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. With a 24-3/4" scale length, a small, contoured body, vintage-style tremolo, and a single coil/humbucker pickup configuration, the Cyclone is a great guitar for any player or musical style. Alder body. Maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. Medium jumbo frets.
It's the guitar you've been wanting, for a price that's easy. Order it today!

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.
Its a great guitar, it has a good Nirvana-vibe to it. I dive-bomb n stuff with it and it stays in tune, and i take it down low, down to the point where i think im gunna break it off. Mine came a little damaged, a chip on the lower wing and a scuff mark on the headstock. The fretboard was a little dirty too. the neck is a little too "thin" for my taste but the humbucker is great. An overall great guitar.
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 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.
This is my first electric guitar, and it is amazing! I have been studying music for over 10 years now with various instruments and this one's intonation is crazy!
I got a Squier Cyclone for Christmas and it's just great! I mean it, right when I saw the present I knew it would have to be a guitar. When I took it out of the box I just wanted to play it! It sounds great with or without the amp! The only bad thing was the strings buzz a bit too much but that can be fixed with a higher gauge string.
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).
This guitar is awesome. I got this for Christmas one year and loved it. The only bad things are that the single coil is very weak and the jack is a bitch because it always is coming loose. The humbucker is awesome on this thing. It has a nice clean or distortioned tone. Sounds fit my music style perfectly and I am always impressed by this thing. Nothing has fallen off yet so that's nice. It's a great beginner guitar and it looks like a Mustang. Very Kurt Cobainish.
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 got this guitar about a week ago and haven't been able to put it down since! I thought it would be pretty crappy concidering it IS a squire and they often known for high action, fret buzz, intonation problems, wack tuning stability, rough/dry necks, bad pickups...but to my extreme surprise it is extremely awesome! It's all real material, maple neck, rosewood board, alder body (similar to maple, half the weight). The neck action is extremely sweet...(better than my ibanez GAX70) the tuners are all metal and hold tuning better than any guitar I have ever had/played, the bridge is completely sweet, it has absolutly PERFECT intonation from the 1st to the 21st fret! the body and headstock shape blow me away because they just look so incredibaly sweet..not to mention the sexy pearloid guard on slick black body finish ..the pickups are totally sweet...you got a mellow blues/jazz neck pickup...with a bitting, bright neck pickup..my favorite sound is both of them on...and I love the position of the switch, I'm extremely active player and I tend to knock my switch down when I get to strumming real hard on my ibanez...but the position of the switch on the cyclone elimates that prob.One blah about it is mine came with quite alot of fret buzz one the fattest 3 strings (e,a,d strings) it could have been from the brand new fender bullets that come assembled on..but it does come with 2 allen wrenches and an extra spring..so I whipped out the bridge adjustment allen and fixed it in 5 minutes! and the action was still perfect!Oh yeah and one more...The trem is kinda hard to pull up (for a higher pitch) it's probably since the springs are brand new..but it's not hard to push down (for a lower pitch)...so GOOD for surfer music! =)I DO recomend this guitar...that price kicks the **** outta the fender model.
