A really detailed article on Squier that covers the early 'battle' between the two Japanese brands:

great article Iain thanks for that
you've just reminded me of the strangest place i bought a guitar
it was from a fancy dress shop in Nottingham
i was working down there at the BBC for a few months and used to pass the shop on the way to work , they had a 1970's window dressing thing going on and i noticed one of the mannequins had a Squier strat hanging round his neck in a sort of Jimi hendrix get up ! it'a 1985 in vintage white
when they changed to halloween the next week i popped in and asked about the guitar they said i could have it for 50 GBP !!
i've still got it , it's a great guitar
best

Nice one. Was it a Squier Popular? 70's headstock?
