The Fender Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster delivers the feel and classic twangy tones of a vintage-era Telecaster, at a price comfortable enough for a beginner or first-time Tele buyer.

A Classic Shape

The Fender Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster follows the form of the original 1950s-era Telecaster, with an all-pine body under a light and shiny polyester finish. The light top is accented by a 1-ply black plastic pickguard. The maple neck contrasts nicely with the body, finished in a distinct vintage-tint gloss. The fingerboard is light maple and is set with 21 medium-jumbo frets. The neck shape itself is a slimmer, more contemporary C shape with a 9.5-inch fingerboard radius. The guitar is 1.625 inches wide at the nut. The overall guitar's scale length is 25 1/2 inches.

Vintage-style Pickups for Classic Tone

The Fender Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster is set with two custom vintage-style single-coil Tele pickups with alnico 5 magnets in the neck and bridge positions. A 3-position blade with barrel switch tip allows you to move between bridge, neck, and combined positions to explore different tones. Vintage-style knurled chrome Master Volume and Master Tone knobs fit comfortably under the hand.

Classic Hardware

The bridge is a vintage-style strings-thru-body Telecaster design with 3 brass barrel saddles. The nut is made of synthetic bone. The bright chrome tuning knobs finish off the fine vintage detailing on this instrument.

Features:

- All-Pine body
- Light polyester finish
- C-shape Maple Neck
- 1-ply black plastic pickguard
- Knurled Chrome Control Knobs
- Vintage Tinted Neck
- Black Dot Position Inlays
- Gold Squier Logo
- Original Barrel Switch Tip

Need some motivation to pick up that guitar and practice? With its vintage-tint gloss-maple neck and old-school black pickguard, this cool-looking Telecaster is all the inspiration you need. And with Alnico 5 pickups, vintage-style tuners and a string-thru-body bridge, this affordable Tele is about more than looks -- it's a great-sounding, easy-playing instrument with plenty of bite and bark.

Product Description

Squier's Classic Vibe Telecaster '50s puts classic "blackguard" Telecaster vibe into a gorgeous Vintage Blonde-finished pine-body guitar -- you'll be hard-pressed to tell whether or not you are holding a premium ash-body instrument. The vintage-tint gloss-maple neck has a maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets and a modern 9.5 inch radius. Distinctive Telecaster tone rings from the custom single-coil pickups -- giving clear note separation even when distorted, strong midrange dynamic response and plenty of solo high-end bite.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (33 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Totally floored!!! It's a Squier!!!???"
Sound: This guitar sounds really great. If you're looking for that true "tele" sound, this guitar will definitely not disappoint. I was expecting the single-coil pickups to be noisy while playing through my distortion pedal (Fulltone Full drive 2) but the buzzing was very very minimal. Country, blues, rock, this guitar sounds great in all situations. Feature: The glossy neck is straight as an arrow. It's a seriously beautifully made and good looking guitar. Ease of Use: Plays excellent. The action and fret height was great right out of the box. No fret buzz what so ever. Quality: Cosmetically superb. I am surprised this is a Squier. I will totally take this on the road. I played it for 3 hours today and it barely went out of tune. The tuners are very decent and seem very durable. Value: GREAT bang for the buck. I would choose this over a MIM Tele any day of the week. The Wow Factor: Super sexy! I love seeing the wood grain through the finish. Overall: I expect to be satisfied with this for a very long time. If this were lost or stolen a would buy another one just like it right away. I have no complaints whatsoever.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wow, I didn't believe the hype, but man, what a guitar!"
Overall: Wow, that is the only word I can muster. Long story short, I've been playing 30yrs and all manner of American and Mexican Fenders and USA Gibson's and this is the best bang for the buck for a guitar I've ever seen, and could easily cost double for the quality. Neck needed a little truss adjustment, a little spray helped a stiff knob. The pickups are awesome and QUIET, much quieter than any other stock single coil guitar I've ever purchased, I normally gut a Fender and get some noisless etc, but surprisingly these are incredibly tame and I play with gain and not brittle at all and very smooth. I have the Blonde with the Alnico III's,(smooth, warm) the Butterscotch has Alnico V's (snappier, brighter). I'm going to buy the Butterscotch as soon as I can before these are not around anymore!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
