The 5 different series of Squier electric guitars
This is at least easier to figure out compared to Fender.
Before getting into this, when I say this is easier to figure out compared to Fender, I'm not kidding. The total number of series Fender has for their electrics is ridiculous.
It's 13. Technically 14 if you count the American Acoustasonic models which do have electrified stuff in them. Too many? Yes. And you can't even list them in any lowest-to-highest grade because it depends on the generation type and manufacturing country of origin. You'd literally have to create the pecking order separating by origin first, generation type next, then price point last.
Where Squier is concerned, there are 5 different series. This is the pecking order from lowest to highest grade:
- Classic Vibe
I'll explain why I list Artist as the highest grade first.
While true there were some crappy Squier Artist models in the past, these 3 are all very well built with proper hardware and upgraded electronics. All of them are nonstandard builds and have things in them specific to the Artist they represent, but even so, you're getting something genuinely good with any one of the three.
Now I'll talk about the other series, from lowest to highest grade.
