see, so my Squier Affinity is truly made in China...by the way, when you said "early china squier" what is the production year/s of these guitars? and do you happen to know the tone woods they used for these "early china squier" because it was kinda heavy compared to my other Strat...

My understanding is that the later model Indonesian and early Chinese strats were made of agathis. The Japanese, Korean and early Indonesian models were made of Alder. Not all Affinity strats are made in China. Affinity Strats have been around since the late 1990's and I believe were initially made in Indonesia.

The difference between an affinity and a standard is in the thickness of the body. The affinity strat is much thinner than the standard strat.

I have been told that the new strats, made in China are made of basswood.

That I am not sure about. I think most of the Squiers had eleven screw pickguards, but someone could have changed that to get a more vintage look out of it.

yeap, i agree with what doc said. i was thinking the same thing. i guess the guys at the factory/ in manufacturing went for the vintage look approach. :-D hence the 8 screwholes. :-)
