  • fender by squier

    As reviewed by Thomas Gibbons on 2/4/2013

    This guitar is a phenomenal value. The neck pickup is tremendous as advertised, however, if single coils are your comfort zone, be warned there is a big difference. You may have heard that it sounded similiar, b/w les paul and a single coil, its closer to the les paul. Less hum, but more than gretcsh and less note distinction. That being said, it is every bit as fat as the les paul. The tele bridge pickup is as bright and agressive as they come. Even if you prefer a "strattier" bridge pickup, don't "fret", because these tone and volume knobs work brilliantly. I've heard the horror stories of squier tone and volume pots, but these are very precise. With distortion, the bridge squeals, but won't with use of the pots. The neck doesn't, and like a strat out of phase position, cleans up real well in b/w. About this guitars history, the fender wide-ranging hum-bucker was designed(don't quote me) by Seth Lover for fender. The first one to make this modification was a guitar tech for Keith Richards and fans liked it enough that fender released a version in 72. As for the neck, which is what realy sold me, it is a full "u." Don't expect a "C" Neck. If that's what you've heard, it's not. It's covered in a beautiful gloss which some people don't like b/c it can get sticky if you sweat enough, perhaps playing in a 100 degree closet packed w/,one can only hope, screaming well endowed fans. If this is your opinion, than take it off the back with steel wool, leaving the front gorgeous. Clapton did it to all his maple necks.(see Blind Faith in Hyde park). Frets are large enough, not rely jumbo but perfect in my book. Don't beleive the photo of the 3 color burst, the finish is gorgeous. Also unlike the photo, the grain is not. This brings me to the only cost cut Squier made- wood. It is agasthis, not alder. I think it gives the look more character, as the grains are more speratic and the different planks are easily distinguishable. Trust me, its beautiful in person. As for tone, alder is considered much better, but teles' have traditionally been made from everything from pine to birsch, and those guitars sounded pretty damn good to. One detail that shouldn't be over looked is in the ashtray bridge, where you have holes to place the strings, still having the string through option. This opens up a world of variation when it comes to strings. I put DR Legend flatwounds on, leaving EAD loose and GBE strung through.(This combined with the fwr in the neck has a great Wes Montgomery/ Chuck Berry impression clean). Another great detail is the real vintage tuners, where you poke the string in lattitudinally and wrap the rest around. This may make it harder to change strings, but looks cool and is solid as rock. Headstock logo is very cool which brings me to my final point. Fender has their logo on here three times, even though its made in Indonesia. They didn't have to put the Squier logo on it. My brother recently bought a 700 dollar P-Bass that was made in China. Forget the brand name, Indonesia has made one of the best solid-bodies on the market for any price range!
