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.

    Comments about Squier Classic Vibe 60th Anniversary Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Have to say I bought this guitar on a whim after seeing it in a catalog. The gold color on this thing is such a departure from standard colors on strats, and I have to say I love it...but you should see it in person before hand because it may not be for everyone. The guitar plays and sounds fantastic and is solidly built. If you had a blindfold on you'd be hard pressed to tell its a Squier and not a Fender Mexi and even Amer strat. The only drawback I have is the pick guard is cheesy, I ended up stratching it simply by removing the Classic Vibe sticker which is a shame because the 8 hole parchment pick guard is a perfect match for this guitar. Other than that it's stellar for the money.

      Comments about Squier Classic Vibe 60th Anniversary Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is a superior value for anyone wanting a Strat. It came set up beautifully and in perfect condition. It feels and plays fantastic with solid electronics and a maple fretboard that has a great finish on it. I've owned over 25 guitars over the years and tend to get bored with them and sell them off to buy something different. This Strat is a keeper. I think this instrument compares favorably with other Strat models at any price point. The fact that it's an anniversary model makes it kind of cool as well.

      Comments about Squier Classic Vibe 60th Anniversary Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      This is a very striking guitar. Solidly built. It was setup just like I like it right out of the box (needed no tweaking). I have to admit that I was hesitant purchasing a Squier, but I kept seeing this model and I couldn't resist any longer. I'm happy to add this guitar to my collection.

        Comments about Squier Classic Vibe 60th Anniversary Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        I got this as an impulse buy. The look got me. Aztec gold with gold hardware and '50s appointments.....what's not to like visually?

        I own several Fender Custom Shop guitars. And, except for the weight, this Squire compares very, very well to them. I was not expecting to like this guitar. I thought: No way. I will toy with it a few days and get my money back because it can't be good. Well, I was wrong with that thought. I would take this guitar to any gig.

        I may replace the tremolo block with a steel unit. The sound is slightly thinner than it should be and the thin pot metal block is most likely the reason. That is easy enough to do. And I will replace the pots with CTS versions as the turning resistance is much less than the stock ALPHA pots. Though the ALPHA pots work well and will last a long time if you don't mind the extra effort to adjust them. But when playing a gig, I need to be able to just move the controls very effortlessly with my pinkie many times in mid-song. No can do with the stock pots.

        The best thing is the neck. The larger radius and larger frets make for playing ease. The setup was great right out of the box. This was quite a surprise.

        I have played many Squire guitars and never thought much of them. Obviously the Classic Vibe series is in a different class than the rest of them. I plan to add another of the Strat models and a couple of the Tele models to my collection. I can see these guitars actually increasing in value years from now much like the very early Japanese Fender stuff -- people scoffed at those back then and now they command quite a price when you can find one.

        Good job Fender!

          Comments about Squier Classic Vibe 60th Anniversary Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          I bought a MIM standard back in 1996. I loved that guitar. It was comfortable to play and I had broken it in the way I wanted it. I sold it a couple of years ago to buy a different guitar. I bought this guitar because I was missing a guitar with a strat tone. The guitar I got from MF was set up exactly the way I would have and plays like butter. The pickups sound way better than the 96 Fender standard strat I had. I'm VERY pleased with my purchase.

            I got this at a discount because it was open box but listed as mint condition. It certainly was / is. Basically new strings and set up to my liking (lower action) has this playing as well as any I have ever owned. The neck is a bit slimmer than I am used to, but it is not a bad thing... just different. Sounds great and super build quality, fit and finish. Very impressive.

              Comments about Squier Classic Vibe 60th Anniversary Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

              Bought this after doing a lot of research on this particular model. The look and feel of this guitar is of no comparison in this price range. Almost like a $1500 custom shop guitar, with the finish and the neck is a beautiful vintage tint with some flame pattern on the back of the neck. My only gripe would be that I wish the neck profile was thicker (a soft V would be nice) instead of the standard issue modern C profile Fender puts on all Squiers.

              Sound is great for the money as well. It's been a while since I've had a single coil guitar, so the pickup noise takes some getting used to. Might eventually replace them with a noiseless set.

              Fretwork is decent and the hardware/electronics are surprisingly okay.
