Very nice guitar!
gkourmoul1 02.05.2021
The guitar arrived in Greece very quickly, in 7 days. The package was very secure and tight. The guitar came with loose strings, and no setup at all. I had to adjust the truss rod, fix the action, pickup height and intonate. No big deal for me, but someone else would pay for this kind of service.

The guitar is just beautiful. Looks like a single piece body, and the overall quality is very high. Frets have no sharp edges, and the indian laurel has a very pleasant interaction with the fingers.

The sound is very nice, for guitar that cost 400 euros, but pickups could be better, as they are very compressed and lack of spark. Bridge is nice, but the neck is too "loose" sounding, very bassy and lacks definition. That affects middle position, also. Pickups sound very good in recordings, but they don't give a good feedback in the finger. No attack at all. I immediately replaced them with a handmade Q pickups set, and the sound was shiny and clear.

This tele has a very high playability. It is very light (around 3300gr) and plays like butter, compared to a MIM one. The C shaped neck is very pleasing in playing. I have large and fat finger, and this type of "slim" neck makes my playing just as easy as breathing. Narrow tall frets, also, help a lot for bending and vibrato. The easiest playing on a "fenderish" guitar, ever, for me.

There only problem that I noticed, and affects my playing, is that the 3-way switch is very very tight and difficult to change position. I lubricate the plates inside, but I found no diffrence. It is very noisy, too.

Overall, I'd say that is a fine guitar, whose value exceeds the price paid. I would recommend it to anyone, without second thoughts.

Sounds Good, Looks Great....
Fender69 30.09.2021
Really happy with my purchase. Always wanted a sunburst, but dont play enough to warrant full-on Fender spend. This is an excellent midway choice. Fantastic body finish, and the neck feels great. Pickups as expected are not a Rolls Royce feature, but for me they do a great job. Good clean sound, and plenty of sonic variations between the 2 when coupled with a good tone control. Very happy, and at this price, highly recommended. You will pay a lot more for a full on Fender without necessarily getting the return on that investment, particularly as a hobby player.

What?
billi_bow 17.06.2021
I had one import vintage telecaster. I was quite impresed with it´s versatile use. Wanted few upgrades, vintage bridge, bone nut, electronics etc. After I find out how much it´ll cost, I decidet to give SQ a try. O boy best decision this mont so far.

The looks is fantastic, feel is smooth. Tele is´t really heavy but it´s not cheap light :)

Action from the factory is dangerously high .. and strings need change, but even with those factors, guitar sounds perfect. It was setup perfectly (intonation and trussrod).

Really pleased with the guitar.

Very well built guitar
ursusaureus 12.06.2021
This is a very well built guitar, the body and neck feel solid and of high quality. The fretwork is surprisingly good for a guitar of this price range and the finish looks absolutely beautiful too! The double bound sunburst body just looks amazing and the tint on the neck goes really well with it. The neck is also very comfortable to play. It does require a full setup out of the box to be perfectly playable like most other guitars.

The standard hardware that comes with the guitar (tuners, bridge and saddles) is okay, they're sturdy enough although they tend to make the guitar go out of tune frequently so I will be changing them.

The pickups: the bridge pickup has all the classic Tele tones you need, and definitely holds its own in different genres where a bright or distorted tone is wanted. The neck pickup however leaves much to be desired, its sound is way too hollow for my taste and will be swapped out for a pickup with more versatility for playing jazz and blues. The wiring inside the control plate and the other cavities is pretty messy and dirty but this is not something you would ever have to interact with if you didn't want to.

All in all, considering the differences between this guitar and its "high-end" alternatives, there is very little to complain about, especially at this price. If you're going for a Squier Tele, the price/performance ratio of this guitar, even with its few minor imperfections, makes it a no brainer. Squier has really brought back that 60s vibe with considerable quality. Think of this guitar as a solid starting platform, waiting to be raised to its full potential. With a small amount of effort, this guitar can go from good to amazing both in looks and sound!
