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.

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 bought the antique burst with rosewood fret board.It arrived this afternoon at my door step, everything was packaged tight and sound. The guitar is beautiful not a scratch or blemish no where.

    So I tuned it up and played it through my Epiphone 15 watt amp with treble and overdrive. It sounds so good I could not put it down, only now to write this review.

    Intonation is spot on the Fender strings are fresh and sound great. the neck is straight and string height is spot on per Fenders factory specs.

    Every note is clean no buzz, no high frets or anything to nit pick about. This humble little Squire plays and sounds better than my friends American Stratocaster.

    My friend is ordering him a Squire standard in antique burst also, said that he is shocked at the quality and fit and finish are all top notch.

    The alnico pickup's sound so good it is hard to describe, modern yet that original early sound that everyone loves from a Fender Stratocaster, It's that good for sure.

    It's all Fender original sound and playability, why is it sold at such an affordable price? It is put together in Indonesia. "Rest assure" It is a genuine Fender through and through.

    After all Fender put their name on the head stock, plus it is backed by Fender's warranty and Sweet-water has a free two year warranty back up also. Get this guitar you will not be disappointed. Fender you nailed this remarkable Fender guitar.

    Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    E,B, AND G strings are cut too high in the nut, which can be repaired ...however the guitar de-tunes itself after just a few chords or notes and I haven't touched the tremolo bar! The E,A,and D strings may be cut too deep, causing high action to avoid fret buzz which means the first 3 strings are in the atmosphere and play SHARP from the nut to the 5th fret and FLAT after the 12th...also requires too much relief in the neck for comfortable play...so far it's a know show.

      Comments about Squier Standard Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      Some people can get pretentious about the Squire label and sometimes rightfully so. Some of the really low end Squires i've tried I was not too impressed but I like the Standard alot. Bought mine in a music shop in Oregon and the sales guy had me close my eyes while he played a Fender Strat and the Squire Strat and sound wise i could not tell the difference. They have a good feel and look too. Nice finish. Felt solid and well built. I'm not like a ripping lead guitarist or anything, mostly just strumming and vocals, and for that this guitar performs really well. If you are a guitar hero shredder you might find some nuances you don't like, but overall I'm really happy with mine. Great guitar for the price.

        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 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.

                  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.
