Most people who start out with squiers tend to regret it later. You can get better quality starter guitars for the same price or less. (edit: this is only from what i've heard. i've personally never played a squier so don't take my word for it)

just because it has the fender brand name doesn't mean it's good.

That's a nice starter. What amp are you using?

^Just because it says "Squier," doesn't mean it's bad. Rondomusic really isn't known for their cheap guitars. They're known for their Agile series and above.

true, but the agiles are still around the same price (200). but i didn't say anything about it either way.. i just said not to get too excited over the fender name. (and yes squier doesn't mean it's bad)

if someone recommended that guitar to you and you like it then go for it. The point I wanted to make is that there's options and not everybody has to go with a Squier.

Fair enough, but the TS already owns the guitar, anyway.

Get a MIM Fender Standard Strat or Tele, can't go wrong with that, and you'll use it forever. If you play metal, put in some humbuckers, rock, maybe leave it the way it is.

dont do what i did
listen to fender strats and gibsons for a difference
i didnt know anything electrics.. listen to the sound of a single coil and humbucker for each guitar respectively; so you can learn more about pickups

this will help guide you in your decision

Huh...I agree w/ most and wouldn't get a Squier. I got one as a first electric a couple months ago. Loved it at first but even after 4/5 months, it's starting to wear out. Jump and get a cheaper Jackson/Ibanez

i'd say a yamaha pacifica is much better than a squier for beginner, i had a squier but got rid of it fast, my friend owns a pacifica and it owned my squier's ass.

Well since you already own the guitar, hope you have fun with it and dont be afraid to upgrade to a better one when yours skills get more advanced and ready for a new one. Squiers arent "Bad" but are generally the very low end of the guitars. They aren't "Complete and utter crap" and "unplayable" but are well, cheap. You get what you pay for. The difference in a $200 or $300 or $400 guitar will be very noticable.

If you want some help with settings we will need a picture of the amp (dials) or the name and model amp you have. Also settings depend on what music you are playing. In a lot of situations tons of distortion would be bad but in certain styles its good. I would maybe recommend getting a roland microcube or peavey vypyr amp since you might like it and it would *probably* make you sound a lot better. playability is on the guitar, sound is on the amp generally. Well most of the sound at least.

For a beginers practice amp the Roland Micro Cubes are good. There is plenty of adjustment and effects on them you can use until you have a better idea of what you need later on.
