Someone posted about this over on Harmony Central - they said Squier posted a teaser Tweet about it, and that's where they got the image. From what I can see (and the image is all I have to go on at the moment), I'm guessing it's 24" scale - mainly because of the 22 fret neck and the "Mustang" logo on the headstock. Loks kind of like a mixing of Strat and Mustang elements...

Sorry if this is old news - I didn't see anything posted about it yet.

Don't think it's real. The picture came from the (Japanese) Squier twitter account but looks like it was a retweet of something someone had photo shopped.

Google translation of the tweet says (in very bad English):

Quote:
It is good! That's right would do with a clear conscience of such, What Squier. RT @ battan10: I need your help by all means Squier's the delusion of my guitar STRATANG @ Squier_Official (laughs)

Reminds me of a Fender Bullet with a Mustang neck.

I... kinda like it...
like, if it was cheap (like $179.99)
i'd buy one if only for the wtf-ness of it.
maybe even put a humbucker in the huge sea of pickguard between the pickups?
weird is good in my book
