A safe choice for beginners

There is a noticable step up in quality when compared to the Squier's Bullet range: the neck does not feel like bare wood, the frets are much smoother, and the bridge is well centered. Unfortunately, the first example had too many crooked screws for my liking, two of its control knobs were smeared with some kind of glue, and a few of its tuning machines were scratched up. Thankfully, the second example seemed to have been made with a little more care. Of course, the string ferrules on both of them were different distances apart from each other, but, sadly, that is more often the case on cheap Telecasters than not. Furthermore, the knobs on both examples turned with audible friction, but no crackling could be heard through the amplifier. The nut was cut adequately on both instruments, and none of them suffered from “fret sprout”. The only thing I would change right away would be the string retainer, for it is flat rather than curved upwards (as on Fenders), so the two high strings are resting against its relatively sharp edge, the effects of friction against which can be heard while tuning the guitar. Left as it is, it might cause tuning instability issues as well as string breakage.
The tone of the humbuckers is a little on the “brighter” side. Definitely not “muddy”. But, as I say, while it is easy to turn down the tone knob, it is impossible to add non-existent treble.
Based on my experience with the examples of this model, it should be a safe choice for beginners because both instruments were made well enough to not require any adjustments or repairs. Both could be played right out of the box. The defects were purely cosmetic.

Bad fret ends but still good.
Too much G.A.S. 26.11.2021
It amazes me that a 260 Euro guitar leaves the factory with blood cutting fret ends??? Why doesn't the final inspector quickly fix this problem???
Otherwise this is a nice guitar to play and sounds sort of like a cross between humbuckers and single coils which I am very happy about. I've always liked the look of 72 Custom Tele's and if ya can't have a real one this is as close as you will get and still have some money for beer and pizza.

Ich bin einmal mehr überrascht, was für ein makelloses und gebrauchstüchtiges Instrument hier wieder von Squier abgeliefert wurde. Nach dem Auspacken machte ich mich auf die Suche nach den üblichen Verdächtigen, die man in dieser Preislage ja eigentlich immer findet: Schlecht gekerbter Sattel, fiese Mechaniken, schiefe Schrauben, hohe Bünde, scharfe Bundkanten, Dead Spots auf dem Griffbrett, billige Saiten, Pickups mit Schlagseite, hässliche Maserung des Halses, usw. Zu meiner Überraschung ist die Verarbeitung dieser Gitarre absolut tadellos, hier gibt es wirklich gar nichts zu kritisieren, selbst die Saitenlage und Intonation waren ab Werk nahezu perfekt. Auch klanglich hat mich das Instrument überzeugt, das Klangbild ist ausgewogen mit gutem Sustain in allen Lagen. Auch die Pickups klingen ausgewogen und für diese Preislage mehr als zufriedenstellend. Sehr angenehm auch der Tummy Cut auf der Rückseite des Korpus, welcher deutlich den Spielkomfort der Gitarre erhöht. Kurzum, die Truppe von Squier hat ihre Hausaufgaben gemacht und hier einen 1A Job abgeliefert. Danke dafür.
