Shop Squier Electric Guitars and Basses
If you’re looking for trendy, high quality guitars and basses at a reasonable price, check out Squier Guitars, a subsidiary brand of guitar giant Fender. Squier’s products feature the excellent construction and materials characteristic of Fender at a much lower cost, but the company has also established itself as one of the world’s most popular guitar brands in its own right.
Established in the 1960s as Fender’s string supplier, Squier became the former’s saving grace in the 1980s when it was struggling with poor manufacturing quality and stiff competition from knockoff brands out of Japan. Fender needed to boost its reputation as a quality manufacturer while offering a competitively priced option consistent with those standards. That’s where Squier came in.
More About Squier Origins and Brand
The brand operated under the Fender umbrella, but Squier also had the freedom to create its own instrument lines. It combined the tried-and-true classic Fender designs with unique features and affordable prices that appealed to a wider group of musicians, and has since only grown in popularity.
With Squier guitars and basses, players get exceptional quality and economical pricing on a variety of unique instruments ideal for beginners and experienced guitarists alike. Its versatile selection of design features mean there’s a Squier guitar to meet every musician’s needs. Sloan School of Music is pleased to offer an extensive selection of Squier guitar products.
