WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT

The Squier brand always delivers excellent, budget versions of Fender instruments, and this cheap guitar is no exception. It offers that famous, Fender Fat Strat tone, as well as superb build quality that ensures it will deliver long-term performance. The fact that it comes with lots of useful accessories is another big plus. If you're a fan of Strat tone, then this is the best budget option, in our opinion.

If you're a fan of the famous Telecaster tone, then this is the budget choice for you. It is lightweight, easy to play thanks to the jumbo frets, and it looks fantastic too. We also love the amount of control it offers guitarist over tone. A superb instrument, in our opinion, which delivers typical Squier value-for-money.
