  • Excellent price, top quality

    As reviewed by Jonah on 9/5/2011

    Two years ago I began to play the electric guitar, starting off with a right-handed First Act 222 from Target. I got sick of it and took some money with me to Guitar Center with my buddy and bought this guitar, desperate for a left-handed guitar. I bought this one as a last resort deal, but it turns out to have been a very good decision. This guitar has noticeable quality for the price, and a branch of guitar from one of the most popular brands around, Fender. Mom's and Dad's, hear me out. If your kid is begging for an electric guitar and they have little or no background in playing, I would recommend picking one of these up, and yes, there is a difference between left handed guitars and right handed ones. Dont be surprised though if your son or daughter is wanting to upgrade to a better guitar pretty soon afterwards, these particular guitars are very basic. If your looking for a beginner guitar and a WAY low price, this is the one for you, trust me.

    I am a beginner and wanted to pick up a lower cost electric guitar. I did not want to spend a lot, but wanted something decent. Initially I went the used route, but a computer glitch on a used Squire Standard meant that they had sold it already, so they offered me a deal on this guitar. Have to say that the Guitar Center staff were kind of blah in this purchase and in another purchase of a used RH squier for my daughter. Bought an amp and a number of accessories, so thought that the customer service might have been a bit better. I asked them to check it over to see if it was OK prior to leaving the store - did not really look at it - except to eyeball it. Was hoping they could check it out for action, intonation, etc., but maybe I was expecting too much. Got it home and was very happy with it - no scratches, chips, the neck was very nice - with frets that were very smooth and blended in with the rosewood fingerboard. I watched a ton of youtube videos about setting a guitar up and then adjusted the truss rod a 1/4 turn counterclockwise, the action, and the pickup height and then the intonation. I have had the guitar a little over 2 weeks and I am happy with the purchase. Would I do it again - yes, I would purchase it again. Only negative is that the tuners seem to need to be adjusted quite often, maybe it is just that the strings are breaking in and it needs more frequent tuning. This is not a $1000 MIA Fender Stratocaster, but it is perfect for me to learn on and play for quite a while. If I advance and become a better guitar player and want to change something - then I could change out the pickups, volume and tone potentiometers and tuners. There are a lot of upgrades that could be done later and you would still be into it for less than a foreign made Fender Strat. If you want to spend just a little more money - then you may want to pick up a Squier Standard - the body is not as thin and is really like the Fender branded models and the pickups may be just a bit better. If you are a beginner like myself - I bought the Fender Mustang 1 amp and think it is fantastic. It is a modeling amp with 24 presets and it has great Fuse software to allow you to hook the amp up to a computer and change the presets with others that are found online - making it so much more flexible as far as sound profile configurations go.

  • Unbeatable for the price!

    As reviewed by Randal Mckissack on 11/28/2012

    Like the title says, this guitar is amazing for the price paid. When I bought it, I got it set up in the store (action, intonation, truss rod, etc.) and put some new strings on it. Tuning is stable, even with bending and using the whammy bar. All of the electronics work with no problems, and you can really hear the difference when you turn the knobs and use the 5-way pickup selector. The neck, frets, and fretboard are all smooth and nice to play. I've been playing bass and guitar for about 5 years when I bought this, so I can say that it would be a good guitar for beginner to intermediate players. And as a left handed player, you just won't find a better deal. Definitely recommended.
