Sound — 10
I play mostly rock, (alternative, garage, retro, classic) and some blues and a little bit of country. This thing is so versatile. It suits all my styles perfectly. I am using it with a Marshall G10 MK. II (as mentioned earlier, ) and a Dunlop Crybaby Classic. It's not muddy or anything, and sounds awesome. I can get a variety of great sounds out of it, including one that sounds a lot like Hendrix, or Clapton on "Sunshine of Your Love."
Overall Impression — 10
Like I said before, I play mostly rock, blues, and some country, and this suits it perfectly. Extremely versatile. Squier has made an excellent guitar for a very affordable price. How they do it is a mystery to me. If it were lost or stolen, I would hunt that thief down and cut off his toes until he gave it back. The best part about this is probably how versatile it is. Don't waste your money on a Fender, you're just paying for the brand name! Squiers are just as great!
Reliability & Durability — 10
I think it would be pretty good Live. The hardware has lasted for almost a decade, so I'm pretty sure it won't bail out on me just yet. After I got a stiffer leather strap, it hasn't come off by itself for a long time. However, the strap that came with it is cheaper and comes off a lot easier. I would use it on a gig with no backup, because this is 1. a decent guitar which I can rely on and 2. my only guitar. The finish is pretty much flawless, even though I've been playing it lots.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
I don't really know what it was like when it was Brand New, because my sister owned it for about 5 years before giving it to me 2 years ago. The bridge comes out of tune a little less than often, and it's a pain in the butt to put it in different tunings. But I'm pretty sure it wasn't like that when it was new. Considering how long I've had this, it's in excellent shape, but I've been shopping around for a new guitar anyway.

This guitar was made in about 2000, 2001 maybe, and was crafted in Indonesia. It has 22 frets and a rosewood fretboard, and it is green with a black pickguard. The green finish has a really nice slight sparkle to it. It comes with a string through body and Floyd Rose Tremolo, as well as 2 tone knobs and 1 volume knob, and, as usual, the 5-way selector. There are 2 single coils in the middle and the neck, (don't know what kind, possibly Duncan Designed, ) and a nice humbucker on the bridge. It doesn't say what kind of tuners they are, but it came with a Marshall G10 MK. II practice amp, (tiny yet super powerful, ) gig bag, strap and cable, which I have replaced after 7 years of usage.
