Comments about Squier Joe Trohman Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I received this guitar 2 weeks ago and I've been playing it a lot. The HSH configuration is just amazing giving you a very versatile guitar. Excellent quality for a Squire. It came with a good intonation and ready to play. My only concern is the Pickup Selector, is kind of weird. But, I'll get used to it.
Bottom line, a very good instrument for a pro guitar player running in a low budget.

        Comments about Squier Joe Trohman Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I bought this guitar for my son as a guitar to learn on. He wanted a tele with some crunch to it. When I seen this guitar I figured I would give it a shot. I love this thing. I have been playing for 20 years and I own a Gibson Les Paul, 2 Fender 72 deluxe teles, and a fender Nashville Tele with custom shop pickups. This guitar is as fun to play as the rest. Period. I am actually thinking about buying one for me.

        Comments about Squier Joe Trohman Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I was shocked after I got this guitar out of all the packaging( very well packaged). It tuned right up. I replaced the strings with a heavier gauge Dunlop Heavy Core 10-48. Tuned it up, minor intonation adjust and it's perfect. Just a great guitar, esp given the price, but this is a high quality instrument. Doesn't matter anymore where its made. The pickups and electronics aren't quite US quality, but that can be easily remedied. It's really good as it is, but with electronics upgrade it is on par with any US made Fender. Like the 5 way rotary selector, can get that 2/4 strat sound. This guitar complements my CV Tele perfectly as I have upgraded single coils on that one. I'm very happy with my purchase, got a seriously good price too. MF did a good job on this.

        Comments about Squier Joe Trohman Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        This guitar sounds & plays great out of the box as well or better than much more pricey guitars.
        The h-s-h pup configuration reminds me of the Nashville Tele; so you can get Strat sounds as well as fat Tele sounds. I would prefer a 5-way knife pup selector switch to the stubborn 5-way knob, though. It is a terrific value, & sounds better than some of my US Deluxe Teles! The neck has a nice feel.

          Bought this guitar after reading positive reviews about it.
          I must say that I agree with the positive reviews. The guitar played
          great right out of the box, and the build quality for a guitar at this
          price point is fantastic. The available tonal options offer a nice variety
          of sounds. You don't have to pay a lot to get a quality guitar. I recommend
          this guitar to anyone interested in a telecaster.

            Comments about Squier Joe Trohman Telecaster Electric Guitar:

            I am no Squire fan although I have bought several of them to sell to others. Well now I am more open about Squires. This is my new grunge guitar. I just came home with this after three hours of GC tryouts. It was discontinued and I picked this over a fender tele deluxe signature chris skellet (?)
            That solid white guitar looked good and this guitar played sounded, was unique and the neck was way better even the salesman found the squire a better guitar and I was happy because it was have the price. If you like the tele shape and want something different buy this guitar. Then you have money left for lessons or partying.

              Comments about Squier Joe Trohman Telecaster Electric Guitar:

              Best bang for your buck- Its basically a 72' deluxe for half the price.. I got mine used but it still had the plastic on the pick guard, I don't think it was played much at all.. Crafted in China and everything was dead on, the neck is faster than expected and tuners stay tight even with a lot of Bluesy bending.. Pick-ups are decent and a 5 way knob for instead of a switch,the switch on top is actually a Kill switch, I have grown to like it set-up like this. easier to cut power on big bends and then turn it back on, a lot faster and easier to do this way than with the Volume control.. Volume , Tone control Pots are good quality and work on the lower end 1,2,3, then power up smooth and evenly.. I don't normally buy a guitar if I cant play it first but at these prices you cant go wrong with this Tele.. Great Gigging,Practice,Jamming, and definitely the best Student guitar your going to find!!!
