Built on the Fender® '69 Telecaster platform, the semi-hollow Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline features a rosewood fingerboard, Duncan Designed„¢ Telecaster pickups, chrome knurled knobs, a parchment pickguard, vintage six-saddle bridge and three-way switching. The distinctive f-hole design and semi-acoustic construction come together for a unique, jangle-pop vibe at an amazing price. This guitar also has a vintage 6-saddle bridge, allowing for more control over intonation. From The Byrds to early R.E.M. to now, America loves jangle pop, and this is the perfect guitar for this, power pop or any style. The shorter 24-3/4" scale length makes note bending easier.

Vintage Modified! Players from beginner to intermediate and beyond have done it for years”whether installing hotter pickups, alternate pickguards, or just plain personalizing their instruments with fancy paint jobs, modified means adding new twists to a familiar design. Squier's Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline guitar features a semi-hollow body with a distinctive f-hole and classic Tele® tone from two Duncan Designed„¢ Telecaster pickups.

Pleasant surprise

By B

from New York

I was looking for a good beginner guitar for my 12 yr. old to practice on. I have the '72 Fender tele thinline, which I love, and so does he, so I knew this Squier would be a good fit in terms of weight and ease of handling for him. He is very pleased with it, but I did not expect the guitar to be as good as it is! Great, clean sound on all pickups -- "rich and buttery" is the best way to describe it. My favorite aspect of the guitar is by far the feel of the fretboard and neck. It is outstanding; soft and smooth without being slick or slippery. Very comfortable to play, with nice low action that is easily adjustable. Very happy with the purchase.

Great tone for the buck

By savage

from Gulf Shores, AL

Been on a guitar hiatus for over 20 years....last gig was a traditional string band playing acoustic 12- and 6-string, banjo, teachest bass. Decided to get back into electric and picked this little beauty up. I've been a Gibson guy all along, but my eyes have been opened to Fender's tonality and fun. You just can't go wrong with this axe. Bought a beautiful Laguna 322 about the same time, but I just can't keep my hands off this little tele! It will do anything you ask of it and make you come back for more. A few set-up quirks, but otherwise,put a set of DR lites on it and it's ready out of the box.

Make sure you know your style!

By PhillyD

from Perkasie, PA

I bought this guitar a year or two ago when i was about 13 before i knew much about sounds and pickups and everything. This is a great guitar, it plays great, stays in tune, and sounds really good for a $300 guitar. However, since it has single coil pickups and an f-hole, it is made for lighter music, like blues or psychedelic but not metal or punk. It is a great guitar and the acoustic qualities make it great just to sit and play and not have to plug in. I will be keeping this guitar for a while because of its great quality and its dependibility, but I will be purchasing a new guitar soon to give me that heavy sound i want. Overall it's a great guitar but not great for heavier styles of music.

No regrets at all.

By akadigital

from Burlington, WI

After getting back into guitar after 20 years and getting rid of an old epiphone strat from the 80's. I picked up a gretsch power jet but always felt like it was too "nice" to play... And really it wasn't giving me the kind of sound I wanted either, plus it was harder for me to play because of the neck size. I saw this and researched it and found my guitar. I originally bought it thinking I was gonna rip it apart and modify/paint it like my old epiphone, since it's so cheap, but after seeing the quality and finish, it feels as "nice" as the gretsch.. but 1200 less. Needless to say I kept the Shoreline Gold.. which is more just a really cool beige. I can't say enough good things about this guitar.. no regrets.

Pretty good guitar

By Jimmu Jazz

from Washington D.C.

I was very happy with this. A beautiful price, a great tone, the seashore gold paint is amazing. Neck pickup has an astounding twang to it, bridge is as buttery as it gets. Bending is well easy, you can go six half steps on the 14th fret if your fingers are strong. Top hat switch tip looks awesome, plus the f-hole is a cool addition. The nobs fall off easily straight out of the package, but this is a quick fix.

Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline

By Mike

from Oklahoma City

Wow, I can�ۡ���t say enough good things about this Squire Thinline. I was in my local Guitar Center the other day just to buy a couple of packs of strings and I saw it sitting there and I picked it up and started playing and that is when I fell in love with it. I thought to myself, �ۡ��̏am I crazy�ۡ�ݕ�_, because I already own an American made Tele and Strat. I must confess the Squire Thinline feels better than my American made tele and it plays just as good too. Oh yeah, the Duncan pickups combined with the semi-hollow body sound �ۡ��̏Buttery Sweet�ۡ�ݕ�_ The craftsmanship is far better than I expected too, maybe the Thinlines are made in a different factory or something. All I know is that this baby feels and plays fantastic, pick one up and try one for yourself and you�ۡ���ll see what I�ۡ���m talking about.


Quality vintage repro that won't break your bank account

By Scott List

from Baltimore/DC

I've always wanted a Tele, I like the tone and rock-a-billy body style. This Vintage Mod Tele definitely will take care of your need for a Fender Telecaster fix if you are on a tighter budget. It is a quality import with a quality sound. The F hole modification adds variety to your sound ranges and tone as well as making it simply look very cool. The Shoreline Gold color is reminiscent of stacks of tweed tube amps from the 60's. The action and thinline body style will make it easier for beginning players as well as allow experienced players to shred with gusto. This guitar has exceeded my expectations.
