Frequently Asked Questions about Squier Guitars

This is largely a matter of taste and practicality but there are certain selections that make a lot of sense. If you are on the smaller side, have a look at the Mini Strat or Bullet Mustang since these both have shorter scale lengths so should prove a lot easier to handle than guitars with a standard scale length. If size is not much of an issue, we'd recommend the Affinity Telecaster. It is simple, solid, classic looking and easy to play with a good sound.
Fender own the Squier brand and all Squier guitars and basses are based on original Fender designs. Squier use trademarked Fender names, body shapes and headstock shapes. Therefore, are they 'real' Fenders? We'd say yes, they just don't carry the Fender logo on the headstock. Squier is the 'official' affordable range of Fender designs.
Maybe, but with the level of quality inherent in Squier guitars these days, we see no immediate need to do that. Try a selection and choose the one the feels and sounds the best to you. This will mean you are playing a guitar you really like and will likely keep using for a long time. Plenty of semi-pro and even pro players use Squier guitars so don't be deterred!
The most popular Squier electric guitar is actually the Mini Strat, followed by the Bullet Mustang. The Affinity Telecaster follows close behind, as does the Standard Stratocaster.
