Classic vibe with modern refinements.

The Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster '50s is an electric guitar with a look to die for and plenty of '50s 'blackguard' Tele vibe. The Vintage Blonde or Butterscotch Blonde over pine body totally resonates and you'll be hard-pressed to tell whether or not you are holding a premium ash body guitar. Of course pine is not a foreign wood to guitar making or to Fender history for that matter. Early single and dual pickup Esquire guitars were made with pine bodies.

Featuring a 21-fret vintage tint gloss maple neck with the modern playability of a 9-1/2" radius and medium jumbo frets, and outfitted with a custom set of Alnico 5 single-coil pickups on the Butterscotch Blonde model and Alnico III on the Vintage Blonde, this Squier Tele has tone that can really hang with the big boys. You get clear note separation even in distorted modes and dynamic response with a strong midrange and high end bite for leads.

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.

  • Hard to find another guitar with so many positive reviews

    As reviewed by Roger Hausmann on 9/22/2010

    After reading all the positive reviews of the Squier Vintage Vibe Tele, I had to buy one. Never mind that I already own two American-made Teles, plus have built three of my own from parts. This lightweight plain-looking guitar is scary: Workmanship IMHO better than Mexican-made, with only the neck joint showing a tiny gap between body and neck, great pickups and heavenly chime and twang. Otherwise, the fit and finish plus the hardware are excellent. The pine body seems to make a huge difference in the sound, as it vibrates better than other woods and the neck is gorgeous. Unpacking the new guitar at the GC store, I could not find any flaw whatsoever, except a slightly high setup for the strings. The pick guard looks a little cheap, but that's really nitpicking an otherwise stunning player. Even though I have replacement pick guards riin my shop, I'll wait to replace that in the future, when I have nothing else to do. After playing this Tele for hours every night during the past week, I can safely say that owning this guitar -as it comes out of the box- is a no-brainer. This is a milestone in Tele history.

  • Great Guitar

    As reviewed by Big Daddy on 3/29/2010

    Buy this guitar. I have several Tele's that I play regularly and this one gets more time than any. I went in GC to buy an American Std and actually liked this one better. No kidding. I bought 51' No caster Pick ups assuming I would need to upgrade, but took them back because the pickups on this guitar really pop! I added locking tuners but honestly really didn't even need them. THis is one heck of a good guitar.

  • Awesome Axe

    As reviewed by Stymie on 6/17/2010

    I just bought this guitar and WOW! The playability of this thing is unreal. The setup right out of the box is fantastic. I play alot of barre chords on this guitar and it's real easy. It has classic looks and a classic sound. Get one before Fender realizes the gem they have and raise the price!
