I already in love since the first time i saw this guitar. I tried it for a while then i bought it right away from the shop at that time (since in indonesia we can buy guitar directly on the shop rather than waiting for a delivery service like in US or another country). This guitar is sooooo amazing even it only has one pickup. I usually play alternative rock and sometimes pop punk music. Now i already add a neck pickup for this dude (and the 3-way switch too) and it becomes more amazing ! One of the best guitars i've ever owned !

I have played two of these models extensively, one in White and one in Black. They are both low quality guitars, not really entry level either. There is little versatility, weak tone, the low e is too quiet from this single pick up, and the sustain is mediocre at best. The neck on both models were more like Strat necks, than Telecaster, but they were to great. You could feel flaws with the placement of frets and the work on the neck. Stays in tune alright, except for the g on the black model, but that was probably limited to that one. The bodies finish was good. No runs, nothing odd at all. But I guess they had to make it look right there.Overall, not a real great deal. If you do get it, have your fun, but then maybe, new neck, new pick-up, new tuners, what have you. Good project guitar.

Don't judge a guitar by it's brand...

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for over a year now, and it never let me down yet. The pickup is very clear sounding with/or without distortion. And one tone knob is all you need. The action was perfect out of the box and it is very light weight, wich is good for live performs. I've also played live with this guitar and it sounded great. Don't judge a guitar by its brand. Buy this guitar if you are, or not a fan of sum 41, it's worth it.

Bang for your buck.

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

Those who aren't Sum 41 fans can pan the paint job. Those who love Teles might wonder why bother with this, when you can go for other Teles that might offer a wider range of tones. For the basic guitarist, this thing is just lots of fun. As a fan of the band, it adds a bit more of a special quality as you play it. I feel the price point is excellent, and offers room for personal customization on the pickup (if one feels so inclined). Great sound. Great look. Great guitar.
I was on a guitar search for something different than what I already have (PRS SE Custom 24/PRS SE/Washburn WI14). The first thing that drew me in for this guitar was the Sum 41 connection. I thought that a signature model, even if it was a Squier and not a Fender, would be a fun way to go. As a fan of the band, the look of it is great. I love the "Deryck" signature on the headstock. It just feels like a guitar meant to have fun with, as opposed to my PRS guitars that can make me worry about beating up the paint job. In terms of features, the signature edition is the feature. It's well done at an affordable price.
Given the price I paid, I was expecting something cheap. I assumed that the price figure I paid was going to have me use the other money I would have spent, had I bought something bigger end, on a better pickup to get the best sound possible. Simply put, this guitar out-performs my PRS guitars - and I have no idea how it does it. I read so many reviews that were inbetween on this Duncan Design humbucker. Many feel it's pro-punk and is stuck to that sound. While I can hear that argument, I feel it's perfectly tuned -no pedals necessary- for my playing style. I play lots of rock. Stuff like Chevelle, Muse, and Offspring are my heaviest influences. While I feel the guitar lacks the same spark the more it is downtuned, it packs such a punch that I don't mind it that much. I will say that, the way the pickup works, you really might want to stay away from a distortion pedal or any other effects out of the risk of super-distortion. This guitar already has a slight feel of overdrive/distortion within it. Anymore would be a bit much.
For what I paid, I'm laughing my head off of my shoulders when I play this thing. Seriously. What a fun guitar!

Back To The Basics

By Anothername123

from San Antonio

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

You don't have to be a Sum 41 fan to enjoy the simplicity of this fine instrument. Sometimes all you need is one pickup . Future buyers, be sure to change the Duncan Designed pickup. It isn't half bad, but it lacks the bite most guitarists crave. I'm actually planning on a buying the black version of this guitar as well.A good Telecaster Deluxe at this price is hard to come by.

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I bought the black finish of this guitar. may I just say that I am a sum 41 fan,but this guitar is great for all kinds of rock music. I play punk metal and emo on this fine axe with no problem. it is very versatle. the stock pick up that comes in it is actually realy good. i changed mine out with a dimarzio super distortion but thats just my taste. the guitar is realy light way and very easy and comfortable to play on. it gets a great tone and is very loud.it sounds great distorted and sounds awesome clean, no mud at all. even if your not a fan of sum 41, this is an awesome guitar to own.

It's all about the priorities

By Redcell182

from Abilene TX

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

First of all. If you buy this guitar or consider it because you want a cheap sound, go find something else. This may be a Squier Signature guitar, but it is anything but a "cute collectors item". Besides this one, I usually use an Epiphone Dot and have used many different axes for shows. If you want a: Iggy Pop, Ramones, Misfits, Sum 41, Blink 182, Stray Cats, twangy strong driving guitar. THIS IS THE BEAST FOR YOU. I've been shopping for the perfect guitar for pop-punk, ska and early punk for the better part of this year. This guitar delivered everything i was looking for at a great price. Charging punk tone, Classic Fender twang, and looks that could kill. When I got mine I opened the box, and expected the worse (I had read reviews by other owners). I got the total opposite. She came ready to play right outta the box! I tested her out on the most diverse stuff I knew, from U2 to Against Me! and she delivered with no problems. I would not recommend this as a starter guitar though, it's simple design is meant for one thing PUNK. It could throw a beginner off soundwise, because not all guitars sound like this. I had to hunt really hard to get the sound I love at a price that was reasonable.

just another squier

By e.aganda

from Philippines

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

Action was high from the box. A 15min adjustment on the truss and bridge made it a lot better. From the box, there is a dent and a patch of scratches at the back of the neck. Maple neck gets dirty very fast.Relative to a Gibson LP Std, Deryck Tele is not clear enough on clean, and sounds a little weird on some high gain amps.Just add a little more money and get a Yamaha AES or an Ibanez instead. If you want a Squier to modify, get something other than the Deryck model. Deryck model not recommended.

Good Guitar For The Price!!!

By MikeyMD247

from North Carolina

See all my reviews

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I walked into a music store one day wanting to get a telecaster. I played several and came across this one. It sounded amazing throught the Mesa tube amp that I was playing through, so I purchased it. When I took it home and put a strap on it, it felt really top heavy. After playing live a few times with my church, I have decided to sell this thing. It would be a good guitar if it wasn't sooo top heavy. It hurts my back after 15 minutes of playing. My other guitar which is Gibson SG is much lighter than this. Don't get me wrong, it plays amazing and sounds good clean and distorted, it even stays in tune a lot better than most guitars do. but I've got to get rid of it because it's just not comfortable playing live shows with.

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I use this guitar to write and practice on primarily. I upgraded the pickup to a Seymour Duncan JB bridge (sh-4), stripped the paint off the body, and removed the x from the pickguard and the signature from the headstock. Such a sweet looking sounding playing instrument. No qualms whatsoever, riffs spill out of the thing. Might consider adding a coil tap/split pot soon. Not sure why though.

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

can't go wrong with the simple, powerful design. lightweight but has the tele/les paul chunk, and the slimmed-down version of the duncan JB in the bridge - this thing is a tone machine. the right woods, and killer sustain - plug in punk.

Pretty Good Starter Guitar

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I recently tried out this guitar in the store and I have to say it is pretty good for both the money and the entry-level player. It has that traditional Tele feel (which Im not used to but its ok). The thing is that it is not actually an exact replica of deryck's guitar, which has 2 humbuckers and 4 knobs. Anyways, the sound comes out really clear and thick, like a tradtional humbucker. If you're a fan of Sum 41 then this is the guitar for you.

Just not too great

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I have played two of these models extensively, one in White and one in Black. They are both low quality guitars, not really entry level either. There is little versatility, weak tone, the low e is too quiet from this single pick up, and the sustain is mediocre at best. The neck on both models were more like Strat necks, than Telecaster, but they were to great. You could feel flaws with the placement of frets and the work on the neck. Stays in tune alright, except for the g on the black model, but that was probably limited to that one. The bodies finish was good. No runs, nothing odd at all.

just another squier

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I think it's just another Squier. It only has a humbucker so I can't complain that it only has 1 volume and 1 tone control. It may not be a good base to make a modified / custom guitar. I had the Deryck Tele for more than 6 months. If you're curious about my background, I have a small collection of guitars from different manufacturers and, though I don't exactly practice everyday, I have been playing for more than 8 years and have performed live.The action was high when I bought it, and it was uncomfortable to play; but a 15 minute adjustment on the truss and bridge made it a lot better.The humbucker / tone feels weird at times. Clean, undistorted tones are not clear enough. Note that I usually use a Gibson Les Paul Standard. Distorted, the Deryck Tele sounds good enough. When I say good enough, I meant that it's good enough that I have something else to play today rather than having nothing. A cheaper Yamaha will give you more tonal versatility.For questions of quality, my copy had a dent and a patch of scratch on the neck (the reverse side of the fretboard). The pickguard scratches very easily. The body itself is more resistant to scratches.I keep my Deryck Tele for sentimental reasons. Don't get caught in an "I got to have this guitar" feeling. I do not recommend this guitar even if you're a Sum41 fan. Get yourself a nicer Mexican Fender or an Ibanez instead of this one. I insist that you do some more window shopping and not get your eyes stuck with this guitar alone.

Only if You Like Sum 41

By '72 Canuckcaster Deluxe

from Canada

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

The main reason I bought the Deryck Whibley Telecaster was because I wanted a back-up/beater guitar that closely resembled my main guitar. From watching live shows of Deryck using it, I anticipated that it wasn't going to sound good. But after plugging it into my setup (Fender Frontman 25R and a Digitech RP80), it actually sounded better than I imagined. But here's my verdict: only buy this guitar if you're a fan of Sum 41 or if you're too lazy to find that pop-punk sound with your own guitars/amps/pedals. If you just want a guitar, overlook this one because there are better guitars out there with more tones than this one.

NOT TOO VERSATILE

By California Scum

from Kanaduh

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I have to say, it's a decent starter guitar. It's a good guitar for people that are fans of Deryck, or like that pop-punk sound. But that's all this guitar can really play. It's not that versatile with its single bridge pickup. So if you're planning to play something other than pop-punk for the rest of your life, buy a standard Telecaster or Strat instead.

Comments about Squier Deryck Whibley Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I picked it up cause I needed a decently priced guitar. I'm usually a bassist, and I started playing guitar more often lately. This thing is actually pretty cool. It's fast, the action is fine, and it sounds good clean or distorted. Heven't tried much else though. It's a really good guitar for anyone looking for a good, budget friendly tele.
