I want to buy a guitar and amp, have set my eyes on:


Both of these sound good and have received excellent reviews, with that in mind and their fair price they seem like really good things to get as a first guitar and amplifier. After all I'm just going to try and learn how to play so I don't want to spend too much.

Do you guys have any place to recommend that sell one or both of these online AND that ship to Sweden?

this is a strange place to ask for guitar buying advice. that said, if you want mine as a terrible self-taught guitarist of around 10 years, spend a little more on the guitar. spend a lot more if you are financially able. if i could give advice to myself back when i first bought a guitar, i wouldve forced myself to spend at least 1000 USD. at worst i would not go below 500. if you happen to be rich, i would not go very far over 3000, as you start to see serious diminishing returns.

you can always flip a good guitar, but it is impossible to resell a crappy squier. it never makes sense to buy a cheap guitar for two reasons:

  1. if you stick with guitar, you will inevitably replace it and want to get rid of it, but you cant because no one will buy it.
  2. good guitars will always sell, even if you abuse them.

i have bought and sold many guitars in my time, but guess what, i still have my very first guitar. a cheap ibanez strat copy, because it cost next to nothing and would sell for less than nothing. now it takes up space in a closet.

also, the quality control on entry level cheap guitars like squier is abysmal. theres a good chance the frets will be poorly cut, amongst other things, making it not only more difficult to play, but likely to tear up your left index finger as you move along the neck.

as for shipping to sweden, i honestly cant say.

I was recommended MusiciansFriend.com by someone. I dunno if they ship to Sweden though.

Local shops, bought mine used and got a good deal considering it was half retail. Then again, I'm in nyc.

I don't know if the 20th Anniversary editions of the Squier Strat were special or how they were different from regular ones, but I've had it nearly 18 years and I still play it every day, it's a nice guitar to play
