The Classic Vibe Stratocaster '50s provides unmistakable '50s-era Fender vibe and tone. The alder body is available in a variety of finishes. The vintage-tint gloss-maple neck has a maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets and a modern 9.5" radius. The familiar tone comes from a custom set of alnico III single-coil pickups, clear and bright, with terrific sustain even in crunch mode. Custom staggered polepieces provide improved string-to-string balance.

Well it's been a few years('12) since I posted a review but I'm still playing it, still great. Friends, family and band mates all tried and liked it, one even went out and bought one. It may need a re-fret down the road but it's worth it. Still love it. It's part of my collection of axes. Thanks Fender for making Squier. Really can't go wrong with buying one. One downside is the price jumped considerably since I got mine.

I have one of these in sea foam green. It is wonderful and plays/sounds better than my MIM strat. Great value for a fine little axe.

Had got this as a gift back christmas 2012 and it is the best axe I've owned so far in life (I've never owned a Gibson or Fender yet). If you want versatility for a good price look no further. Can replicate the warm sound of a humbucker if you roll back the tone and eq your amp right, can do anything from SRV to Zeppelin and most other band in between. This guitar will be a main stay with me and nothing will ever make me sell it. Even when I own Gibson in the future this guitar will always be in my heart.

I just picked one of these up. Actually i got rid of my 1500 dollar fender for one of these because it made the fender look and sound foolish. These guitars are nothing short of amazing. I tried mine next to several american strats including a deluxe, a custom shop, a standard and they all didnt compare. And i am a DIE HARD FENDER STRAT GUY. Fender has really crapped the bed with quality lately. Time to get some lessons from the guys in china on how to build a nice guitar again.

Been playing for 30 plus years and own several guitars including USA Fender. This guitar is simply fantastic value. The factory set up was perfect and other than change the strings this guitar was ready to go. Definitely would recommend over a MIM for the price.

This is an exceptional guitar, (do not be discouraged by the Squier headstock), which I purchased from L&M in Jan 2014. I have been playing for 30 plus years and chose this over the MIM Strat. I own several guitars, including a Fender USA and this one is now my favourite. The set up was perfect out of the box which was a surprise. I would not hesitate to recommend this guitar to a beginner or semi-pro.

These strats hold their own with anything Fender has made in the last 30 years. Frets are perfect, as is finish & electronics. Plays and sounds great. These have to be cutting into Fenders main line sales.

I went into a Long & Mcquade looking to pick up the MIM Strat, but thought I'd give this Squier a chance before I made a purchase. What a relief I did ! This guitar is nothing short of excellent, the pickups are beautiful, rich and warm sounding, and the quality and craftmanship is quite nice as well. I couldn't justify spending more for the MIM when it really seemed like a lower quality guitar. This guitar is not only good for the price, but it is a great guitar in general ! Great Purchase

Buy it and you won't regret it. The quality quite surprised me. This comes from someone who has played for 40+ years and is/was a die hard Fender strat guy. Still own some but not for long. Will definitly pick up a few more of these for half of what I can sell one of my Fender strats for.

Fit and finish is top notch. Super straight neck and it sounds fantastic. I don't know how a strat can get any better then this. If you don't mind not having fender in big letters on the headstock you can't go wrong.

Everything about these guitars is outstanding ! The workmanship is as good as any MIM i tried. I spent a month looking, kept going back to the CV. Cannot be beat for the money. Great playability, great sounds/tones ! Had mine 3 months now and love it, seem to play it more than any of my other guitars. ( includes an Amer. Standard and Tele, and a Road Worn ) Best value by far IMHO

I had a Strat a few years ago and sold it for another guitar. I went to L&M to try some new Strats for fun. I tried Squiers/American/Mexican/ etc, I just kept drifting back to this one, regardless of price. Fantastic fretwork and neck, beautiful finish, sweet, singing tones, has it all. The 60's model has more stinging pickups if you want that Texas tone, these pups are more mellow and classic. Give one a try, you might be surprised, I know I was when I went home with one. Hope this helps, I love mine.

Bought this as a travel guitar so as not to risk my Tele or PRS. I have to say I am in love with it, sounds and plays great. I have played a lot of expensive guitars and this is every bit as good. No hesitation to gig with it. Awesome value for the money.
