squire vintage mod. surf strat (surf green)

Although I deal quite a bit with sweetwater I found this guitar in the secondary market place. I was greatly impressed with the pickups and the neck especially. the tone was outstanding and the playability was as good as some of my more expensive guitars. The intonation was spot on and it is just a joy to play. If I had not found such a good deal I would gladly pay the asking price tag from sweetwater. What a great value! The lipstick pickup covers are beautiful and remind me of the Danelectro and Sears guitars of yesterday. You can't go wrong with this guitar !

Sweetwater came through!

I fell in lust with this guitar upon seeing it on a local music store's website. I like to buy from the local mom & pop shops so I went there intending to buy it, since it was listed as being in stock. Unfortunately when I asked about it, the hipster employee told me he had sold it 6 weeks prior. He further annoyed me by telling me how nice it was. Then he reluctantly offered to order one ("I guess. If you really want it").That's when I decided to check out Sweetwater, since they seem to have a very good reputation. Now I know why! They notified me as soon as they got the guitar in stock, the ordering process was effortless, and when the guitar arrived, it became clear that their evaluation is everything it's cracked up to be.The guitar is cosmetically flawless, the neck is straight, the intonation is dead perfect (!), and the pickups sound great!Well done Squier for offering such a beautiful instrument at such a great price, and well done Sweetwater for making sure that my personal guitar is such a joy to play!

Exceeds expectations !

Squier is up to great things. This is a true gem, and a great value. I enjoy the Strat profile, the rosewood fret board is a really nice feature, and in my mind an asset with regard to playability. The lipstick tube pick-ups are a classic touch. Stand out color, the pick guard has a marble-ized effect. Based on value, you should buy one today. I own several Les Pauls, and Epiphones, but man do I enjoy playing this guitar. It is solid,well constructed, yet not overly heavy. I must compliment my rep Kevin Samuel as well. He is a really cool guy, and extremely professional and knowledgable. He is always helpful and very patient

Great guitar! Smooth and fun to play

I got the surf green about two years ago sold it to friend and got it back because it is so awesome and man the smoothness of the neck and the sound of the old school duncan designed pups are sweet they let you really dig in and get multiple soft or dirty sounds. Great for blues and rock...and melodic tunes.I did have the issue of the most complaint i have seen about this guitar happening when a pup fell through upon adjusting etc but i just secured it better with a rubber washer underneath. Beautiful fretboard and just smooth guitar and nice feeling neck it just flows. Whatever is goin on at the fender factory in indonesia is good i cant tell you. This guitar holds its own even against my deluxe usa strat. All i can say is I love this electric, try one.

Amazing Guitar!

I ordered this guitar to fill a void in my electric arsenal. Need something inexpensive right now, so Squires are know for their value and they are easy to modify. Was not very impressed with an earlier Squire Classic Vibe Stratocaster, so thought I'd try this baby. Good move! Right out of the box I was very pleased with the quality - - nice clean frets, beautiful slick neck (even had some nice graining), decent tuners, great paint job, and solid hardware. It did need some serious setup, but all my guitars do because I like easy action. I decided to remove the crappy stock strings and do a complete setup on this guitar. Had to put lemon oil on the fingerboard, and polished the frets with 0000 steel wool (although they were fine). I removed the neck and made sure the neck joint was free of any paint or stray sawdust that would interfere with sound transfer, and tightened it down fast in the good-fitting pocket. I never use the tremolo, so I blocked it with some maple blocks and loosened the springs somewhat. I put on some Fender .009's and set the intonation, and filed a couple of the string slots in the nut, and put graphite in the slots - - now this guitar is a real peach! Stays in tune for days, and it plays like butter after tweaking the string saddles. I couldn't believe how solid it was and how great it played! I couldn't put it down the first couple of days! I must say this is the best purchase I've ever made on an electric. It plays circles around my old USA Strat I used to have, and the sounds from the Duncan pups is very strong. I did have to raise the pickups to their maximum (which is where I like them) but they have plenty of bite and power. I especially like the neck pickup, and the #2 position is very nice. This guitar is built like a tank, and is rather hefty for basswood (7 lb. 14 oz.) but I like that. It just vibrates with tone, you can feel it in your bones. Really pretty thing, with the MOTS pickguard. Hardware seems fine, so I'll probably just leave it all stock. I will be gigging with this one for sure, and if you want to give 10 times the price just to say you have an American Strat then be my guest, but this Squire is simply amazing, and I know a good guitar when I see it. Solid as a rock, and with that sound you always know says "Stratocaster". Just make sure you realize you'll have to do some major setup and a few "adjustments", but the hardware is all there to make it a killer axe.
