Product Description

For the first time ever, Squier introduces a Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom guitar with a 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.

Other great features include a "C"-shaped maple neck with vintage-tint gloss finish, 9.5-inch radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and black dot position inlays, three-way toggle pickup switching, four black skirted amp knobs (two volume, two tone), string-through-body bridge with three chrome barrel saddles, and vintage-style chrome tuners. Available in Black and Three-color Sunburst.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Squier products.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A+ Quality and Value"
Sound: It sounds like a Tele should, every bit as good as my Japanese Custom sounded. The Duncan designed bridge pickup nails it. Feature: I love Telecasters, and this guitar delivers the Tele sound with the versatility of a Les Paul's tone and volume controls. The tone nobs are very useful and give you a very useable tone gradient. Ease of Use: It is obvious that care was taken by the designers to provide quality, useable tone circuitry. After setting up the guitar it is very playable. The neck looks and feels nice. Quality: The guitar looks beautiful, and seems to be made of quality woods and components. There is nothing on this guitar that looks flimsy or like it will break any time soon. The only problem with the guitar was the high 3rd fret. If increased quality control in this area meant higher prices, I think I would choose the DIY fret job option. Value: I don't know how they made a guitar of this quality with a price this low. I hope the factory workers are happy. Maybe I'll visit Indonesia sometime and talk to one of them. I'll get some clove cigarettes too. Manufacturer Support: I did not try to contact the company. The Wow Factor: Of course I could make good music without it, but I love the concept of offering tried and true classic designs for very reasonable prices. If this were my only guitar, it would be a very useful versatile musical tool. It's a great looking, great sounding instrument that has brought Squier up in my estimation as a brand. Overall: A few years back my Japanese Tele Custom was stolen and I've been pining for a replacement ever since. I was very impressed with the Vintage Modified Jaguar that Squier put out, so when I saw that they had one of these I snapped it right up. It really is like having my old friend back! Another shout out to whoever is responsible for the vintage modified series. Great quality, great pickups, just be prepared to do a set up. If you're an experienced player you'll want it set up, and (IMO) should know how to do one. If you're not an experienced player it won't matter so much, but if it does, it's time to learn how to set up your guitar; (intonation, truss, & action) it's all over youtube. It should be said though that after I adjusted the intonation, truss, and action I needed to level the frets and take down the nut a bit, which is not a job for the beginner. If i didn't know how to do it myself, I would have sent it back and tried my luck with another one because it's such a nice guitar. I'd like to believe that the high 3rd fret was a fluke. I'll give it 4 stars because of the high fret.
