I've played for 30 years and currently travel with one of the best Texas C&W Bands in the state: Chris Johnson & Cheap Whiskey. I have a Strat that I have been using along with a Vintage Gibson ES-330 This little Tele Custom is UNREAL for the price. Have no ideal WHY you would want to pay twice or three times the price for one of the others... this is the real deal.

If you're a starter, this is a great guitar for you. I've been playing guitar for about 3 or 4 years now and this is not a bad guitar. The price is very good. If you get it, I recomend asking for one from the back. Don't buy the test version on the wall. Make sure that the action is low. I ran into trouble because I was so exited about getting my first guitar that I forgot to do that. So get the action fixed. Also, the guitar is fairly heavy, so if you don't like to carry about 30or so pounds around, this is not the guitar for you. Good luck picking out guitars.

Very different for cheap

By Leonidas

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Squier Tele Custom Electric Guitar:

The Squier Telecaster Custom is a fantastic guitar for the price. The humbucker setup gives it a very different tone than a standard tele. The greatest part of this axe is the neck. It is so smooth and fast. The pickups leave a little to be desired, but are right on for the price range. The tuners aren't the best, but will suffice. With a pickup swap, this guitar can really scream. I wouldn't say it gets the same kind of tones as a Les Paul, but maybe more along the lines of a "twangier" SG. It really is a unique sounding guitar. I would highly recommend this guitar for anyone, but especially a beginner, because you really get your money's worth.

Great Guitar

By Rich W

from Montague , NJ

Comments about Squier Tele Custom Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar after not playing for about 6 years and wanted a nice inexpensive guitar to jam with on occasion . After playing it and seeing the price I just had to have it . Playability it just fantastic . I even compared it to the original 72 Deluxe and kinda liked the sound of the Squier better ( opinion) . After having it over 6 monthes and getting to know the guitar you'll see some of the flaws and corner cuttings. Some crooked screws ( no biggie ) and such . Simply replaceable thing that won't kill the guitar . After a while the 2 hums though are great ( neck humbucker is great when both clear and distorted but the bridge is lacking, need more power IMO) but will still leave you wanting more . I will be replacing them soon with some GFS Retrotron Liverpools . Even thought the negatives I still cannot knock this guitar . A great value for the money . Truly a cool guitar and would recommend it any day .

amazing, get it

Comments about Squier Tele Custom Electric Guitar:

This is my first guitar and I went searching around everywhere. I bought a regular telecaster first but returned it because I wanted one of these. They can be hard to find but their worth it. They sound great clean, with or without tone. Distortion is great too, I go from blues to metal often and it works for everything. It's a very versital guitar. It looks great too, very good for upgrading!

TELEtastic

By Yahni Cash

from abilene, tx

Comments about Squier Tele Custom Electric Guitar:

Pretty much bought this guitar without playing it first. I dont know what the original 72 fender Tele sounds like so i cant compare the two. But what i can tell you is, this guitar has a wonderful sound. The humbuckers are fantastic. Both pickups have a unique sound together or seperately. The neck is smooth and plays very well for that fast action people desire, also all the other features are great i.e. knob placement and switch placement. Won't bump the volume switch while playing. The independent controls of the pickups is slick, allows for more variations of sound. Simply just easy to play. Soft to the touch and you are making sound. Doesn't feel heavy and doesn't feel cheap. Looks beatiful, feels excellent rite out of the box. Seems to hold in tune and you can go after just about any sound you desire. I think it was priced about rite, but free would be better.

Sweet Little Axe

By BeerBluesnBBQ

from Portland, TX

Comments about Squier Tele Custom Electric Guitar:

Got a Squire Tele Custom for my birthday this year and man what a great gift. I had played one in the store and just fell in love with it. When my wife got it for me for my birthday I was very happy with her choice. Nice action and great sustain for such an inexpensive axe, but you cant go wrong with a Fender right? I play it thru a Vox AD50VT amp and believe me it keeps up with the amp nicely. I really appreciate that it stays in tune so well, no matter how hard I play. If you want a great guitar for the money definitely buy this one. You'll have a load of fun playing this guitar.

5 STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comments about Squier Tele Custom Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar about 1/2 a year ago and all i have to say is GET THIS!!! if you are an aspiring blues, country, rock, or even METAL musician, this is THE guitar for you!! I personally play metal, and the only concern was the pickups, i easily swapped them out for EMG 81/85's but either way, THIS GUITAR IS AMAZING!!!!!!

Totally not what I expected

By Ben Somers

from Windsor, Virginia

Comments about Squier Tele Custom Electric Guitar:

This guitar got my attention when I was looking for a modifying project. But when I plugged it in, my mouth fell open. It hardly needs any modifying. The sound it produces through its humbucking pickups is warm, punchy, and has a certain bite to it. This was not completely what I excpected from a guitar from this pricerange. The Agathis body gives the right sustain and is fairly light; it makes the guitar well balaced and makes it very comfortable to play. There are also some downsides to this guitar, but those are pretty easy to fix. In my opinion, the knobs were placed the wrong way around and they confused me a little; I got that fixed by a pro. The strings probably need replacement as well, but thats all about taste. I am in possession of guitars of much higher value, but they do not match the comfort and sound of this little Squier. A good buy for both beginner and advanced. I am using this guitar as my main when gigging with my band.
