Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom
Preamble: This is the second guitar I have the joy of owning. the first was a gift from my wife (she was stolen on the train me) ..
I therefore looked exactly the same skyscraper (origin, etc.) that I had the opportunity to buy a deluxe Telecaster pickups with fender ...
this second model was bought used, the seller had installed humbucker Bare Knuckle, the output level was too strong for my taste, so I handed the microphone origins (without any label)

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 ...
With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
pricipalement overdrive, fuzz "s" and delays on two amps (guitar and bass)
What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "bold", ....)?
Hot fatty defined e ...
What are the sounds you prefer,
all ...
you hate?


How long have you use it?
6 years the first two weeks the second.

Have you tried many other models before buying it? 5

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

Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom
looks like a telecaster but with two humbuckers and a plate that looks more like a strat adjustable volume and two tone


round nice not too heavy


regarding the sound with microphones origin is frankly not terrible but I mounted above the john and safe for pleasure is a warm presence and a real round sound with bass treble clear PRESENT etdes . therefore means original and very well modified


I have 5 years now but I'll probably mod already sold

coolzapp's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Huge potential!"

Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom
Everything has already been said!


The handle to false airs lespauliens I think! Big enough, but still nice and you get used easily.
Weight level I was quite surprised because it is quite heavy in fact.
Access to acute is easy, what's a telecaster.
Sound level, I will discuss below;)


To begin I must tell you my story, initially my plan was to buy a Squier Telecaster custom, repaint it in white but keep the microphones origins .. However, contrary to what I saw and play, the pickups are not good at all, I found them empty, with no personality and especially when there is whistling a lot of gain distortion! So, I decided to change it, I started my research and that's where I'm falling on the GFS brand. I was a little hesitant, but given the price (25 € the mic) I told myself that I would lose not much the worse. Finally they are very good, I know it's hard to believe but true! (I'll leave a notice on the microphones) Anyway, here for the story! All this to say that I did not appreciate at all the original pickups but I do not want to go down the guitar because it has huge potential and with some modifications it has everything a great!
I return to the sound, I tried it once in rehearsal, I think the clean and crunch to defend well, especially for this price range, for the cons distortion sounded a bit disgusting and she hissed.
In my opinion, changing pickups, this guitar has everything a large and easily rivals much more expensive guitar.

PS: For those interested, the pickups are GFS Fat Pat and they sound serious, indeed I will leave a notice.


I have the past few months, however the changes were completed recently and so I do not really use it for a few days.
Basically, my goal was just to have a model telecaster classic 72, the white paint in and change the pickups if needed so I did not really try a lot of models before you buy.
What I like most is the look and quality of the violin, it is well done and the mechanics are good.
The quality is very good price considering the quality of the violin.
In short, in summary I bought this guitar used for 120 €, I repainted in white, I changed the pickups with GFS Fat Pat and the result is brilliant: a guitar that sounds great and monster has a face for a little over 200 €! What good is spending huge sums of money when you can have a very good guitar for cheap;)

Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom
Well, sorry, but for features, check out the other com's.


The handle, a real Telecaster neck is really good to start: not too thick or too thin, it easily marries the shape of your hand, it is happiness!
The shape is a classic telecaster, so easy to access acute. However, this guitar is heavy at the end of a good rehearsal (brief 3-4h) you start to feel well: provide a good strap!


The sound of this guitar is quite surprising for a guitar that is low end: in clean, it's all good, clean, precise enough to crunch the microphones follow without too much trouble, whatever the sound becomes a bit messy when we begin to push the crunch (very) strong.
Only in large distal one feels the true boundary microphones: Here they do not really follow.
So pretty versatile guitar anyway.

I use this guitar for really clean, it has a "je ne sais quoi" that I like.


I have this guitar for over a year, when I bought it, I had not tried many models, I just started electric guitar.
However, even today, this guitar is part of the best at this price, in my opinion. Now, I can still quote another guitar the same price, but different sounds interesting: Lag Roxanne 100 or 200 (I know which is worth 250 €). If I had known this guitar, my choice would have hesitated between the two.
Warning, these two guitars are guitars for beginners, this is not the ultimate guitar!

What I like most ... the clean sound, clean and well defined, and the telecaster in itself, I think this guitar is still beautiful, with black lacquered metal and microphones!

What I like least ... nothing considering the price.
Value for money 9 / 10 in my opinion (not 10, you can toujorus better ^ ^)

Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Custom
Everything is already said.


I was looking for a telecaster type guitar to use an old Warmoth neck rosewood fingerboard TV lying to me since QLQ years. I found this model of opportunity for € 130, I jumped on it, especially for the custom look.

The original handle is excellent for a guitar of this price, I keep it in a corner FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

The guitar is very heavy! to believe that there are pieces of lead in the body, but in fact not.

Qualitée the paint is poor, it flakes off in large pieces at the slightest fart.

The microphones are simply ignoble origins.


I set up a sph90 1n (phat cat, seymour) in severe and I changed the bridge for a custom standard telecaster with vintage STL1 54, which gives me an incredible his telecaster and a sharp grain p90 I was looking for have long been serious. the mix of the two microphones is very interresting.

Originally, the sound is palichon, the pickups are really sucks, I have already said above.


Overall it is a skyscraper next to the interresting price that want to have fun tinkering. Originally, it is beautiful, but it sounds pretty bad, for against the Luter is good.
