I managed to pick this guitar up for my girlfriend to learn on just after they were discontinued. She loves it, and frankly I love it too. Great sound, feel, and value. She really likes the sparkle pink finish, which definitely shines. It's well crafted, and definitely shows the high level of quality Squier is putting out these days. The neck pickup delivers a slightly warmer than vintage tone, and the humbucker handles distortion like a pro. Haven't gotten a handle on the middle setting...ends up a little nasal sounding, but I usually run the pickups alone anyway. I sure hope Squier keeps up the quality...I will keep my eye out for more short run guitars. Give this guitar a try if you can find one.
very impressed with the quality of this instrument right off the rack...neck is very comfortable - the frets nicely dressed. my kidz call it my 'barbie' guitar cuz of the color...hey, i'm 61 & don't have a prob with that ! it looks great under the stage lights ...i played a jazz gig & dialed in a nice sound for stuff like 'stompin' at the savoy','blue bossa & 'perfidia'...next time was a country gig & of course the guitar was right at home with that kind of music ! with the humbucker pup i can get great rock sounds...very versatile gtr...will also go to a heavier set of strings in the future.very good gtr for the price !
Picked this guitar up last week and haven't been able to put it down. It played great after changing the strings to a little thicker guage. That's always the first thing I do, change the strings and then evaluate the playability.PUP's: These Duncan design pup's aren't really too bad, the neck pup in general gives you what you'd want out of a neck tele pup, nice with that twangy bounce. The bridge pup has a decent tone but it sounds weak next the other guitars I play (Gibson Joan Jett Melody Maker, Gibson Flying V w/ Seymour Duncans). I'll probably drop a S/D Tele neck pup and a S/D Distortion pup in the bridge to beef it up.Finish: The finish is outstanding! What else can you say, it's flashy and you can get some really heavy sound out of a Tele with this pup configuration. I love to catch people off guard with a guitar that looks like a delicious piece of candy and then slaps you right in the mouth with tone.This is a bargain! Squier makes the best inexspencive guitars around so you'd be doing yourself a favor if you invested in one.
I bought one of these guitars as soon as they were released and tonight was the second gig I have used it on. So far I have been impressed. The guitar came set up pretty good right out of the box. Although I still have the strings that came on it, (Fender 250L) I do plan on restringing with a little heavier gauge, such as Ernie Ball Skinny Top/Heavy Bottom 10-52.The Duncan design humbucker pickup in bridge position is very full & rich sounding. Very easy to get that fat Nashville Tele sound that one hears in the clubs on the Broadway strip in Nashville.The neck pickup is the standard single coil Tele neck pickup. Although it sounds is well enough, the neck pickup?s gain isn?t up to par with the humbucker. The neck feels great and has a light poly finish, almost like it is unfinished.The striking Sparkle Red finish really looks more violet to me than red. But make no mistake IT IS A BEAUTY! Looks great under stage lights!!My only main complaint is that Fender/Squire should have offered this guitar also in Silver Sparkle finish for us Buck Owens/Don Rich fans. They do offer it in the Strat version.If they ever do, I?ll buy it too!!
