Awesome guitar!

Could not be happier! Read all of the reviews before purchasing and they were spot on. I have a Fender American Standard tele but wanted something I could try some upgrades and mods with. Great workmanship on the neck and frets are smooth. Pickups and electronics sound so good I may not be doing the mods I had planned right away. Beautiful guitar and great addition to my growing guitar collection. It would make a terrific first electric guitar and wish I had known it sooner. Don't be a guitar snob and pass up this one because it was made in China. I also have a made in China Epi Les Paul that I love as much as this one. Thanks to my sales engineer Jim for the fast delivery and follow up!


An amazing guitar! The bad rap people give Squier is nonsense in my humble opinion. I have wanted a Tele but not having anyplace near me to try them out makes it difficult to compare the quality and tonal differences. I love the look and sound of the classic Telecaster and the Squier Classic Vibe Custom was in my budget. I couldn't be happier with my Tele and with Sweetwater!!

Great Guitar

I bought this guitar for my son for Christmas. He loved it! I have owned several Fender Teles. This guitar rates right up there with them The fit and finish was impecable. The guitar sounds great. I would highly recommend it to anyone on a budget!!

Great Guitar

I have owned several American Std strats and teles over the years and like many, believed that the American Std was a far better product than what could be produced from China. I first saw this guitar at a local store sitting among several Std teles. It was absolutely stunning in finish. The American Std next to it actually had a run in the finish. I compared this guitar to several other standards in the store and it held its own against all of them in finish, fit, ease of playing and sound. I ordered from Sweetwater because of their reputation and the fact they do a 55 point inspection of every guitar before it's shipped. For $379 you just cannot beat this guitar if you're in the market for a tele. Guitars are a personal preference and I know there are die-hard American Standard players who will swear the Chinese products can't compare, but they are wrong on this model. It has a sleek neck, excellent action, and depending on your style of music, paired with your choice of amp, sounds great, and looks great too. If you feel like you need to pay $600 more to have USA stamped on the headstock go ahead, but you're not going to notice $600 more in sound or finish quality. Besides, if you want different sounding pick-ups, etc., you can still do that for less than $600. Do yourself a favor and check out one of these and then use the savings to buy a good cord and amp!
