    Nice Axe!

    Faultless guitar. I was lucky enough to grab one with nice flame in the maple neck. I swapped the pickups/pickguard with a Fralin setup I had and surprisingly no improvement. Stock sounds great and will remain in the guitar! I'm a pickup snob that loves Lollar and Fralin and this stock guitar works great. Great looks (to my taste). Only downside is $400 for a Squier, but the fretwork and sound are of a high quality guitar. Recommended!!!

    Squire 60th

    Just received the new Squire from Sweetwater. It arrived double boxed in perfect shape! The first thing I noticed was the weight, 6.2 lbs! The gold finish looks great, I'd rate it a 9/10. The neck is beyond my expectation! The Frets are flawless and running my hand along the neck i feel that the fret ends are in perfect harmony with the edge of the neck. Nothing protruding, all fret ends rounded nicely. The nut is nicely cut and the ends are radiused to blend with the neck. The gold hardware appears to be of decent quality, the gold finish definitely adds some class to this anniversary Squire. The sound of the pickups are very satisfactory, I don't feel the need to change them out. This is my second classic vibe strat, I have four fender Strats including a vintage hot rod 62. I have to say that this anniversary Squire feels and sounds on par with the rest. I expected Squire to go all-out on the anniversary edition and I wasn't disappointed!

    Solid Guitar once tweaked

    This is my 13th guitar and first "Strat" style. I read good reviews on this model so I figured it would be a good way to see if I liked this style of guitar or not (I own mostly Gibson's and Ibanez guitars). I was very please with this model's fit and finish. Beautiful gold that shimmers under lights. I love the feel of this neck as well. The only minor draw back to me were the stock vintage pick ups. They do not lend themselves well to rock, which is what I mostly play. I swapped the stock pups out with Seymour Duncan's and this thing now will hold its own against any of my higher priced guitars!

    Bad tuners, finish

    I waited over 2 months for this guitar only to be very disappointed. "Runs" in the paint job and tuners that are really loose and worthless! Looks to me like a factory second. Quality control is really lacking!
    I called Sweetwater and they gave me a $40.00 discount. Buy something else!
