Hey, does anyone know anything about the Fender Squier Stratocaster SP? I saw an ad for one for $200 and want to know if its worth it.
#2
they r good guitars but i suggest u buy a fender strat not a squire strat. um in terms of buying it , then i suggest you do only if u dont have a guitar like this (as in shape, nd brand) but if u do then dont.
#3

They are good beginers guitars. Especially if you buy the starter pack which comes with either a 10 or 15watt practice amp. There were a few things that needed fidiling with when i got it such as the correlation which is easily done if you know what to do. Or if you dont a guitar shop will kindly do it for you

If it's a squier standard, then yes, it's an allright quality guitar.
And the squier 51 is awesome.

But bullets, the affinity series etc etc. are pretty poor.

Actually, I play bass, but one of friends plays guitar and was looking for a new guitar. But, I think it is the starter pack, so it's not much of an improvement. Thanks for the info, though.

^^Ya my first guitar was a Squier too. It was only one of those affinity strats but I always just pick it up and play it's a solid guitar.

What starter pack is this if it's the one with a 15watt amp it's a pretty good deal i'd say. Since I payed $270.00.

my first guitar was a Peavey Raptor and my second was an Austin double cut (which at the time sounded like a god), nd my 3rd was my squire (which in my opinion is the best, bc it stays in tune and sounds better than the peavey)

My first guitar was a 1963 fender Jaguar. It ended up getting stolen back in 92. I'm still sore about that.

Squiers are ok. Avoid the bullet series. If you mod the electronics and pups it will sound much better. I would probably get an MIM strat though. This way you won't think of upgrading guitars to quickly after you find out how Squiers are generally perceived. Also, the Squier has very little trade in value and they're almost impossible to sell out right. You can find a used MIM strat for around $250 in very good condition.
#20
get a squier if you wanna do clean stuff, get a cheap les paul special if you wanna do some more crunchy heavy stuff.
#21
My first guitar was a squier strat from that starter pack. I loved that guitar even when I got my current guitar (an epiphone g400, which I didn't like as much even though it was a better guitar). It plays really smoothly. I gave it to my best friend Jackie about a month ago for her birthday though because she was always going on about wishing she could play guitar. It was a great starter guitar and reliable instrument while I had it, but as long as Jackies happy I don't care. i say you get it if your starting out. There good. The sp10 amps suck balls though.
#22
My first was a squier strat. Good for begginers but for a second guitar their crappy. If you already got a guitar, then go for epiphone as your second guitar, or a gibson or fender. Those are the better companies.
