Squiers don't have good tone, then again I haven't listened to much RHCP, but I can tell you, their tone is better than what a Squier will give.

Squiers are usually made of plywood, the tone's going to go from bright, to dull in a few months or year if you're lucky.

I'd go with a mid priced guitar, about 400 dollars instead of a Squier starter set, those aren't the best things to learn on, you'll probably give up playing because of the playability of the Squier. But I don't really have a problem playing on most guitars but most Squiers are just bad, I've played a few good ones though.

That's a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a first guitar if you've never played before.

I dont want to spend more than 200, just to make sure i actually like this. And i just want one thats easy to use and good for begginers

Get a Squier to start. So that way if you end up quitting (or just stop playing) you don't have a $1000+ gathering dust in your closet.
#13
Some guy said that a Squier will make me want to give up because its too difficult to play
#14
That guy is apparently retarded. Squiers are EASY to play.

As a matter of fact, every guitar is EASY to play, it all comes down to player skill.

(This is coming from experience)

When you're just starting out, tone isn't the main focus, learning to play is. Sure, tone is a factor, but if you never learn how to play it doesn't matter how good the guitars tone is.

And the tone isn't half bad. I know there are much MUCH better guitars out there, but when you're just starting out, a Squier is best.

Get an Ibanez Artcore series. It sounds amazing, and because its a semi hollow guitar, it can be played with out an amp. This guitar sounds exactly like a solid body guitar, even when it isnt plugged into an amp. I own one (AM Series) and I love it. It is about 400 dollars, but it is worth it. Id also get a peavy backstage amp. This amp is very cheap (60 Bucks) and it was reviewed by guitar play magizine as the best low cost mini amp on the market.
