The Telecaster is the iconic electric guitar of all time. The first commercially successful electric guitar has since spawned imitators of all varying degrees of success but none surpasses the simple brilliance of the Telecaster design. The Squier Classic Vibe is a throwback to the design of the 50s, 60s and 70s but with modern electronics and construction. The Squier range of guitars share many characteristics with their much more expensive Fender cousins and are used by professional and beginner guitarists alike.
Semi Hollow mahogany tone
The Classic Vibe Thinline body is made from Nato, Nato is from the Mora species of trees and has qualities very similar to Mahogany but with a more striking grain and colour. The semi-hollow nature means that the natural tendency for warmer fatter tones from the Nato will be balanced by a wonderful harmonic resonance from the hollow upper portion of the guitar. The neck and fingerboard are made from Maple and has narrow tall frets and is ideal for smooth quick playing. The neck is also bolt-on which aids sustain and married with the semi-hollow body sounds outstanding.
Fender made Alnico single coil pickups
The juice of the Telecaster is poured from the searing hot single coils. Giving that rich crisp attack at the bridge and the warm bubbly response at the neck the Classic Vibe is a tone monster for a fraction of the cost of a Fender deluxe but with many shared features. The Fender designed Alnico single coils provide that unique Fender only tone and balance while having the range to cover most genres.
360 degrees of versatility
The Fender Classic Vibe 60s Telecaster Thinline is an authentic re-voicing of the 60s Thinline Telecasters, with nickel tuners and bridge providing stability and accuracy in tuning the Classic Vibe is a gig ready, studio-friendly professional or beginner instrument. Made with high-end features at a budget price this is a great guitar and as with all Fender guitars will stand the test of time.
