A fine pair of retro Squiers

I’ve slimmed down my guitar collection massively but still have a couple of Fender Squiers.

The first, the 1957 re-issue Stratocaster which I bought in 1985, is what I call my Buddy Holly guitar. It’s in sunburst and had a 3-way pickup sector switch (soon upgraded to a 5-way). It was assembled in japan with US pickups and has a lovely sound.

The second is the last of my Telecasters (Korean-made telecaster and Telecaster thin-line have gone to appreciative new owners). It’s a Cabronita vintage telecaster with a Bigsby. It has one tele pickup at the ¬†bridge and a Gretsch-type pickup at the neck. This is a bad boy.
