The Squier ’51 was hugely popular but for reasons that nobody can explain it has been discontinued. Its only real negative point was that it was made from very low budget materials. Even so the neck was excellent and the pickups were highly regarded. It made an excellent platform for modifiying.
Unfortunately I never got my hands on one and now they go for silly money. Bah. Never mind. I make guitars. I’ll make my own.
The guitar is still under construction so come back to this page in a few months. Meanwhile you can see the progress so far on the build page.
