Micmic__'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom
see precedents posts, shielding the body with a good layer of insulating paint and wiring rather well done although I think here must be different from one room to another)

first prize.

assembly full hard (I had to add some wood filler holes in the heel of the neck which 2 were virtually stripped and no rights, I also had to re-center the plate that supports the pickups, I have the opportunity to flush down the bridge)

so you have to get your hands dirty

she has a good mouth


heavy enough,
access to acute rather good considering the "neck socket"
efforts must be made to find a sound that goes well (not bad settings)


by-against, there just has a good range of usable sounds
for any style I find a sound,

for me, it is necessary that my guitar is of the character and it's done.

I must specify that I am a "riffeur"


bought last Christmas
it's a good guitar for a beginner who does not have a Swiss account and is not confined to one style in particular (although ...

except for the pure metalheads

the handle is made for lumberjacks, too thick for me at first (I have a sl400g marlin and the handle is highway-land, nothing to see), but we made it
Change the outset strings and opt for the 11-52

after as I said above, it is still déstinée to scratch-mechanics (it will not be delivered in a box velvet that one but in a beautiful cardboard)

will see the test Chatreeo on youtube to the sounds, even if it's just limited to the position selector

m.à.j: for a beginner, put a little more and take a hagstrom (good cash scratches and cheap)

bfrete's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" excellent alternative to much more expensive fender!"

Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom
Made in Indonesia
2 volumes and 2 tones like all custom TV 72 and a 3-position selector
the neck is maple including key
Easel TV classic single microphone
humbucker Fender "Wide Range" in the neck and Duncan Design TE-101B
microphones excellent for this price range
the only problem on the board, the selection of the wood body, Coles 4 pieces to each other without any logic assembly to harmonize the grain, the aesthetic is made to kick in line with the price of this guitar but a sunburst that not forgive, we are very far from a U.S. finish that makes perfect sense ..


the neck is maple with a one room with a superb vintage honey glaze
profile is identical to my 40th anniversary stratocaster U.S., a little more
bigger and rounder than on my TV SQ classic vibe 50. the accuracy of the shaft is perfectly straight along its entire length, no strip (after a good adjustment) even in the extreme treble, planning frets is perfect, worthy of much more expensive violin


Customers who bought this guitar used, the previous owner installed a humbucker in the bridge DiMarzio Tone Zone in simple format, so I express myself not on the bridge pickup .. quality duncan TE-101B design is apparently found in all reviews I've read even if you do not really know if these pickups duncan design really come from a production Semour duncan
However I am surprised by the performance of wide range, I was expecting a humbucker lambda lacking clarity and precision but this is not the case, nice surprise! very nice microphone that has heat and shine with a good potato and a nice crunch from that teases gain. I further tested the DiMarzio which seems to defend himself in saturated but sorely lacking dynamic clear sound for my taste, the intermediate position has not really convinced me, it is not impossible that I go back to the duncan place to confirm ..


I've just acquire this guitar so it's still a bit early to be totally definitive and categorical on the machine but a priori as often with Squier series "vintage modified" and "classic vibe" have a price extremely quality report Interestingly, these guitars are much more than instruments for beginners, and are an excellent alternative to more expensive Fender. if the price is an important criterion that you not be too fussed about the finish (wood graining and contour of the pickguard) and you already own the upscale but want
diversify your guitar set cost, have no hesitation, jump on these shovels will give real pleasure!

The handle is it enjoyable?
it feels comfortable immediately

Access to acute (recent freight) is it easy?
I go there quite often, but do not do special tricks ...

Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
all elements must fall or (selector, controls, bridge)
it is not lightweight, but it is much lighter than a les paul ...

to get a good sound, just plug and play ..

like the first, I modified the mail: Wiring paul 50's wiring and capacitors (oiled paper NOS)

I also placed strings d'addario chrome Oct. 48)

I set the harmonics and height of bridges .. a bit of a fender product and cleaning lets go!


when I changed the wiring "50'wiring" she gained impetus and clarity (with the same microphones ..)

properly adjusted (neck, bridge harmonics), this guitar sounds just already, which is a very good thing, the neck is thin and comfortable

Once connected, the issue provided humbucker sound both warm and defined, the maple fingerboard is not there some foreign-Thee ...

if you want to play metal, go your way or buy EMG ...
with overdrive or a Fuzz Tone Bender, this guitar will give you great sensations,

what attracted me to this custom telecaster is that it is unique (no single coils) Gibsonnien the controls ... the concept

Are they suitable for your style of music?
I play instrumental rock and this guitar is made for me ...

How would you rate the quality / price?
very respectable, they are better finished than the Chinese ...

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
I did it a second time, so yes

ps: the 50 'wiring is the mod to do before changing anything ... I publish a photo of the Modified

TheJeff666's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"A stew with great potential"

Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom
Little to moderate an opinion on the quality of this guitar violin ...
made in Indonesia ... with wooden crate, the agathis. this wood has two interesting for manufacturers of guitars features, this is simply one of the cheapest and most available on the market, and its acoustic properties are interesting (not far from mahogany, purists will bite me. ..). on the other hand it has a major flaw, it is extremely soft, so tinkerers should be very careful. After two or three unscrewing screwing the screws into the wood will no longer hold, and an error is very hard to catch up, finally, it marks very quickly and not a little ... It is unfortunately the type of wood on more expensive guitars (Rev. example ...) a joke on you?
Squier handle base, I love it, shrink quality handle aging well. Junction poor body handle ...
The hardware is minimal in terms of quality (it begins to oxidize at home), mechanical hold relatively good agreement, I do not ask them more ...
Overall, the level of finish is really insufficient in view of the price. basecoat with default (seen on many models), paint ugly and minima, a fold pickguard too thin and ill-fitting (that curls ...).
The or is the cat is in the mail, it is very simple to redo everything and change. The pickups have no potato or personality, the knobs can be replaced by switches so they are not progressive and unreliable when wiring and soldering, my 11 year old daughter is better ...
Short enough for the new price and even the score on occasion ...


Good to handle, I am very fender, and it gives me the right of this guitar.
Ergonomics and access to acute, it is a TV, we like it or not ...
When to get a good sound with honestly with electronics and the original pickups, I've just never reached ...
on the other hand after modifications, it's just become one of my main guitars ...


Well I'll talk to her after the changes. This guitar was given to me by my wife, and long unused. I needed in another project and had a lot of parts waiting: 490R and 498T pickups gibson knobs CTS condo paper oil and good braided cable. The idea was to upgrade the guitar and sell it at a good price. So replacement pickups by Gibson, complete change of electronics and wiring to the old Les Paul ... I also painted and customized pickguard.
THE slap!! Even my luthier was on my ass. It has been compared to a Mesa other similar guitars store, gibson, hagstrom, vox, esp ... she exploded all ...
Great for rock music and other saturated, but also superb in its clear (casseroles, arpeggios, picking ...), I even played jazz with ... A very precise and articulate sound, less dark than on a standard guitar LP, but warm and with a soul ... Versatility is extreme (I myself am very surprised, I'm quite single coil ...), especially with real knobs.
So finally I have not sold, I sold another great, I never thought I'd sell (77 custom locket love the violin better mounted fender wide range) and this is the guitar I first unsheathed now ...
There is surprising is that Gibson pickups were far from sound both on the standard SG they were from, they seemed very bland where change ...
So I now have to put a real hardware and real pickguard ...


What I like most about this guitar is the great surprise I had after amendment, I did not really expect and I was betting not a Kopeck this shovel, even after mod .. .
What I like least is that we can sell more than € 300 as a low-end guitar and ended badly ...
I've had 3 years and 6 months since the electronic change. It has been 30 years since I played the guitar, and I have seen happen or had a bunch of shovels of all kinds (check my profile).
The value for money is way for me (although it was offered to me). For 340 € in new one can find much better guitars (better wood, better finishes, better electronics ...) and I would never have made that choice (my wife and I did in the thanks). Below 150 €, given the potential for an upgrade, it can be interesting, but it's still a little Lotto and it can be expensive in terms of initial quality of the guitar and its ability to resell . So an investment thinking.
In any case it is still became one of my main guitars with a wonderful sound ...
