The finish is a glossy gorgeous black, and both body, and neck look and feel like the real thing.
E. L. Jimenez
The bridge on the E string was too low and causing some buzzing against the fret initially, but a quick adjustment and no problem.
davidajensen
That because I have very small hands, so I found full size electric & acoustic guitars are very challenging to learn.

We bought this for our 8 year old daughter over a year ago. It is well made, with a rosewood fretboard, and a hardtail bridge. The instrument was the perfect size for her. It has a good strong tone and consistent notes from low to high strings. The saddle is solid and the strings stay in tune well. I did a lot of research into this and after a year of playing it, am still convinced that this is the best instrument for a child, or anyone with smaller hands, to learn on.

I have had my red Mini for about 6 years now. And I still am in awe over how fantastic it is for a small-scale Fender. In fact, I get a richer tone out of it than I do with my standard size Ibanez, which is just collecting dust. I don't think the Squier Mini is just for kids or students at all. I am 38 and have been playing guitar for 22 years. It is ideal for anyone with small hands, or someone who just finds the neck and action of large guitars too hard or uncomfortable to manage. I would suggest you compare this to a standard guitar in person. But for the price, this guitar can't be beat.

Please be kind with my playing skills ;-) The video and audio was recorded with an old Canon Ixus 30, it' sole purpose is just to give you all an idea of the sound to expect from this instrument.

My daughter wanted an electric guitar for Christmas. Her main criteria: PINK!! and nothing else...

So to sum up the wish list:
* E-guitar for 6 year old
* PINK!!!
* light weight
* easy to play
* reasonable quality
* and did I mention it has to be PINK!!! ;-)

After some googling and viewing reviews it all came down to just one model available fulfilling the above criteria.

FENDER SQUIER Strat MINI pink.

To important specs that are not available on the Squier/Fender page:
* the width on the 20. fret is about 56 mm
* the weight is 2.16 kg

So not only the scale but also the fretboard in the overall geometry is shrunk compared to a regular size, which is an important difference to some of the competitor models. This makes it particularly suitable as a child guitar.

Color Name: Black
OK, lets get this right, it is a $99 guitar from Fender / Squire. One person spoke of wishing it's strings were a few inches longer. If you want that, and a normal strat 25.5 inch scale, buy a Strat. This is for smaller hands, or a smaller person, or a youngster, or someone like I who had broken his left hand. MIne came set up very well, but I lowered the action, adjusted intonation, which, though some reviewers disagree, was a total breeze. I changed the strings to 10's which naturally on a short scale guitar, helped the tone. If you can handle 11's, they would probably be even better. If you are just starting, stick with the 9's on there. String spacing is a little close for me, but not unhandelable. Just remember is is scaled down in all measurements, not just scale length. I have found it such a good guitar that I invested in new pickups that have this thing singing. Everyone has their own taste. There are reasons to get this guitar and there are reasons to upgrade it if you want. All in all, for $99 you would be hard pressed to find anything better. Every Strat I have owned has needed fret leveling. This may need some, but for $99, who cares. It is when you buy a $1500 guitar and then find the frets need some work that you get angry. This also is so much easier to play then an acoustic guitar for kids just starting out. Not saying one is better, but if I had this as a kid, I would have played much more. It is just a fun instrument and can sound incredibly good.

Wonderful starter guitar. I recently sat down with one, played for most of twelve hours, and felt no pain at all. The action is extremely low, but there's no fret buzzing. If I ever want one to travel with, I'd buy this mini without hesitation.

This hot pink 3/4 scale low end fender is a great buy. I purchased for my 3 year old and uts still a little big for her. Better suited for 5+ yrs. Sounds really good going through my1968 fender twin.

ORIGINAL POSTING:
My first Mini, purchased over a decade ago, was a bad investment. The four neck bolts continually came loose, no amount of tweaking could get the intonation right (Note: adults should probably play the Mini-Strat "tuned- up"...I play mine at F - Bb - Eb - G# - C - F...or, if they have large fingers, they should probably use a capo with standard tuning and heavier strings) so the string tension is similar to their full-sized guitars), the pick-up pole pieces didn't align with the strings, and the finish was uneven. It cost $99 and I figured I got less than what I paid for. It was clearly a toy and I sold it for $25 without regret.

Three or four years ago I extensively played a "Hello Kitty" Mini owned by a friend. It cost her $149 and, after I tweaked the intonation and the string height a bit, it was a playable instrument. I figured she pretty much got what she paid for. A decent little 3/4-sized traveler.

Recently, after reading that Fender had upped the build quality of their oriental Squier guitars, I again purchased a Mini. I couldn't be more pleased. Right out of the box, everything about the instrument was spot-on. The construction was rock solid, the neck was straight, the strings were correctly positioned, the intonation was exact, and the finish was flawless. It was, in two words, masterfully made. I figure I got at least $249 worth of guitar for $99. How cool is that?

The sound of the current Mini is "classic Fender single-coil"...shimmering with bell-like overtones. The pickups are functional, if a bit thin sounding compared to the Seymour Duncans I have on my full-size Strat. The six-in-line enclosed tuners hold the light gauge strings without slipping. The neck is perfectly finished and fast.
