Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s [2008-2018]Published on 06/19/12 at 23:58
The Squier Strat Vibe Series is an affordable guitar that is vintage style that’s why it says 60’s. I am pretty sure that it comes in a few different color tones if I remember correctly though I have used the same that that is pictured. With the Chrome hardware and a complete vintage type of style it is sure to have your friends and family and fellow musicians in complete shock. Just by the look of it looks like you paid a fortune for it and in fact it really doesn’t cost as much as it looks. And not in a cheap way either, most companies try to make something look better than it actually is, this Strat actually looks great and sounds just a great if not better.

UTILIZATION

I have been using Strats off and on for years and years now. I have even done a few small gigs with the Squier Vibe Series. For some reason when I ordered it online a while back, it took over a week to get and the suspense was killing me, then when I got it, there was a huge scratch on the front body panel of the guitar. Nothing else looked bad at all, but that scratch had me upset because I paid for something new and I get a scratched unit. They offered to refund me a portion of the or I could send it back or take it into the local GC. So I just took it in the local GC even though I had to drive 2 hours to get there and they had one in stock and just replaced it for me easy on the spot. It really was great customer service for a great guitar.


SOUNDS

sounds amazing

OVERALL OPINION

For the price of this guitar and for what it sounds like you really can beat what you are going to get. The Squier Classic Vibe series has really shown me how to appreciate my guitars and appreciate music all together. Its well built and I love it.

I have been playing the guitar for about five years.

I bought this guitar new at Guitar Center for about $350, but I have gotten better and bought a Gibson SG, but this is a fantastic beginner's guitar. I bought it because I loved Squiers, and when I first saw this guitar, it made all the other beginner guitars on the wall look cheap (Other Squiers and Epiphones etc.).

The tone of this guitar is good. For a Squier, it's amazing! The guitar felt great at the time, but I like that Gibson and Epiphone feel more, because it has a fatter neck, which is my preference, but it feels fantastic for Fender and Squier lovers. The electronics are solid, and the guitar is easy to play.

There are a couple things I don't like about this guitar. When I purchased this guitar and brought it back home, it needed a setup. The E, A and G string were buzzing and were always getting out of tune when I bended them and played chords with the guitar. Also, when you first buy the guitar, the strings need to be replaced with better ones, because the standard ones are not so great.

For a Squier, the quality of this guitar is unheard of. It is made with decent materials. The pieces fit together pretty well, but one of the knobs fell off a week after I played the guitar. I would worry a bit if I dropped this guitar. but not too much. The wood is awesome quality for a Squier!

Great guitar for the money, a beginner's dream. It was worth the money, and good value. Change the strings when you first buy the guitar, and a setup!

This guitar is great. I bought it on sale for $150 canadian at a Tom Lee Music Store. I used to play acoustic, but always played songs by bands that used usually an electric guitars (Rush, The Cult, Duran Duran,those bands). It was the last one there, and obviously due to the low price and great quality.

What I like about it was everything. It has great sound, and a great stylish look (different from the regular strat body)The black head compliments the crimson body and dot pearloid inlays. It stays in tune pretty good, and I rarely have to tune it. It has 4 tuning knobs, 2 volumes and 2 tones each for the different pick ups. Oh yes....... The pickups. 2 dual humbucking pickups, each...…

It stays in tune pretty good, and I rarely have to tune it. It has 4 tuning knobs, 2 volumes and 2 tones each for the different pick ups. Oh yes....... The pickups. 2 dual humbucking pickups, each with there own individual tone and volume knobs, and a 3 way toggle, position 1 being for the bridge pickup, position 2 for the neck and bridge pick up, and position 3 for the neck pickup. *Great Guitar*

There is nothing about it that I don't like, except for the strings that came with it. They snapped very quickly, but I guess every guitar needs a string change after a while.

The durability of it is great. I had a party at my house recently and some little kids got into my room. I guess one of them thought he was a rockstar, picked it up, pretended to play it, and dropped it. Hearing the huge bang, I ran into my room to find it lying flat on the ground, the strings vibrating, and a dent in the hardwood floor. Surprisingly, there wasn't a dent not even a scratch in the body. I guess you could say that it is quite sturdy and durable.

All I have to say is if you like to yank on your strings when you play, change them or keep an extra set of strings and a power winder with you when playing it..An amazing guitar for the price I paid, and if you like a guitar with great sound and a great look, get this guitar and get ready for some serious rocking.

Great value for money

Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s [2008-2018]Published on 12/30/11 at 06:45
The Squier Classic Vibe '60s Stratocaster is yet another model from Squier's recent Classic Vibe series that has been such a hit with musicians since its inception. It basically is a reissue of a mid sixties Fender Strat with great quality, but built to a very attractive price point. Like the original Fender, it features an alder body, maple neck with rosewood fretboard, and smaller vintage frets (the neck is a 21 fretter). The tuners are standard closed models, the bridge is a standard 6 screw fulcrum point model, and the pickups are made by Tonerider for Squier. It has the standard volume/tone/tone/pickup selector layout of most Strats too. Squier produces in various factories overseas...…

The tuners are standard closed models, the bridge is a standard 6 screw fulcrum point model, and the pickups are made by Tonerider for Squier. It has the standard volume/tone/tone/pickup selector layout of most Strats too. Squier produces in various factories overseas so you can find guitars built in China, Indonesia, or maybe even other places too.

UTILIZATION

The design of this guitar is reasonably ergonomic for a Strat. The original Fender models of that time had more sleek contouring and were generally lighter guitars and this one follows those ethos quite well. It's reasonably light itself and sits on the body quite well for my liking. It's not quite as sleek as an original '60s model Fender from my experience, but for the price one can't be too picky. The upper fret access is decent, though there is only 21 frets, and the blocky neck heel can impede pure shredding somewhat, but most Strat players find a way to adapt.

Getting a good tone out of this guitar isn't difficult. Much like the other Classic Vibe Strats, this one is made of decent quality wood, and the Tonerider pickups are a diamond in the rough. Dialing in the tones are pretty easy overall. I find the only real issue is the quality of the controls used, which affects the roll-off and other things that control dynamics in a Strat. All in all though it's pretty easy.

SOUNDS

This guitar seems to sound best with a more vintage voiced tone to my ears. The pickups are lower output and the tones are pretty mild when compared to some more modern sounding guitars. Using a clean amp like a Fender is great for blues, country or some more artist specific clean tones by guys like Hendrix and Knopfler. The stock pickups have a nice responsiveness and attack and I'm quite impressed with their bright nature coupled with the darker alder/rosewood combo wood wise. Switching over to a drive channel brings in some nice bright rock tones that are gritty yet have a wonderful Stratty snap to them. SRV type tones come with ease, or you can do some great classic rock as well. The pickups do get noisy when hit with a ton of gain and they can also be kinda thin in that department so it's less ideal for modern rock or shred.



OVERALL OPINION

All in all I think the Squier Classic Vibe '60s Strat is a great deal for someone looking for an affordable vintage style Strat that plays great, sounds great and is priced great. At about $350 new, it's hard to find this kind of value in anything else out there, and given Squier's increased quality control as of late, they're much more consistent than the guitars of older times. Definitely give this one a whirl!
