I want to preface by saying I almost NEVER write reviews for products. However, I've been so happy with my Vintage Modified Mustang I felt I had to. I've been playing guitar for about 14 years now. I've owned and played a variety of quality instruments. I own a Gibson Custom Shop Firebird, American Strat, Gibson Les Paul, etc. I have to say that when I got my Mustang a couple days ago, I was completely blown away. I originally bought this guitar as a project guitar to learn how to do some luthier work and I've always liked off sets so the Mustang made sense. Out of the box it looked absolutely stunning. Aside from my Firebird it might be the most aesthetically pleasing guitar that I own. The first thing I figured I would do is replace the pickups at some point. I expected the Duncan Designs to sound better than you're average Squier pickup... but these honestly sound WAY better than I expected. It looks amazing, sounds really, really good, obviously when I first got it I had to stretch the strings out (strings that come with it aren't the best but good enough to leave on until a change is needed). So out of the box I just made sure to stretch the strings along the fretboard, bend each one behind the nut and bridge a bit and now it almost always stays in tune. I know a lot of people had issues with the bridge so I was a bit worried, but I've had ZERO issues with it and it's obviously much better than a jag bridge. I would say that I'm pretty average in regard to how "hard" I play and I haven't had any screws in the bridge or the strings themselves slip. If I were to say there was something not so great about this guitar I'd say maybe at some point if you're serious about it you might want to change the pots at some point. This is to be expected since almost all guitar companies regardless of their status try to save money (toggles, pots, etc). I feel that the range of the pots could be a bit better but they roll smoothly and do the job. the pickup switches are great and work really well once you understand how they operate. Intonation and everything was good, seemed like the guitar was set up well. I don't say any bow in the neck at all. I've played this guitar literally every day for hours on end since I've had it and I absolutely love the sound. Bridge pickup bites enough without being too hot, the neck pickup is super smooth and both of them together whether they're in series or not sound great. At some point will I switch out the pickups? Probably. However, this isn't due to the fact that I dislike the pickups, I think they're great, but I want the experience of learning how to wire pickups and I'd love to put a set of really nice boutique pickups in it. So, overall, I absolutely LOVE this thing. A bit bummed out since you don't get any gig bag or anything, but I also figured the money I spent was ALL GUITAR. If you're considering buying any of the vintage modified series, DO IT! My first guitar ever was a Squier and let me tell you... they have come an EXTREMELY long way. Leaps and bounds. I honestly think I'm going to wait a while and just enjoy this guitar for what it is before I actually start to do work on it and that was not my intention at first. I expected a below average or average instrument perfect to mod and do work on and ended up with an excellent guitar for the money and I'll probably enjoy it for some time before I even think about touching it.

I love everything about this guitar except for the bridge,which is terrible.It slides alot out of place detuning the guitar.not only that but the intonation screws on the D and B strings are popping out on mine touching the strings which cause them to buzz and not resonate like they are supposed to.what i do like about the mustang is the short scale and comfortable body.I plan on trying to fix this issue myself or pay a luthier to install a tune o matic to replace the poor stock bridge.I guess if you know how to set up the bridges on these guitars, i would reccomend it, if not your better off with a strat.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

        Got the Sonic Blue, which is a bit lighter than the Sonic Blue Strat I had a decade ago, but still nice. Careful inspection showed no finish flaws, tight neck pockets, and great alignment of all parts. After making sure there were no flaws, I took off the strings, removed the bridge and unscrewed the baseplate of the tailpiece. I moved the springs from the loosest to the tightest position, lowered the tailpiece and bridge just a bit. They weren't bad, but I was looking to lower the action and increase string tension. Shimmed the neck with a bit of business card, again not necessary, but looking to increase the neck angle a smidge. Restrung with .11s with a wound G (which I ordered at the same time as the guitar). Intonation was dead-on after raising the saddle for the G just a bit to get clearance over the front edge of the bridge. Tuners felt great. Frets are smooth, no string buzz. Neck is good and chunky, like the vintage "C" on my Stratocaster, and I really like the shorter scale length (smallish hands). The volume and tone pots are very responsive, the switches seem solid, and I like the pickups. I couldn't be happier with this guitar. It plays and sounds like something twice the price. None of the stuff I did was necessary (other than raising the saddle), as the guitar was absolutely playable out of the box. I just like to get under the hood a little once I'm pretty sure I'm keeping the guitar.

        This is a very cool guitar. It looks great and the Duncan pickups sound really good. The neck on this guitar is feels great. The only problem is the bridge rattle and buzz. I order a new bridge it is an easy drop in and it fixes the problem. The extra cost for a new bridge is why I gave this Mustang 4 stars instead of 5. I love Squier guitars and I think this is another winner.

            Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

            I bought this Mustang from MF as a "Condition 4 - Needs Repair - fret buzz" used instrument. The problem wasn't the frets but the bridge. The intonation screws angle upward and touched the strings because the screws are to long ( at least on this guitar ).It was impossible to intonate the guitar. The fix was simple, I installed shorter screws. Another minor problem was the trem arm which is to sloppy and flops around. The set screw adjustment for it only lasts a short time before it becomes loose again. The fix was to put a small piece of rubber, cut from a surgical glove, over the hole then push the arm in. Now it stays put but still moves easilly.
            I owned an original '65 Mustang back in 1967 and this new VM model is pretty faithful to the original. The main differences are a flatter neck radius and jumbo frets on the Squier VM. The color is also more of a faded red then the advertised fiesta red. The pickups are hotter than vintage mustangs but sound good. I was able to set the action pretty low and it plays great. The Kluson style tuners work fine and tremelo stays in tune pretty well.

              Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

              To be honest, this has become one of my favorite guitars. I used to own a Kurt Cobain Mustang and I actually prefer the feel and sound of this guitar. It has a thick neck that feels great in my hands, and the short scale is ridiculously fun to play. However, the bridge is the weakest part. The saddles wouldn't stay at the right height (but some Loctite fixed that) and I had to flip it upside down to stop buzzing, but after that it hasn't had any intonation problems and hasn't buzzed. If you don't mind putting a couple hours into getting a proper setup and messing with the bridge, this guitar is worth every penny.

                  I'm glad I bought it. Got it for a good price during the sale. Worth the money.

                  The Sonic Blue is very, very pale. Appears mint green in certain light.

                  I've never had a floating trem before, and I'm not sure if it's indicative of all such, but this does not stay in tune well. I'm researching how to set it up. I'll see if that helps.

                  Love the short scale. I've got a Les Paul DC that is a joy to play. This is similar but with jumbo frets. Nice change of pace.

                  Overall good, but hopefully with a setup it'll be great.

                  Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

                  I love this guitar; I've wanted a mustang for six years but could never afford one until this model by Squire came out. The shorter scale neck length is fast and fun to play on. This guitar gets very nice out of phase and hoopey sounds, especially through a distortion pedal and i'm going to be using it when i record my band's demo; however, there are a couple things I don't like about this guitar (1) the bridge is terrible; i have to constantly adjust the action because the screws that are used for fine action adjustment don't stay in place. i'm not entirely sure what's happening here because I got it used without an owner's manual but i will be purchasing a Fender Mustang bridge soon. (2) the tremelo system is a bit wonky; i haven't used it much because the first time i ever played with it i pushed it down and it flew off with all the strings attached to it. (3) the high e string groove on my guitar's nut is too close to the edge of the fretboard so it makes the e string awkward to play on, i know it's not the neck that's too small because there's more than enough space on the other side of the string to push it back a notch.

                  Arrived with no obvious flaws or blemishes. Great sound and tone with clean and distortion. 24" scale makes it much easier to reach difficult chord patterns. After a week I replaced the poorly made saddles on the bridge, because the height adjustment screws kept loosening up, causing buzzing. Replaced the entire bridge assembly with a genuine fender mustang saddle and the problem was solved. A 30 buck investment made this the guitar it should have been. In the long run, this guitar was worth the money.

                    This Squier Mustang comes very close to the mid '60s models that I let slip away decades ago. The "Fiesta Red" color is a bit milky and nicer than the original color. I love it! Most importantly the neck is done well with very good fret work like the originals.

                        I couldn't be more happy with my purchase of the Squire Mustang. The guitar is stunning in vintage white and it's very well made. Through my newly acquired Bugera tube amp, the guitar sounds fantastic whether I'm playing Beatles tunes or classic rock.

                          The guitar needed minor action adjustment, i like it low. pickups needed to be raised up. The trem took a little while to set in, but now stays in tune well. I feel this guitar is better than the MIJ Mustangs. great fret work, no flaws any where. I like the sound of the pickups. Light weight body is nice.

                          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

                          I've always loved Mustangs, but never understood why Fender never made a more affordable version. When I saw that Squier was making their own, I pre-ordered it without ever playing it.

                          The guitar is beautiful. The Sonic Blue is a bit paler than others I've seen, but still very eye-catching. It's a versatile little guitar and plays like a dream. The neck is a little fatter than what I was expecting. It feels more like a Strat than a Mustang, but is still very comfortable.

                          After playing this, I'm very tempted to check out the Jaguar, Jazzmaster and Telecaster in this series.

                          The guitar was not playable out of the box, but that's to be expected. After some minor tweaks, it was ready to go. It does go out of tune frequently but usually when bending or using the tremolo. That may be because of the low quality strings that came on it, but I wouldn't care to mod it with a Tune-o-matic and upgraded tuners if needed as it's quickly becoming my favorite guitar to play.

                          pretty rad guitar, can definitely hold its own with it's Fender older brother, slight fret buzz on a couple strings but easy to fix and needs a professional set up, definitely can't play it right out of the box. sounds great with a little overdrive and reverb. if you're going for that indie rock feel this is the one for you.

                            Love this guitar, very true to the original Mustangs. I love everything about this guitar except one thing... the color I got (fiesta red) was a LOT lighter than what was seen in the pictures, I was expecting the red to be a lot darker red color than what it really is. At times in the light it almost has this orange'ish effect to it. It took sometime getting used to it but I still love this guitar

                              This Vintage Modified Mustang was a great surprise when I pulled it out of the box, sounds great, plays great and just a beautiful guitar. I chose the fiesta red and glad I did . A beautiful color on a mustang guitar. Might have to change out the bridge later, time will tell . Sounds great so far no buzz.

                                I wrote a review after I got this maybe a day after. I've had this now for 5 days. I've come to the conclusion after reading all these bad reviews about the bridge that people aren't setting up the guitar first and/or are using the term. First off , don't use the term. You can replace it for pretty cheap if need it. I don't use the term . I lowered the bridge pretty clos to all the way and then adjusted the bridge saddles, set the truss rod and then set the intonation. I have not had one single problem with the bridge or with it staying in tune. The string tension was increased by doing all of this first and some of the bridge buzz was coming from the saddles being to low to the bridge. Set this guitar up before using it, it's nearly unplayable out of the box. Now let me get to the craftsmanship. It's bad, I thought about sending mine back but it plays so well now , it really is unbelievable. I figured if I send it back , the new one might not be any better from the reviews I read. The neck pocket is sloppy on the underside near the neck, it's like that on my MIM Blacktop Strat too but not as bad as this, maybe it's common, I don't know. A couple of higher frets have filler visible and has dried glue on the fret board. Other than that ,it's perfect. I guess I'll just live with it the way it is. The pickups sound great but are low output. The guitar is very comfortable standing and playing. No neck dive and it's light guitar, it's not 11 pounds like i saw in a review somewhere. I would gues maybe 7 pounds , it's lighter than my MIM Strat. I would buy it again. It's better than I expected in some ways and in other way some it's worse. Squier needs to step up the QA on these. I've owned many Squiers and never had this bad of fit and finish on them, and many of those are Made in China.

                                Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

                                I bought this after reading the reviews and was a little worried but I wanted this retro looking guitar. The craftsmanship is lacking , wood glue left on the higher frets, jagged and unfinished neck pocket on the bottom side of neck, but I think that's common with these because of the very tight spacing. As far as the bridge as string tension goes, here is how I fixed mine and it worked. However I don't use the term and won't , I have no use for it. When I first plodded it in the string tension was very loose and the G string was buzzing and vibrating off of the bridge. So I lowered the bridge just about all the way down a little at a time with adjusting the bridge saddles after every turn of the bridge being lowers. Lowering the bridge and raising the saddles does two things and it worked perfect for me. Lowering the bridge created more string tension, a lot more and raising the saddles gives the strings plenty of clearance over the edge of the bridge and sets the action. Now this guitar has tremendous action, no more buzz anywhere and the intonation is still on, I didn't have to adjust that at all. This whole operation took me 15 minutes. Sound: This is a brilliant sounding guitar. I use it with my Boss DS-2 . The guitar's tone cuts right through the distorion. I play a ton of Nirvana and Black Flag. You will not be disappointed. Just be patient , lower that bridge and raise those saddles. I can't stress that enough. I can't comment on the term, I don't use terms and never will. I hope this helps.
