I bought this squier standard stratocaster. It is great! I think you get more than what you payed for. The specs are the exact same as the Fender Standard Stratocaster. The only differences are the tuners and the body.(Fenders are made of alder, this guitar is made out of agathis.) There is really no difference. I am not new to guitar, so I know how to play, what to look for in a guitar, and how to set it up. The pickups can play from the light soft blues tone to the HEAVY CRUNCH ROCK TONE. I am really impressed with Squier . It is a Squier, but it was made by Fender and designed by Fender. The tremolo won't go out of tune when I use it like others have said. Maybe I got a lucky one. Sometimes you get lucky ones, sometimes you don't. So I would suggest to go to Guitar Center and try it out first. And if you get a bad one through shipping, then send it back and ask for another one. I don't do gigs, but I would recommend it to anyone who would. Or just have it as a backup. It is very reliable if used in a gig. It is very tough, and all the original parts still work. The strings don't randomly snap. The fingerboard feels wonderful in maple. It is really fast and the fingerboard is skinny to.(1.65 inches) I personally like it because I don't have big hands and it fits well. The tone knobs work fine. Everything just great! Tuners are fine. Nicely dressed frets. Nice 5 way switch feature for the 3 pickups. Overall, BUY IT!!! Great for beginners to intermediates. Expert players should have enough money to buy a real Fender or whatever their tastes like. Just don't think that just because the other Squier guitars aren't so good that this one is the same. You pay more than the others and just buy it. You won't be dissapointed.

I wanted a good quality back up stratocaster at a good price. Everything about the guitar is nice except it is extremely difficult to tune, and has fret buzz all over the neck. Now I have to spend more money to bring it in and adjust the action properly. Thanks a lot Fender.

    Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    When the guitar first arrived I took it out of the package and noticed two layers of plastic. The first one was easy to peel off however the second one took about 15 minutes to do so. The guitar overall has a great luck if you get the antique burst finish. Perfectly polished. However I noticed some crooked screws holding the pick guard to the guitar body. When I first started playing the guitar I noticed some fret buzzing. It was annoying at first but I soon got used to it. The guitar has a great deep brassier sound then my old Squier Strat affinity series guitar. I would highly recommend this guitar for novice to intermediate guitar players looking to find a good quality guitar for a good price. Being an intermediate level player, this was an excellent purchase. Also, I spent five dollars extra to get the guitar in 3 to 5 business days. This was an excellent decision because the guitar came and no later than 2 1/2 to 3 days by UPS. As my final verdict I'm giving this guitar a 3.8 to a 4.2 out of five stars.

    Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I bought this as my first electric guitar. While the electronics on this strat may not be to the same quality as a made in mexico or american made strat, the sound is superb. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a standard style fender strat at an entry level price.

    The best least expensive electric guitar. PERIOD!

    By Limelight Underdog

    from Laguna Beach, CA

    Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I bought the red one with the maple neck. This guitar has 22 frets not 21 like the made in Mexico Fenders. It also has the good two point tremolo not the poorly engineered 6 screw like the others. I love the maple fret board the rosewood one is too porous and slows you down. It also has the better agathis body not the easily dented bass wood body on the other Squiers. It has the better machine heads as well. Pickups sound great and has great hardware. You will have to set the guitar up properly to your liking and change the strings. I put on a locking DiMarzio strap right away so I don't have any falling accidents. THIS GUITAR IS THE BEST KEPT SECRET FROM FENDER BY FAR!!! You'll have to order one because they are always sold out but trust me this is a keeper at an extremely affordable price. :o)

    Cant Beat it

    By Reece Bartron

    from Topeka, Ks

    Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Ive been playing for about 4 years and in groups for about 1 of those years, and i get so many compliments on how good this guitar sounds and looks. I got mine in the vintage sunburst, and the sunburst looks orange in the pic, but in reality its a dark and beautiful red. It has alcino pickups, which are very good for a guitar this price. I play Blues Rock mostly, but sometimes i like to shred and this strat can do both. The only real complaints i have are that the jack is kinda loose, so you will have to go tighten it with a ratchet, and when you use the whammy a lot, the G string will go out of tune, but other than that, its the best guitar i own.

    Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I bought mine from GuitarCenter Online. Yes it was even a used model,& it's great. People generally write favorable reviews about Squiers for the simple fact that they can play very well,sound great,and are accessible at a very modest price.Mine came packaged very thoughtfully and simply needed an overhaul/setup.It does what I want and looks & feels like what I need.GuitarCenter always helps a lot.It's a great guitar.

    Fantastic Guitar

    By Reece Bartron

    from Topeka, Ks

    Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I bought this instrument, because i wanted a strat, and didnt want to pay big bucks for a Fender Standard. I went to my local Fender dealer, and saw this beauty. I fell in love at first sight. The antique Sunburst has a red tint, which i prefer to the normal orange sunburst. And it sounds Amazing, especially in the 2nd switch position. Its great for blues. I play it on a fender mustang III amp, which sounds great too. I would totally reccomend this to anyone, at any skill level.

    Great Guitar For A Mere Pittance !

    By Jeffrey Osgood

    from Woonsocket, R.I.

    Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I just got a used Cherryburst model with a rosewood fretboard and the only thing that it needed, was a new volume pot. So, I just ended up putting in a all new set of Fender 250K Pots in it and it was ready to go. With the 250s, it has more of a Classic Vibe to it ( Pun not in tended ! ) . Before, the stock 500K pots had a much more Trebly tone to it which I didn't like. Now,it's just as good as any Fender MIM Standard IMO. It stays in tune quite well and is quite versatile enabling me to play any style from Blues to Metal . Some of my friends say I should get a Fender Strat Waterslide headstock decal for the headstock, but heck, I'm not ashamed to admit that I own, play, and enjoy my Squier Standard Strat!!!!

    Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I have been playing many years and I hapened by my local music store and saw this squier hanging on the wall.I was trying out mim strat beside her so I figuered what the heck.The neck on this guitar felt so good I could not put it down.The frets were not sharp the neck did not have dead spots or buzz. I play blues classic rock .I am heavy handed but this guitar stayed in tune P.S. go easy on whammy it is just for looks.Heres the bad news pups are weak sound ok but weak.I will change out pups with good Pick ups then I will walk in a gig and watch everyones faces when i sic my new dog on them ... looks like a puppy but when I am done with upgrades it will be a big dog and I will still have money in my pocket.
