Thanks a million to all of you for the good advice that you gave me on Squier Talk. I've finally felt confident and informed enough to buy my first Squier! I wouldn't have done it if you hadn't been there! I ordered it a few days ago when - again thanks to you - I learnt that they were being discontinued. I had been saving for a guitar for a while and I finally "bit the bullet" and ordered one of the very last ones in my country (it was right before falling in love with an Epi Les Paul Standard (!) which would have been out of my price range anyway). It arrived at the music shop this afternoon. Originally I would have preferred a lighter colour to match my place, but this guitar is still extremely beautiful, even glamourous imo and looks very Gilmourish as it is, so I've changed my mind on the black finish. My first surprise is the guitar's weight. It feels really heavy. I can't weigh it for real since I don't have a scale, but it feels heavier than my friend's Epi (?!) and as heavy as a Classic Vibe strat. Maybe it's just because of the shape of the guitar... My second surprise is the maple neck. Not only is it gorgeous, but it's imo as good as the neck of the Deluxe or of the Classic Vibe. It's extremely smooth, the wood grain is fab, the finish isn't very thick nor yellowish (it's obviously lacquered - and feels sort of slippery compared to my acoustic - but it looks more like a satin finish colourwise), and, at the very top of the fretboard, the fretboard edges are actually slightly rolled. It feels as luxurious as the Epi's neck which was super comfortable imo. The nut is 42 mm wide and the neck makes barre chords very easy (although I did prefer the chunkier feel of the Epi). My third surprise is the place where it was made: Indonesia (I thought they were made in China?). The number starts with "ICS18", I think it means that it was made in 2018. My fourth surprise is the action: it's really low. The strings feel much lighter than my acoustic's (which are, I think, equivalent to a "light" gauge). They feel even lighter than the nylon strings on my classical guitar (so they're "extra, extra lights"?). I've just tuned it up with a clip on tuner and it sounds lovely - not as much sustain or bass as the Epi, though. Of course, it doesn't have the same pickups (although the sound is actually surprisingly close - maybe it's my amp). Anyway, it probably needs a good set up to sound right. My fifth surprise is the tuning machines. They seem excellent. My sixth surprise is the high E string _ it's really close to the fret board (only two millimeters away from the edge) whereas the low E string stands a bit further from the edge. It's still completely playable but it will probably need some getting used to. Maybe it's tweakable? The nut seems standard, so could it be linked to the string spacing at the saddles? I'll try to post pictures (I don't know how to do that from my phone yet). I asked the salesmen at the shop if they could do a setup for me, but they said that they wouldn't as they were piano specialists. Their guitar tech is currently away. He should come back in two weeks. I might try to setup the guitar meanwhile but I'm not sure I have the right equipment nor the knowledge (I looked at one of Frudua's video and he uses a tuning pedal. I only have a clip-on tuner). There are 3 springs at the back of the guitar to hold the bridge. It's tightened and it doesn't move at all. A fourth spring is included in a little bag. Any idea on how to set up the guitar without a pedal? I probably should check the intonation... Sorry for the length of this post and thanks again to all for your never-ending patience, your wonderful information, your good spirits and your kindness!
