I love this guitar. I've owned mine for 6 or 7 years now and play it all the time. I've actually got several other guitars, including an American Strat Plus, and 9 times out of 10, this is the guitar I reach for. The P90s have a growl that I just can't get with regular single coils. I use this guitar for blues, classic rock and modern rock (I'll grab the Strat or regular Tele for country). I play it through a Tubescreamer into Peavey Classic 30 and it drives that little amp nicely. There is something about this guitar that speaks to me. The neck is chunkier than my Strat. I like that. I actually prefer a glossy neck, but this one plays fine. The finish is good except for a tiny spot on the underside of the neck/body junction. I don't really care. If you look just right, you can see some wood grain and that it's a 3 piece body. The frets feel good, but the fret ends had to be refinished after moving to Colorado (super dry climate). Not the guitar's fault.

The tone knobs work well. It can go from not-quite-as-bright-as-my-Strat to a warm bluesy/jazzy humbucker tone. That's one nice thing about P90s, they give you the best of both worlds while having a tone all their own. Raw. The middle position on the selector switch is humbucking and fat. The pots are smooth and do what you expect, no surprises. Tuning on mine is surprisingly stable for a cheaper guitar, though I've found most guitars can be made stable if you know a few tricks.

Complaints (merely my opinion)...

I'd love to have a gloss neck to give it a more vintage look and feel. Also, I was constantly hitting the selector switch inadvertently when I got into playing. This resulted in the neck pickup getting switched on when I didn't want it. Easy fix, though. I unscrewed it and turned it 90 degrees so it goes left and right instead of up and down. If you already play a Gibson, you're probably used to it, but I'm a Fender guy and it threw me off. I've never been a fan of the cup style jack on Telecasters. I tend to pull them out, so I replaced mine with a square surface mount that screws on with 4 wood screws. I replaced the strap buttons with lockable ones, but I suppose that's not a complaint, just a mod. I also wish that the pickguard was a more popular shape. I've got the vintage blonde model and I think it would look cool with a tortoise PG.

All in all, I give this guitar a very high rating. I love playing mine. Whenever I need some growl or big tone, this is the guitar I reach for. I know it's a Squier, but if it feels right and plays right, who cares?

I had read a lot of reviews about this guitar both here and in Harmony Central and was really looking forward to owning this very cool retro looking Telecaster. Unfortunately, the P-90 pickups aren't (at least not in the one I got) good sounding at all. Some might say that you should expect to change out the pickups for the price of this guitar but then it wouldn't be an outstanding value would it? IMHO it sounds sort of like a single coil that you dull up a bit by turning the tone down on. On clean settings, both pickups sound muddy on their own but with both engaged, it tends to sound a little prettier. Contrary to other reviewers, these pickups are noisy. I compared it clean (no effects)to my 1986 Jap Strat loaded with Texas Specials and it hums loudly. Also compared to an old Tex Mex Strat that I have with Tex Mex pickups and the Tele was still way noisier. These comparisons were done with the neck pickup & bridge pickups separately, together they hum cancel. I even compared to and old Korean made Squier II Strat with a PLYWOOD body and ceramic single coils that I also have and the old Squier II sounded fatter and more tonefull, even with the CERAMIC single coils! To add insult to injury, the worksmanship could be better. The bridge was screwed to the body slightly skewed. At first, I thought it might be the pickguard that was cut a little shorter on one side but no, it was the bridge. I measured the distance from the bottom of the bridge pickup to the edge of the bridge and it was an 1/8" lower on the treble side. I might have let it go if it was on the bass side like the bridge on a Les Paul but I was afraid it would cause intonation problems that could not be overcome. Also, mine came without the pickup selector knob and the input jack cup was feeling loose and almost falling out of the body. The only good thing I can say about this guitar is that with distortion (I have a Metal MUFF), the bridge pickup rocks like a humbucker. It is much better than both of the bridge pickups in a Texas Special or Tex Mex set like I have. With a pickup swap and re- drilling the body to straighten the bridge, this guitar would be pretty good but I don't have time, too many projects already so its going back.

A Sleeper in the Squier line

By Frank Hudson

See all my reviews

Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

Overall this is one of those packages were the sum of the parts far exceeds what you'd think they'd add up to. I keep coming back to the sound of this thing: it's gloriously rude though a good amp. The medium weight and the nice beefy neck let you hammer on it all night and leads snarl out of it. Compared to copies of Gibson's LP Jr guitars this one has some extra snap and note definition from the longer Fender scale and all of the classic sound of P90s. The dual vol/tone pot setup lets you get some additional shades of sound too.
Two Duncan Designed P90 style pickups, Gibson style four knob 2 tone 2 volume controls with toggle switch. Fender Telecaster body, neck and scale length. Slab body, no "Strat style" contours.

Although the four knob arrangment isn't ideal for volume swells or tone knob wah-wah effects, it allows different pickup blends and the flip the pickjup selector switch with one pickup turned all the way down stutter effect.

Medium to medium heavy in weight. Neck is a bit beefy in a good way. If you've been turned off by other Squiers with skinny necks, this isn't one.
I've had mine for couple of years. No issues with the hardware or electronics. The traditional Tele socket jack can get loose on any Tele. It's the one weak spot in the original Telecaster design.

The pickups have that P90 sound and combined with the body and Fender scale length make this thing snarl. Good upper mid range to midrange emphasis that cuts with various levels of gain from pedals or amps. It's the first guitar I grab when I want an agressive punky thrash. With lower levels of gain, a nice clean sound too. Not jangly or trebbly sweet like a traditional Fender single coil, but warmer. Like other P90s, either single pickup selection will hum--it's a bigger coil than a traditional Fender pickup too and the background noise it picks up is greater as well. Middle position/both pickups selected is hum canceling however. In louder, gainier settings the noise humming below the signal with one pickup selected is almost part of the charm, you just turn down when you aren't playing.

Mine has perfectly acceptable fret work and finish. The neck finish is not artificially darkened, but is also not glossy giving it a nice feel.

Like all Telecasters this guitar has the feeling that you could stuff it in a burlap sack and thrown it in the back of a truck and it's come out and be ready to play the next day.
Attention to the best values in the Fender Squier line has moved to the newer Vintage Vibe models, but this older model is all that too.

    Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

    I bought this guitar for a backup. I was surprised to find the string height was good and the intonation needed only one string adjusted. The strings were good, also. It plays easily and has a sweet sound in the neck and neck/bridge pickup position. It does not have the Fender super sharp growl with the bridge pickup only as you will find on a single coil set of pickups. It does have some bite, however.The pots worked well without noise as well as the switch.It is very light and easy to handle. Neck action is good. It has a nearly "Gibson" tone in position 2. It looks good and plays good.I really like this instrument and the price is very good. Much better quality than I expected. This is a keeper. I would buy another one without hesitation.

    Review update.

    Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

    8
    I bought one a couple of months ago and was a little dissapointed in the frets extending from the fingerboard but it was not unplayable. I thought I would get to it with a file later. The procrastination and the fact that I have other guitars to play paid off. The frets are now flush and smooth to the neck! It seems like the only explanation in my case is that the neck wood expanded with humidity. It may have taken time to penetrate the finish. I wanted to take the time to post this as I am very happy with the guitar and think new buyers may be missing out on a winner based on the initial condition. I think the humidity is around 50%where I live in San Diego. I would suggest keeping the guitar for a few weeks out of it's case.

    A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT

    Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

    Yesterday UPS delivered my Squier Tele Custom ll, I finally got one I thought. Upon removing it from the cheap shipping carton, I could see every fret protruding far enough to cut or gouge a person.
    The agathis body wood seemed like it had been hollowed out as it was feather light. I never even plugged the guitar in, I call MF for a return authorization and they obliged by sending a prepaid UPS label. It went back the next day. Really a huge disappointment !
    The quality seemed lacking, I've read where other players have compared these to the MIM and China but this Indonesian one that I sent back back was lacking quality everywhere.

    I have a 2010 and wanted another, thats how good mine sounds. This was a 2011, and after A/B with the same Fender amp, the sound is not the same. Either the pickups are made to a different spec, at another factory, or some capacitor has been added to the circuit which makes these great pickups sound run of the mill.

    Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

    This is a super playing, sounding guitar. if it came in a brown sunburst or vintage blonde i'd buy one. I have a story about this guitar. this is true. A good freind owns a small guitar store. he aquired a VOS les paul for me at a show, which i gave him the money for, and he picked it up. I was really dissapointed with the neck (it was way skinny for a 58' it came off the standard rack..no doubt!) and he told me he could sell that one and get another at the next show but i was bummed cause i knew it was probably going to be weeks. while i was waiting he let me take home a guitar to play and i took one of these. a few weeks later he sold mine and gave me a call. i had to remind myself that i had been saving for the gibson for over a year. i did not want to give this thing back. . this is a great guitar and the duncan designed p-90's sound better than any other soap bar on a guitar in this price range. the neck is gibson fat,and round, really nice. the bodies are also really heavy and dense. this guitar is closer to sounding like a gold top LP than the epiphone gold tops.

    Squire Tele Custom II with P-90 Pickups -- Great Value for the Price!

    By Robert Marble

    from Central California

    Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

    I've been playing Rock N Roll for nearly fourty years, and have owned more that 30 guitars, and this Squire Tele is becomming one of my favorites, ...at any price. Exceptional value for the money (a real winner)! :-)
    I've had my Squire Tele Customer II for two years now, and had used it at home through a practice amp (i.e., I bought it to learn G Tuning, ala Kieth Richards/Rolling Stones). But I've never played it through a large amp at full volume. Well, I took it for a test drive today at Chruch through a full stack (and a large room). I figured it would sound decent without distortion, but feared it would squeal when I hit the heavy distortion. To my delight, I hit the heavy distortion, and the P-90 Humbuckers sounded fantastic (solid, crunchy and bright, ...with no pickup feedback or buzz whatsoever). I'm going to start using it with my new Alternative/Rock band, 'My Father's Son' next week. It's a real winner for the price!
    The frets are a bit high, and I wish the neck was finished, but for the price, I couldn't have asked for more. It has great intonation and it really stays in tune. Looks great too!
    All around, it's the best 'under $300' guitar I've ever owned. I am truly impressed.

    not as expected

    By John Franklin

    from Pennsylvania

    See all my reviews

    Ask me a question

    Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

    For some this guitar will work fine, either as a starter instrument or as a backup for gigs. For me it was unacceptable mainly because the agathis body was so light that it threw the entire guitar off-balance, which made it uncomfortable to play. The fret problem was inexcusable. Aside from that the guitar is pretty solid, with decent, but still low-grade hardware, great Tele Deluxe style knobs and switch, and, of course, killer looks! I really wanted this guitar to work for me, but it just didn't.
    This guitar's biggest asset is its pickups, which have a great sound. I've always liked the Tele Deluxe, and this guitar has similar controls: pickup selector and tone and volume knobs for each pickup. The rest is standard Tele stuff.
    For the price, I didn't expect much, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that the workmanship wasn't completely lacking. The biggest problem I found was that the frets in some places extended beyond the edge of the neck, and would dig into my hand when i moved up and down the fretboard. Another issue was the cheap agathis body, which was signifcantly lighter than my American Standard Tele's alder one. It was so light that the neck actually weighed down the guitar, and I found myself constantly trying to pull up the neck and/or push down the body.
    For me (I can't speak for others), the guitar was unacceptable because it was unbalanced and virtually unplayable, but based on its features and looks alone it's definitely worth the cost. The pickups, in my opinion, make up for the low-quality materials and mediocre workmanship.

    I think that this guitar is a great guitar for everyone but mainly new learners and intermediate players. I bought this guitar when I was first learning how to play and had a lot of fun with it myself. The highlight of the guitar is the P90 pickups and how great they react when you play. OVer the years it's been great for me and it also has a nice look to it with the maple neck. I have the black one, but my friend has the blonde and both of them look great. Overall it's a great guitar for practice and jamming and I highly recommend buying one.

      Great clean tone

      By ThingsAbove

      from NC

      Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

      I got one of these used from a friend who had replaced the Squier neck with an '80s Fender Tele neck. I love the tone produced by this guitar. I've never owned an instrument with P90s before but I do have Tele knockoff and this guitar is waaay meatier than standard Tele pickups but it has a beautiful clean tone with a lot of bite in the bridge. The neck pickup gives a great smooth lead tone. The pups have enough output to distort nicely but keep in mind they are single coils so you won't get metal type harmonics when they are overdriven just a lot of crunch.It was noisy until it was shielded. The pickguard doesn't lie flat and buckles at a couple points and the 3-way switch is floppy. That's all Squier but the tone is great so if you want something between a single coil and humbucker sound you won't go wrong with this guitar.

      Poor Quality

      By Thomas Knobloch

      from Texas

      Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

      I was so disappointed in this guitar. You shouldn't have to get frets re-worked on a new guitar. There is also no excuse for the screws falling out of the pickguard or the sub-par electronics.
      Almost every fret extended beyond the neck making the guitar near impossible to play. A screw was missing from the pickguard and closer inspection revealed that several other screw holes were stripped. The bridge pickup gives off a loud whistling buzz that. The noise does not cancel when both pickups are activated. POTs are scratchy when turned.

      First of all...forget that it says 'Squier" on the headstock. This instrument has a quality feel, and nice components.....Than plug it into your favorite amp, the sound is amazing, from 60's jangle to meaty distortion with beatiful ringing overtones, flick the switch and play rippin leads with a ghostly familiar beatles vibe. The tones are sophisticated and if you want to sound vintage it can do that but if you want to play distortion as in punk or metal it will take you to a less traveled, more original souding place...i can barley put it down.

      Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

      The title says it all. If you wanna' play some Stones, SRV, anything bluesy...then this is a nice *starter* guitar that will get you the tones you desire. Look for this price don't expect handmade American built quality, but for this price you get a pretty solid guitar that can deliver some solid bluesy smack. The pups are solid p-90's, they aren't going to deliver hardcore crunch, but I will say they can fake a good VH tone, *fake* being the key word there. Two tone control knobs make for awesome possibilities, and played clean...it's as good as it gets...espcially with just a touch of chorus on it. Solid instrument, can't go wrong for the price. Just remember, it is basically for blues or clean tones. Good guitar for the price!

      Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

      I have wanted a Tele with p-90?s for along time and finally decided to buy this one. Out of the box it was okay. The blond finish is a tad yellow for my taste but it will do. The squire website states the neck is gloss. Mine is satin and had drip marks on the headstock. Not a great start. The body is clean and the buff out is very good. The pick guard looks okay. The screw holes are not countersunk enough to make the screws flush against the top. The neck is really fat. Louisville Slugger fat. It takes some getting used to. The tuners were loose and could not be tightened so when the strings pull against them they lean toward the nut. The pickups are good, the volume and tone controls are mini?s. When you look inside you will find the body is a laminate. I guess you can?t be too choosy. But my Squire Tele thin line is only 50 bucks more and it is way better quality. So after I replace the tuners and controls I may have a good guitar but if you can?t do these repairs spend a little more money and get a better guitar.

      Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

      Seriously, for $ you're getting a lot of guitar. I love the P-90's. They really make this one stand out. Nice and punchy, with a wider sound than the standard Tele single-coils and a fuller sustain. Individual volume and tone knobs for the pickups really give you a lot of sound to play with, as well. The neck on this thing is a joy to play. Very comfortable and playable. Fit and finish on this was excellent. Playable straight out of the box. A few screws on the pickguard were not in straight, but that was it and it was an easy fix. This is my second foray into the Vintage Modified Series (the first being a Thinline) and I have to give Squier some credit, they are making some really nice guitars for not a lot of money. You can't go wrong at this price.

      Comments about Squier Tele Custom II Electric Guitar with P-90 Pickups:

      100% looks, ZERO substance. I really wanted to like this guitar, but the quality is a little too poor...worse than I was expecting when I bought it. Frets hang out from the neck and make the neck near unplayable...it's very bad. And I think the P-90 covers just hide a pair of the cheapest pickups ever made. Pair those up with the really bad quality wiring and pots, and it just sounds horrible. I know it isn't a $1000 guitar, but this was really a disappointment, even for the price. I returned it...it was literally unplayable with those frets...VERY BAD FRETS!!!
