i bought this guitar because of its great looks and awesome price tag. i did have some uncertain thoughts about it tho (it is a squire) this is probably the best squire tele i have played. the bridge pickup it awesome and the neck is decent for what i do. i dropped this guitar on stage a couple days ago and it suffered a very minor nick on the top side. it didn't go out of tune at-all. this is totally worth the price if not more. when i first opened the box i pulled out the axe and held it up. perfect paint job and so shinny. the worn out control cover added a nice touch, the back of the guitar is so cool and the gloss doesn't pick up any scratches from my belt buck. very very durable. i recommend this to anyone who can a lift it b play it and c love it buy it !!!

I have had this guitar for a few months now. The jack where you plug the 1/4 cable in was loose, right out of the box as well as the volume knob (that rolled onto the floor) when I first strapped this axe on. I have several telecasters, loose plug-in jack, is a common problem with them, no biggie. The axe had several small and common problems out of the box, that a beginner might not know how to repair. Its also a really heavy guitar, when compared with my other teles or all my (30+) other guitars for that matter. The paint/artwork on the front is, only, on the front and the way the paint is edged,( where the artwork ends and the paint begins is kinda' suspect. As a seasoned 30 year player I could handle the small problems and knew what to expect from this axe. For those looking for a starter guiter, I would suggest an affinty series fender tele or strat, as I have had great "outta' the box" luck with them. Overall it looks way cool, has the standard "great" fender sounds and with some initial setup work, will serve you well for years.

Good bang for the buck

By dizkid

from LA

Just got my Squire obey tele..a scratch and dent one at that..I figure, its already got distressed hardware..why not?..Out of the box I tuned it and it played great, not a custom shop by any means. Needs some fret trim on edges, but tone and feel were all there. Well worth the money.

Obey tele is a good value

By dont/obeyquestion/authority

from Belton, TX

See all my reviews

I recently purchased this guitar from Musicians friend. Over all I was pleased with the guitar. It needed to be set up because it had some fret buzz but that is to be expected on a guitar of this pricing range.Tone is good out of the box. I wanted a little more versatility so I went online to musicians friend and ordered a Gibson Angus young humbucker in the bridge and a Fender custom shop Texas special strat pickup in the neck position.I changed the tone knob out with a Gibson tonepot/push/ pull switch so I can change the humbucker from series to parallel ..Man this thing screams now and has the tone of every guitar I ever wanted .even with out these changes the guitar is a good value.Im going to buy the strat next and give it the same treatment.good luck

best ive played

By Irishpiper

from Chatham NY

See all my reviews

first of all, you cant beat the look and feel of a tele. second put sweet graphics on it and you've got one fine guitar. i just received this guitar last week. and i just ordered a second with the other set of graphics as a backup. ive played strats usually but the first tele i got made me swear to the tele gods to never play a strat again. i play instruments and this is now my second favorite to play(cant diss my bagpipes). but guitar was the first instrument i ever played so it holds a special place in my heart. ive been playing for 4 years and my father for 30. we have a recording studio in our basement so my life cant get any better.

cool graphics, cool guitar!

By FRETWERX-76VQ8

from Rochester, NY

See all my reviews

The graphics were what made me buy this guitar, very cool, the hardware is decent and the guitar plays well right out of the box. The only issue I had was that the guitar needed to have the saddle screws shortened so they didn't hurt my right hand while playing. The bridge pickup has lots of guts, the neck pickup is a tad on the weak side (already replaced it with a hotter one as I use the neck pickup more than the bridge pickup).

The Screamer...

By Zerep11

from Arizona

See all my reviews

I have the Propaganda Version amongst other Strats, a CV 50's Tele & Les Paul, & can only say this - Whenever I am in the mood to wreak an all-out, genuine "Sonic-Havoc" on a planetary scale, this is the one. It has the nastiest, most glorious tone & drive ever, plus it is built for speed & it is also built like a tank. So watch out Angus, her I come...!PS: Ernie Ball 2223's work the best on it.

What is not to like?

By SweatYeti70

from Casey IL

See all my reviews

Super solid construction and it looks amazing but there was rust on the neckplate (I guess to add to the rustic/aged look). I was completely blown away by the clarity of the single! That Humbucker has got some serious crunch to it! I bought replacement pickups to drop in this thing but I have serious reservations about that now! I have nothing bad to say about this guitar!

Very Rockin' guitar!!

By Rockboy562

from Long Beach,CA

Got this guitar about a month ago, have to say it totally rocks. I had a small problem tuning out of the box, but no big deal. Once I played it a few times, this baby burned like no other. This guitar stays in tune for days, and the sustain is for eternity. I play punk and hard rock, when I plugged in at practice, jaws dropped. I was worried at first to buy this guitar, but was well worth the money. I highly reccomend this guitar, you won't go wrong with it!!.

What A Surprise

By RoleModlin

from E-City, NC

We bought our ten year old son one of these for Christmas for his first guitar and I must say that I am impressed. Several years ago I owned a Squier Strat for about two weeks and thought it was the worst guitar I had ever played. I was really hesitant about buying this guitar but decided to get it because my son is into skateboards. After fooling around with it I'm thinking about buying one for myself as well. It's a tough little guitar and it looks cool. I couldn't believe a stock Squier had pick-ups as hot as these in it.Very good job on a budget-priced guitar.

This is a very bad guitar.

By DJ Bathory

from Arkansa

My guitarist has this guitar, which he bought new. Since practice is at my house, he leaves it here all the time, so I practically own it. Anywho, I've been playing for a bout six years, and I'm a real tone stickler, this thing is about as noisy as they come and is not worth $250 dollars. I put it through my kustom kba100, with my bossme50. I use it on a cheap sg and my wonderful hagstrom, with no noise ever. This is just a bad guitar. If you want a cheap guitar, epiphone or cort is probably your best bet.

Squiers Best!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is the best guitar squier has made!! I'm a Gibson, Les Paul, and Dean type of guy, but this guitar just stuck out to me!! Its was just busting out say play, love, buy me!! The finish on the obey is amazing and looks out of this world! Its like a collage of tons of icons!! The neck plays good and is natural wood that feels amazing!! The features i rated a 5 cuz the finish, the control knobs and pick-ups are average but not bad!! Overall its an amazing guitar!!

SIC guitar

By Zombie'sbassist!!!!!!OMG

from NJ

I bought this guitar just yesterday. It is lighter than most guitars Ive played and more comfortable than other telecasters Ive used, the sound is great with D'Adorio strings, it sounds almost spanish and shreds with distortion! the input comes loose sometimes but thats nothing that a wrench cant fix.

Well done squier!

By newsquierlover

from Sunny California

See all my reviews

I got this baby last weekend as an early fathers day gift. I have to say I was disappointed by the looks and the squier sign. My wife doesnt know much, so she asked for a tele at a local music store and got me this one. After I plugged it into my fender frontman amp I was really pleased. I used to hear bad stuff about squier but they make good guitars. The Duncan H is awesome, and at the neck position you still get a good twang. I liked the guitar so much that I am planning on ordering the one with the H in the neck position (not the obey series, I really dont dig the graphs). Get this guitar, if stolen or lost I would repleace it right away. Great value!

Sweeet sound

By TdTdCs

from Germany

See all my reviews

I always wanted either a Telecaster or a Telecaster type so my wife got me the Obey Probaganda model for our anniversary (yeah, I know, everyone wants a wife like mine) and when I plugged it in to my amp it sounded so sweet it just blew me away even with the stock strings and pickups! I was amazed because I thought my amp was too cheap to get any good sound out of it, come to find out it just needed the right guitar and this was it. I recommend getting this one for any player at any level, especially those on a budget because you won't be disappointed! It is a good deal and good product.

Sweet Crunchy Tele from Squier

By neechee.net

from Atlanta

I liked the Propaganda so much I got its brother Collage. The Duncan Designed pickup rocks. The finish and hardware are really nice and with one of the typical mf discounts, this guitar is a steal. I gigged propaganda the first week I got it and it stayed in tune and rocked hard all night. The look might not be for everyone, but in this age of universal lies, propaganda seems like the right guitar for my band. I still use my goth les paul, but these guitars complement each other well.
