ok so my Squier falls outta tune quite easily, like when im at my guitar lesson and just playin and stuff. is it the guitar itself? i notice some screws on the tuning knobs, is it because those are too loose? anyone know? (im getting a new guitar soon probably but i still need to know)

its mostly the tuners, but stretching the crap out of the strings will make them more stable

Either your nut slots are too tight, or your tuners are shot. It's probably the tuners.

Yeah, replace the tuners, and take a look at the nut. Are the strings new? Maybe they need to be stretched?

To continue on this topic, I have a Squier Bullet and it falls out of tune pretty fast, I think the jack might be shot. the other day I was just plying and suddenly I stopped hearing my guitar thru the amp. I tried different cables and amps but it still won't work. I tried tightening it and still no sound. WTF?

How can he stop you from buying a new guitar? It's your money, I'm getting a new one late this year once i have enough money.

you can get a used mexi standard strat for about that price, maybe lower through craigslist, but I would be careful buying used and make sure there's nothing wrong with it. Either way, $250s about the asking price for one in pretty good condition. you could probably dump your squire for about 60 at least on ebay, 100 on the top end, which i think is absolutely retarded on the part of the buyers, but for $250-300 you can get some decent guitar.

I just got this with a small 15watt crate practice amp --__-- for $300 through craigslist. You just have to look around and wait for the right one.

pshh no for like a car or somethin. i just turned 16. besides my guitar teacher is gonna try out my guitar this weekend and he will see if i should upgrade, judging by the Squier's potential. so if for some reason the Squier doesnt turn out in a condition where i should play it longer, ill be probably getting another
