A cheap but resonable guitar, probably better than lots of the cheap package deals. Great for beginners who don't want to be put off by buying something that is almost unplayable.
Sorry but normal price - dearer than others who offer free shipping

Nothing more than a starter guitar either to be honest.

and ?
everyone has to start somewhere, and especially for fickle kids / teens you don't necessarily want to be splurging any amount of money on something that may never be picked up again after the first fortnight
I love my Squier just as much as my high end gear. They're really on top form at the moment so this is a hot deal for a very nice guitar. Suited to all players, not just beginners.

Agreed. Excellent guitar. Great action and pickups are more than acceptable for the price.
you get good squires but some cheap squires, so cud be best having a look in a music shop rather then buying online.
Title should really be Squier by Fender.
Great price for a competent beginners axe. At this price it may even be worth grabbing to cannibalize the body (Alder?) and and neck.

Bottom of the squire range but still a great starting point

My first guitar was a Squier and they're great beginners axes IMHO. Far better than these starter package deals you see from Home Bargains etc.

They play really well and actually inspire you to pick them up and practice which are the most important things if you're just starting to learn.

real title should be squire, licenced from fender.
i had a squire and it was pretty shocking, id suggest paying 30 quid for a crap guitar on ebay local and then if its for you spend about 300.
I can recommend Freya guitars on Ebay if you're on a tight budget .

hmm LP solid mahogany, maple top, set neck, 200 squids. certainly sounds promising...

edit: although i worry slightly that they use the fact that it ships with a 4 quid set of strings as a major selling point :P

Can see the logic, but I know quite a few people from having worked in the trade who were put off by buying a cr@ppy guitar to start off with purely cos it was so difficult to play! This seems as safe a bet as anything if you're insistant on buying blind from the internet. Personally, i'd take a friend to a music shop and see what's there.

ive never had stock stings ive liked
and no one needs to spend more than 4 quid on ernie balls, unless theyre recording and want the perfect sound.

cheap guitars are very hard to play for a beginner.
your better of getting a cheap classical guitar for like 30quid and learning on that, see if you fancy it then buy a more expensive electric guitar.
2 advantages to buying a classical:
they are easy to play
and the nylon strings dont hurt as much as steel strings
This seem to be one of those products which is worth paying slightly more for at your local music shop, for the help they can give you after the sale.... fitting new strings, etc. Bicycles can fall in to the same category.
The same website has a range of Epiphone Les Paul Juniors for the same price which seem decent too.

For most folk, even beginners it's a personal preference choice between a gibson and a fender so it's great you can now make that choice for only £89.

My first guitar was a Hohner Rockwood Les Paul copy, and i still have it now, sat in the corner. No point selling it, it's worth more to me than what i'd get for it! Some beginners guitars are spot on.

i've only ever used Super Slinky's, that's fine, but i just wonder why on earth they're using it as a selling point on a guitar that has plenty going for it already.
just seems unnecessarily gimmicky

it's really bad, but i have an urge to try one of those white strats, just cos...

i got one of those years back to see if i could get on with an LP style guitar
nothing too special about them, but boy are they easy to play
passed mine on to the missus' eldest when i bought my Tokai, cracking wee guitar for a clumsy teen to thrash the hell out of

That's the WORST guitar you could buy for a beginner, a cheap classical? Are you serious?
Just bought on of the squier vintage 70s strats, it's an amazing guitar for the price. (I also have a Les Paul standard)

A great alternative is the Yamaha Pacifica, it has to be one of the easiest guitar's I've ever played. They go for about £100 brand new

ive been playing for years and cant even play an F on a classical.
if you want a cheap learning guitar, get an accoustic, get a steel string, ive got an F310 (about 40 quid second hand)
or buy a dirt cheap second hand local pickup.
and if you have a friend that plays guitar, get them to set it up for you.

+1 on starting on acoustic. Electrics are much easier to play, thinner necks, lower action, thinner string guage, so if you learn on electric the transition to acoustic is harder. And starting on classical will get you nowhere. Unless, you know, you want to play classical...

-1 on the fender though. I tried every model I could under £150 in a fair sized music store when I wanted to go electric, and the best was an Aria STG 003, got that used for £60, but even new for £75 is better than the squire models that are £100+. They ride on the prestige of their brand name, that's all

Not a bad guitar for the price but the Yamaha Pacifica is a more consistent product if you can find one at a similar cost.

problem is that everyone knows it
you'll pay 150 and up for a good one that hasn't been totally trashed..
the guy probably meant acoustic rather than classical tbo

well ian hunter said his axe went cold on all the way from memphis in the 70s
Another +1 for learning on acoustic.
-1 for learning on classical! My first guitar was a classical acoustic, as a young teenager, trying to learn how to play power chords and constantly breaking those thin nylon strings was a nightmare! It's only now I can appreciate a classical guitar.

All of my electrics have been Squiers, they are great for beginners, and I merely stepped up the range to one to a Squier Telecaster Custom II, probably one of THE best guitars in the budget arena. If you can stretch to that, get one!
There's not enough guitar deals on here. Have some heat

What a terrible idea! Starting off on a "30 quid crap guitar" is a surefire way to put a new player off learning!
Good guitar, especially for a beginner. If you don't stick with it, you haven't lost a lot of money.

The first guitar i ever played was my mates Encore Strat copy with some twisted bits of metal claiming to be a floyd rose. It was dreadful, weighed like an elephant and played like a pile of saws. Worst guitar i ever played, but it never put me off. Egged me on if anything! Beginnners guitars these days are awesome compared.

I've read a few Total Guitar magazine reviews of Squires put up against other guitars from other brands, and the Squires always seem to win. At Total Guitar at least they seem to think Squire are offering the best budget guitars at the moment.


Having said that, my advice to anyone would be to buy a better guitar second hand rather than a lesser one new. Not only are you getting a better instrument for your money, but you are losing ZERO money doing that, because a s/h £100 guitar is still gunna be worth £100 a year from now. The moent you open a new guitar box however the thing has lost at least 33% value right there. As a lot of first time guitar buyers seem more concerned with not wasting money on an instrument that doesn't get played rather than buying something really nice to play, buying a new guitar is just the wrong way to go.

First guitar was a Marlin Sidewinder c.1986 pastel green, shortly followed by a Yamaha RGX312.
