    Hi guys, from Birmingham UK. I realised the other day I've been playing guitar for fifty years! And I've owned lots of all types and makes and styles. Time was you needed a name guitar to get anything playable and by no means were all of those name guitars great and some were ghastly.
    These days we're really spoiled and I've just bought a couple of Squier guitars because the value for money - in terms of construction and playability is quite astonishing.
    I've fair collection of guitars but I've become bored with expensive luxuries that are not twice, five times or ten times as good, as the price might suggest. So I'm selling off a few and I'm going to buy a collection of cheaper guitars that I can enjoy without having to worry about them.

    Hi & welcome to Squier-Talk. Many of us here have experienced a revealing education about inexpensive guitars vs. far more expensive 'name' guitars. Enjoy your exploration of the very playable inexpensive guitar world. Mostly have fun.

    Fifty years! You should do something special to celebrate. I started playing at 13, and now I'm 56... Well actually I put it down for a long time and just picked it up again this year.. But it's been a lot of fun catching up.

    And my Squier Bullet Strat was a very pleasant surprise. It handles better than some more expensive axes I've owned. At this point I swear by it and my Marshall Code 25.
