Squier by Fender Standard Stratocaster - Excellent first guitar

AdvantagesGreat sound. Low price. Good-looking. Reliable. Durable.

Good first guitar

Advantageslast forever (probably), fender looks

Disadvantagescheaply built

"I own a 2005 affinity strat, and apart from some worn frets and rusty screws and dents and scrapes, it's like new, the neck hasn't bent at all, infact, the guitar has hardly needed any adjustment from new.

Squier Strat Yes or No?

AdvantagesFast neck, alright tones

DisadvantagesTuning problems

"I would stray from them unless you are an experianced in knowledge of tremolos. They have a good, fast neck and alright tones but I would not get it as your first guitar. Since they are cheap you can buy a 3 pack of springs for about 5 bucks at Guitar Center and have them put it on the tremolo in the back of the guitar so it stays in tune better. I do have one and I have had problems with it from the get go. The range of tones is limited too. If you ..." Read review
