OVERVIEW

For the first time ever, Squier introduces a Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom guitar with Fender-designed Wide Range humbucking pickup in the neck position for incredibly full tone. The Wide Range humbucking pickup is an acclaimed and time-honored Fender innovation, complemented here by a sharp, clear Duncan Designed TE-101B single-coil bridge pickup.

Players have done it for years. Whether installing hotter pickups, different pickguards or just plain personalizing their instruments with distinctive paint jobs, modified means adding new twists to familiar designs. Squier's Vintage Modified series excels at just that, imparting hot-output chop-shop sound, feel and value to traditional instrument designs.

An affordable Tele with a modern neck a large sonic pallete.

    Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    I'm a pedal steel player, who is trying to expand my repertoire. I have been playing guitar for almost 20 years. But, I'm just now, getting into a lot of lead. I would say, this guitar is great, out of the box. But, you MUST adjust the action and intonate. I had to crank down those saddles, like crazy. But, that is expected. Once I got it dialed in, it was a blast to pick on. It feels good. The neck is easy to play. Pickups sound fine. Down the road, I'll probably upgrade the electronics. But, if you take care of this guitar, it will hold up, just fine. I can't stress, how much I recommend, this guitar. Its great.

        Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

        Waited almost 2 months to receive the custom tele. Was not dissapointed. No visible flaws. Tuners are tight and precise, pickups hot and clean. Action is fine right out of the box, even the strings are good. Seems a tad heavier than my strat, but more comfortable to hold and play. 1st new guitar I've bought in 12 years and I really like it. Only negative is the lacquered fretboards..... Never seen that before. Oh well, I would still recommend this guitar for the price. Thanks MF, all the friendly staff.

          Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

          Made in: INDONESIA. WEIGHT: 3.5Kg or IBS: 7.71.
          Ok in my opinion Squier "CHINES" models have better quality control in there factories. I can say this because I own a few Tele's & Strats =CHINES.

          1st, The INDONESIAN quality control is lacking. I own two of these Customs Tele's - BLK & THREE-TONE. The problem, both necks at top> LOW 'E' aren't "FLAT STRAIGHT SQUARE" as they should but are rounded in some spots at top of fretboard. So this is where lack of quality control of neck begins!
          2nd, the ash tray saddles lack the "TELE TWANG" & have found them stiff & hard. Ash tray bridge needs to be changed.
          3rd, one out of my four tone knobs are abit stiff.

          THATS ALL THE NEGATIVE things I can find.
          EVERYTHING ELSE IS AWESOME especially the DUNCAN DESIGNED BRIDGE PICKUP.The finish is very nice and I rate it 10/10. Headstock is absolutely beautiful. The weight is ok but a little heavy in my opinion. NICE PRICE.

          I would like to add that I own many IBANEZ INDONESIAN MADE GUITARS & BASSES and have found IBANEZ QUALITY CONTROL INDONESIA IS OUTSTANDING & IS WAY BETTER QUALITY CONTROL THAN SQUIER INDONESIA. Please see for yourself at your local music shop and compare.

              Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

              I'm very impressed with this Indonesian Tele. It's a whole lotta guitar for three hundred clams! As a fan of Keith Richards, I jumped at the chance to get a Tele Custom that wouldn't break the bank in the process. I especially like the Fender Wide Range humbucker which delivers a nice, rich smoothness whether clean or dirty. I don't think you can find a better guitar in this price range.

              This is one KILLER guitar !! As good as any MIM Fender Tele. Cannot believe the quality for the price. I have a 2002 MIM Fender Strat that I have put away. Fast, comfortabe neck - no rough fret ends, and right out of the box - no buzz - no problems. Got the Sunburst and the gloss finish is just beautiful. Made in Indonesia where I guess they take the time to get everything right. A great buy. Playing 54 years now, and this is one of the best axes I've ever put my fingers to.

                I bought this for my son to replace a First Act Paul Westerberg Model electric that he'd had a number of years and grew out of. I found this and was wary because it's a Squier. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised. I actually used this on my latest CD and this guitar is killer. It plays great, sounds greta and is well put together. The neck is beautiful. It has a maple neck with a relic'd tint to it and it is just uneblievable. Buy this guitar! Now!! One of the best deals ever!!!

                    My first new guitar was a 65 sunburst Fender telecaster, with rosewood neck. I was 10 or 11 and literally slept with the guitar for the first couple of weeks. I'm 62 and when I told my wife I wanted ANOTHER guitar, she barely could understand my need to replace this long lost love. Boy, was I surprised and impressed! Out of the box, this squire plays, sounds, and feels better than my original Fender. I love MF for their quick shipping, low pricing, friendly knowlegable sales people. They are great1

                      Ordered this for my son and received it today from Musician's Friend. Quick shipping and received in great shape. Great set up right out of the box. This is for my son but so far he can't get it awy from his Old Man. This guitar is impressive. It looks beautiful and feels even better. Great sound, looks great, plays great and feels great in my hands... With shipping and tax included I paid less than 3 bills. Best deal ever! I own or have owned Gibsons, Danelectros, Rickenbackers and Fenders made here in the good ol' U.S. of A., as well as Mexico and Japan and would put this Indonesian Squier right in there with any of them and I've been playing professionally for nearly 40 years. I highly recommend this guitar...
