oby-one33g's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" really not bad"

Squier Showmaster HSS
Manufacturing in Asia

22 frets (very very rare fender), rosewood handle
the wood is basswood, the neck and body.

type vibrato bridge has two screws (as if it was bought a floyd rose, gave a vibrato Stratocaster with a luthier)

configuration is HSS pickups, the neck pickup and bridge pickup is not bad but the microphone through lack of dynamism.

selector is a 5 position pickups, 2 knobs (1 volume, 1 tone)

UTILIZATION

the handle is nice

the body and handle are perfectly balanced, a guitar is quite light compared to my Epiphone LP.

access to acute easy

SOUNDS

to me to play, it's a great guitar. I play Satriani, of Hendrix, Van Halen's ect ...
-For the neck pickup, the bass is good for playing Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan
-For the bridge pickup to the Van Halen, Steve Vai or Satriani, not bad, it lacks some midrange but still really pretty

I play a lot no effect on a marshall amp MG30DFX (if it is with a dunlop cry baby, a MXR boost, overdrive, delay and reverb)

I use the amp for two settings are saturated
-Gain: 7 Bass: 8 Medium: 4 Treble: 4 Volume: 3 Short Delay: 3 (one of his close Satriani)
-Gain: 8 Bass: 8 Medium: 4 Treble: 6 Volume: 3 Reverb: 2 (sound similar to Van Halen)

OVERALL OPINION

for 6 months

yes, but on the ibanez

it lacks a push-pull to split the bridge pickup, too bad

or the price I had was more than interesting, but at the price or it can be found on the net like leboncoin is expensive.

Squier Showmaster HSS
Made in Asia!
From simple vibrato Squier, 22 Cases (rare among Stratocaster!)
HSS configuration is humbucker, Simple and straightforward.
1 Volume 1 Tone GENERAL AND Gnrale slecteur with a 5-position (H + H + S SS S S).
Micro ok for this price.

UTILIZATION

A tire information I have 6 years of guitar and my tastes in guitar Contents are (Les Paul, Stratocaster) and brands (Fender, Duesenberg, Lag ...). I can give an opinion on this little guitar to Get You Started in music is nice!
For me, the handle is pleasant conditions for the polishing lightly a couple times to amliorer your performance (I learned this maneuver in a guitar magazine!) nevertheless have this price is correct.
CASC to treble is relatively simple (as strat requires) and the advantage of this model is the 22 box to quickly bend the 21!
For sound I reversed the two pickups and it sounds simple Rolling Stones since dead! Finally you will not reverse the typical sounds of the Fender version price!
The vibrato is simple and allows for some effects trmolo nevertheless have not a Floyd Rose and I can not do very long Van Halen =)

SOUNDS

Best with this guitar is to play with:
To clean: Fender
For crunch: Fender, Marshall
For the disto: Marshall, Hughes & Kettner
Nevertheless have friends is a Start! Even if this price and this configuration it is rather versatile Hoping it will not make the death or other mtal billeveses! Blues, rock, reggae and will have to put lots of chases autoriss by this guitar.
For my part I play on a Hughes & Kettner and Fender and a zoom G2 and the result is nice.
The Blues: 9 / 10 with modification.
Rock: 7 / 10
Reggae: 9 / 10
The Hard Rock 7 / 10.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 years, I had other guitars but this is my first electric and one of the most effective!

Today I am nevertheless have Plutt Les Paul it's good to have for concerts or studio a small versatile guitar can troubleshoot! Or to Get You Started is a good solution because given the versatility that price go ahead and try!
One last precision if I change is that I am a little DIY and APRS as having purchased I am pay another, I squier modified without my mid-measures, but now I regret only one thing: Not having had Plutt!
One important thing: Always try your future guitar "annoy" the sellers because you come back often without buying. Sr very much of its choice.

Mi(ni)me's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Squier Showmaster HSS
- Made in Indonesia
- 1 humbucker (bridge) and 2 singles
- 5 potions Swith
- 1 volume and 1 tonalitbr /> - C-profile maple neck
- Rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets back in points
- Basswood body
- A Floyd Rose tremolo that dsacorde quite the beast (no blocking Systm)
- Black finish with kinds of Glitter
- Tte reverse

UTILIZATION

- I find the handle trs enjoyable, with a profile in C.
- CHAC in acute is easy to say anything.
- It must break all three kilos.
- Sound is not dsagrable, it's okay for beginners.
- It n'tait rgl not well behind the easel t lev 2 meters and the strings of the handle, but a passage in the music store in the nearest you everything is finalized!
- The painting has barr on the bort of the cavity and the micro switch (blue paint underneath, normal?). Short finish level is low rev range.

SOUNDS

- It is well suited my style of music I play mainly rock and metal. The clear sound, the distortion and crunch are ok. When I play the first solo master of puppet I think the sound is super nice (''insane''channel on my amp).
- I played on an amp Line6 Spider II 30 Watt and I get good sound with the humbucker (the top are really not simple).
- Dsacorde vibrato guitar, but otherwise it is good agreement if we do not have the bends zakk wilde: D.

OVERALL OPINION

- I use it for a little over a year
- What I like most is well Vidament the handle, which I find super enjoyable (I jou a storm of a friend and a round beam c'tait ...! ).
- The only guitars that I tried before a silent yamaha pacifica (whose handle is more lgrement bomb is the same shape, type strato) and a storm (with a super fine Corp. odd shape, but the handle c'tait a beam).
- I think it costs 160 new maintenent so qualitprix the report is not bad, just be you have better luck finding a good RULES;) .
- With the exprience I have not chosen one but the ibanez (even thinner handle what seems).
- APRS one year of practice, the grate does not satisfy me more, I'd like to have a level of something better, be more in gear to beginners.

EDIT: There is a rdition of this model. A priori there are many amlioration, especially with a real floyd A test!

Pilcrw's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Squier Showmaster HSS
-Made in China (or around ...)
-22 Fret with Micro HSS configuration (single, single, humbucker) (good enough for his reggae, ska, blues, and I truove the sound for big sound and quite right too)
Bridge-type "Floyd Rose" which for my part am not at all the tuning
-1 5-way switch, 1 volume knob, a potentiometer tonalitée.

UTILIZATION

The handle and handle the game quite enjoyable in the acute and easily accessible (body fender strato ...) but does not do very well in his, uh ... the weight It suited me me ... using the Floyd is nil, I never managed to leave my tuning every faith that I had played with my floyd tuning that ran the galley and hello to grant Floyd!

SOUNDS

I play on a 15W Marshall amp and a pedal Berhinger "ultra distortion." The sound was good my little above my pedal with my config! I had a lot of power but not a good tuning!

OVERALL OPINION

The guitar itself beacoup me more when I played the permière both music store but what disappointed me so completely that floyd not want the road and as I have not enough money to invest in a good floyd, I decided to sell it and bought myself a "Lag RS200" (French brand), I am very happy with this guitar because I realized that I used floyd not much and thanks to its micro AlNiCo provides a warm and suited to my game (ska, metal). Personally I do not have that choice again to redeem myself this because of a squier Floyd! and the note depends primarily on the detail!
