Classic vibe with modern refinements.

The Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s is an electric guitar that leaves no doubt as to its true Fender identity. With its cool finishes on an alder body and 21-fret vintage tint gloss maple neck, this beauty definitely has that '50s vibe. But you also get the modern playability of a 9.5" radius neck and medium jumbo frets. The tone is unmistakable as well, with a custom set of AlNiCo 3 single-coil pickups. This Squier guitar's tone is clear and bright with terrific sustain even in crunch mode! Custom-staggered pole pieces provide improved string-to-string balance.

Classic Vibe!
Back in 1982, the very first Squier by Fender guitars and basses came ringing out of Asia. Known for their excellent vintage-quality look, feel, sound and construction, those early Squier instruments and their Fender branded counterparts are now highly sought-after collector's items revered by guitar enthusiasts as models of "getting it right" while aiming at value-conscious players. The Squier Classic Vibe Series reflects that simultaneous commitment to excellence, value and vibe. Mirroring classic Fender designs, the Classic Vibe offering is not intended to be era or vintage correct-but rather imparting the vibe of a classic Fender design. Each has a distinctive feature set combinations- adding up to one classic looking instrument. Great sound, vintage looks, unbeatable value-Classic Vibe!

Fender Squier 50's Classic Vibe = Very sweet guitar, very nice price!!!


from MN

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s Electric Guitar:

I can honestly say this guitar has surpassed all my expectations. It has all of the important factors of a great looking and playing electric guitar and yet at a very nice price. First off, the guitar was shipped quickly from Music123 and was almost set-up perfectly right out of the box. The neck plays great and fast, the pickups are superb for many styles of music and offer a nice unique strat tone, and just the overall quality from the looks to the build of these Strats is top notch. I can't find any negatives about this guitar. I have the Olympic White color which is very sharp and I bet the other two colors are just as nice!

The Fender You Remember


from pittsburgh

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s Electric Guitar:

When I first heard about the buzz on these I was skeptical. After-all, I bought a different low priced big F product before and was disappointed. But not here. This guitar is everything it claims to be and more. A real throwback to the 50's. Alnico III pickups sound fantastic, neck has a nice coat of gloss/shine and plays like a dream, tuners stay in tune, finish is gorgeous, etc. It is everything I remember about picking up a Fender before they got too modern. I love the Fender chime and its all there. I still pick it up and wonder how they did it. I have 2 other Fenders that don't even compare. Don't let the Squier sticker fool you. This is a quality instrument at a beginners price. Go get one now before they wise up and are discontinued.

OO WEEE OOO I Look Just Like Buddy Holly


from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s Electric Guitar:

But sound more like Mark Knopfler or Hendrix. The gloss coat on the neck takes some getting used to but this baby is a player! Stock it totally rocks, does everything a Strat should do. This is the first Strat I've played that I didn't immediately want to chuck the bridge p/u due to ice-pickiness. Really sweet 2-tone sunburst on 3-pc alder body, period-correct 8-hole single ply pickguard. Great fretwork, no sproutage like you find on other guitars in this price range. Pickups sound great on all positions. BUY THIS GUITAR. You won't be sorry.
