So, this is a very very late NGD, but I'll still accept congratulations

This is your standard Squier Classic Vibe 50's Stratocaster, Olympic White with the gold anodized pickguard and aged white plastics, that I found horrendous.
I tried to get used to the look, but the more I tried, the less I liked the look of the guitar. So, the result is that I finally modified it to my taste. I've mostly just been playing this guitar for the time I've had it, it is an absolute player and outplays the MIMs I tried at other stores. The neck is a very nice fit to my hand and it isn't too bland-looking either. Love the sounds out of this guitar.

Being a former "LP-only" player, I'm surprised I haven't really owned a strat before. Consider me converted to the no man's land now then, I like them both. I actually like this one's neck more than my LP's, it's mainly due to the shape how it goes to the fretboard on both sides and yes, this gets more playtime due to CV being the easier to pick up and go to the living room noodling guitar. I play my LP more in the weekends and it's still my axe for band rehearsals. My LP is in D standard, my strat is in E. I play Deep Purple and Rainbow on this guitar mostly, but something else too.

Did I say it, yes I did, I love this guitar.... and now I love it even more that it has the looks that I really like. So, for the sound I'd give 4/5, it could be better, but not too much for this price I think. For the feel I give 5/5, absolute player. For the looks I give now 5/5, before it was 3/5. New looks, same sounds, absolutely great.

That fretboard looks super glossy. Is that a poly or something? Can't handle glasses boards... They get sticky.

Looks nice though. Olympic white + maple neck is secksy

Stay classy, pit.

This doesn't get too sticky though, it is poly all-over, as far as I believe. When it feels it's starting to feel a bit, I use GHS Fast-Fret, that helps.It stays nice and smooth on both sides, no need to really think about sanding the neck. I personally love the gloss board.

Thanks, I agree.

Cheers,

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

One, HNGD, I used to be a Les Paul/SG guy, but once I picked up my first Strat (that wasn't a Squier Bullet), I never looked back. I love the string spacing and the way it's body hugs yours, totally unlike a LP. Hope it treats you as well as my strats have treated me.

Stop ****ing my deal. I need the Gold PG for an actual project.


I wanna get in on that deal, actual Gold Anodized PGs are expensive!~
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

I'll pay shipping for the horrendous Gold anodized pickguard and aged White plastics.


I'm surprised someone is actually interested in those....

Thanks, it's a great world... or would be if said company did something about some of their piss poor products in a higher price range.

I'm actually considering sending them, but I would appreciate some money extra as I need to upgrade the tuners to locking ones.
