Squier Indonesia? WTH?Squier Indonesia? Sep 19, 1. Jul 4, Buffalo. Since when did Fender have basses made in Indonesia? I just bought at the local shop a Fender Squier maple neck bass that is made in Indonesia. It has a humbuckler silver pickup at the very top of the body. Never seen it before and I am not sure what year it was made. I played with it for a good half hour out of an Ampeg combo and it felt real good in my hands. I needed a back up beater bass and I wanted it to be a precision with a maple neck. I had purchased one of those Classic Vibes s Squiers and canceled the order after I played this from the local shop, Apple Music. I much rather give them business than musician's friend. But, who has more info on this bass? And Indonesia? Since when? Sep 19, 2. Aug 26, Brooklyn. Sep 19, 3. I understand that and was well aware of that. I've just never seen one made from Indonesia. Sep 19, 4. Nov 27, Near Worcester MA. That sounds like a vintage modified P-Bass TB It is a killer bass they were in production last year and still are as far as I know. Check the Squier Web site if you need more info. Sep 19, 5. Sep 19, 6.
Discussion in ' Squier Strat Forum ' started by lance3wittFeb 25, Fender Stratocaster Guitar Forum. Messages: I am building a parts caster from an Indonesian squire strat with two humbuckers as it is it sounds way better than any other squire i have every played It may just be cause I set this one up right and the squire i played in the store where set up bad. Mine also has a really nice bridge that might ave been an aftermarket upgrade, im pretty sure it has a 3 piece body and I was told its probably basswood. It just got me wondering is there anything special about the Indonesian squires? Are they worth more or anything? Whats the difference between it and the mim mij and mik squires? Lower quality woods, lower quality electronics, lower quality hardware, and lower quality finishes. That is the difference. They are still quite nice for the money, though. DiceFeb 25, Age: 58 Messages: I jut put a set of 10's martin darko's on my indonesian Standard and it sounds fantastic. I don't see or hear anything low quality about it DeadfishFeb 25, Note I didn't say that it was a bad sounding guitar - nor did I say that they are low quality guitars. I said low ER quality components across the board - and that is simply a fact. I also have an Indonesian Squier - and I have no delusions about what it is. It is a nice sounding guitar made out of low grade lumber and cheap electronics and hardware, with a terrible mile thick poly finish on it. No offense taken here I'm just amazed with the quality of mine it's an 09 if that makes any diff. I even like the tuners Actually there is one thing I think was rushed in production I don't like the jack plate Messages: 4, The finish on my Indonesian Standard was a nice clear amber color with a poly clear coat that was no thicker than most mim strats. The neck was finished very nice as well with an amber tinted cbs headstock and fretwork was not bad at all. Tuners and two point bridge on mine worked pretty good.

I am looking for a Squire for my sister to learn guitar, i am in the UK, do not want to pay the earthcan i ask are the indonesian ones any good, i have heard that the chinese are not and to keep away from them. I appreciate your advice Thanks in advance. Age: 57 6, I have an Indonesian Squier Standard, and I love it. Full sized body, nice sealed tuners, etc. I replaced all of the electronics on mine, because I wanted to build a different sounding type of beast, but the stock Alnico5 pups were quite good. IronSchefJun 14, Ironically i did it in favor of my old korean bullet strat which was my first guitar and which i have since modded and put more money into. I'm not totally happy at the way my bullet turned out and i'll be redoing a lot of it. I wish i kept the other guitar. Fit and finish is about equal. Pups are identical. The difference between these models is in the neck. The VM has a 21 fret gloss finish on the back in either maple or rosewood of descent quality. Although the one I bought needed the fret edges smoothed a little. The Deluxe however has a really nice 22 fret maple neck with a satin finish and rolled fret edges. So I'm assuming Squier would agree with my assessment.
The Fender Musical Instruments Corporation is the largest guitar manufacturer in the world. The historic guitar giant currently makes countless instruments, from exquisite small-batch Custom Shop offerings to its Made in the USA, Japan, and Mexico lines, and, finally, to its entry-level brand, Squier. Squiers have traditionally been regarded as great starter options for any novice guitar or bass player. It probably wouldn't be too far off to guess that at least half the experienced players reading this article have owned a Squier at some point in their lives, and for many in that group, it all began with a Squier starter pack that included a matching amp. While for decades, Squier's product catalog mostly consisted of basic low-end takes on core Fender models, their offerings have diversified in recent years to include dozens of unique models, including some that were traditionally only available from the Fender Custom Shop. Today, that's exactly what we're going to explore. Like our recent Gibson vs. Epiphone piece, the goal of this article is to give an overview of the main differences between the two for those who are simply curious or for those looking to purchase one or the other. Across the board though, we highly recommend looking at used options when trying to find the best value on any Fender or Squier model. You can look at used Fender and Squier guitars here. Below is a chart of some common price comparisons between new MIM Fenders and their Squier counterparts to give you an idea of the price spread. For our purposes we will be focusing on the standard Squier line, including the Vintage Modified and the Classic Vibe series. This range of prices makes for some hard choices about whether to save up for a more expensive stock instrument or pay a little less and use your excess budget for potential upgrades down the line. Bottom Line: If buying new, Squiers will always be cheaper than comparable Fenders. However, savvy shoppers can often find deals on used Fenders that will fit any budget. Squier has also further defied convention by diversifying finish choices and now offering custom colors like burgundy mist, seafoam green, and Lake Placid blue. Though these models are of a higher-quality than their Squier counterparts, some of them—like the Starcaster and custom set-neck Telecaster—are made in some of the same production areas as Squiers, like Indonesia, China, and Korea. To keep things simple, we'll include these newer models in the discussions of the Made in Mexico Standard line. Once exclusively Strats and Teles, the current Standard line includes fewer overall models than the Squier catalog, but with more variety within each model. The Standard Strat, Teles, offsets, and basses come in a variety of pickup and bridge configurations, from the most s-inspired models to HSH models, with their flame maple tops and Floyd Rose trems. In previous years, the Standard line has included some diverse models, including limited runs with rare colors like shell pink, swirls and splatter paint, and other unique features.
