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.
The guys over at Fender have put out the Squier Series for amateurs mostly. The quality of woods and electrics is not excellent but this guitar really delivers! It is a guitar for beginners but with a few tweaks the player will continue to use it for many years. I play with a Vox Tonelab LE and a Fender Frontman and even though I am playing guitar for almost 8 years now I found that this guitar did not by any means made me slower nor did it dissatisfyied me. I even use this guitar fore some gigs! And of course, you just cannot beat the looks of it. An amazing guitar, especially for a beginner! It will keep you company for many years.
Plays best: blues, rock, rock 'n' roll, surf, garage. This guitar is not suitable for metal players.
Electric Guitar Originally, Squier was the only manufacturer of inexpensive alternatives to Fender models with the original look. They had and have a very good reputation and even professionals...
