I started this thread because there is a lot of love for certain of these instruments, and a lot of confusion about just what came out of the Cor-Tek, Samick, and Saehan factories in the nineties. They offer an enormous bang for the buck, and there are even some owners who'd put theirs up against even MIA Fenders. I'd like to see if we can compile something of a morphology of what exists. Post your Korean Squiers ... Squier II, or other, Jazz or Precision, but let us know the serial number range at least. I'd really like to know how many of these came with the well-regarded high gloss neck and maple fretboard, and which ones have a laminate body. But most of all, do you love it? Hate it? Meh? Here's the first of my two. It's a well-mojo'ed Squier II Precision, with the high gloss neck, and maple fretboard. I picked it up off of Craigslist from a local TB'er before I knew there was a Talkbass. The S9 serial number makes it a 1989 Samick factory model. Here's the Wiki page for serial number reference: Squier - Korean Squiers Tuners are the "Licensed by Schaller" type, with an aftermarket Hipshot drop tuner. The body is not ply, but solid wood. I didn't need to, but I replaced the electronics with CTS pots, a Switchcraft jack, and SD Quarter Pounders with closed covers. I also shielded the cavity with copper foil. It's sporting a three-ply pickguardian w/b/w pickguard. I frikken love this bass Show us yours!
