4.5 out of 5 (107 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"This guitar is one of the best out there for the price."
Sound: It has great tone and sounds great with almost any effect used on it. It sounds great playing it clean or using distortion. It only slightly lacks when trying to play heavy distortion (like metal) but it can still be used fine for that purpose, it just won't sound the same as a Gibson or ESP when it comes to playing metal. Still retains that nice telecaster tone. Feature: The tone nobs and volume nobs allow you to control any sound that comes from this guitar. The neck is also nice and thin to allow for speedy solo's. Ease of Use: Just plug it in and play, it sounds great in its factory setup and I didn't have to do much other than tune it to make it sound good out of the box. Quality: This guitar feels very durable and its paint is flawless. This guitar is easily one of the best that I own and will be used in all my upcoming gigs. The only problem I had was to be expected, and that was the strings that came on the guitar were pretty low quality but a quick change of strings fixed all that. Value: For $230 this guitar is a great buy. Sounds like a Fender, not a Squier. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to use it. The Wow Factor: A Telecaster body with chrome, covered pickups. Need I say more? Overall: This guitar will last through all the gigging I throw at it and more.

"Bast Damm Squier Out There Today!"
Sound: This is the best sounding $200.00 guitar out there today,bar none.I play this through a Americanmade Peavey Studio Pro 112,and I get a nice country twang with it,and when I switch to the distortion channel,it's just plain out gives me that 70's Led Zeppelin/AC/DC tone,that I love so much. Feature: This guitar has a 3 way pup switch,2 sets of volume and tone controls that enable you to set the tone to your liking.I read prior reviews where people were saying that the tone knobs aren't that good,buit you know what? I haven't had any problem with them at all. Ease of Use: Very easy to play,once it's set up properly.It's very playable with no problems at all.This just might be the best guitar that the Squier brand has out there today.But then again,I've always have been a sucker for a good Tele tone. Quality: Here's where I give it a low grade.When I got this in,the action was very high off the neck and the tuners were loose,along with the intonation being off.I believe that this was just made and put in a box until it got shipped off.I tightened the tuners and imput,adjusted the pups,lowered the saddles,and intonated it.Now,it's perfect,and it sounds great.That were the only faults I could find with this guitar. Value: I believe that this is the best guitar that is made under the Squier brand today.It sounds awesome,looks great,and is a keeper.I'm a Fender guy at heart,so this is a welcome addition to my arsenal of 6 string weaponry. Manufacturer Support: Fender has always been very consumer friendly,in my opinion.No problems here. The Wow Factor: It's a Telecaster that emits that 70's vibe.How could you not want it? I do wish that mine was a different color though,like maybe a Sunburst,to go along with my strat. Overall: I am keeping this guitar,and have no thoughts at all about getting rid of it.I do believe that it'll last me a lifetime.Then again,I'm a firm believer in taking care of your equipment and not letting it sit there and get all dirty.Take care of your stuff and it'll always be there for you.That's my motto.
Style of Music: classic rock and blues
