I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania…. I knew three beers…Duquesne Pilsener, Iron City Lager, and Rolling Rock (in the squat bottles). So, when I saw this in the corner, I went for it.
We acquired this guitar at auction, no real interest. I was not sure at the time that this was a true Squier; the headstock was Squier, but necks are easy to relocate. This guitar is obviously a promotional item for Rolling Rock, so we took it back to the shop and verified it was a Squier product, produced in 2004.
Independent of the Rolling Rock graphic, and deep green color, it is unlike ANY Squier I’ve ever seen… It is a Standard, the high end of Squier guitars, so the neck and body are top grade, and comparable to a Fender MIM or better. Also indicative of the “Standard” designation, the body has a 2-point tremolo. It is configured with the “fat” headstock popular in the 70s. The output jack is on the side of the guitar, like an M-80. What is truly unique is that there is only one humbucker, and one volume knob…..That’s all; no frills, no fuss… It’s a shredder with a floating tremolo…
The guitar will be shipped in a used but not abused gig-bag, with a tremolo bar.
Due to the association of this product with alcohol, you must be 21 or older to purchase this product.

Lorien Guitar Recovery Refurbished Instruments
In addition to selling newer factory refurbished instruments, Lorien Guitar Recovery is in the business of recovering unique older Epiphone, Squier, Mexican Fender, and other mid-range guitars for resale.
This instrument was refurbished by Lorien Guitar Recovery. Unlike a typical used guitar, this one was completely checked out, and tested by skilled guitar Technicians, and then put through a multi-point refresh and refurbish process
Our Refurbish Process
First, we inspect the instrument for any physical or functional issues or damage. If the instrument has too much damage or does not meet minimum requirements, it is disassembled for parts and recycled; if it meets basic requirements it is refurbished.
This is what we do:
Is it “Original”?
We try to stay “original”, but we never have the history of these older guitars, so we don’t know if they came to us already altered, so we never claim originality. But we do refresh a lot of older instruments and thus we can make intelligent guesses. Look to our descriptions as to the items we added or changed, or differences we see when we refurbish it.
Too many used instruments get rejected, and tossed into a closet, or outright thrown away, or sent to thrift stores. And too many people, who should be able to learn an instrument, can’t afford to buy one or only one that is hard to play.
We believe every instrument should have a second chance, and every aspiring guitar player, should have a chance to buy a good guitar, at a fair price…. This is one of those guitars…. Don’t let it pass you by…. I offer my guitars at a fair price, but open the option for a best offer. We have to reject low-ball offers, but always consider honest ones. Try it; I may be in a good mood today! If you have a low budget or no budget, let us know. We’ll do our best to get you an instrument that is playable and affordable.
Thanks for Looking…
