I have been playing guitar for about 3 years. I bought this guitar about 6 months after i started playing, and let me tell you this is one of the greatest guitars i've played. You can get all kinds of different sounds with its 2 single coil and double coil pickups. There is very little feedback and it sounds great through my Fender 210R amp. The only problem that i have experinced with my this guitar is that in the first few weeks of spring and winter it comes out of tune more often, but i consider that a very minor problem. Overall this is a great guitar for the money. I highly recomend it.

You get what you pay for. When you buy a guitar cheap you know what you will get. Invest in something a little higher but if you cant this is ok. This was my second guitar. This guitar would get out of tune so easily. You strum a G chord you are then out of tune. The bridge would float but this sounds cool when you hit it. You will hit the toggle switch easily also. It shows a lot of scraches to. I am usually playing gigs and because you get out of tune easily I do not use it. But it is good if you just play as a hobby

Great beginner guitar

By Dillon

from TX

This was my second guitar to go along with my SSS Squier Strat. I've had it now for 9 years, and if not for an ill advised stop at a 'qualified' technician's shop (not affiliated with GC in any way) it would still be my number one. The neck is about as versatile as it gets, good for chords, lead play, or just about anything in between. The pick-ups are great for beginner's and this is a guitar modifiers dream because of its low price and good quality. I now have a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail in the neck position, Texas Special Neck Pickup in the middle position and a DiMarzio Tonezone in the Bridge, and this baby can rip and roar for any style I need. The features are very simple and long lasting. If you see the reviews about "I bought this guitar and it broke..... blah blah blah" thats just kids who don't know how to take care of an instrument. This guitar survived High School, College, and my two year old, it can take anything. (oh and that idiot technician)

great beginner guitar

By Brett

from Miami, FL

This guitar is a great starting guitar for beginners who want to learn how to play. I got this guitar at the age of nine and I played it for three years. Even though I got an SG after this one, this guitar is amazing when playing with a clean sound. The distortion is pretty good too. Just buy this guitar. It won't disappoint.

Great for beginning

By Mason

from CA

For those just starting out, this is the guitar for you. It's a pretty good guitar for the price. I had it for about a year before I got an upgrade. It was very easy for me to learn with this guitar and I've been completely satisfied with it. I do not recommend this guitar for any advanced players however.

Great for Beginners!

By Jake

from Pa

Well I bought this guitar about 4 years ago, and let me tell you it is a great guitar. It may be a "Squier" but it is still made by Fender. The 5 way selecter is awesome and lets you play in many tones. The neck on this guitar feels really good, and is fairly fast. This guitar can jam metal, or just really nice clean blues, or country. I recommend to anyone looking to buy their first guitar.

Perfect Learning Guitar

By Jamie

from NV

My dad picked this up for me when I started learning, and I can't thank him enough. It's a great guitar. The pick ups are great, the neck is amazing, and it stays in tune for months at a time. My only complaint is that some of the strings buzz when you are playing(i.e. I pluck my B and the A will ring as well). Other than that, it's perfect

Good Starter

By Cody G.

from Greensboro, NC

This was my first electric guitar i bought, But these are not only good starter guitars they are perfect for my style of music play, the floating bridge is great, and the only real problem is that the G-string always, always, ALWAYS!, goes out of tune, other than that 5 stars

ok guitar for price

By Jake Wade

from el paso texas

ive had this guitar for about 2 years now and its been good i tried to change the faceplate on it though but when i did the pick ups got extremely loose but its nothing to worry about unless you are playing down lol but if ur kinda a person to play blues this guitar has your name all over it in gold, the more hard rock stuff on it is ok but not the best ive been. overall excellent blues guitar excellent alternative rock guitar

Amazing!!!will blow your mind!!!

By Vishwanath

from Bangalore,Karnataka

kk...i read a lot of reviews of this guitar before thinking of getting it... i think this one product that is very underrated...but let me tell you, this is a great guitar..seriously AMAZING! hmm..people say that squiers are of low quality and it can be used only as a beginner guitar and so on...but thats all bullcrap..no problem at all... i tried playing on an ibanez 170dx also, and i had my eyes on that since people told me that strats aren't good for metal...but once i played on this...i just fell in love with it..!!! i play it with a LaneyLX35d amplifier and i can easily cover for metallica,maiden,megadeth and so on..!! i like the trem system too...probably goes out of tune a bit..but i dont mind tuning it again!! this is a great guitar and good for almost any kind of player.!!! get it NOW!!!! 5stars!

awsome beginner guitar

By robby

from OC

this is an awsome beginners guitar. it was my first guitar and i love it. one of the most comfortable necks that i have ever played on, durable, and awsome tone out of the original pickups. stays in tune pretty well unless you use the tremolo a lot then it goes out pretty badly but other than that its a great guitar for the money. the paint on it gets scratched up easily though, mine has tons of belt buckle marks on the back of it and a few scratches on the front but i covered the guitar in stickers so you cant see any of the scars. so over all great guitar for beginners.

Good begginer guitar

By AngusYoungRocks!

from Lancaster new york

I've had this guitar for about a year now and it's not bad. It's no professional guitar but it's a great for begginers. It has a fairly skinny neck and it's pretty light. The best thing is that it's cheap so if you decide guitar isn't for you, you won't waist a lot of money. Also if you do decide you like guitar, it's a great little guitar to start your career!
