"Better than a Squire"

Yamaha produced a huge number of these guitars I believe starting in the 80's and 90's. They were in just about every single music store in the world. The were extremely cheap and just about anyone who saved up a few weeks worth of wages could slap down enough to own one.

They are build similar to the Fender Squire Stratocatsers. The are pretty loosely built in a way that they feel a little slapped together in the factory by some machine pumping out several hundred a day.


Body Alder
Neck Maple
Fretboard Bubinga
Pickups 2 single coils, 1 humbucker
Hardware Chrome
Controls 5 position pickup selector, master volume, master tone
Frets 22
Bridge Vintage tremolo
Scale 25 1/2"


The tone of these are much better in comparison the the HSS Fender Squire guitars. The pickups seem to resonate much better and have a better attack feel to them. They still seem to carry quite a bit of noise overall, but they have easily be switched out for a Seymour Duncan pick.

These guitars work in just about any situation you put them in. Since you have a humbucker in the bridge and two single coils going up you can pull off just about any tone or style of music you have a desire to play. These are versatile guitars and will serve the owner well with good tones for the money.


The value of these guitars is what they are known for. Just about anyone can afford them. I would recommend this guitar over the fender Squire guitars of the same price. They have just a little bit better feel to them that makes me choose these over the Affinitys. They still are beginners guitars and you will feel that if you have any experience with real American fenders.
