Squier Guitars have long been considered nothing more than an entry-level instrument and for decades, that's all that they were. Nowadays, thanks to CNC Machines, better-trained employees, and simple finishing techniques, we are seeing the level of quality raising across the globe. Squiers are made in China and Indonesia these days are they shockingly fine players. While it is true, the metals on these instruments aren't as nice as the American Made counterparts. For beginners, this is not much of an issue. And for more experienced players, these guitars are a perfect way to incorporate an inexpensive version when you need something for maybe just a couple of songs. Also the best choice for modification due to the wealth of after-market parts available these days. Stop by the shop today and compare practically the entire Fender Guitar Line!
