the strat I just got is a 70s vibe Squier—it’s excellent. I did a quick setup, and it plays great. I decided to do some standard minor upgrades to it too, adding locking tuners, a graphite tree, and sanding a bit of the high gloss polyurethane finish down, so the neck plays a bit more smoothly. they’re quality. I’d suggest getting stuck down the youtube review rabbit hole for a bit to get a sense of what you can expect.
Yeah, those necks can feel really sticky. I’ll check out the Squiers then. It’s a problem living out in the sticks as there’s no way for me to try them other than ordering them from Thomann then returning them if they’re crap. A lot of hassle. Tried a few in Stockholm at the weekend but I’d made my daughter walk all day and didn’t have the heart to make her go any further to the “big” music shop. The staff in the smaller shops were a bunch of unfriendly pricks. Millennials. You know the type. That didn’t make things easier.
ha, yeah, nothing is worse than bad salespeople. I’ve gotten used to buying instruments online after doing A LOT of homework, because of it (I REALLY hate dealing with salespeople
). thankfully I’ve only had one lemon so far, and since that one was through Amazon, the return was fairly painless.
