This is an awsome guitar for any beginner. They are easily obtained and they sound great for their price. They also are supposed to have a high resale too so if you decide guitars arn't for you then you won't be out a whole lot of money.
Price: $200.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Birthday gift
My squire has 21 frets, 6 strings, 3 pickups, the controls consits of one volume, two tone controls
I love the playability of this guitar. The only flaw I noticed when I got it home was that there was a nick on the back. I think the guitar plays as well as my friend's mexican strat. The only thing I don't like is the dark fret board cause I have trouble finding the strings on it but then agian what am I doing looking at the fret board anyway?
For a squire mine sounds great. I've only been playin it for a couple months but I have played my friend's fender mexican strat and I think my squire sounds just as good. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who wants to play but it uncertain if they will hold thier interest.
So far it has held up pretty well, the black finish shows scratches and finger prints so unless your set on black I would recommend another color.
perfect beginning guitar. although I have much more expensive guitars that play twice as better. I have a emotional bond with this guitar. I always go back to it some how.

for 200 this is a great guitar
good starting guitar. very fender looking.
for 200, this thing sounds like it should be worth twice the price.
I've beaten the crap out of this thing
You could get a cheaper guitar from Ibanez or LTD, but the Squier is made by Fender, which means it should stay w/ you for a few years. A good christmas, chanuka, or Kwanza (sp?) gift. I think it also comes in a package w/ an amp for a little more $$$, which is an even better gift.

This guitar is alright for rock or blues. it has two single coils and a humbucker, a cheap tremolo, and 21 frets.
Its ok, not very heavy thanks to the hardwood body. The boys at Fender do a good job with this guitar, and it plays well.
C'mon, its a squier. With enough distortion you won't notice the "tinny" sound.
Suprisingly strong, some pieces can fall off though, as they did on my friends squier.
