New Guitar Day – Squier Cyclone

My new Squier Cyclone arrived yesterday. I played the crap out of it last night, and have many observations I will share. Unfortunately, it will have to way for a while– it is the 4th of July, and we have company in town.

In the mean time, here are some photos I took:


The first thing you may notice is that I replaced the knobs. The knobs that came on the guitar were Jazz Bass style, and were really cheap. I have some really nice Eagle knobs in my stash that I really like on this guitar.

The other thing you may notice that the neck pocket has a little issue. The two paint chip photos show what is really going on. It looks like the guitar was originally painted surf green, and then over-painted with a shade of white– maybe primer– and then painted over with black. Hah! Under a strong white light, you can see the green paint come through the black.

I’ll post a full review in the next couple of days. Thanks for reading!
