  • The Squier '51- couple of years later...

    So, the honeymoon never ended w/ this one- I still love playing my "higher end" guitars (Ame. and Japan Strats, Gibby LP, Carvin, etc.) but I gotta say, this Indonesian made cheapie is still one of my favorites. It just has for a lack of better word, MOJO. Terrific playing neck, incredibly versatile, great resonance, stays in tune like a champ, and the cheapie pups just work for me. There still some love out there for this great lil' guitar??

        Still have my blonde. Been considering selling since they have been going up a bit and she isn't getting played since I got my strat.
        Great guitar so I have been reluctant. Way better than a $100 guitar.

                        Love mine. After a couple of mods, this thing sounds and plays great.

                          I agree it has mojo. I love playing mine because it just has a unique thing going on. My one complaint is that it's a little thin sounding sometimes.

                            I bought one with a frontman amp for $80 or $100 (can't remember) a few months ago. I really liked it, but ended up selling it just because I didn't play play it much.

                            They only thing I didn't like were two spots on the neck that had holes filled with wood filler. Very small and not a big deal for such an inexpensive guitar that offers so much.

                              Sold a blonde one recently, but kept the SB. Used them at gigs & for recording.
