An EXTREME axe for those who like to live on the edge!
A deeply recessed, Floyd Rose-licensed double-locking trem lets you plunge into the inky depths or soar into the thin air. A fat Duncan Designed Detonator humbucker at the bridge complements the deep cutaway and 24-fret neck for radical, screaming, high leads. Jason's own esoteric design graces the wak high-gloss finish on the deck. Single coil at the neck provides edgy, clear rhythm sounds. Alder body and maple neck with a rosewood fretboard.

I bought this guitar as my first re-entry into electric guitar-land on a tight budget. Before I was forced to sell my electrics 8 years ago I played Andersons, Ibanez and Fender and was picky about my axe. I was skeptical I'd find anything cheap that wouldn't just depress me, but this guitar really is a nice axe Squier or not and you can't beat the price.Pros are a fairly fast neck, great action (after some work) and a floyd rose tremolo stock. Design is cool and overall the sound of the guitar is solid for tone and sustain.Cons are the initial setup needs work, the Duncan pickup is a bit noisy and frets on mine needed work. The 13th fret was slightly higher creating a buzz at low actions. Also wish they chose the push whammy bar instead of the screw in because it always leaves a bit of a rattle without taping the threads.Overall, this guitar is awesome for the money and less scrupulous players will love it. For a pro, this is a second guitar worth buying if you don't mind setting it up and replacing the hardware mistakes. I have no regrets.
I have always played Gibson's. I've had my SG for over 20 years. So I'm very surprised at how much I like this Fender product. This guitar plays very well. The neck is a thinner faster style neck, which I like. The pickups are decent, nothing special. I have only had it for week so I haven't had time to set it up right yet.I'm sure I can get it to play even better. The Floyd Rose works very well as you might guess. The bottom line is it's not the best guitar I've ever played, but it's a great buy.
I have a stock Squire Sub Sonic that came without a wammy bar, but I can only imagine how much better it would be with one so thats why I strongly suggest getting one (especialy one with a whammy bar).
When I saw this Squier,then I saw the price, I bought it just to see if I could tear it up. This is one solid little gem. The tone is fabulous and extremely versitile. I received this guitar yesterday, and I played it all night and never plugged into my effects system! It has great action and great sound. I am placing this guitar next to my higher priced Fenders.Billy Woods-The Mighty Surf Lords
