Squier Classic Vibe Series: The Test

Squier has been making low-cost guitars based on Fender designs since 1982. Because their early guitars have now become collector items for some, Squier is seeking to regain some of that magic with their Classic Vibe Series. This latest series was launched to capture the "vibe" of classic Fender designs as opposed to trying to be exact reproductions of vintage models. Read more…

    Do clean, crunchy and distorted sounds adapt well to different microphone positions? Are the guitar's different frequencies and sounds well-balanced?

    UTILIZATION

    -A remarkable handle on 9.5 radius and excellent frets. If in 10 years, he twisted I will change even if costing 200 E. This will tell you if I love this guitar.
    Ergonomics, access to acute, shape and weight of a telecast. Though set of all 'so it's super simple. A little "cheap" equipment? R / E / S. tighten a little jack with a small 'taste' of "Loctite and inter washer." Mechanical hold well play an evening, although somewhat sensitive to humidity. At rest, storing vertical.
    -Because of their low prices, not to say ridiculous, as often in the mag there was a whole "slew" of "and EPIPHONE FENDER". In the wholesale cost could afford (it sure it was not Gibson 70 'or 90 Fender'). So I have to try several combo with "Fender buttocks" and "Marshall" when my choice is tightening around this "BUTTERSCOTCH / blonde." The pickups were a "bold" little more than the other vibe. The knobs?? noticed nothing, insignificant buzz and a small "sustain" not "degu" to handle 4 screws ... I was really impressed!. Compared with my other 2 FENDER Telecaster I prefer the VIBE. Suddenly a few months later I could not resist I "made" the "VIBE STRATOCASTER 50s" terrible!

    SOUNDS

    Yes, it matches my style and a style "well Telecaster twang, slamming statement." "And no offense to" charlots ", do not forget, it was!, And it must remain" the Guitar poor "!.
    Ho!! Lack potato ... Ho! Microphones microphones that this ... HO! That is not ash ...
    -The Tone? microphones? What is this?? you know what it's Vintage?? and its "single pass" 50s??. "A" solidbody "is a board, a round covered and microphones" dixit ... Leo!
    It is incisive, this is cutting edge is so rustic .... "ROOTS" Blues and rock ... hell!
    Now in use, I often sticks to one of my combo's or VOX amps, Fender, The valve, Soldano or Mesa and peti Marshall, sure they were in the "safe" but simplified adjustment without forgetting the unique TS / 9. At low volume it s'pass' on a small combo transistor modeling and there is something fun ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    -Used often for almost their outputs in 2008 / / 2009 this time she did not suffer. And .... with respect to retissants and to not dwell, I apologize for SQUIER, you simply keep "FENDER" on the butt and we'll talk ....
    He may be is a small joke but this "TELECASTER" is in terms of equal quality to Fender's '60s and early 70.Pas only province ... but in the 60s ... my Happy 15 years ... I have not forgotten that finding an amp and an electric often "Med in U.S.", reported to the obstacle course, not many European few Jap's is all ... very expensive .. . often we manufactured ourselves and the issue amp an old radio "nasal postwar" repaired "this is ... this is ... this is ALL!".
    Let me tell you, when we crossed a one did the "choosy" ..... So the handle .... The body ... all the pickups wound by hand some real horror which exported to Europe. celons ... tell them of the time ...
    THEN ... you know with this VIBE would have been the FEET! And "m *** e! It is EXCELLENT!!.

    I had a big "a priori" the pin on a TELECASTER, but it takes a little review its judgment. Why this wood would it not good for for that? Why Squier would use the wrong bread stabilized risk to deform? which would ruin the image of the Fender brand as their own.

    UTILIZATION

    Nice handle with well finished on the side that does not pick half of the hand when one slides several boxes frets.

    3.8 Kgs compared to my back musclor okay, or stomach or chamfer cutting for the elbow but it is not for nothing TELE. and then nothing really rude either

    Access to the upper frets not complain, I have big hands and am not a virtuoso solo in small boxes so everything is fine

    The selector is doing its job for the selection of microphones and knobs are solid. By against the log is not my thing. I think from 4 or 5 out of 10 means little or nothing more.

    SOUNDS

    I who love Sheryl Crow and Rolling Stones (among others) I sound I wanted for that.

    It can be slightly fat, twangy and punchy and also crystalline.

    For the moment I plugged directly into my marshall 5275 reverb. It gives me a guitar that roots do not really demand a myriad of effects. Maybe a chorus or vibrato on and on ....

    I love all the sounds, but if the neck pickup deserves to be reassembled 2 mm

    9/10 for the neck pickup micro 2mm too low, and wiring that could have been a little better even for a guitar of this range.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Purchased 27 February 2014 its use is recent

    Compared few sisters

    Repeat this choice, for here we must first allow time to tell us how it ages. then we'll see.

    I love everything in it. to really quibble I blame these knobs without graduation to know where we are, but really to quibble, because it may improve for a small hack.

    Chinese shapely, simplicity itself. Standard.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is great, I tried the Fender Telecaster standard that was worth more than double and frankly the handle of the Squier was largely above.

    SOUNDS

    On a small tube amp Laney LC15 is fine. This is not a Swiss Army knife but I prefer to have with his character (especially the bridge pickup) a guitar that can supposedly do everything ... With Nocaster wiring is perfect.

    The Classic Vibe is obviously Chinese.

    And it's a Tele. So something a little Neanderthal!

    See the manufacturer's website for specifications:

    UTILIZATION

    For me rather accustomed to Gibson sleeves and have never been thrilled with the sleeves of all Strat 'I could have on hand, I was very pleasantly surprised by the comfort of feeling game. The handle looks perfect to me!

    The shape makes it very comfortable to wear, although it weighs its weight (body solid pine)

    Access to acute is that of a Telecaster!

    We easily get good sounds. This little Chinese already has the strong character of his great American sisters. The knobs have a good progression.

    We easily get good sounds. This little Chinese already has the strong character of his great American sisters. The knobs have a good progression.

    SOUNDS

    With a Telecaster, you can play (almost) everything. This Squier is no exception to the rule. So it suits my style of music.

    The neck pickup is fat, typical Tele. The micro chevaleta a strong tendency to be very aggressive and scrap. On this microphone, guitar, however in the spirit Tele, even if it has a bit of a caricature of her big sisters. This disadvantage can be mitigated by judicious choice of ropes high percentage of nickel, which adds a bit of heat and reduces the side scrapping of pickup. For example, I equip this guitar with Thomastick Sliders that soothe her a bit outrageous aggression (bridge) and warm micro-neck position ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have not tried other models and have relied on the opinions found on the net. I wanted a Tele without a high budget.

    What I like least: the varnish sleeve which has a small tendency to nab. But regular wiping with a damp micro-fiber lint solve the problem! Another small problem: the nut of the female jack unscrews permanently (read also also, I'm not the only one concerned!). No problem, there is a solution: tighten all well and apply a small brush stroke of nail polish on the junction thread / nut - it is sufficient to block the crew and does not preclude a subsequent voluntary unscrewing.

    Construction, for the price paid is really good: the handle slides alone, frets do not grate ... This Tele holds good agreement (although do not seem mechanical upscale!). The varnish is very well done. Those accustomed to sophisticated and easels ropers do not worry about the "prehistoric" impression left by this equipment on the Vibe! it works very well and helps (maybe?) to its vintage of this beautiful caves.

    The somewhat weak point of this guitar is the pickups. They lack a bit of signal strength (especially the handle which reflects an imbalance with that of the bridge), the single-coil are a bit noisy and pickup scrap too. But it will fit much so! For my part, I equipped Fender Texas Special. Great result! As for the mechanical, they seem a bit cheap, but the agreement is made, so they may agree.

    In conclusion, this Classic Vibe is not a marvel in absolute as it can get much more expensive Fender U.S. factories. But relativity with respect to price, the Squier is a marvel.

    If you do not want to spend a large sum but want a Tele that sounds like a Tele, go ahead without fear, you will not be disappointed. The price / quality ratio is excellent! The only point to check: the sustainability of its qualities after a few years. But less than 400 €, you can change his guitar every 20 years, right?

    Handle with key very nice maple.
    For sounds, you can easily get to find the characteristics of a Telecaster sound.
    Easy access to acute until the 17th case for me after I think it's up to me to keep working to be at home in the bottom of the handle ...
    The guitar is quite heavy, which is a bit annoying after several hours in rehearsal.

    SOUNDS

    I play funk and blues and I'm starting to integrate some plans country my game so this guitar is perfect because we find the famous Telecaster without its difficulties.
    I never play with distortion but only crunch for fat sounds so I can not say.
    I play on a Roland Cube 80w and clean sounds is perfect.
    There is nothing I hate about this guitar sounds offered because I bought it to have a Telecaster so from that point of view I have used!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a month and so far I am very happy because for the price it's a great guitar.
    I have a friend who has a Fender American Deluxe and if we except the level of finish that is far superior to the Fender, I have not found it had an objective justification to over 1000 € difference between the two guitars.
    The value for money is excellent and it is gratifying that for this price you can have a guitar of this quality.
    I definitely do it again this choice because I'm not at all convinced that it is necessary to pay the equivalent of one month's average salary for a good guitar. I believe that nothing can replace the work on the instrument and when it is reliable as is the case with this Squier guitar is really not an obstacle to the expression of the musician.

    SOUNDS

    the original pickups are very good, they fully respect the original sound of the Telecaster 52, they are Tonerider.
    But then, to go further in search of his home, I changed for Fender American Vintage. Are those of the 52 Reissue. Very well finished, they needed naturellemnt this classic vibe 50.
    They are great, but I am disappointed, thinking really find a radical change. My mistake, the original pickups are really close to the fender american vintage. There certainly is a difference, but so little obvious. Nevertheless they are accurate, incisive, very typical vintage as I wanted. The Tonerider not be ashamed, maybe the neck pickup is a less potent hair with a little lack of roundness and warmth.
    Conclusion: Keep your microphone!!

    OVERALL OPINION

    In conclusion, a great series. Moreover, for an amateur musician like me, it is all very well and with a great look and a very low budget.

    Another Chinese manufacturing, but recognize in all honesty they damn progressed.

    The classic vibe series is a must!

Farewell bends beyond a tone because of the radius, the note is muted! Frankly we see here the limits of any vintage at all costs ...

    SOUNDS

    CHANGES MADE:

    It is mainly for this particular point that I write this review. To give you the benefit of my experience with the installation of other mics that those origins. Honestly, they are all at completely honest and sound pretty good. They respect the spirit of the instrument. These are Tone Riders anyway. Recently, I changed to the very classic STL-1 and STR-1 at Seymour Duncan and there my friendz! Depth and purity to fall. The origination microphones tended to nasal side in the upper midrange that certainly may appeal to some, I agree. Now it is purer, crystalline, straighter with deep bass, mids present but not dominant and clear treble and clear. No frequency is predominant, especially on the neck pickup. The pickup of course, is more biting in the midrange (the famous TWANG) but not at the expense of other frequencies. Including remaining present serious and deep. Climbing out the neck pickup from the strings, there is no difference in level between two microphones.

    In the light of the serious micro to me good Blues, Jazz and others. What a sound! The deep bass, clear treble. We want to take notes, to vibrate. There's truly a life of the soul in the sound.
    The intermediate position is interesting because both pickups blend well without predominance of acute microphone. Picking blues to Marcel Dadi or Stefan Grossman makes sense and solos to Danny Gatton in hybrid picking, we believe it.
    The bridge pickup sends all its harmonics and shine in the clear without either aggressive or acidic. As soon as one or the pitcher is saturated, then you shout his joy in the face and your password esgourdes and turn the singing to see angry biting and screaming in the attack that is given to strings. Do not forget that this is a Telecaster on which the frets are placed directly on the handle, it provides a straightforward and clear attack even saturax.
    For information I play mostly in a Fender Super Champ XD amp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I played it for 4 years but now with these new pickups, I never left and I frankly rediscovered this guitar. You understand that I invite you to try it? With these models Pickup or other naturally.

    I would like to acquire the model blond butter scotch and it ride Joe Barden to get closer to the look and sound of the Telecaster my idol Danny Gatton. After, well you have to work the technique he had and then I will have probably some learning his technique phew lives. Too bad he left so early ... RIP DannY

    Telecaster vintage spirit produced in the Middle Kingdom for the Yankees Fender.
    Superb violin, very decent microphones (not noiseless, anyway)
    Love at the first sight ...

    UTILIZATION

    It is heavy, not ergonomic, typing in the micro switch in the middle of a rhythm, there is no vibrato ... in short it is a telecaster and that is why we love in all positions ... selector microphones.

    SOUNDS

    Sound projects you directly into the world of music hairy old. Very convincing.
    A good transistor amp will suffice. Lamps and single coil pickups enough roots, there is not really like, is like a buzz ...

    Two months since our last romance ...
    I tried the classics: the usa standard, the standard Mexican Baja and special american and even a custom shop pine just like the classic vibe Viellie but you get the picture. The special and baja are in the same spirit as the classic vibe, more expensive obviously, but more importantly, how to say, less friendly!

    I love maple handle, the paint is very nice but I understand you may think otherwise, it's special: try.

    7/10 because although it sure is not worth a U.S. death that kills as some would like to hear and because the jack has a tendency to loosen and the pickguard looks a bit cheap.

    UTILIZATION

    I repeat, I love the handle!
    Weight level I do not find it particularly heavy, but it sure is not a Melody maker.
    Usability telecaster nothing more nothing less.
    Strings of origin must be immediately replaced.
    Good performance agreement
    To see the time

    SOUNDS

    The typical telecaster undoubtedly, we do not ask for miracles to a guitar in this price range and good for the price we can consider that the classic vibe of it! Although it sure is not worth a certain Southwestern U.S. but without a doubt!
    Its vintage wish
    The little extra that makes the difference: it is true that the neck pickup lacks a bit of potato (nothing bad either) but suffice it to the back a little and ...
    The bridge pickup gives it, I love it!
    Conclusion: Enhancing the neck pickup is mandatory! It would be such a shame to go to score what it brings! Otherwise I think rewire everything and change the knobs at the top but it is without it.
    The sound is really the strong point of this guitar!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost 1 year and it's happiness. I'm bassist and I play the guitar to change from time to time and to record the ideas that go through my head in order to present to members of my group. She met and surpassed its role perfectly, often to my guitarist me borrow!
    Do not stop at the brand squier hide and you will see a stop to the color that I love but especially for his son!
    Therefore I would put 8/10, not because it is part of the best guitars in the world to stop the nonsense, but simply because the value for money is extraordinary, she pushes a lot of Southwestern undoubtedly after the small micro enhancement round!

    Very good finish. Channel pleasant

    UTILIZATION

    Easy

    SOUNDS

    This slap well, compresses a bit, but not aggressive. You can get better but it will then put 3 times the price of this Squier. Bridge pickup well shut. Poisition ground but both a little punchy. Soft or jazzy neck pickup.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall a great product in its category

Neck pickup attached to the body, not on the plate.

    UTILIZATION

    nmanche is the very strong point of this little guitare.radius net, very pleasant, semi jumbo frets allow an easy game in bendings. the finish is remarkable for this price, not too round profile C, absolutely wonderful softness and ease. The varnish is bright, beautiful and does not stick in hand. I had a little bowl, the maple neck has a birds eye ... veining almost a wonder! The guitar is lightweight, super comfortable for a TV "base".

    SOUNDS

    its typical vintage telecaster, so special and distinctive country blues, very much focused on acute, hard to saturate, if you do not forget!
    for those who love, the sound is there, the bridge pickup has the juice, a nice fat andit is sending riffs on pop country or delirium. The neck pickup slightly raised close to the strings has a beautiful character and can play almost everything, jazz, blues, accompanying almost acoustic, funky, delicious. The intermediate position is just too bizare for us to do something.

    That said, the output level remains a bit weak and it lacks a bit in the medium of sound. especially as a corrective tone is almost indispensable if one wants to avoid the highs are too intrusive. have fun for a bit, I compensate with the MXR MICROAMP I push at 11am, but it does it well.
    controls the tone / volume work well, which is an important point. (I changed the condo for a sprague vitaminQ 0.033μf I was warm in my boxes, and it is even more effective.

    Nevertheless, being able to compare other TV and other microphones, these are defined, have gas, brilliance (better than less) and dynamics even if we can do better. the bridge pickup is mounted on copper plate, rare on such a range and ensures the design and its vintage.

    clarification, the neck pickup is attached to the body, you can adjust the microphone and look inside without loosen the strings since the plate is free after 5 screws removed easily and password. This're actually quite handy!

    OVERALL OPINION

    The guitar is properly adjusted out of the box and adjusted intonation and accuracy, increase the base of addario (!) Is great comfort (lightweight), the handle does not tire at all, sounds are excellent once the correct carburetion found. she go out of tune all the time, she is very beautiful and is taken in his hands for a yes or a no!
    For those like me who swear by electronics that fits 100% minimum, a change of pickups this guitar can put almost at the U.S. for a price without comparison. it's a bargain.

    NOTHING TO DO with the standard range of Squier and 2 below (affinity, bullet), it is to get back together with China and with Squier. much better than the Fender Chinese, a Korean I also tried.
    I tried the custom model with a rosewood fingerboard, comfort was even better, but there was barely a pbl scary. the idea is to have two different tv with two sets of high-end microphones for less than 1000 euros. do not miss this series. FYI the strats are of the same ilk.
