Comments about Squier Avril Lavigne Telecaster Solid Body Electric Guitar:

Why AL deserves a sig guitar escapes me. Regardless...this is a decent guitar for the money. While it isn't part of squier's classic vibe series, the quality is comparable, but at a lower price, which is a good thing for consumers. The best feature of this guitar is the neck. It's the standard fender c shape and dimension that's common to most of their factory guitars. Mine is outstanding. The fret work is excellent. No sharp fret ends. It seems to be in tune across the neck. Nice job squier. The basswood body is light and resonant. The finish is flawless. Now, of course this is a guitar on a tight budget, so squier has cut some corners...most particularly in the electronics and the tuning machines. The former are functional yet obviously super cheap and nasty. The pickguard is a thin, cheap 3 ply. The tuners are truly bad...imprecise and rough to turn. They will hold tune for a time but I am replacing them. I've read complaints about the pickup. I actually quite like it. My taste runs to vintage pafs, and this pickup lives in that neighbohood. It's focused on the high mids but has some bottom end to it. I don't really understand the wiring of the selector switch...single, hum, single. The two single positions sound identical to me. Single, series, parallel makes mor sense to me, which is how I'm going to rewire the guitar. I paid a c note less than street for mine, which I think is an excellent value given the quality of the neck and body alone. You'd be hard pressed to find a decent neck and body for that price let alone a functioning guitar.

    Comments about Squier Avril Lavigne Telecaster Solid Body Electric Guitar:

    As others have, I have no idea why Avril gets a signature model. The signature Squire series seems to have a better quality level than the non sig lines. The stock pickup is awful. It sounds weak distorted and absolutely dreadful clean. The coil split makes it sound worse somehow. That being said, it plays great and everything else can be tweaked. Sometimes I will buy guitars just to use my surplus parts. After putting in an EMG 85 and changing the tuners out, this is a beast. This guitar is a nice starting point and the sins of the poor electronics are easily fixed at a later date. Great for a starter, and the quality is comparable to much more expensive models. Do not be scared off by the poor pickups, but if you plan to gig with it, you will eventually upgrade the pickup.

      Comments about Squier Avril Lavigne Telecaster Solid Body Electric Guitar:

      Not bad at all. I typically look at low to mid range guitars because a)I can't afford anything more, and b) if it gets stolen, I'm not out much. So when I came across this, the skull inlay initially caught my attention, and upon review of the electronics, the coil tapping on the humbucker seemed interesting enough to pick this guitar up. Positions 1 & 3 (singles) sound the same (obviously) and position 2 (humbucker) has a stronger output. It fits nicely for providing both the single coil and humbucker sounds for the bridge posiition on one guitar, so it's a keeper. The fact that at's got Avril's name on it means nothing to me. Strings needed to be changed immediately, but thats my own personal preference. Otherwise, everything seemed ready to go out of the box. I might change the tuners and pickup eventually, but i'll most likely keep it stock.

      Comments about Squier Avril Lavigne Telecaster Solid Body Electric Guitar:

      Picked this guitar up for my 15 year old daughter. I looked through a lot of guitars before finding this one. There were no reviews and as I have owned several squire guitars back before I could afford better gear, I knew that with squire it has been a toss up as to whether I would get a good one or not... This is a good one. I am amazed at the craftsmanship of this guitar. The body is nice and all the pieces of hardware and electronics are securely attached. The neck is a straight as an arrow and feels and plays exceptionally well and the inlay work with the skull and crossbones is perfect. Speaking of the neck, one of the issues that I have had with squires is the neck pocket. on most of the ones that I have owned the neck pocket was too large and I would have to shim the neck to make it stable. The neck pocket on this guitar is tight and solid. The only complaint that I have (and it is not a shocking surprise) is that the pick up is not the greatest and I will be replacing it as soon as I get a new one in, other than that, there would not be any reason to pass on buying this guitar. I am thrilled with it.

        ok, like the title said, don't laugh. im not an avril fan "per-se", but, this little tele rocks. I love the satin finish on the neck, its fast! this guitar is a modders dream. I threw a black winter pup on her, so now ive got pop rock/ and Scandinavian death metal combined. hahaha. the skull on the fretboard just adds to the mojo.

        Comments about Squier Avril Lavigne Telecaster Solid Body Electric Guitar:

        I bought this because it was on sale, an interesting design and as a platform for a TremKing whammy. The best way to describe the sound is screechy and generally horrible in all switch positions. I'm installing a Fidelitron after I rout for the trem. The fit, finish and design are great but whoever left out the tone control was way off base. The three-way switch should have been set up Esquire style and not for coil-splitting. Looks like this platform is being dumped. Too bad for Avril being associated with a lemon.
