Squier Vintage Mondified Jaguar

Could have paid $3,600 for a Custom Shop 1962 Jaguar or $1,700+ for a 50th Anniversary one, or the made in Mexico Classic Player Jaguar for $800

So I cheaped out and bought the Squier version which cost about three months of your SmartPhone bill, or a fraction of the Classic Player. 

Sure, it was made in Indonesia. The screws are all loose and it needs a tune-up right out of the box. A small cost for more than $3,000 savings if I had bought the Custom Shop. Remember, this is the Beach Boy's guitar, after all. No collection complete without one.

Squier Duo Sonic Classic Vibe

According to Fender, built in China in April, 2009. Fender discontinued this guitar March, 2012. So wonderful to have a collector's item.

Jimi Hendrix's first guitar was a Duo Sonic. Michael Bloomfield used one, too. Short scale and light.

Epiphone AJ 100 acoustic

Believe it was built in 2006. For a short time, Epiphone did not produce these.
