says squier on the tele style headstock, has a strat body, weird pickguard, humbucker bridge, single coil neck, tele style control section, looks like a hardtail bridge.

looks like someone had some spare parts from a strat and tele and just put them together. its almost beautiful.

Yep, it's a Squier 51. I picked one of those up a few months ago for 100 bucks. It is a badass guitar for that price, I kid you not. The bridge pick up is sweet, the neck pick-up is sort of blah, but the bridge pick up is all I need. They kind of have a cult following. People like to mod them out in all sorts of ways. They're getting harder to find by the day, especially in stock condition, since they're out of production.

awe man, why did you have to tell me that my initial impression of that guitar (it has to be badass) was right!!!

i wonder if that person still has it. theyre selling it for $100.

now i need to sell a kidney to buy it.

Would be well worth the 100 bucks if you can grab it for that.
