#5
dude u can get a brand new fender strat (mexican) for like 700 rrp and then u can bargain and get it for even cheaper.

I just went on a currency converter and 500 AUD is 383 USD. For that much you could get an agile AL les paul copy. from what i've heard this'll be way better than a squire, plus its made of mahogany and not agathis like the squire so it'll sound alot better. If you wanted a strat shaped guitar though they have some to which are said to be quite a bit better than the standard fender strat(the mexican ones). I just remembered that your in australia so shipping might be more and im not sure if they ship out there. I think you might be able to swing a epi LP maybe, not sure though but if you must, I guess squires are ok to start off with

my first guitar was a squire and i would definately NOT(!!) reccomend getting one. they r pretty crap guitars. i think you should stick with whatever you have now until you save up a bit more money because 500$ isnt going to get you an instrument that you are going to be happy with

Look on youtube.com- search "rediculously hard classical **** that no one in their right mind would try" and you'll find some 5 year old asian kids playing it

You can't get an agile sent to australia..


But for 500 australian dollars, and u're in teh sydney area there's a great store that sells used japanese fenders if u're willing to chip in a few more bucks.

I wouldn't recommend a squire, you'll regret it as soon as you get it.
