      Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s Electric Guitar (519339)
Availability:  


Renowned sound and feel with modern refinements.

The Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s is a rough-and-tumble electric guitar ready for almost any musical situation. With an alder body; rosewood fingerboard; 21-fret, vintage-tint gloss maple neck, this Strat definitely has that '60s vibe but with the modern playability of a 9-1/2" neck radius and medium-jumbo frets. This Squier Strat's tone is thick with a custom set of Alnico V single-coil pickups—a quick attack with a bit more midrange oomph and a bridge pickup that packs a knockout punch! Custom stagger 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 with distinctive feature set combinations—all adding up to one classic looking instrument. Great sound, vintage looks, unbeatable value—Classic Vibe!

  • Classic Vibe Stratocaster 60's is Better than you think!

    As reviewed by Mike G. on 6/3/2009

    This is the best Stratocaster I have ever played. I have owned a USA made, MiM and the old Squier Stratocasters and this is one HELL of a Squier Sratocaster. I really like playing it the neck is smooth and the fret edges are not sharp it is a dream to play on this neck. The pickups are nice and hot Alnico V magnets and the tone of the strat really shines through. I am really amazed at how great this guitar sounds and the quality. If you want a Strat and want to save some coin for other guitar stuff this one is it! This is not a toy this is a true Fender in disguise!

    As reviewed by Don Brozz on 6/10/2010

    I went to Guitar Center to purchase a Mexican Strat, or possibly, a pre-owned American model. Upon walking in the door I saw a Classic Vibe 60 sitting on a stand and was immediately taken by the amazing quality of the fit and finish. So I picked it up, played a few (unplugged) notes and was blown away by the guitars feel and playability. Not wanting to limit my options, I played a few Mexis, and even a used USA model, but, I came back to the CV. Why you ask? It blew the Mexi series away. The look, feel, even the sound was above and beyond any Mexi I tried. Yes the USA Strat was a bit better as far as tone, and a "refined" feel, but comparing this to a USA model isnt apples to apples. Even though this little gem held its own against its bigger badder cousin. Bottom line, this guitar is the best "bang for the buck" Strat you will ever find. Pictures do not do this guitar justice, it is absolutely beautiful. If you're on the fence about purchasing, go for it. You wont be sorry.
