Squier Startocaster ROCKS

SquireJames on July 19, 2014

Bought my first Squier product 15 years or so ago, a purple Standard Issue Stratocaster and doubled up last week with a Candy Apple Red one, So happy with both, love the sound, love the price, Bought the purple brand new, and the Candy Red one at a pawn shop, but it looked so so unused, missing the tremolo arm, so next stop is the local music store so I won't have to transfer from the early one. IMO Squier products are over 90% of the quality a real Fender would get you, and being only a so so player, she is good enough for me.... Happy so Happy with Squier

I recently picked up a CXS 2004 model at a local pawn shop. Once I got it home a closer look reveled that it had probably never been taken out of the gig bag it came in.
I have a Gibson Les Paul Classic, Charvel Traditional Pro, MG44 decked out with Rio Grandes, Tele Custom and now two Squier Standard Strats. That's right, two. Both from the same factory the same year.
I found one more just as nice in another pawn shop not far from the first.
Both of these guitars still had the protective plastic covering on the pick guards and tuners.
One is the sunburst with red pearloid pick guard and the other black with a white pearloid pick guard.
I am very happy with both of these guitars, they play and sound great.
I wish I would have paid more attention to the Squier line before now, I missed out on a lot of fun playing.

Although this guitar is great value for money. Offers all the looks, and some of the tone of the Fender strat for a lot less; however, is nowhere near as nice to play or tonally good as the Squier Classic Vibe Strat. Put in the extra few bucks and get that one.

Prior to buying my Squier Standard Made in Indonesia ICS12013975, I only have love for MIJ Squiers (I own a Floyd Rose and a fixed bridge model). When I heard that Fender has been producing Squiers in Korea and China, my thought has always been "save for and buy a real Fender Strat."
In August 2013, I went to a local music store in Davao City and saw this Candy Red Squier Standard. Of course, the color was so beautiful it drew me in. Without any plan on buying the guitar, I asked the salesman if he could plug it in so I can try it out.
The rest is history and the guitar is with me now.
You can't get any closer to a Fender Strat sound than this guitar - that unmistakable brightness and twang on the bridge pickup, the bluesy tone on the bridge.
When I got home, I unscrewed and lifted up the pickup and saw where that genuine Strat sound was coming from: Three Alnico single coils, the look of which, was similar to my MIJ pickups. I was told the PUPs on my Squier was built by Tonerider but I didn't have a way of verifying it.
But did Fender actually intended the Indon Cort plant to become an overseas Fender guitar production similar to the one in Mexico?
Because by any angle, the Squiers produced there, like mine, sounded like they were intended to be real Fender guitars. Or Fender crafted in Indonesia but had been mistakenly stamped Squier on the headstock? I could just wonder.
At any rate, you can gig with this guitar all night and don't have to worry about reliability. I should know because I have been playing for years now

I play on several worship teams in my town, plus my band, and I needed something to hold its own against everybody else's high-quality gear. Strangely, this thing does the job wonderfully. An unfinished maple neck, tremolo arm and triple pickups are what I could not get from my other guitars. The features are standard for a Stratocaster, which means that the tone, design and playability are uncompromised. I love it!

Unbelievable Value Great Guitar

This is not an American Stratocaster. Having said that, this guitar is 95% of an American Stratocaster. I would liken it to buying a Toyota Camry instead of a Lexus. It is basically the same experience, you get everything you need, (but maybe not everything you want) at a deeply discounted price. I especially love the clean tones this guitar produces, and the pickups are also very good, I wouldn't even want to change them. The playability of this guitar is great. It feels great to play, and the strings are slightly closer together than that of Prs, or Gibson and other leading brands. I personally like the closer strings myself. They add a huge factor to the playability overall, and the build quality is excellent especially for a guitar this low in price. This guitar is a great buy and I would recommend it to any guitar player young or old, good or bad.

I own 2 of these, a 2003 and 04 respectively which are Black and Cherry finishes with Rosewood Fretboards. Even though these were great sounding guitars when I originally bought them, I felt the need to " upgrade " them both a bit. I took out the stock 500K pots and replaced them with all new Fender 250 Ks along with a new set of Fender 57/62 pickups in each guitar as well. Now they're both great sounding guitars that I would pit up against any MIA Fender Strat . The stock tuners on these do a great job of maintaining tuning stability and the finishes on both of them still look as if they just came out of the box after all these years. I use them in my band and would never think of getting rid of them. Squier rocks , so now can I have a endorsement ? LOL.
