this guitar is awesome!it plays super duper well and the tuners are not bad for a squier. it's quite light and has a nice ringing tone when unplugged. the pickups are punchy and sound great clean or distorted. getting telecaster sounds is easy to do as well making it great for blues, rock, punk etc. the tremelo works unlike other types. overall it's built well and sounds great. just make sure you get the allen wrenches and tremelo arm with it.

I love the wayit feels, I love the vibrato bridge. I love it because it was Kurt Cobains favorite guitar. However, the pickups arent great. I feel like im not getting as much distortion as I need even when I tried the regular distortion on my Orange Crush 20R amp. It also needs to be tuned up. the bridge needs to be adjusted. Perhaps that may resolve the solution, or perhaps it's the pick ups and the bridge.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

    I have noticed that the Squire Brand has greatly improved over the years. The workmanship on these import produced guitar is as good as many of the U.S.A. Fenders I have looked at recently.
    This guitar is another example of a well put together instrument with little which needs to be done to make it comfortable and playable.
    All I did was to polish the frets which were a little under finished (they were leveled well), adjust the truss rod, individual string heights and set the bridge height overall. The intonation was almost spot on with .010s. I also increased the spring tension in the tremolo (very easy adjustment). Probably the only weakness is in the design of the tremolo bar connection. You must tighten the bar with a set screw which means that it can't be moved easily until you un-tighten it to remove it. The tuners work well. How long..time will tell.
    The nut grooves could use a little smoothing according to your preferred string gauge. The pickups sound fine and the switching circuit give one several sounds to choose from.
    All in all a great price for a good and light guitar. I'm very satisfied!

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

      Let me start by saying I bought this guitar as a fun project, I honestly didn't expect much from the stock components, as I planned to upgrade most of them anyway. Right out of the box I was impressed, this is a solid guitar. Before playing a note I did pull off the tremolo to set it up for maximum string tension, and set the action/intonation. I also put on a new set of 10 gauge strings. I have no problems with my guitar holding tune (as well as my Gibson). I did have a slight buzz out of the box but flipping the bridge piece, and slightly raising my action fixed that. Now it plays great! It has a bit fatter neck than I imagined, but I have grown to like the feel. The pickups have a nice tone, and hold their own with any of my more expensive guitars. Though I do plan to swap them out for a set of Lindy Fralins in the near future, it's by no means necessary. I did notice pots/switches, and input jack are pretty cheap(as was expected). Overall a great guitar, and a purchase I'm pleased with!

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

      Okay, I love this guitar. It just plays so easily and has the switches to get multi-sounds that I'm surprised it's so inexpensive. The vibrato bar is even useful without much de-tuning. A great buy!

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

      I have played an acoustic guitar for as long as I've been playing and I would try out my friends electrics every once and awhile, but when it came to getting my own I wasn't sure what to get I wanted something that I could play fast and loud with a clear sound but it needed to be on the cheaper side. For a cheap guitar this is great! I bought it about 6 months ago and fell in love. When I bought it I changed strings right away and there was a bit of a buzz but once I adjusted it, it worked great. I've played small shows with it and garage parties and it still hasn't failed me. I paired it with a Mustang 1 v2 amp by Fender and its awesome.

      Stock... not so good

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

      I got mine a few weeks ago. Out of the box it looked great. Finish was good, no weird gaps by the neck like I've read before. On the fretboard you could tell they filled in wood near a few frets. Not a big deal, just cosmetic. I tuned it up because no guitar ships in tune except Breedlove for some reason lol. I played it for about an hour and had to re tune several times until the strings stretched. Hooked up the tremolo, used it once and all strings were out of tune. Re tuned the guitar, used the tremolo, everything went out of tune. Did this 6 times with no luck of holding tune. The string buzzed at the saddles as well. For $300 you usually start getting decent hardware, but not with this instrument. I've replaced (because of functionality): the tuners, the vibrato and bridge with actual fender parts, all the potentiometers and even the pickguard. I also replaced the pickups but that was just personal preference. I'm still in the middle of the process but I can say without a doubt it will end up awesome. Both my squier bass guitars did with a few after market parts. To sum it up, if anything, replace the vibrato and bridge. Costed me about $100 on Amazon. The other stuff you could live with. I went hog wild on mods is all. It's a well built instrumemt, just really really bad vibrato and bridge.

      Cool little axe

      By Michael

      from Coeburn VA

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

      First let me say I DID return this to GC in exchange for a Jaguar. I'll come back to that. So I have to say I lucked out when my Mustang arrived. The intonation was actually spot on, action was wonderful and best of all, the springs in the tremolo were adjusted to the lowest notch allowing more tension. Yes the strings were kinda lousy feeling but 10 mins with a new set fixed that. The sound of the guitar was very close to my Telecaster minus the bite in the bridge. Its a 52ri with Dimarzio True Velvet's btw. I didnt experience tuning issues using the trem although I didn't get super crazy with it. Bridge buzzing was present but I raised some saddles and that was a temporary fix. If I kept the guitar I would've upgraded to a Mastery Bridge or something. Overall I liked the guitar but I didn't feel blown away. What I didn't like was the height of the tremolo arm. I would've cut it down with a dremel tool to make it more playable for me. Plus (and this may be cheesy) I didn't think about Fiesta Red being more of a reddish orange. I was expecting more of a Dakota Red. Anyways, I returned it for a white Jag which arrived yesterday and I'm much more at home playing that and the Jazzmasters

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

      Past my expectations of what I thought this guitar was actually going to be. It's a really flexible guitar, and plays pretty much whatever you want it to. I've had it for about a month now and the only thing that has really screwed with me is the bridge, so I bought an actual fender bridge for it. Problem solved, no more buzzing, no more screws coming loose on the bridge. The guitar is very light, great for screwing around on stage. Put seymour duncan hot rails on for the bridge pickup, and took out the default bridge pickup and put it in the neck position, and now it's coil tapping, not sure why. BUT THAT'S A GOOD THING. Can't put it down, play it everyday.

      Indonesian not as good as Chinese

      By Deb Thomas

      from Abq. NM

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

      I am not very happy with the Vintage Modified Mustang. The neck fit is awful, there is a big gap on one side. The Classic Vibes are much better made in China than the VM range made in Indonesia. I would have preferred to pay a bit more to have the Chinese quality. I did not get an allen key for the trem arm or the tailpiece adjustment. there is also no manual included, so good luck if you need help figuring the bridge out. The thing just rattles and buzzes and does not stay in tune. i am trying to find out where to place the tailpiece to best alleviate this. If you want a Mustang, go for the more expensive ones in my opinion. Squier makes some great guitars, the classic vibe range is streets ahead of these vintage modified ones. there was also a ding in the side of the neck of mine. The tuners are rubbish also.
