My Deluxe Strat is a pearl white July of '08 build, made in Indonesia. This has the smoothest neck I've ever felt. My left hand just glides up and down the satin finish. This neck is "wicked fast". The tone is amazingly superb and puts the higher priced Mexico and U.S.A. built Strats to shame. The "Duncan Designed" pickups need no upgrade. The craftsmanship of the guitar is superb, not a defect to be found anywhere. The frets are perfect, no sharp edges. Mine came out of the box like it had been "set-up" at the Fender Custom Shop by the most experienced tech, action was low and fast with absolutely no buzz. The paint/finish is gorgeous!!! This is a beauty and MUST be protected by a hard case, strap locks and with you life as once you get one you will NEVER want to put it down. You'll hate yourself if you ever drop or nick it, it's that great. I own two other axes, both are "Made in Indonesia" Squiers, a 2008 Squier Tele Custom, and a Squier '51. Both are excellent choices but for that "Strat" tone this is "IT". In the past year I've tried/tested/played guitars almost every two weeks, different brands, models, and scales. I tried all the made in Mexico, China, and U.S.A. Fender Strats but settled early on the Squiers made in Indonesia. My chief concern was the neck and the Squier Deluxe Stratocaster did not disappoint me like the others. Of those the Deluxe Stratocaster by Squier by Fender was by far my favorite. It's got the Fender Strat "feel", substantial in body, unsurpassed at it's price, excellent craftsmanship/construction and above all superior in tone. I find that the Tele Custom though a great guitar I hardly ever play. The Squier '51 with the dual coil humbucker at the bridge for the raunchier Joan Jett sound/tone is great, but the Deluxe outshines every other Fender Strat no matter what the cost that I've hung around my neck in the last year. It is hands down my favorite and that comes from a Tele/humbucker fan. If you purchase this axe you will never be disappointed. All three of my axes are Guitar Center buys, one I had shipped from Tennesse to NJ (Squier '51 bought used from a pic/image on the 'net). I never understood it but I now know what the "legend" of the fender Stratocaster is all about and if you get ones of these babies in your paws you'll know it too. This is a bonafide "sleeper" forget the Vibe, forget the Custom Shop, get the Squier by Fender Deluxe Stratocaster it WILL be a legend. Mine is to me.

The first one of these I ordered had some issues, like a gap between the neck and the body (I have seen this on Jackson's and AXL's), and the neck was raw unfinished wood. I went ahead and sent it back for an exchange figuring it was just a lemon, which happens here and there. So The replacement came today and there is again a gap between the neck and body, unfinished neck, and the neck itself seems to be set wrong and it has a horrible fret buzz. This is strike two...... I was impressed with the examples of this guitar that I had seen, and they have great reviews all over the internet. I have run into people who have these, and the guitar they have has a much better fit and finish, but they also purchased theirs a couple years back. So based on having two of these in a row show up with issues leads me to believe that there are some major quality control issues in the Indonesian factory that puts these out that doesn't seem to have been there when they first started making the Deluxe. Other than the fret buzz, the pickups sound great, the DD sc-101's have alnico V pole pieces which produce a thicker sound than the pups on my CV 50's with the alnico III's which I knew going in. But, over all I would have to say that the Squier CV 50's is a much better guitar in every way shape and form. (The CV 60's is way better too)So, if you are considering either a CV or Deluxe, go with one of the CV's, they are just way better guitars. At this point I don't know if I want to go through the hassle of another exchange...

    Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

    Upon delivery I picked the guitar up and plugged in. First impression was how awesome the cleans were. The pickups seem to be geared towards the lower mid range and they sound excellent. You can still get that single coil twang and the strat quack with some simple eq adjustment. I love the neck. I'm not sure if it's unfinished or if it has a satin finish but either way there's no gloss to slow you down. Tuning stability may be the only issue I have but a fender roller but should fix that easily.

        Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

        I sold my mexican Fender because this guitar was way better than it. The pickups on this guitar are just very stratty in my opinion. The "quack" positions really pop and my Mexican did not have the same sound. I also prefer the modern bridge with the block saddles. 22 frets instead of 21. I also love the satin feeling neck and the lack of gloss on the fretboard. Only con would be that the nut isn't amazing but I got the guitar brand new not too long ago and sometimes they need time to break in.

        Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

        It's a nice looking guitar. I bought it for my 14 yr old daughter. I guess I should have gotten her a real Strat because that's what she's used to having in her hands, Strat, SG 2000, PRS Santana. It feels cheap. I hate to be negative. I understand it's a beginner's guitar. That's why I bought it but if anyone needs a guitar to stay in tune, it's a beginner. Not your issue. It's Fender's issue. Apparently one they aren't going to correct. Too many people have expressed the same concerns.

          The guitar already had a lot of minor scratches and marks on the body when I received it, but nothing too bad. And the tone controls don't do anything unless the volume is up high enough (when I first got it I thought they didn't even work).

              Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

              This guitar is an amazing value. It is beautiful to look at and the quality is excellent. The guitar tech at GC did a quick set up out of the box and it plays so easily. This guitar is very solid and sounds great. If you didn't look at the Squier logo on the headstock you'd think you were holding a branded Fender that starts at twice the price. Even though this is a gorgeous guitar, there is one thing I'm going to change just because of personal taste. I'll be replacing the pick guard with one that is pearl white. I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone.

                Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

                I originally started my guitar ownership by buying Fender products. This Daphne Blue Squier with the maple fretboard holds its own against any Fender I've ever owned for a significantly lower price. My objective was to try and capture the look of the old Sonic Blue strat through this guitar. It's on the cover one of my CD's in a live shot and looks great. Plays right along with the big boys just fine. My genre is rock, blues, some jazz-type rock styles.

                Great in Surf Green

                By RANDY ALLEN

                from Truckee, California

                Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

                The blue one is actually much closer to Surf Green, which still looks really good, sounds great, keeps a tune. The frets could use some filing, but other than that, the setup was pretty good out of the box. I'm playing it out of a Fender Mustang II, so all those classic guitar sounds are at your finger tips by the switch of a knob. Great way to start. The guitar looks great, just like the one Clapton played on tour in 2010. That's probably why I bought it, since they did a lot of close-ups on his leads on the much more expensive Fender.

                Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

                I special ordered the Daphne Blue. I shopped around online and the pics made the body seem like a beautiful, light, robin's egg blue and the maple neck looked light blonde. When it arrived, the body looks green and the neck is darker and more yellow.
