Don’t believe the hype.

What is your opinion of this product?
For the price it’s okay. I don’t like the neck, it’s too thin. It’s actually wide and thin, not fat like a baseball bat. Frets are okay, edges slightly rolled but not super comfy. Tones are bright and sparky like a strat but the neck position is lacking that airy nasal honk that I’m used to. Tuners are great and so is the finish. The bridge is questionable. I can’t get the strings high enough. I like higher action guitars that I can really dig into the bends and get a smooth tone, but the saddle screws are too short for that. I don’t think this guitar captures the true essence of a strat. I must say I’m disappointed after reading all the reviews.

Awesome guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I really love this guitar and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it needs a setup. I am switching to a heavier gauge string too. Once the setup is done I know I will have a super guitar. I received this guitar the very next day after ordering. Customer service was fantastic.

Nice Guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
Guitar was well packaged. But when I noticed some horrible looking damage to the protective plastic on the pickguard I was worried. When I took off the plastic sure enough the pickguard had some nasty scratches. The rest of the guitar has a very nice fit and finish. The quality of these Squiers at this price is great!! The neck is very nice and basically everything else too. I'm glad I got it. I guess I will see if they will give me a new pickguard for it. But very nice product from Squier!!

Great value!
What is your opinion of this product?
Being a Charvel and Jackson guy I am extremely happy with this guitar. I have been wanting a Strat for some time and was apprehensive about buying a Squire Strat. But as soon as I got this guitar out of the box I was impressed. It plays great and sounds even better. I have a Marshall practice amp and the sounds I get from this guitar rival that of more expensive guitars I have had. 5 stars for this one!!!

Love it!
What is your opinion of this product?
I always wanted a 70's large headstock Strat, and based on past experience with Squires (two Japan made mid 80's Strats and a VM Tele) I went ahead and ordered this one. I'm glad I did. This thing is great out of the box, setup is great, fit and finish is great. Sounds great through my Champion 100, and I can't wait to plug it into my 410 Hot Rod DeVille, which unfortunately is at another location. I am very satisfied with this guitar, and I would buy it again.

Super nice guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
Woo.... This 300 dollar guitar just blew my socks off. What a great guitar, the body is flawless and the neck feels great. The set up was right on, right relief in the neck and the action was just the way I like it. Sounds pretty much like a 70th Strat. I can't put it down. Once it's paid off I'm going to get a VM Tele.
