Plays great !
kisuli, 23.04.2019
I have been looking for a Fender strat with a Floyd rose forever.
I don't really like the Player series but I have had good experiences with the "expensive" squier. I decided to buy this with the intention to change the pickups in the future and upgrade/modify it. I didn't expect it to be so good from the get-go.

First of all the neck:
Wow. It feels so good. I expected that it might need some work but
mine feels great. I was very surprised. It has sort of a satin finish
It is obviously bigger than other squiers because of the lockin tuners.
Just feels so good to play with.

The Floyd Rose tremolo:
Is just as good as any floyd rose.
First thing i did was stretch it both ways a few times to make sure the springs will have consistent tension. Then I changed the strings to some high quality ones. I set it up using the blockin the tremolo method (look it up its the best way). Play with it for a while and stretch the strings and set it up again. Since that it has stayed in tune for many hours. I have had three times more expensive floyd rose guitars and this is just as good. You just have to know how to set up a floyd rose.

The pickups:
Dont really differ too much from high-end active humbuckers. Tone/volume knobs and the switch feel good.
Comparing it to some very popular expensive active pickups (Brand that begins with a letter E and ends with a G) they just sound the same.

Tuners:
Are nothing similiar, I dont like the feel and they dont seem very durable. Basic Squier tuners really but because it has the locking nut it doesnt matter really. Its not hard to swap them with some 50€ ones that are much higher quality.

I also took it apart !
-the wiring looks very good and durable.
-even behind the pickguard the finish is decent.
-Neck pocket is fender standard, I test fitted USA neck on it.

I love the way it looks. The reverse headstock is so good.
Perhaps because these floyd rose squier models have a completely different design on the neck they went with the reverse headstock and different finish. The paint job is excellent . I love the dark grey hardware and the matching headstock.

It seems durable and I would even gig with it.
I doubt I will ever sell this one. You can easily replace any parts is has in the future when it wears down.

I can't believe its this cheap !

Update !
I managed to break the nut. I stripped one of the screws and it will not tighten all the way anymore.
I replaced it with schaller nut wich cost me 35€.
I advice you to be gentle, I had the screw in a slight angle and was a bit hasty tightening it.
