My first Squier... and I am very impressed with the quality and workmanship. This thing is beautiful (3 color sunburst one) and I see zero defects or flaws. I just turned her up and bam, everything was perfect. The intonation is *spot on* - very impressed. The neck has that classic Fender sort of glossy stain on it - looks fantastic. The neck is the perfect size for my average sized hands. The frets feel great and seem as well crafted as my higher end guitars. The guitar sounds good - but if there is one thing that could be better it would be the pick-ups... they aren't bad, but they are not as articulate and bold as they could be - but that is all a matter of taste. They look cool - I love the silver covers with "Squier" imprinted on them. Anyway, this one is a definite keeper at a great price. Good job Squier.
