Squier Simon Neil Stratocaster
The Squier Simon Neil Stratocaster is a great looking guitar, to make it a great playing guitar you just need to make a few changes! The finish is beautiful! a fantastic looking Fiesta Red! The build quality is also very good, nicely dressed fret ends, aged looking or yellowed controls and pickup covers, and a great feeling neck. If you get lucky some of these Simon Neils have a nicely flamed neck, Sweetwater allows you to view pics and choose which guitar you want if they have more than one in stock, thats a great part of the Sweetwater buying experience. To keep the price down the guitar does have less than great pots, switches and wiring, but at this price point it is understandable. I installed new CTS pots, a switchcraft input jack, a quality 5 way switch, and rewired it with premium cloth covered wire. Now I have a guitar that sounds phenomenal and also looks great.
Sweetwater shipped the guitar extremely fast and the guitar was almost triple boxed, the best packing job I have ever seen from a online store or for that matter any store. I am very happy with my sweetwater experience. Thanks Ben.
