Overview

Squier's Vintage Modified '72 Telecaster Thinline evokes the popular second incarnation of that era's stylishly enlightened Tele model. The original late-'60s version, with its two single-coil pickups, was updated in 1972 with two great-big, great-sounding Wide Range humbucking pickups for an even more distinctive sound and personality, and that's exactly what Squier gives you here, along with a gorgeous semi-hollow ash body and white pearloid pickguard, smooth-playing maple neck and fingerboard, six-saddle string-through-body bridge and much more.

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified 72 Telecaster Thinline Maple Neck Electric Guitar:

This is a truly amazing guitar! you can play blues, rock, metal, jazz and much more. I was worried that this wouldn't have the classic tele twang that I love since it had hubuckers but I was wrong. when i'm running both pickups I get a perfect bluesy twang, and did I mention that this thing Is drop dead gorgeous?

Comments about Squier Vintage Modified 72 Telecaster Thinline Maple Neck Electric Guitar:

I play on a church worship team 2-3 times per month and will use a tele with an OCD and Tube Screamer pedal on most songs. I own a 2013 American Deluxe Tele, however this Squier 72 Thinline is my new favorite. I did change the bridge and tuners on the Squier. I installed a Gotoh bridge with modern block steel saddles. I also swapped the stock vintage style tuners for Gotoh Magnum Lock Traditional locking tuners with staggered posts. This guitar just has an amazing tone and feel. I have read on other reviews where people have a difficult time putting down the guitar and I can attest to this feeling. It's truly a joy to play. I never get tired of playing this instrument.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified 72 Telecaster Thinline Maple Neck Electric Guitar:

      I am the normal guitar player in the church. I was exchanging guitar with guitar center like 10 times... to find out the best guitar with best value. I went through epiphone, fender telecaster plus, squier affinity, PRS standard and fender mexico stratocaster, but this guitar is just amazing. With this price, it's impossible to make this quality of guitar. I can surely say this guitar's value is compatible to the fender classic player, which is designed by Fender custom design master. I hope my review can help you guys decide on buying this great guitar!
      - it works really well with pedals and the grip for the neck feels good.

        Nice finish and tone. You must be good at setup and string height for playability, otherwise very nice since I won't play my 1958 Stratocaster anymore for fear of damage!

            Comments about Squier Vintage Modified 72 Telecaster Thinline Maple Neck Electric Guitar:

            I am a novice guitar player and I have been taking weekly lessons for about six months (since June 2016). Being a novice player with no real basis for comparison, I was always fond of Fender's 72 Thinline tele. A high school classmate/school band mate had the Fender 72' Thinline in the late 90's and I fell in love with the aesthetics then. Fast forward to 2016... Before signing up for lessons, I purchased a used Epi Les Paul from my local GC (April 2016). A month later, I was in back in GC looking around where they had both the Fender 72' Thinline AND the Squier VM 72 Thinline on the wall. I played around with both instruments and opted for the Squier since it was literally half the price and felt good enough for me. I now have five guitars (the same Epi Les Paul Custom, an Ibanez AG75, the Squier VM 72 Thinline Tele, a PRS Singlecut SE, and a Taylor 24ce). The tele is my "90% of the time guitar" for practicing and strumming around.

              Comments about Squier Vintage Modified 72 Telecaster Thinline Maple Neck Electric Guitar:

              I really like this guitar. I particularly wanted a 72 Tele with wide range humbuckers but couldn't afford the full Fender price. I read in several places that the Vintage Modified series from Squire were a great buy so I took a chance. This guitar is light-years beyond my Squire Bullet Strat. The fit and finish are excellent, it plays very well, and is absolutely beautiful. It did require a minimal setup (intonation on two strings, truss rod adjustment, and pickup height) and the output jack was very loose, but nothing drastic. The only thing I changed was the strings, going from NPS to full nickle to darken the tone a little, and I plan to install a treble bleed circuit on the next string change. If you are on the fence about this one, get it before they are gone.
