I originally bought this guitar for my daughter to learn on, but I spend more time playing it than she does. It's a real bargain for the price. This really is a mini Strat, but you don't have to be a midget to play it. It fits my 7 year old perfectly, and I can play it too. It's small enough for little hands, but spaced out properly for larger hands. I haven't had to alter this guitar in any way, but I have considered changing the pickups. Fortunately, they are regular sized, unlike the rest of the mini's parts. This instrument would be great for Teaching your kid to play, travelling, or playing out if you like the short scale! It would even be fun for playing in the passenger seat on road trips.

Got this for free as a part of a promotion, and as a starting guitar not a bad li'l thing. It does keep tuning really well for quite long if you spend the time to properly adjust the bridge right, but the frets definitely bring down the quality. First, the strings it comes with are pretty bad, so I'd just straight off replace them with a different brand. Second, the frets have many problems with intonation. You could have perfect tuning, yet still not sound right when playing anything other than an open string. I will vouch that it's very durable, and can stand up to any beating you throw at it, and the triple pickups are a great bonus for such a cheap guitar.

Great little guitar - too bad it had permanent marker on it!

      Comments about Squier Mini Strat Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is fun to play and sounds great. I bought it as a gift for my five-year-old, and I know she'll love it. Unfortunately there was a mark on the bottom that looks like black permanent marker, so it looks like I got a used guitar for the new guitar price.

          I have this and love it, but I can't quite understand the bad reviews. I know that there is fret buzz but couldn't you adjust the nut or truss rod? That's what I did.

            Comments about Squier Mini Strat Electric Guitar:

            My original plan was to buy a Mini Strat, upgrade it, and then keep it around the place, just in case one of my grandkids happens to become interested in learning, and for when I travel. In fact, it's It's easier to travel with than my Larrivee Parlorchanged the tuners to the vintage Klusson style, replaced the plastic roughly hewn nut, with a 41mm Graph Tech, changed the strings from the 9's it came with to 11's, installed new string trees rollers, and changed the knobs out with some high quality chrome ones, which made a huge difference aesthetically. It looks and plays so well now, and I've since discovered that with the small size and scale, it's small enough for me to play while I'm lounging around or just chillin' in my recliner, which is difficult with my Tele or Strat. I guess I lucked out, for the Mini I purchased was surprisingly playable right out of the box. Other than the items I replaced as referenced above, I can't believe how good all three single coils sound. I had anticipatef replacing them, but nope. In fact the delineation of sound from the 5-way switch is clearer and more distinct than with my American Stat. The fit and finish is flawless, and the neck it's the silkiest that I've ever played that is unbound. A cool little keeper for sure!

            Comments about Squier Mini Strat Electric Guitar:

            great sound, awesome pickups, incredible value. This definitly isn't a pro guitar, nor does it stand up to my MIM strat. but it's not supposed to. price to value wise, it's better than an american standard strat.I used it in a school telant show, and it was perfect. Unlike many other guitars I have played, the changes between pickups are very drastic. color doesn't fade, and the size is perfect for a begginer.

            Major disappointment - perhaps a lemon...

            Comments about Squier Mini Strat Electric Guitar:

            After all the reviews I ordered the Black Squire for my grandson. Being a 3/4 size I thought it would be nice for him. When it arrived, I immediately noticed the box had been previously been opened - not a good sign... Anyway I was hopeful. It looked good. Tuned it up and immediately was not too pleased with the tuners. Some were really hard to turn. After I tuned It and played it and it sounded "watery" for lack of a better word. I noticed if I pressed harder on the fretboard the chord actually changed in pitch. The feel was awful. So I called Guitar Center's website where I purchased it and asked if I could return it. I must give Guitar Center great credit as they took very good care of my disappointment in this matter. It was shipped to me via UPS, but I was able to go to my local GC store and upgrade (for ten dollars more) and got a far superior Epiphone Special. Yes it is a little larger but it is an entirely different experience guitar-wise. Maybe I got a lemon. But this Squire was clearly an inferior guitar quality wise. I do have another Squire Telecaster that I bought years ago and that is a fine instrument that I like very much. So maybe other Mini Strats will be fine. Mine wasn't.

            Nice guitars for the purpose, but don't pay for next day shipping. They use UPS and UPS doesn't deliver on Sats. Hey GC -- use FEDEX for next day. Ordered Wed evening, arrive following Mon. Three working days, 5 days total. After setup by my luthier (sp), plays very well and sounds better than I expected.
