      Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

      I remember the Squire of old, and I was reluctant to purchase one until I began reading online reviews. What a delight to find that this instrument lives up to all of the glowing reviews I read here and elsewhere online. Right out of the box, this guitar was ready to play! The set-up was spot on. The neck is perfect. The frets were finished well and are smooth as butter. The body's finish is flawless and this sucker is LIGHT. I personally really like the feel of the fretboard finish, which has a glossy coating. The tuners keep the guitar in tune, even with a lot of string stretches. My only gripe is that the neck pup is rather uninspiring, but stock Telecaster pups usually are. So, I think I'll replace it with a DiMarzio Twang King. I'm OK with the bridge pup for now as it's plenty sassy. I am also going to install a 4-way switch. This guitar is an absolute no brainer and a STEAL at this price. I hate to say it, but the Chinese (who have been making stringed instruments for 100's of years) are making guitars that are going to give American made guitars a run for the money. This guitar truly is as well made, plays as well, and sounds as good as any Tele you're likely to find hangin' on the wall at the brick and mortar stores. If you take one for a spin I think you'll agree.

          I bought this guitar with the intention of modding it and making it better. I was stoked when i got it because it played good and sounded good, but after putting in some new pickups and tweaking a few other things its an amazing guitar. It rivals my american standard now. Classic Vibe is great for people looking for a guitar to mod

            Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

            I have an American standard deluxe tele, and I put the squire side by side for look and feel comparisons. They both feel the same, they both play great. I've been wanting a thin line tele for a long time and the reviews on this one swayed me. So far I'm very pleased and would recommend it to anyone.

              Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

              I usually only buy high-end guitars; I own two Eric Clapton Stratocasters, which I believe are the best guitars made. However, I got bored one day and ordered one of these after playing my twin brother's and reading all of the reviews, and I fell in love with it. It is light, easy to play, and sounds great amplified OR acoustic, which is nice considering I have a new baby in the house. Can't say enough about this thing. Probably the best tele I've ever played, American, Mexican, or otherwise. Buy one now--you've seen the reviews, and I must say they weren't lying!

                I am an experienced novice - lol. I am a hobbyiest like a lot of other "sitting on the sofa players" which means lessons when I was young, tons of books and dvd's and lots of practice, but I have never played out. This is a great guitar at a great price. Light and resonant. Perfect for the at home guitar enthusiast that does not feel the amount of time they spend playing justifies the purchase of an expensive top shelf instrument but want the buzz of playing a tele and a good tele at that. This baby fits the bill. Highly recommended.

                  Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

                  As I have gradually learned to use my fingers more and pick less, this guitar is perfect for that practice. And it's light, so it's a nice change from my Epi LP Pro Fx with Floyd rose.

                  For the price, this Squire is gold.

                  And I will upgrade the Bridge and tuning pegs.

                  Was thinking of getting a Stetsbar for it, but that's almost as much as the guitar.

                  Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

                  After reading great things about this guitar I picked one up in a local gtr shop thinking "this can't be that good". It was not just good but great. Fantastic neck, stayed in tune, great tone plugged into a Fender Deluxe Reverb that I used. My jaw hit the floor to be honest. Right out of the box I was able to rehearse with this (no setup yet). Compared to my MIM Tele it blew it away...and that had a Glendale Bridge and Lollar pickups installed in it. The bridge could maybe be upgraded to something better, but it's getting the job done. The pickups I actually really liked the sound of and I'm torn if I should bother replacing them. If you want an absolute steal this is the guitar. Sweet chime, sustain and punch...easy to play and stays in tune better than some American models I've owned!!! Get over the logo and enjoy!

                  Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

                  I run a shop in Hawaii and have played/sold about 5 of these guitars. They are consistently awesome. I sold one to one of Bruno Mars' guitar players and bought one for myself as well. I first became aware of them through Incubus' guitarist, Mike. He used one on every song on the "If Not Now, When?" record and took it on the road as his main touring axe for that whole tour cycle. If you want to hear it in action (albiet with different pups and a Fender logo on the headstock) just google Incubus HQ or any Incubus video from 2011. The stock pups are Alnico 5's and have a beautiful vintage Fender tone. I won't replace them. The neck pup is actualy useable on these guitars and I'm able to get a wonderful Hendrixy-blues tone quite easily. The only mods I have done was to sheild the pickup cavities with copper tape and add strap lock buttons. Otherwise, I'm leaving it totally stock. The necks are AMAZING too. Scroll up and press add to cart now. You will love it. Guaranteed! :) One day playing it and you'll actually be proud to show off that you rock a Squier. I have 20+ personal guitars and access to about 75 more and this is in my top 3 easily.

                    Well put together, nicely appointed so significant flaws as a G2 used. Replacing the bridge (but really don't need to) and the tuners which are ok, but tend to go a little out of tune. It may be the strings, which are a little light but for the price it's hard to beat the quality and sound.
