This is a beauty….. A Standard Stratocaster, made in Indonesia, in 1999, with a 1.75″ thick body, in a gorgeous color. Under the hood we found MIM pickups, similar to the ones on MIM Fender guitars. So we are not sure if it is original. In late 90’s the Squier line often used the parts typical on the Made in Mexico Strats, especially those coming out of Indonesia. These are ceramic based pickups. Also, note that this guitar has a factory installed six point tremolo bridge, instead of the two point that most standards have installed.
This one is like new. Really like new…. considering its over 20 years old, I believe it’s rare indeed. We ship all of our used Stratocasters in a used but not abused gigbag and with a tremolo bar.

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 is a used guitar, and 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. That process, described below, is designed to make the instrument fully playable and in most cases, almost like new. But we can’t get every nick or scratch, so we show you detailed pictures of the instrument, and highlight any flaws or finish imperfections. On this instrument, we could find nothing. It is practically new.
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:
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…
