Quite honestly I find these Squiers have the feel and the sound of a Pre-CBS 1961 Fender ST I used to own. I cannot recommend them highly enough, after over 30 years of playing electric guitars, they are really amazing, I just wish that they had been around in the 80's when i was looking for a decent Stratocaster. In 1983 I purchased a Tokai TST50, this guitar is as good and I still have a Tokai TST so keep this Squier as a guitar for everyday use. get one before they all go, surely to become a future classic.
