I bought this guitar a little under a year ago from a buddy of mine. I plugged it into my Marshall MSII and the sound was amazing. It may bare the Squier name but it beats any Squier that I have ever seen or played.
It may have the Squire nameplate on it, but it came from the Custom Shop of FENDER..this guitar stays in tune,has a fast and comfortable neck, you can play for hours on end, and the best part..it sounds really good!Nice lows also.I put a Roland GK-2 pickup on it and the combo is lots of fun. I have the black one...quality finish. Duncan pickups are fine for my amps...I run t on a Fender 212 and combo peavey head using a equalizer. Find one, grab it, and sit down not worrying about how you spent gobbs of money on another brand. Its not a Gibson, but you can take your woman out for a fine time on whats left in your wallet.
It's been almost a year since I first sent in my review on this axe. This thing just keeps sounding better & better (maybe it's my playing improving..ha!!) This guitar is a bargin...get one while you can still find one...they don't make them anymore...limited production, the Esprit was designed in the Fender Custom Shop, it shows too...rock on ya"ll...
Just bought this guitar, great, great value! Immaculate finishes, features, and sound.
I have had this guitar for over a year now and I still find a new sound with it often. The tonal versatility of this guitar is amazing. It can go from clean to jazz to hard rock with no problem. The pickups are great but will not suit anyone looking for a metal tone. The body is big. Mine was beautifully finished, and I could not find even the tiniest of scratches on it, the binding was done better on this guitar than on my Gibson Les Paul. The finish is beautiful. Mine is the Walnut Satin finish. If this guitar had Fender on it than I would not hesitate to pay a lot more for it. The pups are basically Duncan 59's, just made by FENDER. This guitar was made in the FENDER factory.
I looked at a couple other guitars before settling on this one. I looked at schecter (nice!) and ESP/ltd (nice but sterile). I ran across this one by accident online. I knew I'd love it and other than a little fret buzz when it arrived (always set your guitars up if they are shipped) it plays and sounds beautiful. The p/ups are pretty much a pair of 59's (they don't have a model number) and sound very warm and punchy too. I tend to prefer fatter wider necks and this has one but isn't overbearingly so. I needed a versatile guitar and this is it! The luthier that worked on it was even impressed and he didn't even know what it was other than the 'Squire' name on it (he did a setup for it)! Don't let the name Squire deter you. These guitars are made extremely well. I get a lot of compliments on it from people on sound and looks. I play through a Traynor ycv210 and they are made for each other. a fantastic deal for this guitar!
The only thing that sucks about this guitar is that it has "Squire" written on it, and people usually associate that with "cheap". Do not let the name fool you, this is a quality instrument. The finish is superb, the pickups sound wonderful and I have had no problems of any kind with it whatsoever. I didn't buy it from MF which was my only mistake (I payed a lot more) but I wouldn't trade this guitar for anything.
I bought one of these, in antique burst, straight from the NAMM show, in Placerville, CA. Everything on this guitar is immaculate. The tome is a bit on the trebly side, but the middle pickup position is bell-like and full. I've played out with it in a gold country bar/jam setting several times, and it rocks. I love it!
The first one I received had some sloppy fret work. Returned it through the always excellent Musician's Friend Customer Service department and was thrilled with the replacement. Absolutely beautiful to look at with a great sound. If it had the name Fender instead of Squire on the head you would think nothing of paying three times the price. Get this one, you will be happy!
