In 1982 Fender revived an old guitar string name for its new line of Japanese made electric guitars. Thousands of guitars later Squier is celebrating its 30th anniversary and is almost as important to the company as the main Fender brand. Discover the stories behind the original (and collectible) Japanese made Squier Series models, how Fender has often been more adventurous and experimental with Squier (away from its protected main brand), and the famous musicians who play Squier instruments. Full of luscious pictures, absorbing narrative, and collector's data (model identification & chronology, dating & serial numbers), this is the only guide to one of the most popular guitar brands of recent times. 160 pp.
