Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster

The Squier Classic Vibe guitars are getting some very favorable comments from a lot of people. The reason is obvious - it's and inexpensive but very good guitar. The options are the Classic Vibe Telecaster '50s, the Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s and '60s and the Duo-Sonic '50s.

They look great too. The Tele especially has been getting a lot of attention. It's got a blonde finish and the body is made out of pine. That's the first time I've heard of a pine Telecaster. The neck is maple and has 21 medium jumbo frets. The radius is 9.5 inches, with a modern C shape.

The pickups are Alnico III, and they do sound very good. I don't think it's necessary to upgrade the pickups, unless you need noiseless perhaps.

The bridge is a Vintage style string-thru body with a 3-Brass Barrel saddles.

It's a vintage looking guitar with a cool vibe - the black pickguard makes it look quite awesome I think!

I have an older Standard Telecaster, but if you are looking for a good Tele for not much money, I'd say get this one. Many people think it's as good or better than the Mexican Fender Telecasters, so I would recommend trying both and see what you think. It sure isn't a big investment, so I would highly recommend the Classic Vibe guitars from Squier to anyone looking for an old-school type of guitar with high quality for low dollars. Great sound, fantastic value, great vintage look. What else would you want?
