There's an old saying that says if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. This saying definitely holds true in the case of Squier. Acquired by Fender in 1965, the Squier name was put to use in 1982 as a way to allow people to own a genuine Fender at a cost-conscious price, instead of a cheap (in more ways than one) knock off. Squier gives people the opportunity to stop dreaming and start playing, and because of this it has become one of the most respected names in the guitar world.
If you're looking to join the Squier family, you'll be happy to know that there are plenty of options to choose from, so you'll definitely find the right instrument for you. To make the process even easier, you may want to think about the style of instrument you want, as well as the features that are important to you. Doing this can definitely go a long way in streamlining your selection process. If you're just looking for a simple, entry level guitar, you'll definitely love the best-selling Bullet Strat with Tremolo. This guitar gives you the opportunity to play a true legend at a fraction of the cost. With 3 single-coil pickups for that iconic Strat tone, as well as a tremolo bar for serious note bending, this is everything a budding musician could want in a starter guitar.
If, on the other hand, you think you'd rather play bass, then you should turn your attentions to the Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass Special SS. This short scale bass features a split-single-coil Precision Bass middle pickup paired with a Jazz Bass single-coil bridge pickup that will help your tone roar to life. With the distinct look of a Jaguar and the even more distinct sounds of a Fender, this is an ideal bass for beginners as well as those who simply prefer the comforts of a short scale instrument.
And your options only expand from here! From options like classic Telecasters, Mustangs and Jasmasters to signature models designed in conjunction with artists such as Mikey Way of My Chemical Romance, Matt Freeman of Rancid, and Mike Dirnt of Green Day, Squier instruments offer everything you could want at a price that almost anybody can afford. By matching quality with affordability, Squier makes it easier than ever for you to wield the axe of your dreams.
