All fenders are good, however the squier's quality is lower (that is why they cost less than "original" fenders). Its a still a good guitar for that price. But if you are planning to play a genere that requires lots of distorsion (and dont want to spend a lot of money) I would recommend an ibanez, an epiphone or a schecter.

What is a good mid price beginers electric guitar?

A good electric guitar to start with is a fender stratocaster, but they are quite expensive The best substitute I found was a squire stratocaster which is only around £350-500. Another good guitar to start with is a Gibson Les Paul, these are expensive too so you could get a Epiphone Les paul which is cheaper. If you live in the UK check out a Pmt (Professional Music Technology) , they sell all the guitars mentioned. These are just guidelines as they are good beginners guitars but is there are any musicians you like look at which guitar they are using. P.S. If you like a blues type of sound a squire telecaster is a good move too.

What fender guitar should you buy?

There are many different types of fender guitars. One is the Fender Stratocaster. The fender Strat. is what some people call the universal guitar. People call the Strat this because if you look at any type of music (jazz, rock, blues, funk, country) you will find at least one artest that plays a fender strat. I own an American Fender Stratocaster Deluxe and I love it. If you are a rock fan, then go with the Telecaster which was made to play rock music. Fender also makes acoustic guitars but they are not the best quality I think. If you are looking for an acoustic guitar then look at Ibanez. They make a good acoustic guitar. I hope that this helps. If you have any other questions about guitars, I would suggest looking in the fourms of this website. This is the best website for all your guitar needs.

I have a Fender Squier Stratocastor with a serial number M008849 on the headstock and JV69399 on the bolt on neck plate. Any idea of when this was made and roughly what it would be worth?

Don't take this the wrong way, but roughly 70 bucks at the most. Squire is the watered down Fender look a likes that Fender also happens to own. Not very high quality sorry to say. However, a long time ago Fender used to make a guitar I believe was called the Squire but it was the name of the guitar not the sub brand, for lack of a better term. That might be worth quite a few bucks but don't get your hopes up because if it looks anything like new and if it says "Squire by Fender" then you're out of luck.

How do you buy a new guitar?

Well the best thing to do is, go around guitar shops seeing if you like any, and if they are in your price range. secondly, based on your playing style what you would like. E.g Ibanez make metal guitars, Gibson make les pauls for a thick rocky tone, Fender make stratocaster's which are suitable for playing blues etc. All these guitars can play any music you want, but the help above is just what people have made prefences with these guitars, You may find that you love playing classical with an Iba! Well, then obviously you have to purchase a guitar, either from a shop, or online (online is mostly cheaper, however you can't play the exact guitar before you are buying it.) Lastly, I would buy an Epiphone to start with or a Fender Squire, these are cheap, because they are factory made, but a great starter! Hope this helped.

What is better electric guitar Yamaha or squier?

That would depend on your appeal to comfort, aesthetics and sound... and maybe price. There are good Yamaha guitars, such as the Pacifica, which is a nice Fender Strat style. The Squier is the 22 fret strat Fender (I have a 22 fret Ibanez GIO) which is just as good as any guitar in my opinion, but a standard 24 fret is better for the high-pitching lead shredder (though only by one note).
