Product Description

The Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s is a rough-and-tumble electric guitar ready for almost any musical situation. With an alder body; rosewood fingerboard; 21-fret, vintage-tint gloss maple neck, this Strat definitely has that '60s vibe but with the modern playability of a 9-1/2" neck radius and medium-jumbo frets. This Squier Strat's tone is thick with a custom set of Alnico V single-coil pickups-a quick attack with a bit more midrange oomph and a bridge pickup that packs a knockout punch! Custom stagger pole pieces provide improved string-to-string balance.

Classic Vibe!

Back in 1982, the very first Squier by Fender guitars and basses came ringing out of Asia. Known for their excellent vintage-quality look, feel, sound, and construction, those early Squier instruments and their Fender-branded counterparts are now highly sought-after collector's items revered by guitar enthusiasts as models of "getting it right" while aiming at value-conscious players. The Squier Classic Vibe Series reflects that simultaneous commitment to excellence, value and vibe. Mirroring classic Fender designs, the Classic Vibe offering is not intended to be era or vintage correct-but rather imparting the vibe of a classic Fender design. Each with distinctive feature set combinations-all adding up to one classic looking instrument. Great sound, vintage looks, unbeatable value-Classic Vibe!

I've been playing guitar for 23 years, and I've always been a Fender fan. I've tried some Squiers before but never was satisfied. Now, on the other hand, I love the new Squiers, especially this Classic Vibe 60's Strat. I've had MIM and American Strats that required a lot of work to set up, adjust, etc. Not the case with this Strat. The finish is awesome, the tone is deep and throaty, the playability is outstanding. I'm a Blues fanatic, and this Strat handles the sound with aplomb. I never use the tremolo system. When I get Strats, I always have the bridge locked down, so going out of tune is never an issue with me. By the way, all Strats will detune when using the Tremolo. I get perfect Texas Blues tones from it. With tweaking the amp, I can also get very nice Neo-classical tones that sing and scream. I'm tired of other professional guitarists saying that Squiers aren't good. I use the Mustang line of amps, and the pairing of the Classic 60's Squier and the Mustang amp is wonderful. Doesn't being a professional guitarist mean that one can use any guitar and make it sing? Just a thought. Always remember, though: what matters is ones' personal taste.

.It's become my main gigging guitar because it looks great (I have the candy apple red), plays even better and best of all it sounds so amazing and it's so inexpensive. If you love the playing feel and style of stratocasters how can you not buy one of these guitars? Go to a shop somewhere and play one if you have to, you'll be so happy you did.
What a great guitar as is. It's everything you want a Strat to be and then some. The vintage feel from the old style tuners and bridge saddles to the mint green-white pick guard, really set this guitar apart from any other guitar in this price range. One of my favorite features is the gloss neck. I will firmly say that it's my favorite neck on any guitar I've ever put my hands on and that's saying a lot because I work for Private Reserve Guitars and I handle very expensive guitars all day long. Of course some will scoff at this but IMO it's the best playing neck I've played.
My guitar stays in tune great but I can't comment on that with the trem coming into play because I don't use the trem. And as I stated the look of the vintage style tuners and bridge saddles really pushes this guitar to the next level and besides looking good they function just fine.

I love the PUP's on this guitar as well. They're on the noisy side but I absolutely love that out of a Strat, it's one of those things that you have to kind of account for in your playing style and it would be true of any vintage all stock Strat that you had. I did replace the bridge PUP with a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail but not because the stock PUP sounded bad only because I play punk/metalish type stuff in my band I wanted this guitar to be my main guitar. When I say main guitar that means something too because I own over 20 guitars everything from Chinese cheapies to overpriced American made guitars. The stock PUPs are nice and chimey and even do some decent dirty work. Like I said I put the Hot Rail in there to add some beef but I wanted that same mid PUP quack and neck PUP bell that this guitar has in full.
What can you say of the value of this guitar? It's the best there is period!

.Before buying this guitar, I played about ten strats, most of which cost more than a $1000. I played in a studio, at music stores and in a friend's home studio to get the sound of a good strat in my head and the feel of one in my hands. That way, I could send this one back promptly if it disappointed. But it didn't. I received it at five in the afternoon, tuned it, played a while, then went to band practice where every member raved about it's sound. No effects, just a Fender twin behind it. Not only did it sound good, but it was easier to play than most of the guitars I had tried. I did a double-back test and let a friend with two $2,000 strats play it and he couldn't stop. The fit and finish is beautiful. It stays in tune even after severe bends and wailing solos and does a good job on rhythm backup. It's my first strat after playing a hollowbody jazz guitar and many acoustic/electric setups for years. Now I can never go back. You're crazy not to try one of these. I hope you're as lucky.

.I have been playing an Affinity Strat with the pickups upgraded to Fender Custom Shop Texas Specials. It sounded pretty good, but the neck on the guitar leaves a lot to be desired. So I decided to buy a Classic Vibe 60s Strat for the body and neck and drop my Texas Specials in it.

When I got the CV, it did not sound as good as my Affinity with Texas Specials. I did not expect it to. After finding that the pickups in the CV were dime size, while the Texas Specials were quarter size, I decided to make the pickup switch. So I put the CV pickups in the Affinity and was surprised by the results. My Affinity sounded even better than it did with the Texas Specials! The CV pickups were much better than I expected.

Then I put the Texas Specials in the Classic Vibe and restrung with my usual strings: Nickel Rockers Eric Johnson lights. These are great strings with a .010" high E and a .050" low E. When I was finished the Classic Vibe sounded very good as well. So it was the strings that were the original problem with the Classic Vibe. Not the pickups.

After completing the job I wondered if I had made a mistake in switching the pickups. It took a lot of analysis as comparing the pickups with the same strings showed me that the two guitars sounded almost identical. An untrained ear would not hear the difference in the pickups. But if you listen carefully, the Classic Vibe pickups have a hint more treble. And the Texas
Specials sound a hint more full. But for the most part, they sound the same, so I decided to leave the pickups where they were mainly because I like the idea of having USA electronics in my CV. But to be honest, I think I prefer the Classic Vibe pickups to the FCS Texas Specials, because you can roll off that extra treble if you want with a notch on the tone control.

Bottom line, is that the Classic Vibe is a great Strat with pickups that rival or even beat Fender Custom Shop Texas Specials. Fender delivers incredible value with their Classic Vibe and Vintage Modified guitars with quality that rivals guitars that cost 2 to 4 times as much. Thanks Fender.

.I have been playing guitar over 30 years, and have owned a variety of electrics and acoustics. I am absolutely thrilled with my 60's classic vibe strat. Before I bought it I tested it against some F... read more [+]ender's - a standard (Mexican) Strat, a used Strat Plus with noiseless pickups, and an american standard. I played through a Fender Deluxe Reverb. In my opinion, the sound quality blew them all away - yes, including the American Standard. Why - crystal clarity - incredible bell-like tones that made some of the others sound - well - poor in comparison. So where are the compromises - not the appearance, it looks stunning - I think the primary weakness is in tuning stability. Even there it is not bad - it tunes easily, but I may need to tune (adjust) more frequently - But for the sound quality and feel of the neck, who cares. For $300 this is the buy of the decade. I plan to buy some other classic vibe series guitars - the 50's Tele and the 60's Jazz Bass - I have played them both and am equally impressed. close [-]

.Good value.
This is a Strat folks. I bought this along with a '50s Classic Vibe. Love them both. Don't let the Squier name fool you. I paid big bucks for a U.S. Strat and it's not that much better. These Classic Vibes are better than my Mex Strat.

.Would definitely buy this strat again. Finish and details are top shelf.
Standard strat configuration and controls
One tone pot wasn't working until the knob was rotated a couple of times - other than that, the quality level of this guitar is awesome. Certainly seems more like an American strat than any previous Squiers I've owned.
Excellent value especially if you can catch one on sale.

.Excellent guitar for the money......I originally purchased the Burgundy Mist 60s Stratocaster and liked it so much I also got the Classic Vibe 50s version. Since then I have picked up a second Classic Vibe 60s Stratocaster. I always heard nice things about these Squier guitars, but never really gave them a chance. I usually play my American Standard or Deluxe Stratocasters, and kind of looked down on these as cheaper copies. I recently purchased a Limited Edition American Vintage '65 Stratocaster in Burgundy Mist, but the Squier Classic Vibe 60s Stratocaster is more fun to play! I do prefer the sound of the 60s Classic Vibe over the 50s one......Not that the 50s is a bad choice, but it has the Alnico III Pickups, which are not as punchy as the Alnico V Pickups in the 60s version. These Squier Classic Vibes have an excellent fit and finish, unlike some other brands that offer cheaper alternatives. They are lightweight and balanced with a very solid feel. No cheap copy/imitation here! They have quickly become a favorite go to guitar for all genres of music.

.It is sooooooooooooo AWESOME.(what else is there to be said?)
Squier Classic Vibe Stratocaster '60s Electric Guitar 3-Color Sunburst
.@ExperiancedPlayer's review says gauges thicker than .009 will damage and void the warranty. This is true for the "strat & controller" guitar "toy' used with Rock Band. It's not true for this CV series or any other standard guitars. You can read more on Fender's support page, where they make no mention of the warranty applied to string gauge on standard models.

The guitar's quality is surprising. The fret edges are smooth, action is tolerable, and tone is crisp and clean.

The strings that come with the guitar lend a nice clear and crisp tone. I put some DiMarzio Nickel 009s and lost all of clarity and ended up with a muffled clarity, reminiscent of cheaper guitars. I'd stick with their installed strings, the Fender® USA 250L, NPS (.009-.042 Gauges) unless you have some other brand that you trust.

I'm getting used to not having as much gain as my humbucker guitars, but I'm not getting used to the excessive hum and noise the pickups give off when you're not playing. I don't think this is unusual for strats unless you get modified pickups that remove this interference. Once you play, the hum is not audible, so just dial back the volume knob when you're not playing.

The volume knob is right by the strings and bridge. This is taking some getting used to but isn't a deal breaker for me.
