    Chiming, jangle-pop tone with vintage vibe, value and versatility.

    Built on the Fender® '69 Telecaster platform, the semi-hollow Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline features a rosewood fingerboard, Duncan Designed™ Telecaster pickups, chrome knurled knobs, a parchment pickguard, vintage six-saddle bridge and three-way switching. The distinctive f-hole design and semi-acoustic construction come together for a unique, jangle-pop vibe at an amazing price. This guitar also has a vintage 6-saddle bridge, allowing for more control over intonation. From The Byrds to early R.E.M. to now, America loves jangle pop, and this is the perfect guitar for this, power pop or any style. The shorter 24-3/4" scale length makes note bending easier.

    Vintage Modified! Players from beginner to intermediate and beyond have done it for years—whether installing hotter pickups, alternate pickguards, or just plain personalizing their instruments with fancy paint jobs, modified means adding new twists to a familiar design. Squier's Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline guitar features a semi-hollow body with a distinctive f-hole and classic Tele® tone from two Duncan Designed™ Telecaster pickups.

    HUGE TONE IN LIGHT WEIGHT BODY

    I m one of those who doesnt care about guitars brand-price to get a great tone. All guitars is made of same materials, maybe the diference is in manufacturing human supervision, electronics, wood, etc. But if you upgrade a squier with better pickups and electronics it could sound so great as a MIA. I preffer get a high priced tone in a low cost guitar, so my pocket doesnt get broke. I have 3 solid body teles, and I bought this squier because I always wanted to have a thinline hollow body. The stock pickups sound great, but they will suit your tonal taste if you are a short hair rocker, or if wear cowboy boots and hat, yeeha!. I prefer a hotter tone, so I installed a Dimarzio tonezone lead and a Fender custom shop neck.You d be afraid of thinlines light weight, but the tone you get is huge, heavy weight tone. The trebbles cuts a razor edge but doesnt sound skinny, the bass sounds fat as a cow butt, but not too muddy; I think this guitar brings out the best tone a Tele could deliver. The small frets make easier the playing, maybe someone how plays with jumbo frets would feel unconfortable with this, but I like it! The low weight is friendly with my shoulder and the small frets is friendly with my hands.This is great sounding guitar, easy to play and offer a diferent tele tone compared to solid body teles, Buy it! you wont regret!

    I would recommend this guitar to anyone. It is basically a mellow sounding telecaster because of the semi-hollowbody. I would definitely buy one again if it was stolen.
    This is a really great guitar for a beginner or an intermediate player. Pickup-wise and control-wise it is setup just like a regular tele. But that makes it really simple, yet effective.
    I didnt give it a perfect score because of two things: the tuners go out of tune fairly easily and the neck is un-finished(or at least satin finish) and i am a glossy neck kind of guy.
    For this price, it can get such a broad range of sounds. I think this is a really good value guitar. I can get everything for jazz sounds to metal out of it.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

      This guitar out of the box was in great shape. Beautiful color and great feel. The action was a little high for my taste, but with a little adjustment it feels great. The tuners are decent, but I will eventually upgrade them to some schalers as usual. I am mainly a tele player and it plays just as good as some of my mim teles and almost as good as my usa made teles. Overall this is a great working instrument and at such a low price.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

      As I said, I LOVE this guitar. It is light, sounds great and for the money you cannot beat it. People can't believe it's a Squier. And the color is very nice. You will not be disappointed.
      I LOVE this guitar, don't tell me it's a Squier!

      It's a Squier...

      By ALIEN ROCKER-x4Dhe

      from Roswell, NM.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

      It's a Squier, what can I say? On the plus side, it's light and the fret board feels really nice. The Shoreline gold is a beautiful color. Tuners, bridge and set up seemed pretty good out of the box. O.K, now for the downside. As I mentioned the guitar is real light which is cool except it makes it neck heavy like an SG. The pups are about 30% weaker than my strat. I guess that is to be expected from a guitar at this price point, I just prefer a little more meat. Overall, you get what you pay for and if you dont mind these issues then this guitar can get the job done. The 24.75" scale was the selling point for me but I think I will just stick with my coil splitting LP.

      Squire Surprise!

      By revel8or

      from Hamiltucky, OH

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

      I have flexible criteria when buying a guitar. For example, I had an old acoustic, cheap Alvarez whose action was best described like "grand canyon," but emitted a rich, balanced tone like no other. I've had an original Steinberger with active EMGs. I loved the action and playability, but the tone was just a tad lifeless. I can fall in love with aspects of certain guitars and overlook some of the shortcomings.SO...I've avoided Squier because they are Squiers. Never, ever, ever have I considered one. When I went to the local store, they had two of these hanging on the wall. I commented to the sales dude that the guitarist of the first band that I was in back in '90 had a Thinline reissue and that I always loved the tone. He grabbed one and said that this one was new from the box and just got set up. He said (and I was taking in with a grain of salt) that these were some of the best guitars that Squier had ever released - the craftsmanship was actually very good.I tried it in a Champ, a Frontman, and a Deluxe - and barring the character of tube vs solid state, this guitar sang. Really. The tone was smooth, clear, and glassy. It carried a bit of a twang, but not ear bleedingly so. Perhaps a little more "modern" sounding. As far as the finish, setup not withstanding as guitars tend to buzz when faced with seasonal changes, etc., this is one of three guitars that I have been completely happy with the fit of the neck and body, and the feel of the frets. I really like the sound of the pickups. Generally, I buy pickups when I buy the guitar...but not this time.If you have a chance to get one of these rare, inexpensive gems, DO IT before they are gone!The music that I make now varies between ambient and electronic...think pink floyd/radiohead/xtc/the orb...

      I play this guitar quite a lot. It's beautiful and has a smooth sound, but somewhat buzzes and sometimes I have trouble with the electric hook up or whatever.

      Just as good as the Fender version.

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

      I got this guita in black, and I had it for over a year, and I love it. The sound is really nive and warm, good for some Blink 182 songs such as " I miss You". I been playin a long time and this guitar is great for the price. The finish is not the best but its still great, the action is good too. Overall I reccomed this for a Pro or beginner over the Fender version.

      Never knew Squier could be this good!

      By Squier Believer

      from California

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

      I have always been a Fender snob, never thinking I'd own a Squier. After reading many reviews on the net I thought I'd give it a try. I can't believe what a great value this guitar is! Beautiful finish, set up perfectly and plays smoothly. You could upgrade the pick ups if you like, but they are as good as any MIM Fender. On that note, the frets are dressed better than my Fender MIM Duo Sonic. Very satisfied with my purchase!

      Comments about Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar:

      This guitar gives me a love,hate feeling. It is not a good value when comparing it to other solid body guitars. The Pro's are Feel, I have more tuning problems with my double locking trem than this thing, the tuners really work well. The bad is the pickups, they are awful. I also don't like the "Alder plywood" they glued together. I think the new LTD SHB guitar will give my suqire a run for it money on all features,quality, and value.
