Great Playing Guitar for the Price.
I have been playing my Squier Strat for about 2 weeks now. I love it. Plays as well as some more expensive models. Stays in tune. Beautiful Finish. Pick ups are a little funny so far. I may need to wire the tone control to the bridge instead of the neck pick up. They are quite noisy for my use (Studio Recording, Amp and Effect Modeling, Small Tube amps.) So the only usable positions are 2 and 4. Single coil pickups can be noisy, so I'll be doing a pickup swap to some kind of noiseless pickups next time I change the strings, but that was the plan all along. My session guitar player suggested this to me because he knows I like to modify everything in my studio and this is a great value. His Squire sounds awesome and plays awesome too. Don't let Brand Badges fool you.
