My Review Of The Squier by Fender Stop Dreaming, Start Playing Set: SE Special w/ Squier by Fender SP10 Amp

Fender has always been one of my first choices when it comes to electric guitar manufacturers, and the guitar package offered by Squier — which is made by Fender — here reaffirms why I love them so much. The guitar package in question is the Fender SE Special Strat With Squier SP 10 AMP Value Pack. The guitar itself has a bolt on maple neck, a rosewood fingerboard, and an agathis body. It has a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard which boasts dot inlays. One of the things I really like about this package is the fact that you can get the guitar in either white, black, or the classic brown sunburst. All three look great, but my favorite is the sunburst. So, what is it that makes me think that this is such a good package? The first thing is the price. This package is under 200 dollars, and it is tough to find a decent guitar for under $200, let alone an entire starter package.

Packages like this are not hard to come by, but in my experience they can often be expensive. However, the sound alone from the Fender SE Special Strat included in this back With Squier SP 10 AMP definitely makes this guitar package worth it. The great thing about this guitar is that the sound is incredibly versatile. For example, if you want a clean sound then it is not hard to achieve, and the same can be said about getting a muddy, distorted sound. This is something that can be difficult to find in guitars that are around this price range. Most guitars are going to be good at one thing or another, but this is very versatile. One thing that did slightly disappoint me was the amp. It isn’t a bad amp buy any means, but typically, Squier amps are awesome and this one fell a bit short. One other thing to mention is that the guitar needs to be retuned more often than others, but this isn’t a big deal with a tuner handy.

The Verdict

This package contains everything that you will need to get started playing guitar. Overall, it is a very good package that offers great value for money, and though it has some faults, it’s definitely one of the best options you’re going to find as a starter pack in this price range.
