This is an Excellent example of Samick in the Eighties early nineties. The guitar is amazing to play, so similar to my MIJ Squire. I totally stripped this guitar, cleaned up the body and neck, frets have been dressed, plenty of life didn't look like it had been played much. De rusted screws, saddles etc. re soldered a few connections added a new jack. Full service and setup, plays better than I thought, nice clear Strat tones. The neck is the star on this guitar, great feel, body is laminated but adds sustain and clarity to chords. Has a few chips but overall the guitar is in great condition for its age. I would say this is Korean made. Quiet collectable now these Crackle Finish Guitars. Weight is 3.5kg will be posted well packaged.
