Product Description

The Squier Classic Vibe ’50s Telecaster in butterscotch blonde delivers an original promise. Setting this guitar apart from the Classic Vibe ’50s Telecaster in vintage blonde, is a custom set of alnico 5 single-coil pickups that provide warmth and clarity and enough punch for country, blues, rock and jazz. The Telecaster quickly became an everyman’s guitar in the 1950s because of its versatile sound, ease of playing and reasonable cost.

The Classic Vibe '50s Telecaster features include a gorgeous butterscotch blonde finish on a pine body, and a vintage-tint gloss fast-action maple neck with 21 medium-jumbo frets and modern 9.5 inch fretboard radius.

Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster 50s = Raw and in your face Tele sound
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I have this and a Mexico 2013 Tele, and although the Mexican has a more refined tone, sometimes with Rock and Blues you might not want that. The sound from this guitar is very different than the Mexican, I find when I play through a solid state amp the Squier chords are more raw and individual strings are noticeable, and the Mexican blends the notes better. I plan on using one guitar in standard tuning, and the other in alternate tuning but have not decided yet. I don't think if I had to choose between the two I could-I want both.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I saw some minor issues with the wood. The wood is pine, and I had a small green knot on the side of the guitar. With a clear coat finish this is not a nice thing to see.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The overall design is similar to the Mexican with the exceptions being brass saddles, and gloss on the back of the neck on the Squier.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
I think the tone of this guitar is more suitable to overdrive than the Mexican for rock and blues lead. However, the Mexican would work real well as a rhythm guitar.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish of the guitar is very good-just wish they could have sanded or stained that green knot away.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
The Squier is $100 less than the Mexican, and both can be had for about the same price as the American Standard. It is just a matter of budget for people.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Out of the box, the action was very high, also, the brass saddle screws protruded through the strings and interfered with playing over the bridge pickup somewhat. I tried to lower it, but quickly had fret buzz so I could not lower as much as I wanted without truss rod adjustment.
