    First guitar so I’m not really experienced with this. However I can for sure tell you the color is VERY nice and it feels really nice to play

    Good guitar with some fit and finish issues

    I bought this for my daughter for Christmas as her first guitar. She liked it because the color was cool and I liked it because it was a decent starter guitar that wasn’t super expensive. It is a really good guitar and from a distance it looks fantastic but upon close inspection you can see where the cost savings occurred. If you buy this be prepared or at least open to doing a little basic setup and minor finishing to make it the best it can be and also make it more comfortable to play.The neck was nice to the touch, soft satin finish on the back. Not the softest i’ve felt but definitely nice for the price. The Indian laurel fretboard is nice but could use some oil treatment as it looked very dried out. The paint finish on the body was also very nice. My daughter quickly sticker bombed it to her liking.On my unit many of the screws were not flush or screwed in straight. some had quite a bit of gap between the screw head and the pick guard which could be sharp if you brushed your hand against it. Also although the frets and fretboard are nice, there were a few frets with sharp edges. You may want to buy a luthier file and dress the edges of the frets to make them smooth. The frets in general could use a good polish, many were slightly corroded and had a scratchy tone when bending a string. One of my string trees on the headstock was either mounted incorrectly or bent. The “D” string was bent quite a bit lower than the “G” string above the nut.Set up wise the guitar needed quite a bit of attention. The nut was fine, could be a little lower but was ok. The bridge was not set up properly, the “G” string was low. the pickups were not set up at all, they were flat even across the body when generally they should be lower on the 6th string side and generally the bridge pickup would be lower than the middle and the middle lower than the bridge. Intonation was a bit off on most of the strings.If you have time to spend doing some polishing of this guitar’s rough edges and doing a proper setup you can end up with a very nice playing guitar that looks great also for not much money. If you don’t have the time or energy to fix some of the finish issues you might find this one uncomfortable to play.

    Ideal for what it offers

    This was a great decision. I have owned several guitars of various levels of price and brand. This Squier has a solid spot against the entire collection.Value obviously the best of all. Mine is a really beautiful choice. Plays great, stays in tune and can be a excellent platform to upgrade at reasonable cost. U do not have to upgrade to enjoy playing it. I certainly do not gig but am avid hobbyist and can play daily well enough to afford the habit.I will upgrade with pots/electrics and strings and have already selected Fender brand guard and covers. It stays in tune and I’m not a shredder so tuners not mandatory at this stage. Honestly I like this one and likely will buy another Bullet.I really like the Classic Vibes but for cost comparison the Bullet with even complete upgrade options gets the job done for me.Very pleased even as is out of the box. Fender has it figured out.PS-Specs on Fender site confirm maple neck and it really sustains and resonates. Very nice fit/finish as well. I will be treating fingerboard and trimming down fret edges a bit. No serious fret sprout however. I’ve had expensive brand guitars with same task as well btw.

    Love it!

    Great value, good guitar. I’ve experienced many guitars and I’ve always loved the idea of a hard tailed strat, this delivers!. I’m impressed, even the setup, action, intonation was done right.

    Good beginner guitar

    I really like this guitar, the color is awesome too. I bought a cheap Fender amp with it and they do the job for a beginner like me. I went ahead and replaced all my strings with Elixir strings since I had a string break after a couple weeks of playing everyday (despite keeping them clean) and that made a big difference as well.

    Great sound, great feel but measure and setup.

    Do a quick check the feelers or the micrometer and you’re off to jam.

    Comes with an annoying vibration that I can’t fix

    When I got it there were some scratches on the white part, and on the back. As soon I opened it and tuned it, the bridge kept making the E string vibrate so it’s constantly hitting the bridge. I don’t wanna have to go through the work of taking the bridge off and trying to fix. If I buy this new I expect it to be put together correctly already.

    Seller very good. Guitar okay for beginners.

    A decent, inexpensive option for a beginner. Seller was great; everything arrived safe and sound and a day earlier than expected.

    I can’t believe the amount of guitar you get for the cheap price

    I’m a luthier. I was able to make this play like a $1,300 American made Stratocaster. I spent another $50 on parts and I had it completely playing like a real Fender

    Get your new guitar properly setup

    I think, in manufacturing, they just turn the bolt for the neck truss untill it’s tight.This guitar was practically unplayable, the action was so low most notes on every string would rattle against the frets. I had to loosen the neck truss 3 full turns before I could see any bend in the neck, I gave it another 1/2 turn for good measure. These cheap maple necks are very stiff. Now it plays like a real Stratocaster.I love it. it looks great . It has that Strat sound, all 3000 of them. Very light and easy to handle. It’s not an high-quality instrument, it works right, but within 10-years it will break, and maybe you will learn how to repair guitars. What this guitar needs now is a eager-to-learn child to spend it’s next 10-years with.

    Precio justo y un buen producto

    Por el precio obtienes una guitarra decente para empezar, recomiendo hacer un ajuste de alma y puente para que quede mejor a tu gusto y cambiar las clavijas por unas de mejor calidad y así mejoras mucho la calidad de tu guitarra.En general satisfecho con este modelo aunque sí es necesario ajustar un par de cosas.

    Raising the bar

    Can’t believe they can sell such a great guitar at such a low price.
