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.

I've had this guitar for a year. It was a great begginers guitar. Whenever i used the vibrato, the bridge would squeak so I had to take off the back plate and oil the springs. the jack was also giving me a little trouble.it also comes out of tune VERY easily.

I don't know what the point is...

By ultramittent

from Fivetwenty

Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

...of calling this Squier Guitar a "SQUIER." It plays exactly like a Fender. I have a P-Bass too, and I can't tell the difference between the Fenders and the Squiers, except for when I'm looking at the headstock...It's wonderful.

Good Guitar

By Mike

from Walker, La.

Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar three years ago and haven't had any problems. I reserched this guitar before buying it. My squier looks and sounds great. Every thing works on it,including both tones.It's in the cherry sunburst finish and it has an alder body. The neck is also good,the only thing I would change on the neck is I'd make it a little thicker. I love this guitar and plan on keeping it. Again it has not giving me any problems with sound, tuning,or hardware.I,ll leave in the gigbag for over a week, take it out and do some minor tuning and I'm good to go. This has been a great guitar for me and well worth the money. So over all great for rock & roll, blues, country and pop,but not for grung, heavy metal ect. Because of the single coil pickups.

Best Guitar I've Played

By zeppelinrock1342

from Atlanta

Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Got the guitar for my birthday and hooked it up to my amp and was amazed that it sounded just like a Fender. It's light and has a nice clean tone. I play all over the place with it and it hasnt let me down yet. Perfect for beginers and experianced players.

Affordable, good sounding, great lookin' guitar!

By loveguitar13579

from Watertown, CT

Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I purchased this guitar a couple years ago, although mine is a champagne goldish color rather than the red one above, but let me say, this guitar has held up amazing! Anyone who says Squiers are too cheap to be good is either lying or doesn't know the first thing about guitars. This guitar has a pretty fine sound, and the only work I ever had to have done on it was when it slipped from my grasp and hit my metal bed frame, but nothing has ever broken on its own. My only problem is that the low E string, and the A sting rattle when you pick them, unless you pick lightly, but that is a very recent thing. This guitar fits comfortably on my thigh, and since this guitar is relatively lightweight, so you can carry it around in a case, or on a strap, no problem If you are in the market for a beginners guitar, or just an inexpensive one, go for this one, they look good and are built even better. Fender makes great guitars, and this one is no different, it may say SQUIER on the headstock, but its all Fender. (if you're also lookin for a good beginners amp, check out the 15 watt Squier one, it sounds good for the amount it costs.)

Great Buy!!!

By Matt

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

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.

Great Guitar

By Viper84

from Miami, FL

Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

A lot of people complain about this guitar getting out of tune. Only time I experienced this was when I first got it. After a bit of playing that problem went away. Also, and I hate to say it, but putting some nut grease on the nut of the guitar should help as well. But it's a great guitar none the less, I love it.

The best least expensive electric guitar. PERIOD!

By Limelight Underdog

from Laguna Beach, CA

See all my reviews

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)

Great Guitar!!!!

By Jeff

from Rhode Island

Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Plays like a real Strat. Just a few tuning problems, other than that it works great with blues rock. Everytime you switch the pickup switch it's a new guitar. I use this guitar for hard rock rythm. The pickups can't handle the leads I want them to. But that's me, they may for you. I've had it for 2 years, still works great, still holds up. It was my first guitar yet it is still one of my main guitars. A great buy.

Excellent Guitar

By Michael C.

from West Warwick, RI

Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

First let me state, I actually bought the standard version listed here and not the bullet or affinity like some of these reviewers. This guitar is excellent for beginners and leisure players. The solid agathis body is warm and well made (mine was only 2 piece). The fretboard is solid and held on well. The hardware is chromoly from what I can tell and is sturdy and easily interchangeable. The people who are complaining about stuff coming lose and eventually not holding in are just overtightening and srripping the wood. The guitar holds tune well and needs only minor adjustments maybe once a month. The sound is excellent, and clean, the frets are set up nicely. I do recommend getting a professional setup just because you should on any guitar. The pickups are nice, not top notch, but will get you through. Guitar is sturdy and durable and can be gigged with ease. Don't let the elitist lie to you. This is an excellent guitar for the price and is not cheaply made. For those of us who aren't professionals or wanna-be professionals, this guitar can't be beat.

Horrible

By Michael Kleiman

from Bala Cynwyd, PA

Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

This was my first electric guitar. At that time, I was to short to play the Gibsons, so I had to choose a fender. I didn't have much money, so I looked at the 3 cheapest ones, and coulnd't tell the difference. I chose this one becuase it was the one I had picked up. I liked it at first, but as I played more I began to realize that 1. it had absolutely no sustain for pull offs. 2. The electronics were horrible. 3. the high E string would occasionally pop out of its place on the neck. I recently bought a Les paul 100 by epiphone, and in 5 minutes I loved it. Don't buy the Squier, get a better quality guitar!
