Squier Vintage Modified 70's

I have always played Telecasters. I've only owned one American Standard Strat and lost it. But on a hunch I saw this Squier hanging on the wall and I picked it up, played it without plugging it in. I knew almost instantly this was it. I picked it up a couple of days later bought it and I was right. When I plugged it in , it was true love. I've payed as as much as $5000.00 for guitars before, but I got this for around 235.00 . I did some minor, and mean minor adjustments. You know setting the intonation,"it was off only by a few cents. Dialed in the whammy bar, again minor adjustment, now I can dive bomb like early Van Halen. It goes from country to straight up in your face Deep Purplish rock with just the roll of the volume. I am a professional guitarist for over twenty eight years now, and all I can say to sum this up is way to go Indonesian Fenders!!!! This guitar is dead stock and it is every bit as good , or better than some of my most expensive guitars. This is truly a working musicians guitar. If you got a couple of hundred bucks, go get one now. I'll probably hot rod the pickups ,but I won't get rid o the stock ones. Truly a masterpiece , and a hell of a ton of fun to play. Don't change a thing, this guitar is everything I say it is. All I know is proof is in the pickin' try one for yourself, and you too will be a beliver as well.

Fantastic Guitar

The answer to the age-old question, "how many guitars do you need?" is simple..."just one more." So, when my kids gave me a Sweetwater giftcard for Christmas, I decided to add another axe to my collection, but I didn't want to spend a ton. I wanted something that would be visually appealing, fun to play, and of decent quality to back up my mexi strat and tele. After doing some research, I went for the Vintage Modified 70's strat. Out of the box, the guitar looks great. The vintage white color is actually a pale yellow. It reminds me of the color strat that Yngwie Malmsteen and Ritchie Blackmore used back in the day. The neck is a gold hue, and the black pickups and knobs make this guitar. The guitar is noticably lighter than my strat, but it does not feel "cheap" in any way. It is a solid guitar in every respect. It does not feel like a toy in my hands. The action may be a touch high out of the box, but that is a matter of taste. In any event, that's nothing a quick set-up wouldn't take care of. The guitar plays well...bends come with ease, and it stays in tune. As far as the tone is concerned, I wanted that authentic strat sound, and this guitar delivers nicely. It handles the blues as well as classic rock and metal riffs without a problem. It also sounds great clean, too. The sound is unmistakable. It is a strat without question. As far as my rating is concerned, keep in mind that everything is relative. When I give this guitar a 4.5, I'm comparing it to other guitars in its class and of like construction. This is not a low end piece of junk. The value for the price is unbeatable. Pick this baby up and you won't be disappointed.

Excellent Strat for the Price.

I purchased this guitar in store at the Sweetwater facility. As always Sweetwater's customer service was beyond expectation. This is a very solid guitar for the low price. I gig every week and this has become my number one. The body is basswood so it is important to know that it will dent easily and it is easy to strip the screws if you tighten them too tight in the body. However the basswood makes it a fairly light guitar. The electronics are decent, I recommend swapping them out for American fender parts, but they are acceptable for live performance. I had an issue with one of the tuners not holding tune after about three months of heavy use and swapped them out for Fender 70's tuners, which required some drilling, but was not difficult. I also replaced the pickguard with an aged white one, and all the knobs and pickups covers with cream ones and it looks incredible. The reason I prefer this guitar over my other Stratocasters is the neck. The neck is incredibly smooth, slim, and fast. I generally perform for 3-4 hours at a time and the ease of this neck keeps my hands from cramping. The only comparison I have seen to the playability of this neck was on a vintage 1977 Stratocaster. The finish on this guitar is great. It allows some of the natural wood to show through and will wear nicely. In today's market with some after market upgrades this guitar will be much nicer than a Chinese Fender for nearly double the price. Squire has really gone the distance the last couple of years to make affordable, quality products and it shows very much in this instrument.

good bargain

This guitar is a good value after you spend some time on it. Every time I get a new a new guitar I take it to guitar tech. Out of the box it needed some minor adjustments and I also polished the frets with steel wool, if your not sure how to do it just look it up, its easy. I highly recommend this squire, I have a classic vibe squire made in China and it cost $ more than a vintage modified made in Indonesia. I'm my opinion the vintage modified is a better guitar. Just take it to tech!
