Classic Tele Twang on a Budget

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.

Squier Classic Vibe 50s Telecaster

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 (51 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Just can't stop playing this guitar"
Overall: Just recieved this guitar a few days ago, and I can't put it down. I know there are many positive reviews, and I have never written a review for a guitar before. To qualify that I have been playing guitar since 1969, I have been everything from studio musician to wedding band player. I have preformed live a many famous names from the past. I currently still gig, sing and front my current band. I own many high end expensive fender guitars, and never thought to review one of them. This guitar is different, it out preforms many of my far more expensive guitars. The only thing i did was to take some relief out of the neck, and set up action the way I like it, I am amazed. Fit and finish is near perfect, frets feel like the just came out of the shop, body weight and size is just to 1950 spec. If you didn't think it could get better, the pickups out preform my 52 reissue. Hurry up and by one before fender realizes they made a mistake, and don't worry about name on headstock. I am so jealous of young players today, a cheap guitar when i started playing would mean bloody finger tips.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. " I NEVER leave reviews but.........."
Overall: This is a fine Telecaster. I have owned over 135 guitars. Name brand good guitars. When I started the sell off... I ended up keeping 2 USA Strats, 2 USA Teles and 2 Custom ship 58 Les Paul's "R" reissue VOS. All three awesome guitars. But, after reading (for years) the reviews on this CV Tele I bit the bullet and boy, am I glad I did. After a 5 minute set up and am near overwhelmed at this Tele. I am not going to change a thing, just play the crap out of it. Playing it through a Blues Jr. III and my Fudge Brownie Deluxe Reverb. I could not be happier with this guitar. Buy one before they are gone.
