I bought this on Ebay today for $130



It is a Squier S-73 These guitars started their lives as De Armond copies of Guild guitars,but when Fender pulled the plug on the DeArmond line they rebadged the remaining stock as Squiers and called these models the Squier "24 series"(a reference to their 24 3/4 neck scale length
These are the 2002 M(singlcut), S(doublecut) and X(hollowbody) models

The M series ones were really highly rated/reviewed when they came out. I'd never seen the S series ones before. Are you enjoying it?

Thanks,I just pulled the trigger on the S-73. I thought $130 was a good price.I'm not sure what these usually sell for but Here is another one that just got listed with a BIN price of $350 (link)



This is a De Armond that sold on Reverb for $299

Nice! I've often thought about picking up an M series, but the ones I've seen have always been pretty expensive. That is a great price for yours. They weren't around for long and sold really well.

If I remember correctly they won the award for the best sub £500 electric that year in one of the guitar magazines. (I think it was the £399 model.)

I just found this 2002 press release about the Squier 24 Series. I guess these are the rebadged DeArmonds


I think that's the case. According to my book about Squier:

Quote:
Fender had bought DeArmond in 1997 and began a new line of guitars with the brand, using designs from Guild, another Fender 90s acquisition. When the DeArmonds failed, some were converted into the Squier Series 24, starting in 2002 and including the S-73 and various M models.

Good score.
Never knew these existed tbh, despite reading the Squier book Confused

I got it today. What a beautiful guitar. It is just as well made as the De Armond and the Duncan Designed pickups sound pretty close to the real JB/59 set too.
It's hard to tell from my photos but the Wine Red Metallic finish looks really stunning in person.

Here's the FMIC parts list for this guitar:

034-7300-XXX Series 24 S-73 Lst $
0062427000 Tuners, 38-01G Chr Bell Srs 24 14.00
0062428000 Bridge, LP Style (3)Chr Crt Srs 24 14.00
0062420000 Tailpiece, LP Style Chr Cort Srs 24 8.00
0062429000 Pickup, Dun Dsign HB-101N Neck 34.00
0062430000 Pickup, Dun Dsign HB-102B Brdg 36.00
0062382000 Control, B500K 2401-D18SL, Vol 2.66
0062383000 Control, A500K 1607-20SL-10, Tone 4.00
0062384000 Switch, 3-Way Toggle Cort 4.00
0062423000 Knob, NO-1 Bell Black Srs 24 2.66
0062432000 Pickguard, S-73 Srs 24 6.00

This is info about the pickups in this guitar I got this from The Seymour Duncan website:

The HB-101 was patterned after the Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59 Model™ humbucker set. It uses an Alnico 5 magnet and winding spec based on the revered 1955 - 1960 Gibson P.A.F.

The HB-102 was modeled after Seymour's favorite humbucker combination, the USA-made SH-4 JB™ bridge and SH-2n Jazz Model™ neck set. Like the HB-101s, these pickups also use Alnico 5 magnets, but have a hotter winding spec, based on the world's most popular "hot-rodded" humbucker. The bridge pickup is Trembucker-spaced.

+1, good coupletones going on there.

I would say that was definitely a score price-wise for the S-73.

Oh shit I'm pretty sure they used that same inlay for some of the Squier Master Series guitars, which kicked ass.
