    I keep reading about how some new Squires like versions of Jazzmasters/Jaguar etc are excellent guitars.
    But; my only experience is ancient, and they were terrible then and only a few years ago a friend bought a Squire 'pack' for his young son and to be honest, it was the worst 'Strat' I've ever touched. Horrible sky-high action that was worse than a Black-Diamond stringed Stella from the late 50's. (if you're old, you'll get that)

    I've had a few and still own a few. I will admit I had a predjudice against Squiers and non-USA Fenders for years, but they have won me over.

    I 've owned a '97 Squier S-100 Strat, a Squier Standard Strat, a Squier M-75, and a Squier VM Tele. The last two were really decent guitars but GAS intervened.

    I currently own an '83 MIJ Squier SQ series Precision, a Squier Tele Special and a Squier CV '60's Strat. The MIJ P is the nearest thing to a early '60's Precision I've ever played. The CV Strat gets more play than my Fender Strat and the Tele Special is a cool good-sounding guitar.

    The proof is in the playin'.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    Its not the make or model but that hands that play it. I had a cheap o college logo Epiphone single pickup guitar like a melody maker not too many years ago and I thought it was kind of crappy when I go it. I did not do anything to it so I can't speak to an upgrade or mod on it but when I saw Mike Campbell playing one with Tom Petty and rocking it out I knew at that point it was the player and not the axe. I was totally impressed and I can't say for sure that Mike didn't have that thing cusomized but I actually believe that he was making a statement with that cheap guitar.

    David Lindley is another one who used to show up a lot with some of the weirdest guitars ever made, and he could sure make them sing!

    Yep, I saw that concert as well. Looked like he was playing an Epi Les Paul Junior. I actually have one of those. Not a bad guitar at all - and believe it or not, I kind of like the cheap stock humbucker in it, although I bet Mike Campbell at the very least put a new pup in the one that he's playing here.. (But maybe not!..)
