Hey there, I am looking to buy a fender squier model stage / showmaster or similar.

Could anyone give me any knowledge/ info with regards to them in terms of the different builds and qualities? I have been told that "earlier standard series" is of higher quality - but I don't know anything about them or what to look out for!

Is there any real difference in quality between the stage/showmasters ? Does the 24 fret neck indicate anything over 22 fret models, or where they were made? etc. Those are the kinda questions bugging me. Would appreciate your thoughts if you're in the know, thanks,

Jon.

no idea on the guitar itself cause i've never seen one but it never hurts to search on the internet, remember google is your friend.

Compare it to similar guitars in your budget range and pick the guitar that feels and sounds right to you, thats all i can say.
