I bought this guitar on a whim because it looked so cool. To start with the Good: let me say this guitar feels as good as any guitar I've touched. Twenty four easily accessible frets with a lockiing trem system! That's nice. I replaced the pickups just for personal taste, not because it was necessry.The bad: The open B-string buzzes. I've brought it in for a Setup, and they were unable to do anythign for it other than to say that because it's Squier it might be flawed workmanship. It's not a show-stopper as it only happens if I hit the string open, but I'm not always looking to play that note elsewhere on the neck. It's a cool sitar-kind-of effect, just not always welcome.Overall: buy it, but know what you're getting.

After owning my first guitar (Gibson epiphone ) for just over a year I almost bought it (Then I went back and bouht it)there are only 2 things I would change first I would so change the knobs for distortion and volume sure just chrome is ok for some people but not me and the last thing I would change would be the head I mean not many people want a ball at the end the neck. I give it a 6 star.

The Review

By Crazed Punk

from Crown Point , In

This guitar is awesome no matter what style of music you play. this guitar is definitely the one to get the job done. it can hit amazing highs and lows to help you finally express yourself. Other squier guitars are awesome, but this guitar is my personal favorite guitar to scream my way of life.

Coolest guitar, But..........

By ILoveCatsandPie

from Littleton, CO.

I got this guitar as a christmas present. I asked for it cause it looked cool and had Floyd Rose Trem. and dual humbucker. I love the neck on the thing and the 24 fretts. The only bad thing is that the Floyd Rose on it. I have problems with mine, when you have to change the strings on it, you have to fix the trem. cause it is all wacky and stuff. even if you use the same size strings over again.

perfect guitar

By phoenix-ueyTx

from wallace N.C.

i was looking around for a guitar and i stummbled across this. This is one of the best sounding guitars i have ever heard, downtuned a step or standard. i play with a grunge kind of style and i have to say this is the perfect guitar for that. Deep, yet still clean sound, you can go from head-smashing metal to a clean alternative sound. I give it a perfect 10.

Squier Showmaster Skull and Crossbones

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I used this guitar in the local shop and before I played it I was very sceptical but then I graced that neck (through a Fender 65R and Marshall AVT150 Half-Stack) it was freakin sweet! It plays nicely sounds great and the Floyd Rose allows you to bend the strings more effectively. Great for all status of players. Great Buy!

Great Guitar for the money

By GuitarManMessina

from Tampa, FL

I was looking for another guitar and I happened to play this one at my local music store but they wanted more $$$ and would not match the price found here. This guitar plays and sounds better than alot of the expensive Jacksons I tried out. It has a nice speedy neck, medium sized frets instead of those nasty jumbo ones and a licensed Floyd Rose tremolo as well. Simply a great guitar for the price. I can shred all day long and play the chunkiest rythmes as well. Very good value. I am not disappointed with my purchase.
