    I have a Fender Squire II that was made in Korea. Cheap guitar, but it was my first Strat, the body is the only thing left that's original. Very light guitar, plywood body, it's a good beater for a smoke filled gig.

    I think the special edition guitars listed on their website are the Korean made ones. I have the koa strat, made in Korea. Comes stock w/ american made seymour duncan pickups. The nut width was a little too narrow for me, bought a hiway neck, don't think I'll ever sell this one. Also had and sold the special edition showmaster, quilted bubinga top, set neck, 24 fret, arch top. duncan pearly gates and jb, locking tuners. I think this one is discontinued, should have kept it. Both sold new for $699. Alot of guitar for the money.

    I've got a Koreacaster that's about 10 years old and I still like it quite a bit. It's a Squier of some sort. Looks good, never broken, holds a tune and does the job. :)
