    I guess you can turn it off, but I rely pretty heavily on it. Spelling was never my strong suit. My phone has “learned” that I want to spell it that way and doesn’t correct it anymore.

    J B Squier was an English immigrant, not that that makes a difference

    The English language is an absolute nightmare, 'OUGH' for instance, just so you know, Frank Bough, (pronounced, Boff') was an English sport presenter; "Frank Bough drove through Slough to buy a trough". Slough rhymes with Cow, Through rhymes with Glue and Trough rhymes with Cough, ha theres another one

    I've always pronounced and heard "slough" as "slew". But I'm from the northern US. Maybe we should just say "bog". :)

    If you don't know the story behind the brand, it makes sense to assume it's "Squire" if you think about it. A knight is a highly revered and respected individual. A squire is a knight-wannabe. Fender is highly a highly revered and respected brand. A Squier is a Fender wannabe. So it makes sense. At least to me. :)

    The founder of Squier was a Luthier, theres never been a Luthier anywhere near Fender. Squier is what Fender made it

    I have no idea... Maybe they watched to many old British movies about King Arthur and the Knights Of The Round Table... Haha. Squier was the name of a string manufacturer that Fender bought and then used the name on the cheaper instruments.

    One of the big reason's I think is the fact that the E and R are right next to each other on the keyboard. I'm guilty myself of tapping the R first and then the E because of that very reason. I get in a hurry I guess.

    You can use that to your advantage. If a potential buyer searches the wrong spelling, your ad will still show up in his results.

    Who cares that much about how Squier is spelled in a forum commentary...
    That scores about 1E-42 on the scheme of things Important Tish Scale....

    If I can understand the post, I'm good.... I started with IRC in the wild wild west days of the did some of the other old farts here... Perfectly normal to make up abbreviations and the like... Nobody cared... It was expected... Forums are now a eng092 class? Jeebus... Let it go.... Lots more serious stuff to ponder which color pickguard sounds the best...or why do some say pickguard and some say scratch plate and some just plain don't care which terminology makes you moist..... Peghead or headstock? I don't care. Do we shoot the 'pond'ers' that sling an extra "u" around....use "y" instead of "i", or "s" instead of "c"? You know across the pond where Cookies are Chips, Chips are Crisps, Jello is Jelly, and Biscuits are Scones... Do we take em out for that? Gray or Grey? Take-Out or Take-Away? Who cares.....
