Squier's Vintage Modified series excels at just that, imparting hot-output chop-shop sound, feel and value to traditional instrument designs.

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.

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:

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.

Small Problems on a Great Guitar

    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.

      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.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Electric Guitar:

        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.

        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.

          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 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.

                Very surprised about the quality and sound, it was well worth the money and looks great. My only complaint is I could not set the intonation on the bridge, I adjusted the screws but all strings remained sharp. I have played squier before and was not impressed but decided to try the mustang and was very happy with it. I also have played a original 69 mustang and the squier sounded very very close
