I run a shop in Hawaii and have played/sold about 5 of these guitars. They are consistently awesome. I sold one to one of Bruno Mars' guitar players and bought one for myself as well. I first became aware of them through Incubus' guitarist, Mike. He used one on every song on the "If Not Now, When?" record and took it on the road as his main touring axe for that whole tour cycle. If you want to hear it in action (albiet with different pups and a Fender logo on the headstock) just google Incubus HQ or any Incubus video from 2011. The stock pups are Alnico 5's and have a beautiful vintage Fender tone. I won't replace them. The neck pup is actualy useable on these guitars and I'm able to get a wonderful Hendrixy-blues tone quite easily. The only mods I have done was to sheild the pickup cavities with copper tape and add strap lock buttons. Otherwise, I'm leaving it totally stock. The necks are AMAZING too. Scroll up and press add to cart now. You will love it. Guaranteed! :) One day playing it and you'll actually be proud to show off that you rock a Squier. I have 20+ personal guitars and access to about 75 more and this is in my top 3 easily.

I've been playing an Epiphone Dot Studio for almost 4 years now so I wanted to branch out into the tele world. In comparison to my Dot studio, this tele doesn't stand a chance. The bridge pickup sounds like it's full of life, but the neck pickup is muffled from the cover and is too quiet and wimpy. I don't like to use the slide on the tele because the strings buzz too much and doesn't give off a rich sound like my Dot Studio. When I ordered the guitar, I had seen pictures of dark brown ones online so that's what I wanted. I was disappointed to see a very light brown finish on mine when I opened the box. My Dot Studio has a rosewood fretboard so I'm used to gliding all over the place. My fingers actually stick to the gloss finish when I slide up and down on the tele. In the end, the thinline telecaster and the Dot Studio could not be anymore different and if I had to pick between the two to keep, the tele would be kicked to the curb.

    Enjoy the versatile sound from the pickups. The neck profile fits the chording hand very well. It's a fast neck for me. Getting lots of positive comments on the fit and finish; fine looking guitar.

        Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

        This is a nice guitar! I waited too long to buy one, and then the big price increase hit. MF had one listed as "open box, blemished" due to fine scratches all over. The price was less than a new one at the old price, so I took a chance. I was expecting an abused guitar, but what I got was an instrument in better condition than what you would find new hanging up in a music store. The frets are smooth and level, the electronics feel solid and work with no issues, and the finish is flawless. It sounds great through my Fender Deluxe Reverb. My only concern is the neck pickup, which seems to lack clarity and punch, but this is sometimes the case with Tele neck pickups. It sounds best in the middle position to my ears. I have a set of Fender Custom Shop reissue pickups that I will eventually swap out, but I'm in no hurry as the stock pickups are not too bad. All in all, this is a good guitar as it is, and a great platform for mods.

              Currently I own an American Stratocaster that I got new in 89, a Gibson Les Paul Traditional that I love...a Schecter C1, an Ibanez AM73 and a Mexican Telecaster that I got new around 87...I humbly think that I know what a good guitar is...Thursday my Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline arrived and to say that I was surprised is an understatement...I read a lot of reviews...did my research...but this guitar is much better than I was expecting...It sounds soo good...plays like a dream and I honestly can not find a cosmetic or structural flaw in this guitar anywhere...I had to do a little setup on it after I replaced the 9's with 10 to 46's ...very pleased....beautiful wood too...This guitar easily equals the higher priced ones that I have...It's a keeper!!

              Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

              Just recently received this guitar and I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice the finish was. The guitar was set up low without fret buzz so playability is outstanding.
              Pickups sound great so no need to change those out. I've owned several guitars and without a doubt this is probably the best value so far. My nice pricey Music Man might get less play time now!

                  I am quite a newbie to electric guitar.
                  This is my 4th electric guitar and 2nd from musician's friend.
                  It came with a Squier box in a Musician's friend international delivery box, looks solid and intact when deliverd.
                  The setting is perfect. The tone is great, twangy.
                  And surprisingly, when I rollback the tone all the way, it gives a super warm and smooth sound.

                    Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

                    I remember the Squire of old, and I was reluctant to purchase one until I began reading online reviews. What a delight to find that this instrument lives up to all of the glowing reviews I read here and elsewhere online. Right out of the box, this guitar was ready to play! The set-up was spot on. The neck is perfect. The frets were finished well and are smooth as butter. The body's finish is flawless and this sucker is LIGHT. I personally really like the feel of the fretboard finish, which has a glossy coating. The tuners keep the guitar in tune, even with a lot of string stretches. My only gripe is that the neck pup is rather uninspiring, but stock Telecaster pups usually are. So, I think I'll replace it with a DiMarzio Twang King. I'm OK with the bridge pup for now as it's plenty sassy. I am also going to install a 4-way switch. This guitar is an absolute no brainer and a STEAL at this price. I hate to say it, but the Chinese (who have been making stringed instruments for 100's of years) are making guitars that are going to give American made guitars a run for the money. This guitar truly is as well made, plays as well, and sounds as good as any Tele you're likely to find hangin' on the wall at the brick and mortar stores. If you take one for a spin I think you'll agree.
