Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s at a Glance:
Everything that makes a Strat a Strat
Like many Strats that have come before, the Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s sports an alder body with a period-correct 2-color sunburst finish. The traditional maple neck is tinted to resemble a vintage Strat neck with a maple fingerboard. The long-familiar Strat tone is managed with a trio of single-coil pickups powered by Alnico III magnets for clear, bright Strat tones with the perfect amount of sustain. A vintage-style synchronized tremolo rounds out the feature set.
Squier's Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s is also equipped with the features modern players demand. The maple neck is loaded with player-favorite medium-jumbo frets on a modern 9.5" radius neck. Aged plastic parts lend a vintage vibe to the aesthetics, and black dot position markers run the length of the neck.

The best strat for the money
by Buttcrack Benny from Boyle Heights, CAI've owned a handful of strats in many price ranges. I've had an affinity, MIM standard, Highway 1, and an American standard. My classic vibe strat I bought in 2008 is my #1. It is very light. It has ... read more [+]a resonant body. The pickups sound great, no need to upgrade them. The playability is very good thanks to the medium jumbo frets. It stays in tune nicely. I picked this up and bonded with the instrument immediately. It's combination of modern specs, and 50's styling is what makes it special. I love the 2 tone sunburst finish, and the original kluson style tuners. This baby sings! close [-]

Unbelievabe! I'd buy another CV in a nanosecond.
by Mike G from Woodridge, ILI wanted an 'everyday' Strat that was 'Grandchild Proof' so I didn't have to worry about 'my baby' -- an '86 Fender Strat -- if the kids popped over with our daughter.

Those changed my mind and I haven't looked back since.

This Squire Classic Vive 50's Stratocaster is FANTASTIC. It plays like a dream, sounds great, and the two-tone sunburst is breathtakingly beautiful. I've had it now since April and has become my 'go to' Strat (I now rarely play 'my baby').
The setup from the factory was spot on, the intonation was perfect and the action was set just right (for me anyway). And thanks to my Sales Engineer, Andy Miller, the Techs did a quick double-check of the setup before it shipped. Even after the 55 point Evaluation was done. Everyone at Sweetwater are great!
I've been shopping here since Dec of 2011 and Sweetwater is the only place I shop now, and I recommend it to everyone I know. Oh, I'm now looking for another Fender or Squire to be my everyday Strat. My CV 50's Strat is now 'mybaby2'. close [-]
Mine was great, right out the box.
by Anthony from New Orleans, LouisianaI took a chance on this one. Stays in tune for days and vibratos easily.

Squier Classic Vibe Strat '50s ( 2-Tone Sunburst)- Really Sweet!
by Bill B. from Las VegasI love Strats. I own many Fenders--American as well as a few MIMs. I also own a number of G & L guitars -- Legacy's, and an S-500, plus I own a number of low end but decent Strat clones-- Samick Valle... read more [+]y Arts, and a Samick Malibu. I also own a custom made Strat called the "Stardust" made by Neil Smith of Vegas Guitars (probably my favorite Strat type). But I am completely blown away by this Squire 50s Classic Vibe. To start with it has a quarter sawn neck (ala Eric Johnson Strat). Fit and finish--gorgeous! I put on #10 strings and did a basic set up. The neck was rather concave with the 10s but with a twist of the rod (pretty tight it was) it straightened right up. Now this thing plays almost like my high end strats. I had thought about changing out the PUs and pots, but these actually sound great as they are. This Strat out of the box is better than most Fender MIMs. This is really a great value. If I were a pro (I'm definitely not) I doubt I'd be doing shows with it, but for the hobbyist/weekend warrior type musician this is an outstanding guitar for the money. Hats off to Sweetwater--I picked this axe out of their Guitar Gallery and the pictures of it really showed it like it is. No problems or damage in shipping. Guitar Gallery is the best way to buy a guitar online. Also my sales rep (Brandon E.) always follows up on my purchases and has taken care of any issues that have come up (which isn't often). close [-]
