FDP Forum / The Squier Forum / Is it Fender is it Squier, in fact what is it



Sep 14th, 2015 11:56 PM   Edit   Profile  

I was talking to my friends brother when we found we both are players who like Strats. After I had shown him my genuine 91 Strat Plus he showed me his. At first glance it looked like a nice Strat hss then he showed me the switching by lifting up one of the tone pots (I thought s1 switching was push down switch). Then we come to the serial number which I have never seen or should I say never seen this kind of sequence before. It started with the letters CDQ which the closest I can get to is a Chinese Squier. Yet this is marked up as a genuine Fender Stratocaster complete with the spaghetti logo on the headstock. I think that he was bought a. 'pretendocaster' , can anyone shed any light on this particularly the odd serial number
