      Comments about Vintage Modified Squier '51:

      I bought this guitar after spending about a year on bass. I knew Squier had a pretty good reputation now and the vintage Modified line is pretty highly regarded. This guitar is no exception. The pickups do what you'd expect at this price, but style offer pretty good tonal options. I'd give this guitar 5 stars but mine didn't come with the best of setups and i don't care much for the pickguard. Still a great instrument for beginners and budget musicians.

        Comments about Vintage Modified Squier '51:

        Great guitar, that's all. I picked up an original at a pawn shop for 90 big ones with no pick guard. I bought it to replace a strat I had sold a few months earlier, and figured I would mod it. I put a fender vintage noiseless in the neck, and a SD Jeff Beck in the bridge, and I have to say.....she wails!!! I also bought a black pickguard for a sunburst guitar. Honestly I like it better than my LP now.

              1st - I love the neck...really. I love TO neck too, but I digress. Anyway, the feel of the neck suites my hand pefectly, the playability not so much. I had it set up by a pro luthier right out of the gate (neck had to be shimmed a tad, decent strings installed, lowered action, intonation, etc.) and it still feels sloppy to me. The pups are meh, but I didn't expect a lot - you shouldn't either. Fit and finish is fine. For the MF price and fast delivery - 5 stars. For instrument just a 3 from me.

                Comments about Vintage Modified Squier '51:

                Let me start out by saying im a perfectionist with every instrument I own. I own about 7 guitars but I was looking for something I can call my own. I have plenty of stock strats and teles and even a mustang and jazzmaster but something about this guitar caught my eye. I knew right away id be putting more money into modding the guitar than it actually costs. out of the box this guitar played about how I expected it to. right away I noticed some sharp fret edges and fret buzz but with some tweaking that's not a problem. like I said I modded this guitar to the max to make it my own. I added a dimarzio super distortion in the bridge, a dimarzio true velvet in the neck, added sperzel locking tuners, graph tech ferrules, and dimarzio 500 k pots. this guitar is something is the one I can say I love more than any other. its unique and its sound is near flawless running through a Rolland jazz chorus. even if you don't mod it to death its definitely a fun guitar. the vintage blonde finish is gorgeous as well. highly recommended for guitarists of any skill level.

                  Comments about Vintage Modified Squier '51:

                  This was the first electric guitar I got after playing an acoustic for about a year or so. It felt amazing at the time and I enjoyed it a lot. After playing for several more years, I upgraded to a Schecter Damien Elite FR. I have since began to play this guitar again, and I was shocked at how it still felt like a quality guitar after almost 10 years of playing guitar. For the price, this guitar is excellent. It has good clean and dirty sounds. It cannot quite get dirty enough for heavy metal, but it sounds great for blues or classic rock. I definitely recommend it to a beginner or even an intermediate player on a budget.

                    I got mine for Christmas. The sunburst is beautiful. You can get any sound that you want out of this thing. The neck is the best that I've ever played. Honestly, it's better than the necks on the American Fenders. At this point my Strat could get stolen and I wouldn't care, but if you try to take this guitar I'll take your life. I'm considering getting another one. Punk, Metal, Country, Jazz, Classic Rock, Blues, you can play them all with this guitar.
