I have a Chinese one, probably from the 90's or earlier 2000's. It sounds like shit, but the build quality as a whole isn't that bad, especially for such a cheap guitar. It's an okay starter guitar, but after playing other, nicer guitars, and then coming back to this one and trying it again, it just sounds horrible with the stock pickups. So bad, in fact, that just holding this piece of shit in my hands seems to stifle my creativity. There's this nice buzzing sound it makes when you aren't touching the metal on the guitar, and there is absolutely no resonance when anything is played. The pickups hardly even pick up the sound the high e makes, and that kind of pisses me off. Overall, it's an OK guitar, i guess, if you're really short on money or just starting out.
A sound a little more opaque than the Fender American Stratocaster but good enough for home recordings.
Easy to calibrate bridge and removable vibrato lever. No doubt the pads are very similar to the original Fender guitars. Get the best sound to combo amplifiers for rooms. It also serves for home recordings.
With a good setup the only issue with this guitar is the pickups.
I know Squiers get a bad rep. But the thing is that with Fenders current state of quality control and such, you're better off getting a Squier Strat than an American Fender. You just need to do a good setup and get the action sitting nicely. A basic truss rod and bridge adjustment for whatever gauge of string you use and you're set to shred. The pickups are a little lacklustre but it costs a hell of a lot less to replace them than buy an American strat. And if you're a beginner, theres probably not a better single coil guitar out there.
I'd still recommend humbuckers to most people but this guitar is nice for pop punk, country and blues.
