    Default Is this a real VN3 Korean Squier?

    Hi, I am wondering if this is a fake guitar or not. Seller claims it to be a 1993 korean Squier. What do you think?

    Looks legit to me.

    How does it play & sound?

    Is the price right?
    I'm a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    The price range for my country (Brazil) is right.
    I can't evaluate the sound of it, becouse I don't know how it should perform. He sent me a video, pluging the guitar in a bass amp. A friend (not a fender expert, but a musician) told me it sounds good.

    I don't think too many people would go out of their way to fake a Squier, they could just as easily fake something more expensive. If your friend says it sounds good, buy it, plug in, and play it for all it's worth.

    Welcome to FenderTalk! Yeah, I'm with ACfixer on this one, faking a Squier would be like counterfeiting single dollar bills. The amount of work would not be worth the return. If it is a reasonable price for you, go for it and enjoy it!

    Thank you.
    V refers to Saehan(Sunghan), as 'S' was already taken by Samick. The second character refers to the decade: N represents Nineties (1990's). And the first number following is the year.

    So in your case it was made by Saehan(Sunghan) in 1993. Yes, it's Korean.

    A 'C' prefix refers to Cort and are usually the most desirable. -Dave
