From the manufacturer
Small Strat, Big Sound
The Squier Mini was designed with young players in mind featuring a 22.75 inch scale length, as opposed to the standard 25.5 inch scale length of a typical Stratocaster. This shorter scale length results in less tension on the guitar strings, as well as a shorter reach between frets providing the user with a much easier playing experience.
The Squier Mini boasts a traditional three single-coil set up with 5-way switching. This powerful and versatile platform is suited for almost any playing style. Single-coils are known for their bright, dynamic and articulate tone.
Vintage-Inspired Hard Tail Bridge
The Squier Mini replaces the traditionally equipped Floating Tremolo system found on most Stratocasters with a Vintage-Inspired Hard Tail bridge. The Hard Tail bridge provides many unique benefits which are well suited to help players early in their career. From restringing to intonation, a hard tail bridge makes set up and maintenance a breeze. Also the vintage-inspired hard tail bridge also provides greater sustain and sonic transference thanks to greater surface area contact.
Rosewood produces a mellow, warm tone that complements the chime of a single coil and the twang of a 25.5 inch scale length. A traditional tone wood which first appeared on Stratocaster fingerboards in 1959, Rosewood fingerboards contain enough natural oil to be left unfinished which offers the player an organic tactile experience.
Ranging in color and hue, Rosewood typically contains deep rich browns with possible highlights of orange, green, purple, and yellow.
Designed for Comfort
The comfortable 'C'-shaped neck profile of this instrument (the shape of the neck in cross section) is crafted to impart a vintage-style playing feel. The 'C' shape is the most common neck profile among modern Fender guitars, and its oval shape is well suited to players with smaller hands. This makes the Squier Mini's neck remarkably comfortable and ideal for all playing styles.
The Squier Mini also offers a slightly thinner body profile than a traditional Stratocaster. This feature not only makes the instrument lighter, but also allows a shorter reach over the instrument for an easier playing experience.

I bought the Danelectro Honeytone N-10 Guitar Mini Amp, Aqua and Daisy Rock Guitar Strap, Pastel Rainbow and together the three of them make for a pretty girly combo!
What's awesome is that if I ever want to upgrade, I could easily pass this down to my daughter.
The only con is that it didn't come with a cable. I didn't realize it when I ordered so I had to make a stop at my 'local' guitar shop to pick one up.
However, I was quite surprised to find this exact guitar at the shop on display with the other Fenders. To me that reassured me that this is a quality guitar (because this shop didn't sell cheapo guitars - I looked.)
If you're looking for a great quality guitar for beginners this is perfect. Make sure you also get an amp, chord, and a tuner (when the guitar first arrives the strings will be very slack and will need lots of tuning). You should probably also pick up some spare strings just in case. Oh, and a case wouldn't hurt either. You'll need a place to put it when you're not playing.
3/4 size for children or those with small hands
Doesn't come with a chord
The 4 stars have mostly to do with the price. For this little bit of money you couldn't get the three pickups in my regular Strat, much less a guitar to put them on. So you can only expect so much here! Tuning, as mentioned, is a challenge and might be the one caveat for new players. I suggest getting a cheap clamp-on tuner, which will make life much easier. Using my digital tuner, it wasn't too bad and held tune for a bit before needing adjustment again. Again... a good set of tuning machines cost as much or more than this whole guitar... keep your expectations in line with what you're spending and I think you'll be quite happy with this little gem.
Obviously for under $100 you get what you pay for in terms of pickups / electronics and hardware, but it does the job. It's what you would expect from a Fender Squier, only.... smaller. :)
1. You may have to do some adjustments for string height and intonation but that has to be done on even more expensive guitars.
2. For some reason the nut is made higher on the low stings making it "slightly" out of tune on some chords on the first three frets. However, I don't need perfect pitch for a practice guitar.
3. The construction is solid of course.
4. The sound is great with no noise from the pickups at all (amazing).
5. A bargain an twice the price I think but I might not have tried it at the price. Glad it is priced where it is.
6. You don't have to be a kid to use or appreciate this guitar or have a lot of fun with it.
PS: Good tip to lower the string action if necessary. Just put a shim under the back half of neck base (use an Ace of Spades card, it works great)
