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.

Squier Classic Vibe Thinline Telecaster

By Brian Johnson

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

Wow. I regard myself as a bit of guitar purist and have been reluctant to go for Fender "licensed" product in the past. But I picked up a Classic Vibe Thinline based on a longing for a 60's style thinline and a limited budget. First things first, nothing about the CV Thinline is budget. The fit and finish is as nice as my American Standard Fender Telecaster, or any guitar I own really. It was easy to set up to my liking and has lovely frets, fair sized 9.5 radius neck, and is quite light and comfortable to play at just over 7 pounds. I'm totally blown away. The pickups are bright and clear and do not need upgrading. I can't recommend the CV line guitars be it for a first guitar or, as in my case, the twelfth or so. It's a regular player and looks hot up on the stage. A keeper indeed.

More than just a Squier, much more!

By Rick Roberts

from Titusville, Fl.

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

If you are looking to expand your guitar arsenal. You may just want to pay a visit to this model. Get that 69-70 Fender Thinline look with great pick-ups. It is a carbon copy of the classic Fender. Classic tele sound and feel. But without the weight. It is light as a feather. You can wear it on the shoulders for hours. The Mahongany finish with pearl pickguard is beautiful Fretboard is balanced and tuners stay in tune. Pots are great. Keep the pickups. Alnico V pickups. I own it and play it. People can not believe it is a Squier. Sometimes I have to take an additional look to remind myselfI am not dreaming. Great Fender looks and sound at a Squier price. I'm in for that. You will be too. Rock on. Check it out. On the back of the Headstock it says," Crafted in China." The Far East division has upped its game. That make a great guitar affordable for a lot of people.

It's a tele it should be cheap

By Miller

from Milwaukee, Wi

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

I own a CV50 also and both Guitars have blown me away on quality, playability and tone. If your a label snob get over it, your missing out. I will be buying the CVC also. Every now and again Fender just gets something right with the Squier line and the Classic Vibe series might be the best examples.

SIMPLY AMAZING!!

By robby

from oregon city, OR

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

this guitar is amazing!!! it sounds more amazing than it looks!! stock setup is good but better strings are highly recommended, i use super slinky's with all my guitars. tuners hold very well and are easy to use. i use this guitar for praise team at church and for everything unless i have to play metal style, then i use my strat, but otherwise this guitar works well for everything. i get compliments left and right on how beautiful the guitar looks and sounds. i am definately proud to own and perform with a squier!!

Nice Value and Looks Great!

By al jarvis

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

First of all, I am a drummer. OK... I don't really get the snobbery between this and that guitar. All I know is if the guitar looks cool. Purely superficial. And this looks cool, funky and different. I went to GC and played a bunch of cool looking guitars, plugged them in... EPIphone SG- PelhamBlue, Tele American Standard Red Crimson and Telecaster Special Jade, Gibson Sunburst Firebird, Les Paul Junior ( Black )P-90's, Fender American Strat Dark SunBurst, This one. I played them all and then left the store had lunch. Came back and picked them up again and the Vibe $400 vibe felt and played and nice as the $1000 one's. But I wanted to play the Vibe Tele, it is light and funky the neck is nice. The thing chose me. I cranked it up and the pick ups where not as hot as the LP, but they did cut thru like a madman. The bridge pick up is trebly but not too shrilly. The tele-standard probably had more jangly-ness but not that much. This is light, so it is easy to play standing up for a long time. I felt like it was a good fit and I was willing to spent the extra coin but it didn't seem justified. For a $400 I can get a pretty nice guitar. Maybe the vibe it isn't as collectable, but I don't collect guitars. I want to play the guitar! I intend to record with this instrument, play messed up jams and beats, record them and put some telecaster over-dubbs on them. With money I didn't spend, I can now get a bass or another guitar with different sounding pick ups.

Gorgeous and so easy to play

By Ryan Sansom

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

My first guitar was a thinline, the cheaper modified Squier. I loved it, but eventually moved on to nicer guitars. I was recently in the guitar shop to purchase a hollow body. My mind was set on an ES335 or 137. However, I noticed this hangin there and had to pick it up. WOW! Plays so beautiful and it's incredibly light. Almost feels like a toy, but plays like a Fender. It's stunning to look at. The pictures do it no justice. The neck does not look like the cheap Squier maple necks, it looks like a Fender, with high gloss finish. I have had many folks be shocked this is a Squier. I love it, and currently play it more often than all my other guitars... This is an extremely versatile guitar that can play anything and play them all well (except for some Metal which I don't play). It's well worth the extra $$ to grab this over the Squier Modified Thinline. This thing nails the country sound with the bridge pickup, and the Petty/REM jangle pop sound as well. And with the neck pickup, sounds great for Hendrix, SRV, etc. It sounds great for Cream, BTO, Pearl Jam as well. It's not quite a 335/137 for Stranglehold or Bad to the Bone, but it definitely has that gritty, raunchy, mean howl to it.

Sweet Tele, MUST see in person

By Ryan Sansom

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

When I first saw this Tele online, I figured it had the same cheap maple neck as the affinity model squiers. It doesn't. The finish both on the body and neck of this guitar are impeccable. It is the lightest electric guitar I have ever played, yet still has great tone and sustain. The fret work is terrific for an Asian product. I gig with this instrument and turn heads with the sound and finish. Plus, it doesn't weigh on my shoulders... You can't find a better guitar at this price!

Awesome Guitar!

By Tony

from Romeo, MI

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!

      Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

      My friend recommended the Squire Vintage Vibe or Modern Vibe as a way for me to get into a Telecaster. I must admit that I was a little concerned about the "Squire" line, since I have owned a Squire Strat in the past, and it was far from quality. I have never seen one of these in the store, and I think its because they sell so quickly. I love the look of the Mahogany, and the fact that its a 1/2 semi hollow body with an "F" hole, which is totally unique for a Telecaster. When the guitar arrived, I was really impressed with the finish and the attention to detail. I got my tools together in anticipation of setting this guitar up, but what I found was that all I had to do was turn the saddle height adjustment 1 full turn to lower the action, and the rest of the guitar is pretty much setup and ready to play. The neck is adjusted very well, and has a nice finish. The frets are done very well for a guitar in this price range, and mine does not need any polishing (I hate getting a new guitar where you can feel the frets catch on the edges as you slide your hand up or down the neck).
      My only concern about the guitar is that the pickup selector switch does have a cheap feel to it, and the pots on the volume and tone feel cheap, but other than that, this guitar is very impressive.

        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.
