I was looking for a tele type guitar, I compared this to an American vintage and a Tex mex tele and I fell in love with this guitar,the looks are simple and understated mine is the Walnut finish, this guitar sounds great put the pickup switch in the middle position and you have a nice blend between the warm single coil in the neck and the biting humbucker in the bridge, great for blues rock and country. I love this guitar.
This guitar looks great, and has a great bluesy sound with the single coil, but can really rock with the humbucker. My only complaint is the dropoff in volume from the humbucker to the single, but you can still get a decent clean sound from the middle position. Plays very easily.
People like to rag on Squier, but let me tell you, the Squier Tele is a pretty darn good deal. You could do a lot worse for a budget guitar. I?m not going to tell you it sounds like it?s 800.00 and up cousins made by Fender, but it?s not that much worse, let me tell you. Most probably couldn?t even tell you the difference. Cant afford of an American Tele (or a Mexican), than go buy this. The biggest difference I could tell was the fret dressings weretn as smooth as the American I had. But nothing you cant live or have someone fix for you.
I bought this guitar mainly because I wanted a Tele with a humbucker. This one was already equipped with one. I put a Duncan Distortion in. I play in a 'metal' band, where the Tele isn't that popular of a guitar. I get such an awesome tone out of this thing!! I now own 4 Teles, and this is still one of my favorites.
The guitar is nice but could not get the action right no matter what I did to it the strings were still too high off the neck. I traded it in on a standard tele. That being said, it is still a pretty nice guitar for the price. A great beginners guitar and not bad if you are more budget oriented. Just spoiled I guess
I originally bought mine as a knockaround guitar to use as backup for gigs and for practices. I'm generally a Les Paul guy so I own various higher end Les Paul knockoffs. I picked this up just to get a cheap backup but when I played it in the store, I was pretty amazed by how good it not only for a budget guitar but for a Tele. I'm used to the single coil sound of Teles so I was thrown off by the humbucker. But that simple alteration brings the Tele into a whole new world. It's got a thick sweetness to it but not too thick and for a Tele that's just fine. Now I use this as my primary guitar with my Les Paul taking a back seat for now. I highly recommend this for anyone that likes Teles or Les Pauls.
