Sound — 6
It really fis my style of music, a bluesy and mellow tone. it's very rich and bright in tone, very loud for such a cheap guitar. If I sometimes reconfigure the strings, or stuff, it can make kool music. The bends I make it are very pernounced, and tapping doesn't fade away very fast either. Problem is, the guitar is large and very bulky, and the accessablity to the higher frets are nearly impossible. The sound I recieve up there stink bad.
Overall Impression — 9
I play mainly just blues. Rock come with it, but mostly blues, so this guitar has the tone to match it all. I've been playing for 2 years, and I own a electric Peavey Predator international series, a target amp, and a old classical guitar that I still have not found Who made it. If I lost it, or if it broke, I'd get a new one, but I trust this guitar with my heart. it's very connected to my playing and I'm gonna treat it like a 25000 dollar guitar. Great guitar, super low price. I don't hate anything about this guitar. Nothing at all. I compared this to a Ibanez 300 dollar, and even though the Ibanez came on top, I'd rather have this Squier. I don't want anything else from this guitar.
Reliability & Durability — 8
Yeah, this guitar can withstand Live playing, but itsnot really fit for Live, more for practice and play. All the pieces on the guitar are solid and whatever punishment it takes, the parts never seem to fall apart. I'd trust this guitar for playing to a large audience, but I would rather want this one as a back up. it's cheap and the tone is nothing compared to top makers like Ibanez, Gibson, and Epiphone. My finish doesn't wear off at all, and I doubt it will.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
It was made very well, capable of withstanding my continuous bangs and accidental drops. The guitar was made perfectly, boting wrong, but the saddle seems very primitively made. Chunks of it seemed to be missing, but it had no effect what so ever to my playing. It never let me down when I needed some good noise in a song. I usually can't hear people speaking to me when I use it.
Features — 7
This guitar was made in china, perhaps estimate 2006. It's got 20 frets, fat neck, made of seemingly mahogany, and it's a solid top guitar. Its body is also mahogany, It's got a transparent top, and body of a dreadnought. It's got a regular acoustic bridge, I'm not sure what those are called, but with a plastic pin, and then you slip the ball of the string end in and yea, put the plastic pin back in. This is a active electronics company, and lots of people I know like the makes of Squier. It had a included gig bag, picks, and a music book.
