I'm something of a minimalist when it comes to gear and possessions in general. Right now my only electric is a Strat "fakecaster) in a nice buttercream color. But since 1977 I've always loved Teles and usually had at least one. I've owned two Squier Standard Teles in blonde and thought both were great, even stock. Both of them were older...not sure of the years. I thought it would be cool since the blonde pretty closely matches my Strat. Might even get a Player Series P-bass in buttercream. Complete the trio. Can anyone speak to the current crop of the Squier Standards?
