This is one of the worst brand new guitars I've seen in awhile. It seems that a common perception of the Squier brand is that their guitars can be cheap pieces of junk. I was mostly of that opinion, but recently I was getting excited for Squier, and my opinion was changing of them, for the better. The Classic Vibe series are great guitars for the money, and I've seen a few other examples of nice guitars that Squier has been cranking out. However, this particular guitar is utterly not good. Among its design flaws - agathis wood, which is very cheap and dead sounding, no finish at all on the neck (I don't even thing there's a sealer coat on it), pot metal hardware...

The example of this series that I played had two fatal problems from the get-go - the neck SHIFTED on me as I was playing it! The neck is a bolt on, like most Telecasters, and I was playing a few chords, and I felt the neck pop, and all of a sudden the action was a lot higher and the strings were now out of tune. The second flaw was a big crack in the neck pickup cover! It's a metal cover, yet there was a large crack in the side of it, which caused the high E string to get stuck in there a few times during play.


The pickups are anemic, weak, and lifeless. The electronics are shoddy, and the guitar's inherent acoustic tone is awful.


I'm severely disappointed in this guitar. I had hopes for Squier. Now I know I need to be picky with them, and play every example first before buying.
