With an exceptionally playable neck and some seriously fantastic sounding pickups, this affordable electric guitar from Squier is another winner!
A tribute to the 1960s evolution of the Strat®, the Classic Vibe ‘60s Stratocaster creates an incredible tone courtesy of a trio of Fender-Designed alnico single-coil pickups. Player-friendly features include a slim, comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile with an easy-playing 9.5”-radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets, as well as a vintage-style tremolo system for expressive string bending effects. This throwback Squier model also features 1960s-inspired headstock markings, rich-looking nickel-plated hardware, and a slick vintage-tint gloss neck finish for an old-school vibe.
Why buy a Squier from The Music Gallery instead of Amazon? Because we add value to them via our World-Class Luthiers and Techs who have seen, set-up, and worked on 100s of thousands of guitars over the last 50 years. Import guitars require considerably more up-keep, routine work, and a massive initial set-up that allows them to play easily in tune. That's part of why Squier Guitars are affordable in the 1st place: they skip many of the expensive, labor-intensive steps that make a guitar play above average. One chord on a Squier from The Music Gallery and you'll understand just how good our Tech's are!
Squier Guitars have long been considered nothing more than an entry-level instrument and for decades, that's all that they were. Nowadays, thanks to CNC Machines, better-trained employees, and simple finishing techniques, we are seeing the level of quality raising across the globe. Squiers are made in China and Indonesia these days are they shockingly fine players. While it is true, the metals on these instruments aren't as nice as the American Made counterparts. For beginners, this is not much of an issue. And for more experienced players, these guitars are a perfect way to incorporate an inexpensive version when you need something for maybe just a couple of songs. Also the best choice for modification due to the wealth of after-market parts available these days. Stop by the shop today and compare practically the entire Fender Guitar Line!
