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.

Got this as a starting point for a project but i really like it stock. The pickups are probably the biggest surprise, specifically how much the bridge pickup sounds like a tele. This guitar looks and feels great and you can't beat the price. Project might have to wait a bit.
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!!!!!!
I'm a jazz/blues player and I have been looking for a Tele with a humbucker in the neck position. I test drove a couple Tele models (Fender 72 reissue thinline and the solidbody) and then, I randomly tried this Squire model. Admittedly, I was not thinking of buying a Squire guitar, but the sales guy suggested I overlook the name and try it out. I'm happy I followed his advice. I was very surprised at how good this guitar played and sounded. It has good tone - deep and warm with the neck pup; punchy and crunchy with bridge. Its weight and density give it plenty of sustain. The action is low and the maple neck was straight (after a minor truss adjustment). I really prefer all maple necks to maple w/ rosewood fingerboards, but that's just me. The only thing I may do to upgrade the model is replace the tuners - really, everything else is fine. And for the price, it is an amazingly good value.
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.
I ordered one of these guitars online for delivery. I already have a standard telecaster and several other guitars. This is the first time I have ever bought a guitar without playing it beforehand. I was very impressed with this guitar. It arrived well set up: the neck is straight as a die, the frets even, the intonation spot on and the action was even, allowing note bends without any choking off. Metal players might wish to lower the action slightly, but for classic rock and blues it is ideal. It arrived with 9-42 gauge strings on it. All I had to do was tune it. The large radius maple neck makes playing blues and classic rock a pleasure. The pickups have a fat tone, not quite as dark as P90s, very usable for both clean and overdriven tones (I use a Marshall). When playing rock, the sound cleans up nicely with the volume backed off. The bridge pickup is much less microphonic at high volumes than a standard tele, due to the fact the pickup is not mounted directly to the bridge assembly. It definitely feels like a tele to play, and sounds quite similar to an SG; brighter than an LP. Overall, nothing wrong with it and great value for money.
This is the first time I have written a reveiw on any guitar purchase. Let start by saying I own both an American standard strat and tele both 2008 models, wonderful guitars. I was looking for a humbucker equipped fender for recording in my small music room. For 1/4 the price of the american made Fenders this guitar is phenomenal. It arrived in perfect condition. I do think however the packing could be better to protect the guitars from shipping damage. The setup was great, the neck playes as well as my american Fenders and the finish is nearly perfect. I don't normally buy guitars thru mail order however with the retun policy I took a chance and got a great guitar for the money, well worth twice the price in my opinion. If you are looking for a humbucker fender I don't think you will be disappointed with this tele
Great sound, the feel of a fender, and a good price. What more is there to say?
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 .
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.
I've been playing this guitar for the last year or so and it has been wonderful. One would be hard pressed to look for a guitar with such great playability and tone for the money. The neck has a wonderful feel to it and the pickups are quite decent. My only problem, which seems to be somewhat common, is my input jack has become loose and causes some static while playing. The volume knobs are also kind of screwed up but that is only because I took the plastic parts of the knobs to try and fix the input jack and i kind of stripped the teeth on the inside of the knobs. Other than the input jack, the guitar is super reliable and sounds great.
