Classic vibe with modern refinements.

The Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s is an electric guitar that leaves no doubt as to its true Fender identity. With its cool finishes on an alder body and 21-fret vintage tint gloss maple neck, this beauty definitely has that '50s vibe. But you also get the modern playability of a 9.5" radius neck and medium jumbo frets. The tone is unmistakable as well, with a custom set of AlNiCo 3 single-coil pickups. This Squier guitar's tone is clear and bright with terrific sustain even in crunch mode! Custom-staggered pole pieces provide improved string-to-string balance.

Classic Vibe!
Back in 1982, the very first Squier by Fender guitars and basses came ringing out of Asia. Known for their excellent vintage-quality look, feel, sound and construction, those early Squier instruments and their Fender branded counterparts are now highly sought-after collector's items revered by guitar enthusiasts as models of "getting it right" while aiming at value-conscious players. The Squier Classic Vibe Series reflects that simultaneous commitment to excellence, value and vibe. Mirroring classic Fender designs, the Classic Vibe offering is not intended to be era or vintage correct-but rather imparting the vibe of a classic Fender design. Each has a distinctive feature set combinations- adding up to one classic looking instrument. Great sound, vintage looks, unbeatable value-Classic Vibe!

  • excellent guitar

    As reviewed by Norman F. Carlisle on 2/25/2011

    this is a must have the fret action is awesome and the play ability for the price is excellent. Man if you are looking for a strat and don't want to pay a boat load of money for an American made job give this a try. played great right out of the box and is just as nice as the American Made Strats and believe me I know I've played them all !!!!

  • Best value in the price range

    As reviewed by Joe on 8/19/2011

    This guitar is without a doubt the best value in it's price range. I will also go a step further and say that it's better than a MIM Fender Strat. I have played both of them side by side and the CV 50's Squier blows the (present model) MIM Fender Strat away. I had never been a fan of Strats, I cut my teeth on Deans, Schecters, and B.C.'s, but as I have gotten older, my taste in music has changed. I never once would have even considered a Squier had that sales guy not come over with a CV when I was test driving the MIM fenders. Now I have two...

  • Wow!

    As reviewed by JUSTIN ELAMAN on 4/4/2013

    I purchased this guitar without having the opportunity to play it, and I was not disappointed. I got the Olympic white and this thing is beautiful. I like the glossed maple neck, and the aged plastic parts are a nice touch. The guitar was set up great right out of the box. The guitar has an awesome tone. It has the classic Strat sound, and I have been able to get bell like chimes and gritty distortion out of it. I compared this guitar to my father's American Standard, and the difference isn't as noticeable as one would like to believe given their price points. This is an amazing value.
