Although considered a budget/beginner range don't let that fool you into thinking that these guitars aren't serious machines. Squier guitars work just as well for touring musicians as they do for the newbie and the Classic Vibe 70s is no exception, combining vintage aesthetic with modern features to make a guitar that emanates style and tone in equal measure.
Classic Looks, Modern Spec
The Telecaster was the first commercially successful solid-body guitar and such a fantastic piece of design that little has changed since it's inception. The Classic Vibe 70s Tele has a Poplar body, giving it a balanced and full-bodied tone. Poplar is well known for being one the most versatile tonewoods, so whether you want to play rock, country, blues or even heavy metal this guitar can handle it all.
A maple, 'C' shape neck gives a playing comfortability that handles double stop bends or shred scale runs in equal measure. The Maple fingerboard lets your hands glide easily over the neck with precision and the comfortable 9.5-inch radius lets you play with aplomb. With 21 narrow tall frets, you're assured of hitting every note and the black dot inlays ensure you never lose your way.
Powerful Electronics, Reliable Hardware
The Squier Classic Vibe 70s Tele features a Fender Designed Alnico Single-Coil Tele pickup in the neck which gives you plenty of the classic Tele treble twang.

With this combination of pickups, you'll find the Classic Vibe 70s Tele equally capable of handling harder rock styles as well as country, jazz and blues guitar, making for one versatile machine. With a three-way pickup selector and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup, the sound you're looking for is never too far away.
A 3-Saddle, Vintage-Style, strings-through-body bridge gives you rock-solid intonation and plenty of options for customisation, whether you want to set-up for big country bends or fast riffing and soloing.
