Hey, a friend of mine is looking to get a strat style guitar, but he hasn't got a lot of cash. There's this one on eBay for £100, but I'm not sure what it is, it says Jimi Hendrix, but I wasn't aware Squire made a Jimi Hendrix model, we want to be sure it's not an affinity, because I've played one, and they're crap.

Here's the link:

As a side note, he has a budget of £200, and loves grunge, mainly Nirvana. He wants any fender style guitar (aside from a Telecaster).

Oh, and he's left handed, which is why I'm struggling to help, left handed guitars are so much more expensive :/

I suggest that he try looking for a standard, a CM, or a SV if he can. But id say go for it, its just a lefty squier, nothing special about it but left handed guitars are a bit more difficult and expensive to get. But its an affinity

being left handed doesnt mean you HAVE to play left handed guitars. im a lefty but ive always played regular guitars, and its always felt right for me.

He's been learning left handed for years though :') And, he's bought a standard now, so this thread is no longer relevant.

squire dose NOT make a jimi hendrix model. It is just the A-hole seller trying to pull the wool over someone's eyes. It is an affinity. And the whammy bar is F#cked. Tell him to buy a squire standard or a used classic vibe like someone else had mentioned.

And the old wives tale that Lefties a lot more expensive then righties is a lie. Maybe in some cases when you are dealing with an ultra high end guitar. Go to musiciansfriend.com and squires are 10-20 more for a lefty then a right. Dont buy into the BS
