Squier, well being the owner of several American made Fenders I was very sceptical of this name. Was I ever surprised and pleased that I looked into this instrument. I still can't believe it ! A new set of Dadario 9-42's,little truss rod tweak,lowered the action,and the intonation was spot on, adjusted the pickup height plugged it in and, I couldn't believe my ears.
For an inexpensive import guitar that I wasn't expecting much out of I was rewarded with a very playable fine sounding instrument. I would have to say that the Duncan Designed PUP's are a strong selling point but, the guitar is very well made and, looks Great !
This guitar is a sleeper and, if you don't go looking for it you won't find it, I really came across this just looking for that different sound,edge and, unique quality that sometimes something different has. Glad I did. I would have given this 5 stars if I didn't have to set it up and, make it playable but, the effort was worth every minute I spent.
I could go on and on but I think you'll get the picture.
