"Classic Vibe Telecaster"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this guitar a little over 6 months ago. It was the best purchase I have made in terms of my guitar rig.
I wouldn't change the pickups, pots, or anything, it is amazing. It can be a little too bright for certain things, but that is why you have a tone knob. This is honestly my favorite guitar to play, it is so versatile. I play through a Bugera V22 with a Keeley Mod Blues Driver, OCD, and a Fulldrive 2 for my overdriven tones and I love it. Has an awesome clean sound also and great for almost anything I would play other than maybe metal. I love this more than my Mexican Strat that I own and my friends American Telecaster, just something about the feel of it. I play mainly a mix between John Mayer Trio, G Love and Special Sauce, Jack Johnson, some Foo Fighters, Hillsong, David Crowder Band, and so much more. Whether I'm gigging with my band or playing at church, this thing can cover whatever I need.
Single Coils are the way to go for my playing style and it stays in tune extremely well.
Ease of Use
Pretty self explanatory, every pickup sounds good out of the box, just pick a sound you want and play. Changing strings is a little different, but not difficult.
It is a really solid guitar and beautiful. The only complaint I have is the strap button near the neck stripped out. I was easily able to fix it with some wood glue and toothpicks and haven't had a problem since. Other than that everything seems very high quality.
YES! For under $400 I have guitar that I feel is just as good as guitars 2 to 3x as expensive.
I have not had to deal with Fender or Squier because I have not had any issues other than the strap button which was an easy fix.
The Wow Factor
Squier got this one right. This isn't a starter pack guitar that you buy your kid who you think might like a guitar for Christmas. I am in a band that plays around a little bit and we have done a few shows with 1000+ people and I have never thought I wish I had a better guitar so I could sound better for these people. I am completely happy with this purchase.
10+ years. I play guitar, piano, drums, vocals. I would say I am semi professional I guess.
Rock, Pop, Christian, Reggae, Surf, Alternative, Bluegrass, Folk, etc.
