Perfect and Beginner friendly
beth.butch00, 19.11.2019
As an acoustic player, this is perfect for my first proper electric guitar.
The feel to it is perfect and it's not too heavy but definitely sturdy enough.
The tone is awesome and I'm considering getting a second in a different colour just because I love it so much.

Overall:
This is a decent choice for a first electric guitar. With a pickup swap and a little TLC, you won't need to upgrade to a more expensive one later.

Neck:
Fender modern C-shaped with a nice satin finish on the back and a beautiful Indian Laurel fretboard with medium jumbo frets. This is perfect for me, but neck preference is entirely subjective.
The fret ends are a little rough but you can fix that quite easily yourself with a filing block from the hardware store. Out of the box, the fretboard looks dry and dull but after wiping it with lemon oil it looks and feels amazing.

Body:
Slightly thinner and lighter than a regular fender tele and is very comfortable to play standing up. The glossy poly finish is a great platform for stickers and it is also easy to wipe clean. The bright orange color is great and draws attention to you.

Pickups:
Cheap ceramic pickups that sound muffled and produce plenty of feedback noise. This noise is amplified when using pedals and really ruins what would otherwise be an excellent entry-level guitar. A few months in, I replaced them with Fender Original Vintage Tele PU (50’s sound) and now this Tele sounds like a professional instrument. Regardless of your personal sound preference, the stock pickups are really awful so I’d recommend looking into aftermarket pickups as I expect you will want to replace them sooner rather than later.

Hardware:
Cheap stuff for sure but the hardware gets the job done for the most part. In my own experience, the tuners, pots, PU selector switch and output jack work fine. However, one of the bridge saddles needs to be readjusted regularly since it keeps loosening and messing up the string height. Thankfully, the Allen keys needed for bridge adjustment and truss rod adjustment are included in the box. One caveat is that the hardware seems to be non-standard sized, so when installing the replacement pickups, I needed a drill to stretch the screw hole a few millimeters on the bridge plate. It may be a similar deal for replacing the rest of the hardware. I had to get assistance from a friend since I am not great with power tools, but this may not be an issue for you.

Ausgezeichnetes Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis
Bike_NW, 15.01.2020
Und nicht nur das, denn sie sieht auch richtig cool aus in diesem Orange. Ich habe erst vor ca. 3 Monaten mit Gitarre angefangen und bin sehr angenehm überrascht, dass ein qualitativ hochwertiges Instrument so günstig anbieten kann. Toll, denn eine 'echte' Fender hätte ich mir in diesem Stadium sicher nicht gekauft. Hier war die Hemmschwelle sehr gering. Ich habe auch zuerst mal mit den Augen eines versierten Heimwerkers auf die Verarbeitung geschaut und kann daher zu gitarretypischen Kriterien (noch) nicht so viel sagen. Sehr sauber und fehlerfrei verarbeitet. Der Lack absolut einwandfrei. Da gab's keine mechanischen Mängel die mir irgendwie aufgefallen wären. Skepsis ist zwar berechtigt, aber in diesem Fall unbegründet - ein klarer Kauf! Ich liebe es dieses Teil zu bespielen und den fetzigen, rockigen Klang der Single-Coil's wirken zu lassen. Ich habe dazu einen VOX Adio Air GT und mit dieser 'Handtasche' kann man in Kombination mit der Squier ein wahres Klanggewitter erzeugen. Extrem motivierend für ambitionierte Anfänger ;-).

Une guitare Fun qui fait le Job.
Lorean, 21.11.2020
Une bonne guitare d'entrée de gamme : Lutherie correcte. Toutefois j'ai dû faire quelques réglages dès la réception de l'instrument : Resserrage de certaines vis et blindage des micros, réglages des pontets et changement des cordes.
Une fois réglée, accordée et nettoyée, la guitare est super, elle sonne bien et est agréable à jouer.
Très inspirante pour la Pop et la Country Rock.
Son look flashy est Fun ; Je l'ai personnalisé avec des stickers de Halloween.
J'en suis content. Le rapport qualité prix est bon.
