Never Thought a Squier Would Blow Me Away

By Eric

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Squier Classic Vintage Left-Handed '50s Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I first found about this guitar from Youtube videos of older men putting these tele's through their paces while clouding praise upon the instrument. I liked enough of what I heard to take the gamble on to make the purchase. This axe is a joy to play. The body (I have the vintage blonde)looks fantastic with the pine wood grain peering through the clear coat. It is a nice weight and does not feel too square on the edges (a trait that turned me away from mim tele's). The 50's style neck has amazing feel to it, although I do have smaller size hands. The lacquered neck was sticky at first, but that goes away after some playing to make it really fast. The electric guts of the rig all work well and are well put together. The pickups are some of the best I have ever heard, granted the output is curtailed a bit, however they are crisp, clear, and capable for any application (from jazz to crunchy blues they have yet to fail me). If I had to give it a black mark, I would say that the tuning pegs are the ONLY cheap thing on it. Now that does not mean that it loses tune, since I've only had to tune it maybe twice in two months or so after near daily play. The issue is that the machines move a little too easy, for instance if you bumped a tuner while picking the guitar up it will need a tune. Lastly if I were to say another bad thing about the Classic Vibe, in my opinion, it makes me regret buying a Gibson LPJ (that needed to spend a little more time in quality control) last year for near double the price.

Comments about Squier Classic Vintage Left-Handed '50s Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I recently ordered this because I missed my Tele. I have owned a 52 reissue American Tele and a MIJ 52 Tele that were the standard butterscotch like this one. My only complaints compared to the other Teles I have owned are (1) the grain through the finish is not necessarily well matched, but is good enough, (2) the lacquer on the neck is quite thick but that's why they make sandpaper (a little 400 grit followed by 1500 grit and it'll be a nice satin finish), and (3) it is heavy -- 9 lbs. I mainly play sitting down nowadays so that's no big deal. The pickups sound great through my Fender Champ The neck pickup is surprisingly good. The bridge pickup isn't like an icepick but that could be a function of my amp as Champs run a little darker. Neck joint is tight. Tuners are fine. Who cares that it says Squier. Very nice guitar.

Comments about Squier Classic Vintage Left-Handed '50s Telecaster Electric Guitar:

Great looking guitar from top to bottom ,Fit and finish are excellent. The neck is totally different from any of my other guitars and is quite an adjustment for me, I keep rolling The high E off the fretboard ...the nit seems narrower too, but can get use to that quick enough. Made with quality parts and hardware everywhere except those darn tuners. I guess they're ( tuners) are period correct , holding to the classic vibe aspect....but they really are horrible in every aspect. I hardly play this guitar mainly because it's so difficult to get and keep it in tune , the tuners spin out at the slightest tap..they also don't lock / stop in one position easily. The finished neck is the only other possible negative IMO. Since I do t okay it often I didn't notice , but I'm assuming any hand sweat will be a nuisance ....there also should be a cover or something for the bridge. It gets so dusty / dirty and can't be cleaned by just wiping it down....I suppose this is true of all telescope though. Being a relative newb I'll just end with , if I got this guitar and this guitar alone......I think I could be happy and get by with all types of music I like.
