Nearly everyday I have to retune, as it seems the strings stretch a little bit. Is this normal for a new guitar?

well, it´s a squire. so if it has a tremolo that wont keep in tune(lock it down the body if it "floats"). the new strings surely don´t help staying in tune either!

It's not that specific guitar, it's the fact that you bought a piece of shit and you have new strings.

Jeez theres a lot of squier hating in this forum. A beginner will not be able to tell the difference between a 200 dollar squier and a 3000 dollar Gibson LP.

But you dont have to take it back. I tune my guitar every time I pick it up. And new strings will go out of tune much quicker than worn in ones.

The strings are new so you have to stretch them. Afterwards, it should be fine.

Whew, I was getting a little worried when the cheap guitar comment was made. The Squier Strat was what I was looking at as my very first guitar (never played before). Makes me feel good, that as a beginner at least, I don't have to drop several hundred or a few grand to get something that will be good for me right now.

You have to tune your guitar everyday? I tune my Gibson Les Paul twice a day to keep it in tune, but that has nothing to do with the guitar. It's the strings. No matter what kind of strings you use they will stretch and go out of tune.

New strings need stretching, if you don't do it they'll do it by themselves gradually, simple. It's got sweet f.a. to do with the tuners, the bridge or the brand name.

You have to tune it twice a day? I tune my LP and it stays until I change the tuning. What kind of strings are you using? Do you not stretch them out good when you first put them on?

Squire strat, yee.

it's new.


Damn, well I could of told you that myself. I still have my very first guitar which is a Squire Strat and I replace strings on it with heavy light gauge strings because I still play it for solos and it ALWAYS goes out of tune when it gets new strings.

Just keep playing and retuning. The more you play and use the strings, the better it'll get and knocking out of tune will eventually stop.

Yes, because the strings are NEW and need stretching, it's the same for every guitar, it's got sod all to do with it being a Squier.
