Musicians look to Squier for great values on time-honored guitar and bass models that go easy on your wallet. With sleek looks and time-tested designs, Squier's highly expressive instruments are built for the long haul. They make a fine choice for the guitarist who is just getting started as well as guitarists on a budget who want to expand their collection.
Squier got its start as a string manufacturer and was acquired by Fender in 1965. After being acquired, the name resurfaced as a low-cost alternative initially manufactured and distributed in the Japanese domestic market and was shortly thereafter offered to Europe, North America, and the rest of the world.
By 1982, Fender's classic guitar models like the Stratocaster®, Telecaster®, Precision Bass®, and Jazz Bass® were also offered in editions for a fraction of the price of the originals. These cost-effective alternatives to Fender's sought-after guitars and basses were an immediate hit and the Squier legacy was born.
The company's lineup has expanded during the last few decades with more classic models based on Fender guitars and basses. With developments in guitar design and technology, Vintage, Standard, Jagmaster, Classic Vibe, and Affinity series have all been launched which include models that incorporate modern advances while strongly evoking their original Fender legacy.
Their lineup of guitar and bass starter packs that come complete with all the critical accessories give beginning players a highly playable instrument together with the essential accessories needed to start learning to play.
