Comments about Squier Classic Vibe 60th Anniversary Stratocaster Electric Guitar:
I've had this CV Anniversary Strat for a few weeks now. They seem to be somewhat hard to find. Bought used from MF, but this guitar came like new, except for a dodgy pickup selector switch. Look, this is an import strat with a rather uncommon Aztec Gold finish.
Fit and finish is great except for the selector switch. I'm fixing rather than sending back because this guitar has one of the best fret jobs and out of the box setups that I've ever owned, including American Deluxes and Clapton Strats. Pickups are good but lack some depth compared to my Texas Specials or CS69s. They are ringing and plucky. They saved money on the trem block and the body has a very slight downsized feel to it. Modern C shaped neck may be fine for some. Feels a bit shallow to me, but is OK.
Overall, this guitar feels a bit on the light side compared my current Roadhouse and Classic Player Strats. It's cool, and would be a great introductory Strat for the money, or a guitar for someone wanting a smaller feeling Strat. If you can spend more, then I'd suggest the Roadhouse Strat. It feels much more substantial, has the TS pickups and preamp circuit, and just seems more gig-worthy. The Squire is staying home.
