For a brand that started out making violins in the late 1800s, the Squier name has certainly come a long way. Acquired by Fender in 1965, Squier's owes its success to positioning itself as a more affordable alternative to its big brother. This means they share all the same standards and iconic designs as Fender, but at a more budget-friendly price point. With a Squier electric guitar you can stop dreaming and start playing, so take a look through our selection and see which model fits your musical needs. A throwback to the time when rock and roll first emerged as mainstream music, The Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster '50s Electric Guitar captures the look and style of a genuine vintage axe. Outfitted with a custom set of Alnico 5 single-coil pickups on the Butterscotch Blonde model and Alnico III on the Vintage Blonde, this Squier Tele has tone that commands attention on the stage. It offers clear note separation even in distorted modes, with strong midrange and high end bites for leads. This model is worth checking out if you're into the classic look of a Fender Telecaster. For young musicians who are just starting out, the Squier Mini Strat Electric is an excellent first guitar. Designed as a 3/4 size version of Squier's Bullet, the Mini Strat has just 20 frets on its small-scale neck, making it ideal for small hands. It boasts 3 single-coil pickups, master volume and tone controls and a rosewood fretboard. With cool color options and a sleek double cutaway body, the Mini Strat is perfect for artists with big stage aspirations. Squier prides itself on being the go-to brand for beginners and a stepping stone for intermediate and advanced guitarists whose ultimate dream is to own a Fender. With such high-quality instruments available to choose from, it totally makes sense to own a Squier (or two!).
