I bought the CV-60 Custom about a MTH ago and am very impressed with it. The craftsmanship on it is very good. I suppose with Labor being what it is in China, it should be. But usually you could run your fingers over the binding/body line and feel a slight hump. This CV Custom is perfectly smooth in this area and you rarely see that on anything but Custom Shop electrics. The woods are nice in that they stick close to the 62 Custom combination of Alder body with a Rosewood board. Vintage Fender Telecaster parts are all a direct drop-in fit for this Squier which is nice for a change. First time I've seen this with squier. The Vintage style TMs are very good quality and perfectly stay in tune. I believe they are as good as the original Klusons. The Tonerider pick-ups "Alinco Vs" are a vast improvement over the ceramic MIM Standards. And they "are" Toneriders check the serial numbers on them. The vintage tele Twang is here in spades as is "all" Tele Tones. The vintage style bridge with 3-Steel Threaded barrels is also true to the original 62 Custom design. I had a Vintage Fender with 3-brass barrels hanging around so I used that just to warm the Tone a bit. As I said the Vintage Fender Tele hardware is a direct replacement. But theres certainly nothing wrong with the stock bridge. The steel is just slightly brighter. Neck pocket is perfect and snug. The fretwork is excellent with a comforatable modern C with a 9.5 radius and M-J frets. Nice fret work with good low action. I did a complete set-up on the guitar myself. And I believe this will need to be done for anyone buying a CV. I also own a CV-50 Tele and on both the Truss Rods were slack and needed to be adjusted. So its probly similiar on most of these. But with a set-up this Telecaster really plays as well as other Teles costing 7-8 times as much. Serious bang for the buck with this Tele. Yea it would be nice if the finish was Nitro. But hey this Poly finish is excellently applied. You can look all you want and you won't find a flaw. The Pots are Alpha and good quality as is the switch. The out-put jack is very snuggly assembled which always use to be an issue with Squier. I'll tell you, these Teles are going to be getting a LOT of action by a LOT of players. You just can't beat them for the bucks. And with Vintage style Fender parts being a direct drop-in replacement? Thats a HUGH factor for ease of upgradeing. BTW the neck is routed for a Humbucker as is the CV-50 Tele. Some may not like this but again I think its a super idea. Makes it a breeze to drop in a Humbucker or a Mini Humbucker. All those who complain about the neck pups on teles? Well upgrade your heart out. I dropped a Filtertron in mine. KILLER Telecaster. Don't miss this one. I find it hard to believe the CVs are going to be around long at this quality and price. The body seams match very very well and you actually have to STUDY the body to see the seams. Thats impressive, I've seen Fender Deluxe USAs I refused to buy because of this issue. I play Pro and have been for years. I own USA made Fenders and other USA electrics and Custom Shop guitars. IF I am playing one of these CV-60 Custom Squiers it really should tell you something. I pick "all" my guitars out in person and rarely buy on-line. I honestly cannot tell you how consistant these teles are, But fron the reviews and the Editors Pick Award from Guitar Player? I'd say they are pretty darn consistant. BTW my Tele weights a TOTAL of 7lbs. and my CV-50 is under 7lbs. Impressive weigh eh?

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:

    This is my favorite electric guitar regardless of price. I played everything in the store including big buck guitars and if you put a blindfold on me I would pick this one every time. Its underwound pickups are excellent for country, blues, classic rock, and jazz. If you are looking for a metal shred machine this is NOT it. If you are looking for a classic truly vintage vibe guitar this is IT. I mod everything I buy because I like what I like and the only thing I have done to this guitar is put in a four way switch and change the strings. It really is that good!

        Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

        Looks, sounds and plays ok with some bridge height and intonation adjustments. 10 strings made it feel and sound better to me. Alder body is awesome. Body looks great and sounds great I wouldn't go with anything else. Neck is fairly good and straight. There's no much adjustments I could do without messing it up so I am accepting it for what it is. Pine is pretty stiff and should stay that way. Neck varnish color is nice. I'm not particulary happy with the tuning especially with open chords but that is this way to a certain degree on electric guitars. I will try a compensated nut or something if it's not to hard to change. Pickups are pretty good but I will need something that knocks it out of the park. Tuner mechanism for loading strings is nice but not sure how good or stylish they are. Metal components are not the highest quality and could use selective upgrades. I've purchased some brass components to add in the bridge. Some people say it's hard to intonate this type of bridge but I disagree. So I will upgrade the nut, pickups, brass bridge compensators, plastic knob to chrome which shouldn't be that expensive and make a big difference. Two of Keith Urban's guitars look just like this but I don't dig the cream pickguard and will change it to black, no corny perl or toirtoise shell. Then one of these days I'll go all out and get a choice American Fender but until then this is pretty cool. Love the simplicity and clarity that a Telecaster gives you. So far it's blended into my colleciton and I think it will stay that way.

          So i started playing .. ( my music style is blues) .. I bought this as a practice guitar .. I assumed the price less than 400 qualifies it for a solid practice axe.
          I ordered it from MF to deliver to my hotel ( I was on course ). I took it to GC just to check it out. Looks great .. intonation great .. start playing it thru a tube amp .. each pickup has it's own sound ... check out the tone thru the 3 way switch ... wow!!! ... this is far better than a practice guitar .. I am thrilled ... the guy at the GC tried to convince me to trade it for a Humbucker tele that was nice .. but honestly the sound was better on this baby ... I sat there playing trying to find something wrong with the neck the fretboard .. nothing .. I ended up looking at it shaking my head . thinking what a beautiful guitar ... how am i going to convince my wife of our new addition.
          Not a big deal she saw how my face lit up and that my sentiments were another amazing guitar for my collection.

              First of all, I love Musicians Friend! They ship very fast, & pack well. Got this guitar at a reduced price because it was "used." But there was no sign of any prior use. The guitar was in immaculate condition. It is far better in quality than the price suggests. The finish is gorgeous, sunburst + binding are amazingly sharp. I love the "aged" finish on the neck, and the fretwork is perfect. No sharp edges like on every MIM Fender I've tried. The action is a tad high, but that's my preference anyway. Neck pickup has great bluesy tone, better than expected. Bridge pickup is a bit thin sounding, but easily replaced. I've been playing for 26 years, owned all kinds of guitars (including US made tele plus, PRS, Carvin, & Taylor electrics). This Classic Vibe Custom Tele is no slouch. Great value for the price.

                This is my 3rd Classic Vibe Tele and as with my VB & BSB the fit & finish are top notch; no sharp fret ends, only minor set-up tweaking needed out of the box. Play 'em "as is" or use as a modding platform cuz they're spec'd the same as the vintage US tele's.

                Got this strictly as a backup to my Gretsch guitars,hate taking $5000 worth of gear to club gigs . Neck p.u. was dead on arrival. Unfortunately, the guitar had some scuffs on it since I didn't order a case, so had to take in for warranty repair instead of returning to M.F. That was EIGHT WEEKS AGO!!!!Still waiting on Fender/Squier to ship a new one. Bridge p.u. is bright to the point of useless. Action was way high, lowered till it buzzed and still too high. Finish and neck are nice ,though. Selling it as soon as it's fixed, if that ever happens. Guess it's hard to teach an 8 yr old how to wind pickups.

                After all of the great reviews, I was expecting something decent. This guitar had scratches on the back right out of the box. The action was clearly marked on the QM tag, but I am not sure what QM Department would let a guitar go out with those settings clearly marked. This CV Telecaster feels light, and is lighter weight than an older Squier Standard I have laying around. it has a strangely "hollow" sound compared to most solid body guitars I have heard. This may be partially caused and/ or aggravated by the very light-weight bridge and control plate (much thinner than the previously mentioned Squier Standard). I will probably throw this one back.
