    Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

    This is a nice guitar! I waited too long to buy one, and then the big price increase hit. MF had one listed as "open box, blemished" due to fine scratches all over. The price was less than a new one at the old price, so I took a chance. I was expecting an abused guitar, but what I got was an instrument in better condition than what you would find new hanging up in a music store. The frets are smooth and level, the electronics feel solid and work with no issues, and the finish is flawless. It sounds great through my Fender Deluxe Reverb. My only concern is the neck pickup, which seems to lack clarity and punch, but this is sometimes the case with Tele neck pickups. It sounds best in the middle position to my ears. I have a set of Fender Custom Shop reissue pickups that I will eventually swap out, but I'm in no hurry as the stock pickups are not too bad. All in all, this is a good guitar as it is, and a great platform for mods.

          Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

          Currently I own an American Stratocaster that I got new in 89, a Gibson Les Paul Traditional that I love...a Schecter C1, an Ibanez AM73 and a Mexican Telecaster that I got new around 87...I humbly think that I know what a good guitar is...Thursday my Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline arrived and to say that I was surprised is an understatement...I read a lot of reviews...did my research...but this guitar is much better than I was expecting...It sounds soo good...plays like a dream and I honestly can not find a cosmetic or structural flaw in this guitar anywhere...I had to do a little setup on it after I replaced the 9's with 10 to 46's ...very pleased....beautiful wood too...This guitar easily equals the higher priced ones that I have...It's a keeper!!

              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

                    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.

                      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!
