A guitar that's made for blowing 'em away.
The Squier Cyclone Electric Guitar is a value priced version of one of Fender's newest designs. Like the Fender version, the Squier Cyclone offers the best of both worlds: a combination of classic design and modern features.

Alder body. Maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. Medium jumbo frets.

This is one of my favorite instruments. Very playable, neat vintage vibe, and totally user-friendly. Sealed tuners work fine; vintage-style Strat trem far more usable than the Jag-Stang floating bridge- one of those "right choices" reworks of a vintage design! (Mustang guitar in this case) Trem works fine if used in retro-surf style (get a Floyd Rose trem if you want to impersonate Van Halen)--even my .060 low-A string (yeah, I'm into weird tunings/stringings) returns exactly to pitch. The knobs are perfectly located (I'm forever brushing the MV knob on a Strat), and it's very handy that the the bridge PU is higher output than the neck PU-- allows for rapid lead/rhythm changes using the 3-way switch alone, as on an instrument with independent PU controls. N and N-B settings give nice vintage Fender sounds, while the bridge PU alone is a beast, drives effects/amp modelling (e.g. Roland/Boss octave effects) handsomely.The Cyclone might be super-cool if offered in 3-color sunburst with a shell pickguard-- how 'bout it, Squier? You did it for the Jagmaster, another cool updated/retro design. Despite the 24-3/4" scale, this guitar is too long for some cases, something to watch out for.It's one of those instruments you just hate to put down. In my opinion, it's one of the nicest guitars you sell.
I've owned a squier cyclone for a couple years now, and it's been a pretty good guitar overall. I did have some problems with fret buzz, but it wasn't severe and heavier strings fixed it. It plays ok, sounds great for a cheap guitar, and looks pretty cool. I like having both single-coil and humbucker; it's quite versatile. A good indonesian guitar.
For a cheap guitar, this is the best thing out there right now. Whether you are just beginning or have been playing for 5 years, this guitar is worth every penny. Absolutely a gorgeous guitar that has a great feel to it.
this is one kick a** guitar, and i'm not just saying that because of the small price tag. It has an awesome "mean" tone that takes you by surprise, considering the handsome vintage looks.
This is one of my favorite guitars I've played. The neck is a good size, the body is great, the pickups are pretty good for a Squier too.
I've owned this guitar for a few weeks now and I have to say it is a great guitar for a Squier. I've owned a Squier before and it wasn't so good, so I had second thoughts about buying another one but I've heard good things about this guitar. So once I got it I was blown away by it's quality, and the humbucker gives a nice raw, edgey sound to it. I recommend this to any guitarist looking for a nice little guitar.
I just bought this guitar about a week ago and i'm impressed. It is my first guitar and i wanted a real fender but didn't feel like spending the money for a first guitar so i went with this. My friends laughed when i said i was getting a squier but when i got it everyone was impressed. The metallic blue looks awesome with the pearl pickguard. My tone knob was messed up a little when i got it but nothing major, this guitar is worth the money. (My uncle was even impressed with the guitar's ability and he has an original 70's goldtop les paul and a new srv strat).
Been playing for 10 years. I got this thing just cause I was tired of my fender strat, and it's turned out to be everything I thought it was going to be. Now I can't say anything definitively on the subject of tone cause it comes from the factory with 9s or whatever. Just plugging it in after taking it out of the box it sounds pretty damn good to me, although I'm not much of a tone freak. Sounds like there is some potential for a bluesy strat sound in the neck and the humbucker seems loud but tasteful. Was going to switch out the pickups, but I actually don't know yet. Wish I had waited on that. Had squier stuff before, and, once again, I feel as if I got more than I paid for. Don't get the Metallic Blue if you don't want an almost purple guitar. This color is deceiving. In some pics it looks blue, others slightly purple. Get black if you're not sure.
I just got this a few days ago, and this guitar is really good. If you like the Fender single coil sound, but need a humbucker for darker things, then this guitar is for you. I would recommend having a guitar store adjust the truss rod and bridge and fix the intonation, because it comes not set up very well. This guitar sounds pretty good for a cheap guitar made in Indonesia.
I got this guitar to customize. It will be all pearlize white when I'm done. The single coil pickup really doesn't match the humbucker. In fact, the middle toggle position (both PUs on) has no difference in tone than the neck position. They could of put a better single coil in this thing. I'm installing a DiMarzio HS2 in it's place which will balance the tones and remove the single coil noise. The neck is real nice and the guitar plays very well. It came with really bad strings. I like the pearlized pick guard and the body is quite comfortable. They should of offered more colors with this thing.
