As long as the neck is straight I guess it's fine

Muzickero, 25.06.2018
Having played guitars for 20 years now and been doing my own mods and setup I wouldn't suggest anyone playing this directly out of the box.
My intention was to make it a test bed for mods (pickups, electronics, hardware, and stainless steel frets later) and I think it is perfect for that.
Pros
Neck is straight
Tuners are decent - stays in tune 95% of the time which is good for budget guitars like this
Mine was a 3 pc body but the 3rd piece is just below the control plate which makes it difficult to notice so at first glance it looks like a 2 pc body
I thought pickups were okay
Satin neck finish

Cons
Poor build quality - low E string tuner nut was loose and the pole was tilted - crooked screws (string tree, strap button, pickguard) as if it was assembled in 2 minutes
Neck had many charcoal like stains and several dents and scratches although shallow, you don't expect this from a new guitar
Cheap electronics (pots, switch, wires)
Finish on body is so thick grains are barely visible
Frets can use a little polishing especially at the ends

Overall, I'm still satisfied because I only wanted a straight neck and an acceptable body and finish and for the price I couldn't really expect more.
I immediately replaced the pots with CTS 205K pots, instealled USA CRL 2 way switch, Switchcraft jack, orange drop cap, treble bleed circuit.
Replaced the nut with a Graphtech Tusq XL 42mm (needs some sanding to fit the narrower slot of the guitar but it was easy)
Replaced the pickups with GFS Overwound Repro Vintage Alnico Tele pickups

The upgrades cost another 100$ and I did a complete setup (neck relief, action (saddles and nut), intonation, polished the fret ends but it's all worth it.

The guitar feels 3 times more than its original price now

There was a time when cheap entry-level guitars were just crappy, close to unplayable. Happily those days are gone.

I wanted to try the cheapest Squier there is and wanted a butterscotch blonde Telecaster. This one was really a no-brainer. Buying a cheap guitar without testing is naturally risky, but with this one you really get a lot of instrument for a little money.

My guitar plays decently and has stayed in good shape. No problems whatsoever with its neck or other parts. I can set it up to low enough action for me (I however play with heavy gauge strings and do not care for super-low action). This one also sounds quite enough like a telecaster should - not greatly though when compared e.g. to my other Tele, a 1983 Squier JV, but nicely.

There is one thing I'd done differently. I'd selected a more traditional model tele-bridge. Top-loader is OK but I don't like the flat plate too much.
