  • Squier '51 guitars?

    Yeah, I'm not gonna ask this in EG, cause I know how they tend to slobber over cheap guitars and treat them like they're better than they are sometimes.

    So, yeah, how are these things? Play okay? Sound decent?

    I have one that's modded with a Warmoth neck and DiMarzio PU's and a different bridge, but it really wasn't a bad guitar stock for the dough. If you can get one for around 100 bills go for it.
    Warmoth/Fender Strats x 4, Ibanez RG, '87 Marshall JCM 800 2210, Marshall 1960a with WGS Vet. 30's x Celestion 75's, Genz Benz G-Flex 2x12...and the rest.
    good deals with: Further Lo, Norton666, downer01, joaocunha, charvelstrat81, Deucejanisch, LIBBY!

      My g/f has one and it's pretty nice. I like the neck and the pickups are actually decent. Lots of parts out there for modding too.

        I don't think they that bad. A little on the heavy side. They almost always need the action set lower after you buy one. But other than that they feel pretty solid.

          Cool. In case no one saw my spam post, trying to find a cheap replacement for my other guitarist's tele that got stolen
          It's no MIM tele, I know, but I didn't really think his was all that great anyway, so maybe this will turn out to be a better guitar E-mailed the guy who's selling this thing on CL, hopefully will pick it up tonight if nothing better comes along.

          Hoping it will be gigworthy, if nothing else but temporarily.

              Oh, I forgot to mention that the bridge on them is kind of meh. Guitarfetish has a nice replacement for it for like $12, though.

                If it's anything like you guys describe, I may end up going Indian giver and making it an indefinite loaner instead of a gift

                  I had one that came with a birdseye maple neck. I hated the shape/feel, otherwise I would have kept it and just sold the body.

                  They are cool enough guitars, and sound rather decent. Great to mod if you can grab one on the cheap, but be prepared to do some setup depending on who you are buying it from.

                    The good news is, it could not possibly need a setup worse than the guitar it will be replacing

                      As a temporary fix it should be acceptable enough. IIRC mine was rather bright, but not so much so to where I felt like I had to immediately swap the pups.

                      I loved the pickup combo though, I still want another hum+single guitar.

                        I've had 3. they were hit or miss.the one was really nice. the other two were good after some fretwork.

                        fun guitars, dirt cheap and with some work are gigable. But I like gigging with cheap guitars. nothing to worry about

                              Put simply, if you can buy one for $100 it's worth it.
