    Hopefully a fatter neck than the FSR Esquires.

    Maple fretboard and I’d be all over that.

    Maybe if one pops up used later on I can justify picking one up and slapping a new neck on it.

    Those do look sweet.

    This purchase is my first from Chicago Music Exchange, and my very first Squier brand guitar.

    Shipping was very fast and the guitar was double boxed. It arrived unscathed and in perfect condition.

    I am thoroughly amazed at the playability and quality of construction of this guitar. Lots to like, including the silver anodized pickguard, the top binding, the vintage style tuners, the amber tint of the neck, and the sparkly black paint job.

    Factory setup was just fine. I see no need to make any adjustments. CME has a pre-ship inspection (like Sweetwater) and they didn't miss a thing.

    On a guitar at this price point, I never make any modifications. Its just not necessary, as I have a lot of high end Fender Telecasters so there is no need to try to turn this guitar into one of them. I very much appreciate what this guitar is, and I get a lot of pleasure playing it as is.

    If you are on the fence about one of these, don't worry. I have been completely satisfied with this guitar to the point that I am fighting the urge to buy another one in the Butterscotch Blonde finish. And I need another guitar like a hole in the head!

    Agreed on all counts. I've also got a Squier Thinline Tele and I love it too. Like you, I've also thought buying another one and putting different strings on it or something. Glad you are enjoying yours.
