Product Description

Squier's Vintage Modified '72 Telecaster Thinline evokes the popular second incarnation of that era's stylishly enlightened Tele model. The original late-'60s version, with its two single-coil pickups, was updated in 1972 with two great-big, great-sounding Wide Range humbucking pickups for an even more distinctive sound and personality, and that's exactly what Squier gives you here, along with a gorgeous semi-hollow ash body and white pearloid pickguard, smooth-playing maple neck and fingerboard, six-saddle string-through-body bridge and much more.

This is a great guitar for the money no doubt, The Fender Wide range humbuckers sound amazing the body is really nice fit and finish. I dig the guitar. I just bought this Thinline and a Squier Vintage Modified Tele Deluxe both in the last month. Fantastic guitars! The Deluxe has a better neck profile12" Radius Feels much better in my hand. The neck profile on this guitar is just to small for me. I will be changing out the neck. I think this is an amazing guitar for the money. I've been playing Squier and Fender guitars since I was a kid in the 1980s. Squier has come a long way. If you want a great guitar for the money buy a Squier Deluxe or Thinline you can't go wrong with either guitar. Both play and sound great through a good tube amp.

For a quick overview, I have played 20+ years, studied recording technology in college & worked in a studio, and now write gear reviews and columns for Live2Play. While not the greatest player, I do have a little bit of experience. One thing I have focused on since I have started writing in the music industry is finding great quality budget gear. From all of my product demos, I have to say that this is hands down the best guitar I have played for under 300. The crown used to belong to the Epi Dot Studio (which is also a pretty great guitar).

I'm a huge Tele fan and have always wanted a Thinline. I had a few Custom Guitar's Friend gift cards left over from Christmas when I first saw this guitar. I just couldn't resist.

Right out of the box it played and sounded great. The setup was very good, but I like playing around with my guitars, so I tweaked it a little and added 10's (it came stock with 9's, but I like heavier strings). Now it plays like a dream.

The craftsmanship is fantastic, I have no complaints there. The neck is a modern C style and is very similar in shape and feel to the MIM Tele Standards, although the fretwork is better than most MIM's I have played. In fact, I tried out a MIM 72' Thinline Reissue and a Chinese made Modern Player Thinline, and this guitar is significantly better built than either of them. Like I said, best sub-300 guitar.

For playability, appearance, and overall sound, this guitar is great. The tuners, pots, and switch aren't great. They work, but they're what you'd expect from an inexpensive guitar. At some point, I'll probably swap them out for better parts. These are not necessary changes. It is great without any changes, but I really like tinkering with my guitars.

Overall, I can't say enough good about this guitar. If you have wanted a Thinline tele, go for it, you'll be glad you did. As for it being a Squier, if a Squier was good enough for Ed O'Brien to play on the first 2 Radiohead albums, it's good enough for my collection.

.I owned the MIM version of these guitar about ten years ago. Squier has been doing great things with the Classic Vibe and Vintage Modified lines, so when I saw they were introducing the '72 Thinline to the VM lineup, I had to try one. Wow! This guitar compares very favorably with the more expensive Mexican version. In fact, I prefer the Squier over that one because of the 9.5" radius and medium jumbo frets vs, 7.25" and vintage frets on the Mexican.The tone of these wide range humbuckers is amazing. You can go from twang, to blues, to jazz, in an instant with this guitar. They are extremely versatile pickups, and allow you to cover a lot of tonal ground. I was really shocked with how great these humbuckers were. They are so rich and full, but yet you can still get some Tele twang on the bridge. My guitar had some finish imperfections and some wax in the f-hole, but minor issues like that are acceptable to me on a Squier Vintage Modified 72 Telecaster Thinline Maple Neck Electric Guitar 3-Color Sunburst
.The quality of this guitar is outstanding for the price. The pots, electronics and tuners are average, but the pickups are good. The playability was outstanding out of the box. Very low action with nice tone. From past purchases, this guitar compares to ones that cost 2-3 times as much.

To rate the guitar by each part:

Neck: A
Body: A
Pickups: B
Tuners: B-
Electronics: C+
Playability: A

.The Squier VM 72 Tele hits on all the marks and fulfills any guitar players dream to own a bit of Fender history. The neck is sweet with a touch of a soft V in the ample but not fat C shape neck. The pickups deliver and work great with tube amps and dirt pedals. You will find this to be your "go to" guitar for that sweet middle pickup selector sound. Light weight and great fit and finish. I did very little to this guitar other than change strings and set the bridge a bit lower. Is just a fine guitar and fun to play. There is no reason why you should wait to order one of these. The Custom Guitar's Friend Sales Person was super and was a pleasure to do business with.

.I felt compelled to do another review based on the replacement guitar that I received. The first one had spectacular wood, but neck and saddle issues. The second guitar has average looking wood, really nice fit and finish, smooth and polished frets, the correct sized saddles, and a nice neck (although I wish it were slightly wider). The pickups sound great, and the controls work well. All in all, this is a nice Thinline. I like it!

.Rather than echo the same positive comments and reviewers by others (which I appreciate), I'll get straight to my impression....this Squire Vintage Modified Tele is equal to or better than my Fender American Special Strat I bought almost two years ago in terms of overall quality, tone, and playablity. This Squire tele was in the "scratch & dent" category and because of the low cost, I really didn't expect a great guitar. Well...out of the re-opened box, all I could find wrong was a few finish spots where the final top finish was extended onto the darker edge of the F-hole (or the darker finish was incomplete), no big deal. But you really have to look for it, nothing else was wrong!

All I had to do for set up was take some bow out of the neck to reduce the high action...nothing else. On my American made Strat, some frets had sharp edges and some were too high....lots of neck work, along with bridge set up. I still have a buzz in the G-string I can't get out. That guitar cost 3x+ more than this Squire. Don't get me wrong, the Strat now is a very good guitar, but wow, this Squire is very impressive, ignoring cost. I really like those wide-range humbuckers and the hollow-body tone this thing makes. I can't believe how easy and fun it is to play.

I would have the same review even if I paid full price and the Squire Vintage Modified Tele was not a scratch & dent item. Somebody at Squire/Fender is doing a great job with design and quality control!! Buy one now before they raise the prices... ;-)

.When I unboxed this guitar, I was impressed by the fit and finish, and the beautiful wood pattern on the back. The frets were well dressed with no sharp ends. The neck felt great, beefy with a hint of "V". I plugged it into a Fender tube amp, and it sounded really good. The neck pickup had a slight "muddy" sound, but the middle and neck positions were fine. As I looked it over, I noticed that the headstock was not as wide as an American Standard Tele. Also, the saddles measured 2 1/8" instead of 2 1/16" which are needed to line up with the string holes through the body. The high "E" string is dangerously close to the edge of the neck, causing the string to slip off of the fret when playing a D chord. The neck does not widen out very much as it does on an American Standard, even though the nut width is the same. This causes the high "E" string to stay very close to the edge of the neck all of the way up. I really want to like this guitar, but the narrow neck makes it difficult to play. Changing the saddles for the correct size would help, but it won't correct the narrow neck problem. And the narrow headstock makes this Tele look deformed. I might keep it and swap out the neck.

.Quite simply, this is the best guitar for the money out there today! Squier has become a fantastic value as of late and they have really outdone themselves with this new Thinline model.

I love the gloss finish on the neck and the resonant feel of the guitar overall. The wide-range humbuckers are Fender branded. The action on the guitar out-the-box was perfect. Though it is Indonesian made, the fret dressing and workmanship is top notch. Tuners are vintage style, but hold tune well so far.

Only mod I'd make at this point would be new pots. The tone control is particularly scratchy. Small complaint in what is an incredible guitar for the money.

I have the sunburst finish and it looks beautiful with the white pearloid pickguard!
