It may not be an American Reissue Model, but the sound and the feel will really shock you. I have been Tele shopping for a while now. I have played plenty of others in the store, new, used, Mexi, American... and this Tele was not only the best value, but it stood up against guitars that cost 3x as much money. 1. Looks As far as looks go, I think this guitar is gorgeous. The double bound body looks incredible, and the glossed headstock are really a great combo. I can see very minute flaws in spots, but it is far better than an average Mexi Tele, and miles past anything that I have seen Squier manufacture. The grain in the wood is really gorgeous. Remember that this is the Alder body Squier. The 50's Classic Vibe Tele is pine, and I am guessing that the other Squiers are either pine or plywood. This Tele weighs more than any Squier tele that you will find, which adds to the sustain and gives it a lively tone. This guitar weighs more than the Mexi teles that I compared it to as well. 2. Parts. I can tell that the nut is kind of plasticy, not a real bone nut, the bridge plate also feels a little wimpy to me. The tuners are an upgraded vintage tuner that feels the same as a vintage Mexi tuner that I use on a strat that I own. However, these seem to really stay in tune well. The volume and tone knobs glide really well and offer a fair resistance. This is a plus if you only occasionally mess with the knobs, but if you use a volume knob for swells during songs, it might actually feel a little stiff. The quality of the knobs is an outstanding difference above any other squiers, and far better than any Mexi Tele's that I have played. The 3 way switch, doesn't feel quite as solid as the knobs though. The frets are called Medium-Jumbo, but are a bit thinner than the frets on my Mexi strat at home that boasts med-jumbo frets, but they are smooth, and finished perfectly with no edges or burrs. The saddles and saddle screws are the vintage style with 3 shared saddles rather than 6 individual ones, but they feel light a high quality part. (I usually prefer individual saddles, and if I change anything out on this guitar, I would consider a new bridge and saddles, but it would have to be a high quality replacement.) 3. The Neck It has a beautiful rosewood fingerboard, and a very glossy and thin neck. Be prepared for a thin neck. It is probably the skinniest fender neck that I have ever used. I have gotten used to it and really like it. There is a ton of poly gloss on the neck, but it is applied very smoothly and feels pretty fast. If you prefer a satin neck, you will need to sand this neck down quite a bit. 4. The Pickups and the Sound To start off, I'd have to say that I am blown away by the amount of sustain that this guitar has. Far more sustain than any strat I have ever played, and it is a strong and pleasing sustain, not the type that some strats and cheap les pauls have that sound cheap and thin. It is a fantastic tone. I like Tele's to have a fair amount of spank to them, and these pickups have a great attack to them. The Bridge, of course has a lot of treble and some great spank to it. It seems to be a fairly high output and is spanky and quacky. The neck pickup obviously has a more driving and full tone, but still has a great attack to it. In my experience, Tele's that have a great Spank to the sound, do not sustain very well. But this Tele, really does hold a great sustain. This is the most surprising detail about this guitar. Let me make this clear, this Tele does not sound cheap at all. I would be happy to have an American Tele that sounds this good. This does not sound cheap compared to American Tele's. It just has a great full Tele Sound. If I were a chicken picker, I might opt for something different, but I like the blues and rock and think that this guitar sounds fantastic playing everything from Jimi to modern stuff. I have played this guitar through a Fender Champ 600, a Blues Jr., a Blackheart Handsome Devil and a couple of modeling amps. This guitar made the Champ 600 sound like a blues monster. Just really cool! 5. Overall People will say that this guitar is a great value. Which is certainly correct. I feel like most people won't buy it because it is a Squier and it costs more than other Squiers. I would tell them that this is a great quality guitar, made with great components in China, and if you find the right one, it might blow your mind. if you are looking for a tele with tone, spank and sustain that does not sound cheap. This is a great choice. Don't shy away because it is a Squier, they have upped their game and made a fantastic guitar. If you are looking at Tele's, I would urge to you at least check this one out.

My title says it all. I own a couple of Fender Mexicasters, an American strat, a Squier Affinity Tele Special, and a Squier 50's Classic Vibe. The Affinity is a good guitar, and the CV is a great guitar. I expected the same from this, but what I got was a beautiful guitar with multiple playing issues. With the neck relief adjusted properly and the middle saddle raised as high as possible, the D and G strings still buzzed. The nut was binding the B string, and was cut so poorly that the high (pitch) E string was almost falling off the edge of the fretboard. The rosewood fretboard was totally dried out, and there was something that looked like a booger stuck to the bridge. I do have to say the body was beautiful and the finish on the neck was very nice. Had the guitar been more playable, I would have tried to clean off the booger, but since it wasn't, I sent it back. If this is the same Chinese factory that made my Classic Vibe 50's Strat, then they obviously had a very bad day when they made this Tele.

    Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    I chanced on this guitar in a little music shop in the Appalachians. The owner had sold it once, then taken it back in trade six months later when the customer came back for something more expensive. I got it in mint condition for half the retail so it was worth the gamble. After playing it for several months now, I can't beleive my luck. This guitar is easily worth it's retail price and then some. Solid but not super heavy, the finish is excellent, the neck is wide, fret board smooth and action is incredible. Going through a Peavey modeler, I can get any sound imaginable but it is particularly good for chrunchy classic and smooth blues. My buddy has an original Strat from the 80's and the last two times we jammed, I couldn't get his hands off of this Tele. Aside from others wanting to play it, I'm super happy about the whole deal.

      Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

      I got this guitar used. The guy I got it from must have given up music because he sold it for next to nothing I thought something must be wrong with it but it is just about perfect. It is hard to believe an American Tele is better than this. I have a MIM Strat and a Yamaha SD120 Tele copy, along with many other guitars of various makes. I can't put this one down though. My only complaint, and it is a small one, is the action is so low it is not much good for slide. No big thing.

      Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

      This is my second Squier CV Tele Custom. The first one had a problem with not enough relief in the neck so it went back. The truss rod was loose from the factory and backed out all of the way, with no more adjustment possible to add relief. The new one is fine, with no issues. Both guitars were well executed, with excellent fit and finish work. The first one actually had prettier wood and seemed to have a better finish and overall appearance, but they are both nicely done. The volume and tone knobs are responsive, without any sloppy feeling. The pickups are surprisingly good, especially the neck pickup. I won't be changing them out. The frets are polished and smooth and level, with no buzzing with a proper set-up. I only wish that the neck was beefier, but some may prefer the stock neck. The mint green pickguard and the white binding really make this guitar look classy. I usually don't like a three-tone sunburst, but this Custom is stunning. Try as I may, I just can't find fault with this Squier. I did swap out the steel saddles for brass and switch to heavier strings. It is a blast to play!

            wanted a tele with rosewood board, This fit the bill nicely. Easy playing after setup. Pickups are vintage style, not very powerful. Neck feel is great, and playability is good. Tough to beat these low cost squires
            Will be swapping pups to get a little more beef, but is playable like it is, once it is set up. Has the look and feel of the classic tele it mimics. Worth the admission price.

              This is my favorite electric guitar regardless of price. I played everything in the store including big buck guitars and if you put a blindfold on me I would pick this one every time. Its underwound pickups are excellent for country, blues, classic rock, and jazz. If you are looking for a metal shred machine this is NOT it. If you are looking for a classic truly vintage vibe guitar this is IT. I mod everything I buy because I like what I like and the only thing I have done to this guitar is put in a four way switch and change the strings. It really is that good!
