I've been playing on and off since 1968.

The Telecaster Custom I purchased has a wide thin neck. Very comfortable to play, and was intonated very well the entire length of the neck. No buzz, no dead spots. I've never really felt a guitar neck with this exact neck shape. I did not feel the same mojo and ease of use with the Classic Vibe 50's Tele and Strat. Possibly an excellent setup would cure that problem.

Because of the low price of the guitar, the individual parts of the guitar, specifically the bridge and nut and pickups, seem less than perfect.

The pickups are a touch flat and lifeless. However, amplified through my Marshall Class 5 and a Marshall Guv'Nor, the bridge pickup is close enough to early Zeppelin to be satisfying. Buying a Fuzz box would make it even better. The neck pickup portrayed excellent blues tone.

In conclusion: If you take each individual guitar on it's own merit, the Classic Vibe series are excellent grab and go guitars, I would think the best choice for clubbing musician's. Just what Leo Fender envisioned.

    Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    After many years of playing I recently discovered the benefits of the Telecaster sound. Recent recordings definitely benefited from the tones only a Tele can provide. This guitar has the neck that seemed to be made for my hands, very comfortable. The finish is great and I recommend it, I especially like the binding on the custom. The only minor complaint is the pickups; Definitely has the classic Telecaster sound but slightly dull in comparison to the other two Teles I own though this one plays and feels better. I really like the GFS Fatbody set of pickups I installed in my SX vintage series guitar and I may opt for another set to install in this one. The odd thing is that I have another Fender Squire standard Telecaster and the pickups it came with are superb. It could be the factory used something different due to inventory issues? I ordered a new set of Squire standard units once and they were nothing like what I had, so who knows?

      Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

      I chanced on this guitar in a little music shop in the Appalachians. The owner had sold it once, then taken it back in trade six months later when the customer came back for something more expensive. I got it in mint condition for half the retail so it was worth the gamble. After playing it for several months now, I can't beleive my luck. This guitar is easily worth it's retail price and then some. Solid but not super heavy, the finish is excellent, the neck is wide, fret board smooth and action is incredible. Going through a Peavey modeler, I can get any sound imaginable but it is particularly good for chrunchy classic and smooth blues. My buddy has an original Strat from the 80's and the last two times we jammed, I couldn't get his hands off of this Tele. Aside from others wanting to play it, I'm super happy about the whole deal.

        Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

        I got this guitar used. The guy I got it from must have given up music because he sold it for next to nothing I thought something must be wrong with it but it is just about perfect. It is hard to believe an American Tele is better than this. I have a MIM Strat and a Yamaha SD120 Tele copy, along with many other guitars of various makes. I can't put this one down though. My only complaint, and it is a small one, is the action is so low it is not much good for slide. No big thing.

        Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

        This is my second Squier CV Tele Custom. The first one had a problem with not enough relief in the neck so it went back. The truss rod was loose from the factory and backed out all of the way, with no more adjustment possible to add relief. The new one is fine, with no issues. Both guitars were well executed, with excellent fit and finish work. The first one actually had prettier wood and seemed to have a better finish and overall appearance, but they are both nicely done. The volume and tone knobs are responsive, without any sloppy feeling. The pickups are surprisingly good, especially the neck pickup. I won't be changing them out. The frets are polished and smooth and level, with no buzzing with a proper set-up. I only wish that the neck was beefier, but some may prefer the stock neck. The mint green pickguard and the white binding really make this guitar look classy. I usually don't like a three-tone sunburst, but this Custom is stunning. Try as I may, I just can't find fault with this Squier. I did swap out the steel saddles for brass and switch to heavier strings. It is a blast to play!

            The neck PU went out the first two weeks. Called MF and they said they would replace the guitar. I told the Rep wanted to keep this guitar because I loved the finish and the setup and planning to put customs PU's in it anyway. She gave me discount on an ES-339 case I wanted. This is why I'm a MF customer. I love this guitar and play it as much as my B-bender. Can't go wrong with this one!

                Everything about this guitar is top-notch I really like the combination of vintage and modern elements !The finish is fantastic , playability also , everything I like about vintage guitars with the exception of 9 1'2 inch radius , medium jumbo frets , truss rod adjustment at the headstock . These three items are a huge improvement over vintage elements ! Never again will I think Squires are just for kids or beginners . I have been playing for 53 years.

                wanted a tele with rosewood board, This fit the bill nicely. Easy playing after setup. Pickups are vintage style, not very powerful. Neck feel is great, and playability is good. Tough to beat these low cost squires
                Will be swapping pups to get a little more beef, but is playable like it is, once it is set up. Has the look and feel of the classic tele it mimics. Worth the admission price.
