This is one cool guitar. It's really got a truly amazing tone that you can't find anywhere without actually getting the Hot Rails pickups. It's got 22 frets instead of Squier's traditional 21 frets, and I really like the vintage/modern vibe it gives off. Pretty good sustain, and the trem's real cool to mess around with. It's great right out of the box, and I can't say enough about the tone. It's got your traditional Strat tone, and it also packs in an unorthodox scream which is great for all the rockers out there. Too bad I could only give it five stars...

I played one in a music store. I love Seymour Duncan pickups, first off. These are "duncan designed", so they're decent, better than most squier pickups. That said, the Hot Rails (or this, a copy of it) is an excellent bridge fire breather for a stratocaster. You can play metal on this baby no sweat. However, it has hot rails in the neck and middle too, which gives you absolutely no versatility. The bridge is warm and hot for a bridge, but that same pickup in the neck and middle goes from muddy to insanely muddy. It would've been a much nicer guitar if they put something else in the neck and middle, like a cool rails neck and vintage rails middle. The rails pickups are good for string bends since they don't drop out during bend, but otherwise this thing is really only for metal.

Comments about Squier Deluxe Hot Rails Strat Electric Guitar:

I've never owned a low end guitar that sounds and plays as well as this. I bought with some skepticism after buying and liking the Squier Tele with humbuckers. Other than what I noted under cons this guitar is all pluses. Beginning guitarists may want to have an experienced player work it over before deciding. The pickups deliver a wide range of tones and are very loud. The only other minor negative is the frets need finishing but what do you want for this price!

    Comments about Squier Deluxe Hot Rails Strat Electric Guitar:

    Best guitar for the price I have ever owned. The pickups are almost worth the price of the guitar. My only con which is minor is the edges of the frets need to be smoothed out. Other than that this is an awesome Stratocaster. I bought the black one and a year later bought a white one. They can't be beat for the money. I also own a US Standard Strat. If it wasn't for the neck needing filing this guitar is as good as a US Strat or at least a Mexican. The secret to the foreign strats is to get ones made in Indonesia and then file the edges of the frets. Nothing else is needed. My opinion.

    Bang for your buck Strat!

    By Mike Mercer

    from Westfield, IN

    Comments about Squier Deluxe Hot Rails Strat Electric Guitar:

    I have been playing guitar a long time, about 30 years. I play mostly Hard Rock, Metal and Blues. I have spent a long time trying to find a Strat I really like. I have looked at American and MIM Strats, and have never found any love. I have never been a fan of the old vintage style tremolos, they always felt really cheap to me. Then I found the Squire Deluxe Hot Rails Strat and fell in love. The neck feels great, it has a satin not gloss finish so it's nice and smooth. The frets are the standard strat size, a little small but feel really good. The headstock is the fat style strat headstock which I love! The trem is the Fender two stud style, which I like compared to the six screw vintage style. After watching some instructional videos I was able to get the trem to stay in tune! Big bonus! The pickups are where this ax shines! They are Duncan Designed Hot Rails! The pups don't hum due to the twin blade design, and are nice and hot. They don't sound like your typical humbucker, but they don't sound like a single coil either. They are right in the middle, nice and bright with plenty of bite. But they aren't to glassy like a single coil either. They sound great for just about anything, from classic rock to blues, hard rock to metal. The pups shine! I will admit I play through a pretty nice rig (DigiTech GSP 1101 through a 100 watt tube amp), so I can get plenty of different tones from the guitar. But for the money, this is a great Strat!

    Awesome guitar for the buck

    By ronnie presley

    from Mississippi

    Comments about Squier Deluxe Hot Rails Strat Electric Guitar:

    Overall it's a must have for my collection and i am a pro. This guitar ended up being my main workhorse
    All i did was change strings because i use 11's and this guitar did not disapoint me. Sleek look, great tone, easy playability and at a affordable price. I love my new deluxe hot rails so much that i bought a new hardshell case to carry it in. It holds it's own with with usa models for sure.
    Buy it, buy it ....you will not be sorry
    Mine had one screw missing from the pickguard but probably just a small oversite. Lots of bang for your buck with this guitar.
    I could not have ask for a better guitar for the cost of this gem

    Hot Rails Squire.............My Main Squeeze

    By david newberry

    from Oklahoma City

    Comments about Squier Deluxe Hot Rails Strat Electric Guitar:

    BUY 1
    What a great sounding guitar! I only wish the pickup were tapped for single coil too. Neck is a little fat, but access above the 12th fret is great for lead. One hot puppy. I'm semi-pro and this has replaced a $2000 Les Paul as my go to axe.
    Remember this is a entry level and priced as such. If you consider that it's a 10. But matched with american strats/gibson etc. it's a solid 8
    this sound great and 3 hot little humbuckers give a tremendous variation an sounds.

    Tone Machine For Little Cash

    By Electrixblu

    from Middle River ,Maryland

    Comments about Squier Deluxe Hot Rails Strat Electric Guitar:

    Here we go...This is without a doubt a great Strat.I have to tip my hat to Fender/Squire for a great guitar.I bought a white one used from this site, and have been very tone happy!It now has been my go to guitar.If it anit on the stand its in my hands. Only issue I had is that the bridge pickup was installed in the middle, so I reversed the pickups and now its great. This guitar can cover so many styles. Squire has made a fan out of me...I own many of the recent Squireswith the Semour Duncan Design pickups.Fender/Squire/Semour Duncan=Tone Machine For Little Cash!!...Get Yours Now!!!

    Simply Amazing

    By Matt

    from Palm Beach

    Comments about Squier Deluxe Hot Rails Strat Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar mainly because of the pickups, but when I got it home on my Marshall half stack I discovered how truly amazing it really is. Since I always wanted a guitar to jam on before and after gigs just to warm up I bought it to mess around with, but I started using this guitar in the studios because it had better sound then my other fenders. All in all this is a great guitar to get if your just starting or if you've playing for years on end.
