Back in the 1980's, Fender were facing a problem with a raft of companies copying their famous guitars. So Squier was re-established to offer their iconic instruments at entry-level prices. Over the years, Squier guitars have been manufactured in Japan, Korea, Mexico, India, Indonesia, China, and the United States.
With a solid lineup of Squier Stratocaster and Telecasters, with Rosewood or Maple necks, a Squier electric guitar is almost indistinguishable from the real deal.
When you're just starting out on your musical journey, finding the right one for you can be a daunting experience. Squier have simplified the process with their range of 'Stop Dreaming, Start Playing' guitar packages. Designed to look after all the essential accessories you'll need to learn, and paired with a top quality Squier Strat, Tele, Precision or Jazz bass, these packs are a great starting point.
For anyone new to guitar, the Bullet and Affinity ranges are an ideal introduction. The Squire Telecaster, Stratocaster and Precision Basses offer a feel that will become familiar, rich sound and above all they're made to last. Many guitarists and bassists still have their first Squier guitar decades down the line. Real instruments from the company who helped turn the electric guitar into an icon.
Squier have also cultivated their own identity with Custom Vibes and limited special editions. Taking everyones favourite guitar designs in new and unexpected directions. More than that, they perform the incredible feat of offering pro grade quality at a price to suit most any budget.
Regardless of your level or ability, the Squier Strat or Tele represents an economical choice on your path towards an authentic Fender guitar.
