Low-end fenders and ibanez are prolly your best bet. Teles, strats, Ibanez RG (they might get too pricey for ya though). Hope that helps =P

If your gigging... NO! Just save up for a normal Strat bro.
Add me or I will eat your kitty!

Nooooo, not a Squier, especially if you're gigging. Try the Fender Standard Strat instead: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-Standard-Stratocaster-Electric-Guitar?sku=516037
A little more expensive, but worth it.

c'mon!! is the guitar really that bad??

i play in frat parties:P and some small venues!
do i really need a 400 dlls strat?
#9
a Squier isn't bad, but it is a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong way away from being gigging good. Thats the guitar you'd take to break.
I like to write, and support Chemistry For Improved Life.

Please, recommend me any bands or artists of any genre or medium. Paintings, poets, writers, books, paintings, songs, musicians.

Anything, anything at all. Please.

You try it and see if you would gig with it. Upgrade the pickups and yes you could. I would gig with my Affinity Strat with EMGs, and Im picky about that stuff

Exactly.

The Ibanez RG321 is the best deal out there as far as thin necked humbucker guitars go. If you need a strat style single coil PU guitar then definitely save for something better than yet another ****ty Squire.

Or just get a Hagstrom UltraLux XL-5 and call it a day.
