I've been playing guitar 52 years and have a lot of equipment and playing experiance. The Squier Deluxe
I got is a quality instrument. I hope every Squire Deluxe is well made as mine. I'm writting this review to let potential buyers know that if your looking for a stratocator that I would say rivels any of the higher end strats out there, this is your ax. I find no flaws in mine, it is a joy to play. No issues with rough frets, buzzing or fretting out. Action and intonation is good. No flaws with consmetics, my Mettalic Pearl white in a knck out. The only thing I have done is install a new set of my favorite Earne Ball Super Slinkeys, lubricated the nut slots, string trees for tuning stability and tuned it up. The Duncan Design SC101's have a good classic fender tone but have a pesonallity all their own, IMHO---in a good way--Alnico 5 magnets. I reinterate, I'm judging the deluxe based on what's in front of me and I hope if you do buy this one you will be blessed as I was on getting a good one.

This guitar was listed as a "Scratch & dent" item. I was expecting a cosmetic blemish. What I got was a guitar with a very obvious check/split on the back of the neck along with poor sanding. The neck pocket also had a crack. There's no way this guitar should have passed quality control. I have another Squier Affinity that was made in Indonesia and the neck is way better. I was hoping this would be a step up from that guitar. Not so. I wasted fifty GW's for shipping costs both ways, for a defective guitar that should never been sold. Never again will I buy a "Scratch & Dent" special from Musician's Friend.

Great Strat for a great price.

Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

If you don't have a grand to spend on an American Strat, this will do. It's amazing how it sounds and plays.
I've been looking into buying a new Strat for a few years, I've owned the Protone Series and sadly sold it. I research this Strat before buying it, I bought the white one. First off, the finish is sparkly close up. Very impressed. The neck is so slick and smooth, I'd grade the thickness medium. Straight as an arrow to, no set up required. I have long fingers, use to bigger necks, but making my way around that. The tremolo was set a bit high, but I had a bone nut and 10's put on it, the set it lower. The pickups are chimy, fat and warm. I'd replace the bridge pickup though, more treble than I'd like.
I doubt you'll find a Strat for this perice that out performs this. I've owned two Squier before this, great starter guitar as well.
I'd gig with this with confidence. Very dependable, very road worthy. Worth every dime.

      Best choice for players on a budget

      By Keith Thomas

      from Florida

      Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

      This guitar can be used professionally. Good tone and feel. It may irritate musicians who paid 900 to 1200 for American Strats and they may have negative comments, so keep the secret!
      I purchased the Daphne Blue. I wish there was more color choices, but this one is growing on me. I may change the pick guard color to something wilder. The Duncan type pickups are more than adequate for great sound. Right out of the box it needed only tuned a little. Intonation seems right (I have not checked with a tuner yet). I plugged into a Fender MustangII amp with a litttle reverb and clean. Blown away how awesome for $299! A little Blues, Some Pearl Jam. It adapts great to distortion and most amp models.
      The finish is perfect. The intonation was perfect. Stays in tune for the most part. I have had to retune the light strings after bending alot. This shoud improve when the strings are seasoned. The "Duncan Design" pickups are very good for the money, and can always be upgraded later. I have a Squier Standard also, and there is a big improvement in quality and sound with the Deluxe.
      For $299, you definitely get more than you paid for.

          Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

          I recently bought a blem Squier Deluxe from MF to perform my first lefty flip. This was my first foray into the world of Fender (all other guitars have been Gibsons or Epis) and I decided flipping a Squier would be a fun project without breaking the bank.

          The guitar arrived and I was expecting some nasty finish defects to justify the 30% price reduction but there were none to be found. The pearl white is beautiful and the build quality far surpasses the price point. If you can get over the fact that the headstock doesn't have "Fender" on it, you're gonna love this thing! It does everything that a Stratocaster should do AND this one already has a 22-fret neck and a super stable 2-point trem system. Trem action is silky smooth and it always seems to come back properly. After getting it all setup for left-handed playing it's been hard to put the thing down. It's got all the chime and twang you could want clean, and it dirts up nicely when you want it to.

          For potential flippers, the nut slid out easily with a couple taps from a hammer and blunt nail setting spike. Then it's just a matter of getting the strap button moved to the lower horn and setting the intonation. The intonation screws in the bridge have more than enough adjustment to accommodate the flip. The whole setup job took about an hour including stringing and playing with the floating bridge springs.

          What are you waiting for? Break the chains of brand snobbery and get one of these already!

              Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

              I'd had my eye on one of these for a long time. I used to own a great Japanese model Strat, but it got stolen after a gig long ago and I was jonesing to replace it. I mostly play hard rock, but love the strat look, feel, and sound. I'm also not a millionaire, so liked the price point and many reviews suggested that this played like you might expect a much more expensive guitar to. I'm in no way a price snob. Some inexpensive guitars play great and some super expensive guitars sound average and most of my gear is mid-level or below, price wise. (Nevermind and VH 1 were recorded with guitars that probably cost 100 each!) I've also had some luck with on line low-end guitars before, so I gave it a try. When it came, I spent about an hour with it and generally thought I got what I paid for, and maybe a bit more. It played pretty well - not great, but not bad, and sounded good clean and with some distortion. But, the more I played it, the more it felt just a bit off. Finally I realized that the high e-string was really close to the edge of the fretboard, making it feel akward to play notes on that string, especially while bending the note or trying to give a note some vibrato. I went to a local guitar shop to compare other strats at all price points, and sure enough, the higher end ones were balanced across the fretboard, but the cheaper ones seemed to be off. Surprising because I assumed they were all designed by the same computer, but obviously not.

              I returned the guitar (MF were awesome) and at their suggestion tried one more. Unfortunately, this one was worse. The high e string was still too close to the fretboard edge, but the neck was sanded poorly and felt rough to play, and the frets were really rough and you could feel the stings catch and fight their way over them when you were bending a note. So that one went back too. (again MF were great).

              So I'm a bit disappointed, but I shouldn't be. I was expecting a 1500 guitar for only 300 and that is unrealistic. It was a 300 guitar. If you are just looking for something to bang around on, this will work, but you might as well just go all the way to the low end and save yourself 150. If you are looking for something quality to practice on or gig with, this is not the guitar for you.

              Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

              No guitar deserves a 10 overall, but this thing comes very, very close. IMO, the CV and Deluxe models are the top of Squier's line, and which one you choose comes down to whether you want the vintage look, feel and sound (CV) or something completely modern (Deluxe). Can't go wrong with either.
              Just got my Daphne Blue Deluxe yesterday. Been playing a Squier Classic Vibe 50s Tele for a while now, and was assuming I'd match it with a CV Strat, but I decided to go with the more modern design of the Deluxe. This guitar is exactly what it claims to be: a good, solid, modern Strat. I think it's better than the MIM Strat's I've tried, and if someone handed it to me and told me it was a MIA, I'd see no big reason to doubt it.
              Flawless finish, nice neck, good bridge and pickups, acceptably good pots/switch/jack, decent fretwork. Stays in tune well (I have decked the bridge, so it's down only, not floating), action is low, and intonation is spot on. Only took very minor tweaks out of the box to get it that way.
              Not just a good guitar for the money, but a great guitar, period. I think you'd have to spend in the four figures to get something that feels or sounds significantly better.

              Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

              Really good guitar. I have the Pearl White one. Pretty color and very nice fit to finish! Alot lighter over the Standard, and carries a brighter tone due in part to the Duncans. Though I much would of been more happier if this Deluxe came with the alnicos of the Standard. Not to thrilled with the Duncans thats for sure, too bright for me even when dropping the tone back. But for classic stuff she sounds fine. Just don't really have my tone for drop tuning is the only real reason I gave a 4 overall. Guitar is awesome, just change the pups IMO..

                Comments about Squier Deluxe Strat Electric Guitar:

                This is an amazing guitar. It simply sings! Do not listen to the negatives just because a string was broken or it came with some little ding, whatever. I bought a demo, so it was already setup, perfect fret work, smooth as silk. The pickups have a sweet tone but this again is very subjective. All I did to mine was change the strings to Ernie Balls 9-42. Having said that, and this only to my liking, I will be installing custom shop 54 pu's and the a diff color pick guard. But don't waste your money on mexi strats buy this, you will very happy. One more thing, whenever you get a new guitar, you have to spend time with it. Your natural hand oils will coat the neck over time and eventually it will become your own. Also the wood itself has to get used the vibration and tones being produced as well. So don't think it will become your own overnight. No, this takes time for it all to come together. This is one of the reason that a vintage guitar sounds so much better. Cheers mates!

                Beautiful guitar, great to play. Frets came sharp on the edges. You will need to have them smoothed out. You will also need to drop in some decent pick ups. The stock DD pups are weak. If you are looking for something great right out of the box, look elsewhere. If you are able to invest a little, you will have a fantastic guitar at a fraction of the price (compared to an American Strat). I had a 2001 Mexican Fat Strat, this Squier beats it by a mile.

I have around 20 guitars, I build them, play them, and maintain them for several touring bands and every single player who picks trhis one up cant believe how great it plays.The Details:Finish is FlawlessPUPs are amazing sweet and stratty everything you would expect from Duncan.Neck is satiny soft and super smooth. Better than the neck on ANY MIM Strat I have ever played.The aged hardware is really well done.The tuners (althought not locking) are stable and have an excelent ratio. No tuning problems here.The bridge is a thing of beauty. It has great saddles and the trem action is smooth and even. The nut is well crafted and does not stick, bind, or slip.All the chrome is fantastic, and the logos are a thing to behold.Well thats quite enough gushing. Now go buy one and find out for your self...

                  I've owned Mexican and American Standard Strats and sold or traded them. After reading numerous reviews online, I bought this to get back the Strat tone I'd been missing. Needless to say I'm NOT disappointed. The fit and finish are flawless on this beautiful Daphne Blue guitar. Neck feels great without fret issues. Tone and Volume controls work as they should and the Duncan Designed pickups sound great. I did some minor adjustments to taste for action height and intonated the guitar, but other than that, it was pretty good right out of the box. I'm thoroughly impressed with the guitar and very pleased with the purchase!

                    No complaints on this one. Its got great neck feel, smooth, fast and great sound. Love the pickups and fit and finish. For new guitarist just getting into playing, you should look no further. Its a Beauty, 100% I have been playing for years and Squire just keeps getting better, I started back in the eighties with a Fender Bullet and these are just as nice.

                    I was really excited to get this guitar as an end of winter project after watching some clips of other people playing it and reading all the positive reviews. The first guitar I received was dented, had deep scratches in the pickguard, had several flaws in the finish, and some tooling marks on the neck. Disappointing to say the least. Sent that one back and the new one I got was much better on the surface. Fretboard on both guitars felt and sounded like sandpaper when bending notes and fret edges were sharp but that was easy to sand and polish smooth. The nut and string trees needed to be lubricated to stop the strings from sticking and going in and out of tune. Tuners are the standard loose feeling cheap die cast tuners they put on every fender strat copy. Pickups sounded pretty weak even when compared to affinity pickups and the action was set really high. But none of that would have really mattered and could have been fixed or tolerated by most beginners and weekend players. Luckily though I removed the pickguard because I like to check and make sure the wiring is done correctly. Wasn't expecting to see the black "insulating" paint in the body cavity so that was nice. Then I looked down and saw that one of the ground wires that was suppose to be screwed into the body was almost completely undone. Once I screwed that on tightly and checked the other wires the pickups sounded much louder but it took a lot of work to find a setting that tamed down the highs on this guitar. The lows just really arent there even on the neck pickup with the tone all the way down. So if blues is your thing maybe pass. It came with two springs on the trem. I usually like to use 3 and keep the rear plate off for tone but after spending forever trying out different screw setting and height settings there was absolutely no way I could use any more than 2 springs and still have the tremolo float (In my opinion making the rear cavity look ugly). Even with the 2 springs on the outer claws for least tension, the support screws had to be loosened as far as they could safely go. The whole neck front and back is barely, barely finished so be really careful choosing a polish or attempting to add a little color to it because the thin areas will become noticeably darker than the rest of the neck. All that being said if you have some basic repair knowledge and maybe changing the pickups (which may have been the reason you were interested in the first place) you can really make this thing a nice guitar...maybe

                      I spent the vast majority of my years playing on ESP guitars and I really wanted something different to play on. I decided I had to have an all white strat with a maple fretboard. The only other two strats like this are the MIM Fender which only has 21 frets and the American Standard which is WAY out of my price range. I used a promo code and got a good price on it and have to say it was worth the money.

                      I don't have experience with any other strats so I can't compare directly to them, however I have read mixed reviews about this Deluxe model. Many say it's not much better than the Squier standard and that if you're gonna spend the money just go ahead and get a classic vibe series model. I will get a Standard later but for now I am really enjoying this Deluxe model.

                      I had to do a full setup on it because the fret buzz would choke out nearly all strings at the 15th fret. I threw on a set of DR Blues and man this thing has a beautiful classic sound. Again I wish I could compare this to the other models but for now just know that in my modest opinion it has a good sound. Not being used to Single coil pickups, I had some great fun getting familiar with them and despite the lack of a strong low end, I can still make it sound good playing metal with the right amp setup.
                      I use a Fender Mustang I and would like to upgrade to the II one day soon. With the right amp sound and effects it can sound almost as good in metal as my ESP with it's dual Humbuckers.

                      Overall, I am loving this little strat and can't wait to get my next one later on down the line. I WOULD recommend this to a friend.

                      Just got this last week in the Pearl White color. It was playable right out of the box. I had my grandson play it for me through a practice amp with no effects and it sounds wonderful, just like the 63 strat I played in the 70's. I have setup several Fenders in my life and this has the best neck I have seen yet. It needs a little work on the nut, and adjustment of the bridge intonation and springs. Other than that it seems to be a very good build and finish. It needs a little graphite in the nut slots, and a little lube under the two string hold-downs on the head to keep it in tune. Any guitar you buy will need these things done to be really comfortable to play and stay in tune. I am very happy with this purchase and amazed at the quality and workmanship. If you always wanted to have a Stratocaster then don't miss this deal! You won't be sorry, trust me I know what I'm saying is true!

                      Let me first say that I've played guitar for over 20 years and have lots of guitars. I've never written a review either. Anyway, I saw a bunch of these Squires on sale for a very low price so I bought the one I liked the best. I replaced the pickups with the Stevie Ray pickups and replaced the back pickup with a double coil that still is the single coil size. This guitar rocks, I like it so much I retired my Gibson Les Paul and play this on exclusively. The other guitar player in the band has 2 1970s American Strats and mine is better; plays better and sounds better. It really is unbelievable, how can this guitar be so good for so cheap. I also sanded off the name Squire and am thinking of getting a Fender sticker.
