For sale here is a little partscaster I built using parts I had lying around my shop.  Here is what I know about it:

The body is alder and is Korean made Squire, I think. It came in a lot of parts I got once, I believe it to be from the Korean made Squire line from the late 1980s. The electronics are original to the body, but I suspect them to be aftermarket, as the wiring looks handwired and the humbucker has a tap. I suspect someone added new electronics to the Squier in question long ago. Might be something like Seymour Duncan or Dimarzio, but I don’t know for sure as I did not do the work. They are certainly higher quality than the original pickups. The electronics sound wonderful — crystal clear classic strat tone in the neck and middle with a good amount of crunch from the humbucker.

The neck is Mitey Mite I believe, Fender licensed with the Fender headstock. The tuners are Allparts brand 10 mm Gotoh copies. The action is great, and this is really a great playing little strat. Trem works wonderfully and is really responsive — the bridge is original to the body as well. I replaced the old trem springs with new ones, so the tremolo doesn’t “float,” Georgie.
The action is great, and this is really a great playing little strat. Trem works wonderfully and is really responsive. (I think the bridge is original to the body as well.)

As always, I cleaned it up, polished the finish, oiled the board, flushed the electronics, changed the strings and set the action as low as I could.  This guitar has a basic gig bag. I named her “Blackmore” after my good buddy Richie.

Get that sweet Fender Strat tone without the price tag.  I guarantee this guitar sounds and plays better than any Fender MIM or Squire standard being made today.

Got questions? Shoot me a message, I love nerding out with other gearheads!
