My gearhead salesguy picked out this (and a Squire Vin/Mod/Tele/Thin electric) as a practice "beater" while I learned to play open-tuned slide/rhythm, and I gotta say he did jake work with both. But the high action and heavy strings out of the box on this platypus work well for slide, otherwise yes, you'll HAVE to change/adj. strings. The Tele Thinline needed adj. UP and heavier strings, btw--I bought black-coated, .13-.53's from Black Diamond Strings, which look as cool as they sound. You can't beat either ax, at least for my purpose or price!
Well I'm not gonna lie, this is my first acoustic anything, but I love this beast of a guitar. I know its not ment for this but I slap on the overdrive from my amp and rock out but if you do wanna do that, be sure to take the gain down or you'll get some epic feedback. It has a nice sound when all of the sliders are set in the middle though if you take away the bass and crank the trebel it sounds kinda cool. ANYWAY this is a sweet guitar for the price.
I just got this today, and I had to change the strings because the 1st (E) string broke right after I tuned it. But since I also ordered strings, that worked out okay. It plays really sweet and works so well with my rather small hands. My daughter also loved playing around with it as well. What's great about it is that you can still hear it just fine without it being plugged into an amp, but the sound is killer with the amp turned up.
Since my rotator cuff surgery I have problems using a full size acoustic guitar. This one feels like my Tele and has an OK acoustic sound for it's size.Change the strings!Plug it in and have some fun!
First, change the strings! They make a thin elec/acstc sound even thinner! After that you have a very comfortable playing guitar. Unplugged it sounds OK, just OK. Plugged in, it sounds great. For the $$ you can't beat this.
I don't normally play steel-string acoustics. Mostly because the bodies are big, uncomfortable, and awkard. That's where this Squier comes in. It's not too much bigger than a regular old Strat, and as such, it fit me like a glove. It's very comfortable to play, and the extended range the cutaways offer makes a huge difference if you don't have the monstrous hands to play up there on a Dreadnought. I tried playing "Clap" by Yes and "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd, and I loved how it sounded.
Just bought this guitar and started playing it. The guitar really shines when you play it through an amplifier. The sound is amazing, i love that acousti-lectric sound.
Bought a scratch and dent model as all I needed was a stand in the corner, I don't care about it guitar. Well times change and now it is my prime practice guitar. It came with high neck action, but ten minutes with sandpaper and the bridge is where it should be. I adjusted the truss rod, put Cleartone lights on it, and it now plays like my G&L. The tone is OK, though not good, but it sounds great plugged in. The price makes this a steal. By the way, I'm still looking for that scratch or dent!
I had always wanted to get the fender version of the stratocoustic but lacked the cash to get it. Then when I found out that squire was presenting a version of the insrument I jumped on the chance to get one. I only playt guitar as a hobby so I was stoked when I got it out of the box. Unplugged it sounds pretty much like any other accoustic guitar. Plugged in for my ears it sounded decent aliitle better with some reverb and chorus thrown into it. If your on a budget like me this is your guitar. or if your a pro and need something as a warup intrument this is good to. What really amazed me was the lightness of the instrument the neck is thinner than most accoustic-electro necks and you have access to all 21 frets. The only drag about the instrument are the bridge pins when I changed the strings on the guitasr for the first time I had to remove the pins with my teeth. So replace them if possible. all in all I'm pleased with the features but am still trying to housebreak it tone wise.
when i bought this guitar i was hoping i wasnt making a mistake because of bad reviews i had read,but when i received the guitar i didnt really see what all the fuss was about.its a great looking guitar and i think the sound quality ,acoustic wise, is good.this guitar is definitely not a guitar to play with alot of distortion,lots of feedback with too much distortion.this guitar is worth the money if you want a great looking acoustic.stay away from the electric side.
