Product Description

The rough-and-tumble Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s evokes that musically adventurous decade, with a few modern features added. The alder body has a three-color Sunburst finish, the '60s vintage-tint gloss-maple neck has a rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets and a modern 9.5-inch radius. The thick tone comes from the alnico V single-coil pickups -- quick attack with a bit more midrange force and a knockout bridge pickup. Custom staggered polepieces provide improved string-to-string balance.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Squier products.

zZounds Expert Review
This is an awesome guitar with an awesome price tag too. The Squier Classic Vibe '60s Strat has your familiar Fender Stratocaster features, look, and feel at a more affordable price point. Perfect for beginners and advanced players alike, this guitar is a great value and plays like a guitar that is much more expensive. Don't be afraid to pick one up and give it a try -- you just might love it!

- Justin, zZounds Guitar Expert

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (20 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wow! Great value and stunning quality for the price."
Sound: I have been playing since before Woodstock (the first one) and I have played practically every vintage and collector's model Fender over those years. I currently have a '60s Telecaster (an original, not a reissue) and an Eric Johnson strat. This 60's Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster plays and sounds better than the Tele, and sounds as good (OK, in a different way) and plays very nearly as well as the EJ for a fraction of the price. To be honest, I since I bought the guitar, I play it all of the time and the other two Fenders are sleeping peacefully in their cases. Feature: The neck is not exactly like the EJ Strat, which I love, but reminds me more of my '62 Jazzmaster than any guitar that I have ever played. The CV Squier Strat stays in tune for days at a time and is a pleasure to pick up and play. Say what you want about crafted in China guitars, but the finish on this Strat would put any 70s-80s Fender to shame--it is flawless. Ease of Use: The CV Squier has a very interesting crunchy sound that is much more powerful and full than the original 50s and 60s Strats. Quality: I am in awe of the quality in this guitar--for any price. Value: Seriously? I challenge anyone to find a better value on the market today. Manufacturer Support: I have not needed support. However, Fender has been very responsive to my inquiries and requests in the past. The Wow Factor: It a beautifully rendered example of classic Fender styling. Overall: I am thinking of selling off my other Fenders and keeping this one, and maybe a Classic Vibe Tele.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Super Value, super tone"
Overall: Over the years I've owned a Fender Tele 62 reissue, two MIJ Strats, a MIM Strat, a LP and a hand full of Carvins. Honestly, the Squire Classic Vibe '60s easily holds it's own with them for a fraction of the price. Mine looks like it came straight from the factory with no second party setup. But that was no problem - action was butter smooth. After a couple of days I had to adjust the truss as the guitar settled into my heat and humidity.The build is top notch - finish is flawless, very nice fret work (no sharp ends), nice rosewood. And the tone - oh man, that tone is marvelous. I'm not one for the brittle brightness that some Strats can have on the bridge PU. This one has nice gutsy bright tones that are quite usable. And the warmer clean tones with the center and neck PUs are vintage 60's Strat all the way. Add a little distortion into the mix and you have some really satisfying blues, rock and fusion - an extremely wide range of sounds to work with.All the positive reviews are not hype - this is a tremendous guitar, and an absolute steal for $355. I'd buy another in a second if I lost this one.
