A well built guitar, with some technical flaws. Stock pickups are weak, crappy bridge, mediocre tuners, and the finish on mine decided to develop a huge crack from the tremolo to the side of the guitar (may have been my fault, undetermined cause as of right now). I essentially modded it to the Kurt Cobain specs. It plays incredibly, and is built incredibly solid for being a Squire. Squire has really stepped up their game, rivaling some of Fender's MIM stuff. All in all a good guitar with some modification.
