    Over the course of the few years I've been on TB, I think this has been the biggest thing to drive me nuts.


    A squire was originally a young man who aspired to the rank of knighthood and who, as part of his development to that end, served an existing knight as his attendant or shield carrier. (taken from Wikipedia.)

    I used to get annoyed by it too but I eventually gave up on it. You just have to accept that "Squier" is probably the hardest to spell name ever or something.

    P.S.: "spelt" is perfectly fine in British English, "spelled" is pretty much the American English variant. :p

    The V.C. Squier company originally agreed to provide strings for Leo Fender's new-fangled Precision bass, and was later acquired by Fender - hence the name for the second-line (as they thought) Fenders. S - Q - U - I - E - R.

    If that is enough to drive you nuts then it must be a pretty short trip... ;^)

    Not to be confused with Chris Squire, who thankfully doesn't play a squier and confuse the hell out of everyone.

    G'day Squire! I had a "Fender Squier Vista Musicmaster". The headstock was huge, and no wonder, they had to try and fit the name on it!

    I think of "Roundabout" played on a Squier, and I cringe.

    Eh, if Squire was playing a Squier on Roundabout, it would still sound amazing.

    Ooops... :bag: It just feels strange to put all those three vowels in a row. Are there any other words spelled that way with uie in the middle??? IMO, 'Squire' is the most logical spelling of that word, based on how (I think) it is pronounced. Anyway, English is not my native language so that might be the reason I spelled it wrongly...

    Oh, I found a word with uie: The name "Louie"...

    I'm glad you can vent your frustrations on TB. This is really constructive conversation.
