I don't think that's going to be much better than your squier....and that floyd will give you a lot of trouble...

What was wrong with the Squier? Or are you just not a big fan of Hello Kitty?

The squier wouldnt stay in tune for more than 10 minutes and a guitar with humbuckers fits my style of music better than single coils. haha and im not a fan of hello kitty

GFS prewired HH pickguard-$40. http://store.guitarfetish.com/wistpi2chpaf.html
GFS pickups are about 20x better than the SPAP(**** posing as pickups) SX's guitars all have.
Guitar fetish gotoh-style locking tuners-$30. http://store.guitarfetish.com/gostbllotutr.html
I'd also suggest a new set of springs, the bridge on squiers is fine, but the springs suck.

OR
Floyd rose "fastloader" from guitarfetish.com- $60 (light routing required, but the basswood squiers are made of is easily routed. + retainer bar $3 http://store.guitarfetish.com/flrohestreba.html

Any and all these upgrades cost less than that SX piece of plywood and pot metal junk.
Squiers are GREAT after upgrades.

Please do not insinuate anything sexual from that.

The site state that the body is made of solid alder.

I think we should ask the TS about the tuning stability and overall playability before judging only for the price tag.

Definitely that floyd will **** you over, I would've gone with one without the floyd, they're nice looking, but watch its gonna give you hard tuning problems....but im not trying to drag you down, have fun with your new guitar its very good looking. Hopefully you wont have that much trouble with it.

The main problem was that I use the tremolo a lot and the squier went out of tune if I used it ONCE. It had good playability but the tuning stability was horrible. So if I can figure out how to get the floyd set up maybe this guitar will be better

Its licensed by floyd rose. I know it will probably be made from crappy metal but its better than the standard bridge that was on my strat.

Not a huge fan of Floyd's but it looks pretty nice, I'm gonna get soo flamed for this but it looks kinda like a cross bewteen an Ibanez and a Schecter.

Actually, the bridge won't be any better, probably worse. People complain about how Squiers are not put together well. Well then, get you screwdriver and tighten a few screws up, add maybe some new pickups, and you'll have a decent guitar. people are just too scared to do any work nowadays, and just go off buying a new guitar, becuase this one "sucks".

I got the bridge adjusted at the shop where I bought it and it was still going out of tune quickly.

bad idea. a guitar that cheap with a LFR is probably going to suck. .
on the bright side, the guitar looks good.
