    Back in 2000 I bought a Chinese made Squire standard Fat strat (two humbuckers) which, I was very impressed with in every way except the paint job wasnt top notch but it wasnt bad either. The neck felt great, no sharp frets sticking out and it sounded really good. So now, eleven year later I thought its time for a single-coil strat and I didnt want to pay a Fender price. So I looked into the Squire standard Strats.
    After reading many good reviews on them which I wasnt surprised at all since I was very pleased with my own Squires Standard Fat Strat, I decided to order a cherry burst one with single coil pups.

    When it arrived and I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised by how much prettier it was than its picture.
    Beautiful stain finish and beautiful wood-grain.
    I put it through my usual close and careful inspection. I kept on looking and looking.
    NOT A SINGLE FLAW OR IMPERFECTION. NONE!!!
    The craftsmanship, fit and finish is top notch.
    100% perfect.
    Yes thats 100% and not 99%.
    I was amazed!
    How can that be? Thats so rare.
    I kid you not the fit and finish to this Chinese Squire is better than my American made fenders strat and Tele.
    Action on this guitar is awesome, fret work is superb, feel of the neck is fast and the sound is that very famous and loved strat sound.
    I bought this strat on sale but I wouldnt hesitate to pay its full regular price, ITS WORTH IT!

    At the same time I ordered this strat I also ordered a Squire standard Telecaster which was made in Indonesia and it did have that famous Tele sound but the craftsmanship on it wasnt as good as this Chinese made standard Strat, so the Tele went back to the merchant.

    I can honestly tell you that Im more impressed with the fit & finish of this Squire than my US made strat. The US made strat has a bit hotter pickups though.

    Im sold on Chinese made Squires.
    3 single coil pups, 5-way switch selector, fast and smooth satin finish neck, rosewood finger board, and great fret work.
    Top notch, better than my US made strat.
    Excellent deal!

    I found a wood chip embedded in the clearcoat on the back of the body of my guitar! Plus, the woodgrain didn't match too well, [I've got the sunburst finish] but I could live with that no problem, that's only cosmetic. THE THING that bothered me was the first fret was not straight - you could see it was not straight with the nut and the second fret! *BIG PROBLEM ON THE SQUIER* because the fingerboard and neck are integral - unlike most guitars, where you could replace the fingerboard. Because of this, the neck is junk!! The other thing is that one of the bushings in the body, where the bolts for the tremelo go, were so loose I could see it moving everytime I used the tremelo! Later, I loosened the strings, and NO WONDER IT WOULDN'T STAY IN TUNE, I could pull the tremelo up and down with that loose bushing!! Other than that, it's a great guitar. I mean, the bushing could be fixed pretty easily, but the neck was no good because of the first fret. It had a really good Fender sound, meaty headstock, nice finish on the body, fast neck with a flat oiled finish, decent machine heads, decent electronics - just too bad about the fret!

      This guitar came ready to play, right out of the box. All I had to do was tune it. Why pay $$$$ for a "real" Fender logo. Excellent value for the price.

      Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I've owned a few of the Squier standard strats and they are good but definitely need set up and fret leveling to get the optimal performance out of them, once that's done they play well. I've Also owned the Squier Deluxe series and they are much better due to the Basswood body tone. These Standard strats are good bang for the buck guitars and with a proper setup can easily do Band club duty... or mod the heck out of them for kicks and grins too.

      Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      I have played guitar for 6 years, after having an Epiphone Les Paul and a Dean Vendetta I was looking for something with a different feel. Ive messed around with my friends strat and decided I needed to have one. I found this and decided I would buy it. When it came in the mail it looked great except for the bridge was completely jank. it was bent up and it wouldn't allow me to tune my guitar. I called MusiciansFriend Immediatley and they handled the problem within a few minutes, sent me a new one then I sent mine back no questions asked. I was very impressed with their customer service. I finally got my second one and it looked great and played nice, Except for some fret buzz. Once I took it into a guitar shop to get it set and the action lowered, it sounded perfect and played like butter. Overall I am definitley impressed with the guitar and the customer service

          Well, I could have expected Fender to send Jeff Beck over for a few lessons---but he was busy. This guitar plays as well as an expensive model (I started in 1965 with a 1962 strat----could have bought a house with what it's worth now!!). Point is---YOU play the guitar. If you can't flame this model, a high priced model won't help. You should have it "set up" though--little adjustments--new strings. Have fun with it. You won't regret it. PS I never give a 5 star rating to anything. Cheers!

              I bought this for my Son-In-Law to learn on.... Before he received it, I adjusted the truss rod properly (not done at the factory...they're miserable), adjusted the bridge to match, and the tonation....Played it LIVE on stage, and it was not bad at all. For the money, it's one of the BEST bargains out there...and a NICE fit and finish.

                Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

                My Son and I each have one of these, Mine is a SSS made in 2001 and my Son's is SSH made in 2007, both from Indonesia. Both were bought new, I have owned mine since late 2000, my Son's since 2009. Nice finish, very solid. Both stay in tune unless you do a lot of tremolo work. Twin piviot bridge is great, I like it way better than the vintage one on my MIM Strat. The single coils are not Hot, but, that is the way stock Strat coils sound on any regular Strat. The Bridge humbucker on the Fat is decently hot, my Son plays Iron Maiden with his and it works great. We love these guitars and they are worth more than the asking price. I highly recommend Squier Standard series and higher models.

                Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

                I have had this thing (black metallic, maple fretboard) for a short time and it rocks!

                -Neck: The reason I bought a Strat in this price range is I wanted something with an unfinished neck, and this is perfect for me. The neck is thin, fast, smooth and non-finished, which I love! The only thing about the neck is the frets are a little bit sharp, and they kind of stick off the edge of the fretboard. But this is really no big deal.

                -Body: Made out of agathis, the weight and feel of it is fantastic. I'm a Les Paul player of almost three years, and I wanted something different, and this is just what I was looking for.

                -Hardware: Still has factory made hardware on it, but I don't care. The bridge, machine heads, pickguard, pickups, knobs and whammy bar all work awesome. The only thing I really don't like about this guitar is the whammy bar gets in the way when you want to do some palm-muting stuff, but I'll get over that soon. And even the strings; I'm going to swap the factory strings for some Ernie Ball Slinkies soon, but until then, these Fender gauge strings are holding up really well.

                -Sound: People say single-coils can't handle lots of distortion, and they're right. That's why I use as overdrive pedal, and it sounds fantastic. It kind of sounds like Dream Theatre's John Petrucci (my hero) if you ad some flanger to it, which is quite cool.

                -Overall: Like I said before, I'm an avid Les Paul fan, but this guitar works just as well if not better than my Epiphone Les Paul. I would definitely recommend this to anybody.

                  see above
                  Basic stuff, i like the 2 point tremolo, nothing fancy. What you'd exepect.
                  I got mine used and it was still in great condition, nice finish, nice frets, aesthetily it looks great. the hardware is not great... the bridge looks nice but and will keep the stringsgood but, the action is impossible to set low without getting frett buzz. the intonation is east to set and that's good. My least favorite part: the pickups. They suck soooooooooo bad, like a bullet strat pickups, they kept the same horrible pickups and just added a nice looking bridge, a nice finish, and boosted the workmanship quality bit, BUT THEY FORGOT THE PICKUPS!!!!
                  A little pricey for what you get... If you want it get it used, i got one used for a low price and i felt like i only got a bit more than my moneys worth... get a bullet if you dont mind the quality
