Is Squier good for beginners?

Is Squire a good guitar brand?
They’re very solid guitars, and are good playing for the price. I certainly recommend them, as they are not only inexpensive and play well, but are also such a quality that they can be upgraded for a price much smaller than buying another guitar. So anyways, what I’m trying to say is, yes, buy a Squier.
Are Squier necks thinner than fender?
For the Fender Standard line, I have found that finish is thinner and with fewer imperfections than Squier, especially in key areas such as the neck pocket and neck. From my personal experience, I have found that the MIM models tend to weigh less than the Squier models.
What’s the difference between Squier and Fender MIM?
Squier has also further defied convention by diversifying finish choices and now offering custom colors like burgundy mist, seafoam green, and Lake Placid blue. The Fender MIM line—also known as the Standard line (which includes some recent Asian production)—has been gaining players’ respect for decades.
What’s the difference between standard and MIM fenders?
The Fender MIM line—also known as the Standard line (which includes some recent Asian production)—has been gaining players’ respect for decades. Fender’s recently introduced Modern Player line and some of the Vintage Modified line also fall into the same price bracket as the Standard line.
What’s the difference between a Squier and a P90?
Bar magnet single-coils are more similar in construction to P90s than Fender single-coils and lack the clarity of traditional Fender single-coils. Many of the humbuckers used in Squier instruments are ceramic-magnet-based, with more emphasis on output than tonal clarity.
What kind of wood is a Fender Squier made of?
I have personally found that many of the Squiers not made of basswood are very heavy when compared to similar MIM models of the same wood. For Fender Standard models, traditional Fender tonewoods have generally been the focus, with most models being primarily made of alder or ash.
