Squier Vintage Modified Strat. With low-end guitars I will typically forgive fixable problems like dodgy electronics or a half-assed fret job, but the woods that guitar was made of were total shite and that's something you can never fix. A Strat body should never weigh more than a Les Paul and no maple should have looser grain than korina.

That's odd, I've got a Squier standard tele and its one of the best guitars I've played, I still play it more that my Fender Jag. The worst guitar that I've played would be a Lindo SG copy, the knobs were hard to turn and the pickup selector had rust on it

Not really when you consider the fact that it was heavily modified and poorly at that.

It sounded like shit and played like shit due to the previous owner being a total idiot.

BC Rich platinum warlock, man i hated that guitar. It would never stay in tune and it squealed like a stuck pig with any amount of overdrive. Firewood!!! Ohh I forgot shit doesn't burn.

Actually. I think I need to change my decision.

The worst guitar I owned was a fake Epi LP that some prick on eBay tried to fool me with.

It arrived with a broken neck.

It got returned and they got shut down by trading standards

Oh, and a no-name acoustic 12-string I got at a flea market. The neck snapped off after a year or so.

Typhoon strat copy I started on.

It's currently in pieces scattered across my house. I scallop frets on the neck form time to time when I get bored.

Epiphone les Paul special ii. The pickups cut in and out, I had to raise the action due to fret problems, if you look at the side of the body you can see layers of plywood, it doesn't stay in tune what so ever, and the tone is terrible.

But I still have it as it was my first guitar and I'm
Sentimental like that.

It's unfair to judge a guitar before its been professionally set up.

I had a BC Rich Platinum Mockingbird that was a lifeless piece of crap. I think it was made from a sponge. I'm getting pissed off just thinking about that guitar.
