I don't like it... to give it credit though the thing has great sound, I've got no problem with that. Plays chords good and everything BUT when I get to frets probably 10+ the sound fades so fast! Once I get to 15+ they fade almost instantly with no chance to do a hammer on or anythin. And I don't think it's my form because I can play really fast note sequences with hammer ons and all that on the lower frets. But its holding me back and I can't play any song with notes past the 12th fret. Can it be fixed? Or is it just a crappy guitar?

My amp is the fender SP-10 btw

Thank goodness I'm getting the schecter soon...

It's a beginner guitar, what did you expect? It's never gonna be a Jackson USA Custom Shop.

Your problem, however, is probably a combination of the amp and a bad setup.

Fender SP-10... Hmmm... I had one of those.

A year ago. Then I stepped up 5 watts into the Line6 Spider 3, which was a huge step in volume and quality. But it's nothing worth bragging about. If you wanna get one, be my guest. They are damn better than an MG imo.

Get a new amp, then new guitar, boy.

But yes, Squier Bullet Strats do suck.

This topic fails too much. A person is wondering why a $50 guitar is crap through a $20 amp and another person suggesting to get a Spider III.

The bullets blow more than *insert famous porn star's name here*. Most squier guitars really aren't that bad though.

Its not about the Radio its about talent, the front man has a bigger vocal range than Micheal Jackson and he can sing from heavey metal to high pitched ...No.12 on the top 20 under rated guitarists of ALL TIME...etc

Well it IS a squire. Try as you may it will always stink. If you like that Strat but want one that works then step up to the MIM standard strat. A better amp will help a lot too.

All guitars need to be setup. "Fading out" is something a basic setup will take care of.

I have a feeling your Schecter will not help your problem.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

As much as this is true, don't get the Spider III just because it's better than the MG (distortion wise).
