A celebration of the birth of the Tele[reg] in the early 1950s, the Classic Vibe '50s Telecaster creates incredible tone courtesy of the Fender-designed alnico single-coil pickups. Player-friendly features include a slim, comfortable "C"-shaped neck profile with an easy-playing 9.5"-radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets, as well as a vintage-style Telecaster bridge with barrel saddles and string-through-body design. This throwback Squier model also features 1950s-inspired headstock markings, rich-looking nickel-plated hardware and a slick vintage-tint gloss neck finish for an old-school vibe.

Perfect setup, quality is as good as the American made version. They only need to make the back of neck a satin finish.

Just got it at the local L&M. Wow. If it doesn't melt you with it's jaw dropping good looks, it will when you play it. It sounds and plays good. Feels extremely solid, even more than my Gibson Les Paul. Little sticky until you get used to it when you get it home, and then it begins to shine. If I was stuck on a remote island and could only have one guitar for the rest of my life, it would be a Telecaster. And this one is the best deal I've seen. Highly recommended.

As someone who favours the Telecaster for live performance, I needed to get a backup Telecaster for my main Telecaster (a modded 2006 Fender.) Although the classic vibe may sometimes be positioned as a beginner's guitar, it can just as easily serve as a pro's backup for a few reasons. The barrel saddles and ashtray bridge are a vintage feature, and add to the spank of this guitar's sound. The Alnico magnets have a bit of bite and traditional vintage tone, with a lot of character (this guitar sounds much more traditional than the SCN pickups in my main Tele.) The neck is a modern neck, and this guitar did not feel any different in my hands, despite the vintage tuners and saddles. She has a fast neck with a modern curve. The finish is a lovely butterscotch pine not too deeply embedded in polyurethane, and due to being pine, she's not too heavy. This guitar sounds great, feels great, and plays great. She's a fine addition to the collection of a musician at any point on their journey.

I'm blown away by how good this guitar is, Played a USA tele and a few others to make sure it's didn't get better. Felt better and sounded better to me than all the fenders I tried that day. I had to have it, a month later and I'm still in love with this Guitar.
