This guitar is cheap but do not be fooled by the price. The pickups sound amazing and the overall tone is astonishing. Amazing quality overall and it defy what people say about Squiers being cheap and sounding bad. This is even better than some Fenders i have tested out in my local music stores. It has the traditional twangy sound of a telecaster. The only downside of this guitar is the glossy, sticky neck which can sometimes get in the way of playing. Overall this is an amazing guitar. I would definitely recommend people to try this out even though they have a higher budget or already plan on getting a Fender.
