Fender Squier Electric Guitar

Description

Fender, under the ownership of CBS, acquired the Squier brand name in 1965 when it bought a USA based string making firm , but it lay dormant for many years.[1] Before the Fender Squier series was introduced in 1982, Fender was making lower priced guitars such as the Fender Lead series at its Fullerton California plant. Until the introduction of the Fender Squier series, Fender had never produced lower priced guitars based on its main Stratocaster and Telecaster designs and had always used different model designs for its lower priced guitars.

Reviews

I got it used at guitar center in Seattle, Its a 2-tone tobacco burst with a maple neck and fingerboard. Mine has a few chips in it but that only add to the sentimental value. 21 frets, and 3single coils. A 5-way switch between them and 2-tone knobs and a volume. Option whammy-bar which screws in, kinda throws it out of tune.

Sound: I play just about anything on my acoustic but im learning to play lead on this, for the price I paid, the sound is amazing. I'm not using an amp but headphones and a pocket rocket. Sounds alright (but I got ripped off and the pocket rocket is a bass amp), so I'm not playing the guitar to its full potential. kinda buzzes when you're set to one coil but the two settings cancel that. Couldn't ask for much more with the tone, its as versatile as any Strat. Overall sound rocks.

Action, Fit & Finish: I mentioned chips but that was post factory (it was used). A little sloppy with the plastic, still some sticking out on the Switch, nothing to bother with. Action is good, fretboard is nice and smooth and the tuners hold nicely.

Reliability & Durability: Very durable, this guitar would have no problem playing live, the hardware has been kicking so far, haven't owned it long enough to change the strings. Strap holds nicely and it's a very dependable guitar.

Impression: Rock solid. I think I just got lucky, it plays just as well as a real Strat. So, I gotta give my guitar the best.
