1 Dave_K 1 month ago Just Another Strat Another Trade. I had a Partscaster I didn't play because of its mega-sized frets (I kept squeezing the strings out of tune -- my bad I know). A pal had this 1989 Korean (Samick factory) Squier Strat he didn't play because he found the frets were too small for him -- so job done.Despite its 31 years, the Squier has hardly a mark on it. The neck is very good and the pickups are, well, Stratty. No tinkering planned in the near future.
