Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom Laurel Fingerboard 3-Color Sunburst
The Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom in 3-Tone Sunburst takes design features and tonal inspiration from vintage instruments and combines this with a modern playability that will make today's guitarists feel right at home. This guitar features everything you need to get the complete Telecaster experience, from the iconic single cutaway alder body to the vintage-styled bridge and dual pickup design. The Classic Vibe Telecaster is loaded with two custom alnico V single-coil pickups which are vintage-inspired, giving a warm sound with enough clarity and punch to cover country, rock, blues, funk, and even jazz. The pickups are mounted to a classy-looking double-bound alder body, and this combination produces the iconic and versatile sounds of the Telecaster. The guitar is 'modernised' with a modern "C" profile maple neck, modern 9.5'' radius laurel fingerboard, and 21 medium jumbo frets. These specifications ensure that, while the guitar may look and sound like a closet classic instrument, it will keep up with any contemporary guitar and deliver a smooth and comfortable playing experience. If you're seeking a great-value guitar to cover a multitude of genres, the Classic Vibe Custom Telecaster features all the vintage-inspired tones and aesthetics that guitarists know and love.
The Squier Classic Vibe Custom Telecaster features all the iconic design features of the Telecaster family - one of Leo Fender's first ever solid body electric guitar designs. While it has a strong heritage in country music, the Telecaster has made an appearance in almost all genres of popular music, ranging from the cleanest of jazz styles to the heaviest of metal. The Telecaster's adaptability and workhorse-like reliability has made it a staple instrument in any guitarist's collection, and one which has a truly unique voice. The Classic Vibe Telecaster takes the early vintage Telecaster as its guide point, both tonally and aesthetically. This is combined with a modern playing feel, giving you an ideal blend of old and new for the authentic Telecaster experience.
The Bullet Telecaster is crafted with a traditional alder body; a versatile and lightweight tonewood chosen for its brightness and resonance. The body is double-bound and finished with a wonderfully deep 3-tone sunburst, combining to deliver a thoroughly classy aesthetic. The neck is made of maple and topped with a laurel fingerboard which provides a bright resonance. The neck has a vintage-tint which complements with the mint-green pickguard to give an authentic vintage look.
The neck has a comfortable "Modern C" profile that sits easily in the left hand and gives a fast playing feel. The fingerboard has a 9.5'' radius which is flatter than vintage designs (around 7'') to provide enhanced playability, especially when playing solo techniques. The Telecaster's single cutaway body enables access to the top of the fingerboard for high-range solos, while the iconic contours make it a comfortable instrument to play whether sat down or stood up.
The Classic Vibe Custom Telecaster is loaded with dual custom single-coil pickups with alnico V magnets. This gives you the choice between classic bright bridge-position tones and mellow neck-position sounds. The pickups are wired to a 3-way pickup selector and single volume and tone controls. This deceptively simple layout is partly why the Telecaster is so versatile; it allows you just enough control to radically change your sound and combines with the resonant body and bridge to give you a huge range of sounds, from low-gain clean tones to high-gain rock sounds. This vintage-inspired instrument is perfect for country, blues, jazz, rock, and more.
A vintage-style 3-saddle bridge and string-thru body design gives the Classic Vibe Telecaster its iconic Telecaster tones. This bridge design creates enhanced string vibration transfer along with a bright and resonant tonality that has been exploited by country, rock and blues players for decades. The fixed bridge design is also inherently more stable than a tremolo unit and creates reliable tuning during longer playing sessions. The Telecaster's simple nature is what makes it a renowned workhorse instrument, covering a multitude of genres and delivering a reliable performance night after night.
